JAMMING THE DOCK

Annoyance Factor 8: This is just one of those things that make people crazy, because without getting your hands dirty, there's really no quick way to undo the damage, and it takes a long time and a lot of clicking to get things back to the way they were. Start by looking through the victim's hard drive until you find a folder with lots of items from one application (for example, any folder with 50 or more files qualifies, but think, “the more, the merrier!”). Shift-click to select files in groups of 10, and then drag them to the Dock. Repeat this with as many files as you like, until your victim has countless items in the Dock. Not only will this make their Dock microscopic in size, but there's only one way (short of some serious under-the-hood system tweaks) to get these items back out of the Dock—dragging them out one by one. A full reinstall is probably faster. This is something you should probably save for your last day at your current job, for obvious reasons.
