If you want to slap someone...

A real conversation in my office today...

Volunteer: "I just read the greatest thing. It says, 'If you really want to slap someone, just do it and say there was a mosquito.'"

I sent that to a few colleagues.

One wrote back, "Yeah, but there aren't any mosquitoes this time of year. So you can't slap anyone at the event Saturday."

My volunteer replied, "Take a Sharpie and make a little black dot on your hand. Then say, 'See?'"

Hey, that volunteer is a real problem solver! Or a violent psycho. One of the two.

A volunteer to be watched. Their idea has charm though...

Too little (knowledge) too late. Boy could I have used this idea earlier on.

I might be the lone wolf in your rather pacifist crowd...but I have done this. And you can easily replace the word "mosquito" with "fly", "bee" or "stupidity". Sadly, only the first three come off...

ok as an HR professional that sounds so wrong and yet, so amazingly necessary sometimes!!!!!!

Riot Kitty said...

Well! I should definitely post this volunteer's advice more often, eh?
