I wish there was annother DBA here so I could try this one out. 

Here's a trick we played on someone last week.   If they leave their machine unlocked, and have three monitors, swtitch the outer monitors.  Left -> right and right -> left.  It's simple and fast, and annoying as hell until they figure it out.
