If you haven’t seen this story already, basically on Monday a student in Germany attacked some Hell’s Angels with a puppy, then took off on a stolen bulldozer.
I know, pretty standard stuff, right?
Here’s where it gets interesting. A few co-workers and I began to consider whether that could be a viable tactic for dealing with management: If we hurled a puppy at a group of them, would that solve our managerial problems?1
We determined that no, that wouldn’t solve anything, since we’d have wasted a perfectly good puppy. The suggestion was then made to fling giant hissing cockroaches instead, but those, too, were deemed too good for the managers. Eventually we hit upon a solution: We would chuck two groups of managers at each other, preferably using catapults on neighboring skyscrapers for maximum damage.
There, problem solved.
I doubt we’ll actually go through with it, though. I mean, if we can’t flee the scene on a stolen bulldozer, what’s the point?
1 Not that we have a problem with all managers — my current one is quite good, in fact — but when managers huddle together in a group, it’s scientifically proven that they congeal into one vile, soul-sucking mass, and therefore, it’s perfectly acceptable to throw things at them.
