Providing cold air is not the only thing that these beauties are capable of doing. They can relieve boredom in no end of ways. Here are just a few.
Styling Your Hair
Obviously this depends on the power of your fan, the stronger the better! You can grab your comb or hairbrush and a mirror and find your new style. If that’s not enough for you then why not try the Baywatch look and let the wind flow through that mane of yours and take a quick snap for your friend’s enjoyment!
The Baywatch look is just the tip of the iceberg, you can exchange pictures with your friends all day in all sorts of funny and amusing poses with the wind styling your hair for you!
Once upon a time this was everyone’s favourite phone or iPod game, now you can play for real in your office. Set your fan up a fair distance from a bin and just chuck those screwed up documents and pages of doodles.
Why not get your mates involved and get them to change the speed of the fan for that added challenge? Who knows you might be crowned office champion with the highest score of the week. The possibilities for paper toss are limitless (almost).
So your paper plane doesn’t fly very far. You’re stuck in the age before the jet and you don’t know how to get out of it. The answer is the humble desk fan.
You could (if you’re good at engineering) set your fan to boost the flight of your plane. Once you’ve cracked it, it won’t be long before you’re crowned office Wright brother.
If engineering really is your strong point, you could develop airmail for your office. Set them up in strategic locations, pop your note in the plane and fire it across the office to its desired recipient (just remember to blunt the end, your boss might not be impressed if the work force are blinded).
It seems ironic to be calling your spot in the office the hotspot when your desk fan is whirring away but with the help of a desk fan you can make your desk the hottest property in the office.
The more fans you have the better. The aim is to make your office spot so cool that other people simply can’t stay away. It might be the best thing you’ve ever done…especially after that feeble attempt at small talk with your office crush at the water cooler last week. She’ll be over in no time when she discovers your desk is the place to chill.
There are of course many other ways to have fun with a desk fan and this time of year is perfect to discover them.
If you have any ideas for funny uses of fans then why not leave them below. Other people might be inspired by your fan-tastic thoughts!
