I have almost everyone in the office doing that annoying slow bacn-and-forth chair rocking that emits an annoying squeaky door sound.
We're practicing for when our boss comes back from vacation on Monday.

I once had a coworker with a bird whistle noise as his notification for receiving a text. I was the maintainer of some in-house software, so I found a gif of the noise and added it to play when a button in the about menu was clicked. So he would get a text and then there would be a chorus of bird whistles from a bunch of other cubicles. Sometimes we'd play it just to make him think he got a text. Good times.
When we had a baby, we took over a used baby stroller with squeeking wheels that I should have oiled before we took it into use. It didn't happen until the little girl started making squeaking sounds, just like the sounds from the wheels. I don't remember whether that was before or after she learned to say "mommy" and "daddy", but when she started squeeking, I dug out the old oil can.
Old memories ... It sure was a good idea to write down such things when they happened. I really enjoy digging up my old daddy's notes from those days.
My default project is edited to include "Treat warnings as errors: All" and "Warning level: 4", as well as ticking "XML documentation file" - which gives a error if I forget the XML header for a public item.
If your code has warnings, there is probably something you haven't thought of ... particularly if you are a beginner.
