Tradition

"Have you seen this?" Faith tossed a newspaper down on Andrew's desk.

"Yeah, Dolores gave me the details." He didn't look up from his computer. "I've been trying to find out if the idiot belongs to us or not all morning."

Faith sat back in a chair and sighed. "Discovering the dark side of tequila or recalling your behaviour at the Christmas party via the company intranet are rites of passage. Accidentally cutting off a finger while sword-fighting with your dumb mates, not so much."

Andrew shrugged. "Could be if you work around here. Wouldn't be the first time."

That's why they don't give us swords where I work.

I have a crowbar on my desk at work. One of my more annoying colleagues nearly removed an even more annoying colleague's head with it.

Apparently that's a rougher crowd than I ever imagined. Although who am I to say? Almost everyone I work with carries a gun.

Wouldn't be the first time
And it certainly won't be the last!

Maybe you should just stick to the catapult and a collection of 'head friendly' projectiles ;)

I managed to get more ammo for the cattle pult (yes, it does fling tiny, adorable cows), but the three spinning disks for the black cyclone have gone AWOL and not even an enthusiastic 13-year-old boy could ferret them out for me.

On the plus side of that operation, my boss' son now thinks I'm the coolest person in the office.

So you're much less likely to ever get fired ??

Depends on whether or not she views my influence as the corrupting of minors or not.
