I was thinking about disgruntle workers and the time the mailman went beserk which led me to the following question.

Which Cyburbinite would you not want to go postal at the place where you work?

Easy: El Guapo 8-!

Fortunately, I also think he would be one of the least likely to do so. :-}

I agree. However, he is starting to come over from the dark side. I hear he even wears pink shirts now.

I'd go with Prudence....I think he'd be scary if he went postal. ;-)

Rumpy, definitely, Rumpy!

I could see him doing it in a very personal, painful way....like with a machete, so he can look into the eyes of the victims. 8-!

What has he got to lose? ;-)

My glass eye?

I wouldn't want to lose this :f: :-# 8-! ;-)



I was going to vote Maister, but a guy with a duck can't be all that bad ;-) . Actually michaelskis because he looks ready to kill Teresa's sperm donor;).

Rumpy's got it out for me!!!!
The fact remains, though, that I have been voted in my office three years running now as 'most likely to Go Postal' - what can I say?

I think SAC would be a fairly nasty customer... if he went postal in an office of yuppies or a parking garage full of suvs or in any number of chain stores.

I would have to say Maister. Mainly because he is a former Marine, married to a lawyer, and he is just about on the edge of going postal with his work load right now. (We worry about him when he starts rocking back and forth in his chair muttering things in an undetermined language) The scary part is we share a cubicle wall, and he is not thrilled when I leave Rush Limbaugh on my radio when I leave for lunch.

*on the other hand, maybe I would be worried about if I went postal... I am just a little too happy to be doing code enforcement.

Hmmm.. so was my ex-, only the voters were the bailiffs at the courthouse.
Gee, Maister, you are starting to pull ahead in the postal poll... ;-)

And every Marine is a qualified rifleman.

Mike
Pink is just but one color on the infinite spectrum of mankind's concisiousness. el Guapo wears many shirts, none have USPS angrily sewn upon the breast.





Nice CYA in the second sentence SGB Now, where exactly do you work?

I can't imagine him going *postal* in the office, but Our Exalted Leader has everybody's addresses in a data base; knows the internet well enough to *ping* our bosses computers every 0.5 second; and could feature us in a "Why (______) is Going to Hell #" in the FAC. Now, that could be scary :-D

SAC in a line of stopped traffic with Buffys and Thads in Mercedes SUVS all talking on the cell phones while drinking star bux? PRICELESS!
