Oddly I didn't even pay much

attention to the smoking bit. It was "and they do want you to die" part. Ive worked to much customer service, the product being sold has nothing to do with it...

There are a few of those out there...

'and they do want you to die'.

I might not go quite that far, but they will push one to the limits, beyond which point strangling does seem a fully reasonable option.

Takes too long...

by dawgit In reply to There are a few of those ...

While a bit less messy strangling takes up way too much time, and sometimes they do tend to strugle if they realize it's not really part of the program. Most of the time a simple 'woop-up-'side-da-head' does the job. (atatude adjustment) Something like that can be excused as a 'reflex' action, whereas a slow strangled death it is often hard to offer a defence, unless of course they really deserved it. -d

I once took a Broadsword to work with me ...

It seemed to scare the living sh1t out of most print production staff that day.

For FOUR years they thought it was in the boot (trunk) of my car.

THAT shut the bastards up and led to a convivial work environment.

I should add, it happened in Surrey, England. I was the only Scot!

Was it a broadsword?

by NickNielsen In reply to I once took a Broadsword ...

Or a claidheamh m?r? ?

Not that it probably made much difference to the production staff.

Very good Nick - I'm impressed ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Was it a broadsword?

No, it wasn't a Claymore as it didn't have a baskethilt (the claw shaped hand-guard).


No-one ever dared to ask me if it was still in the boot of the car!! It wasn't.

Nowadays you can get arrested for carrying a pen knife, though there is still a shop in Inverness selling Claymores. Go figure!

You wouldn't be involved in the selling of Firearms, or other things that go boom, would you? -d

No, but I had and interesting conversation

by Dumphrey In reply to hummmm

with my dad last night. Apparently my cousins kids were setting off fire crackers in a DC suburb, three cop cars showed up claiming to have had reports of gun fire. When I was growing up, we had both guns and fireworks, and people knew the difference... My 86 year old aunt hobbeled out and yelled at the cops.
Anyway, where I was going with this is, the "concerned citizen" who phoned in the "gun shots" was almost 100% to be a grumpy *** that never tips, always complains, and gets crappy service everywhere, AND HAS NO IDEA WHY!!! Sigh, I guess its the social LCD effect.
