I'm the same way. I won't dish on my employer or spouse publicly while I'm still associated with them. Not out of fear for my paycheck, just because I think they deserve a certain amount of respect. They put up with my crap, after all.

My last job departure (mostly retirement) involved about 5 hours of debrief and a whole lot of paperwork saying that I couldn't talk publicly about anything until 2046.  I should last so long.

A few decades back, a coworker got hold of a bag of plastic ants and placed them all around the workstations and break room. One of the owners, who was drunk every afternoon, called an exterminator.

Those things kept turning up for years.

I had a boss who had plastic cockroaches on his desk. That's why it took a while before anybody realized that those things in the kitchen were actual, live cockroaches.

IT security smallshop in healthcare...That's the joke. (sorry, only a few plastic bugs) we get the *urgent* staff access disables, the routine access disables, the oops we didn't mean to please undisables, privacy audits, site visits, user education, incident handling & response, DLP babysiting, cursing the spam filter, avoiding making any changes to web filtering, IDS/IPS follies, bad CEH-ing and other duties as assigned. 5k+ users & 5 staff in our office. I was tempted to bail a month ago, but it turned out to be a smaller 24x7 MSS shop that wanted internal & external all of the above. No, nyet, nope and not worth a 2/3 pay jump to move into a 2x as expensive area into more stress. (but we did pretty princess tea party our CISO's office as payback for his 3 week vacation...visualize a bedazzled 1U server as well)

... and now I have an idea to prank our InfoSec manager. I've even got a (dead) server that I can pull the bezel from and 'accessorize', too. 😆

When I read your post without my glasses on, that last word looked like "bathrobes." Now, I'm picturing cockroaches in fluffy, white bathrobes while they chug their Red Bull laced coffee. (Hence becoming turbo charged.)
