Dude, velcro tipped nerf darts STING!

I've lost count of the number of nerf guns we have in the office now.

The new guy went out at lunch and bought a new CS-35 Raider, cuz the guy sitting behind him has one, and he had to be equally armed.

So, now, in the office we have (at the very least and by no means limited to):

Two NERF DART TAG Speedload 6 Blasters.

Art!guy and IT!guy, who are really the little boys of the office.

One NERF N-STRIKE LONGSTRIKE CS-6

Philosopher!guy, who can hold forth on a variety of topics and discuss morality and philosophy on one breath and shoot you in the head with the next.

One NERF NSTRIKE RECON CS-6

Bitter!guy. Who shoots me in the head just cuz.

Which is fair I guess. Since when he annoys me, I load up my Maveric and unload the entire barrel on him. At point blank range. With as many head shots as possible. It's a thing.

One NERF N-STRIKE NITE FINDER EX-3

Which was the Christmas gift I bought for Art!guy but was stolen by Bitter!guy.

At least 4 or 5 NERF N-STRIKE MAVERICK REV-6 (two of which I bought) and one of which lives at my desk. The others seem to float around the office betwixt and between DA, DEV and QA.

One NERF DART TAG SWARMFIRE

This is one of IT!guy's favorite toys - he loves to bring it out when a fire fight starts and just shoot the hell out of EVERYONE.

Two new NERF N-STRIKE RAIDER RAPID FIRE CS-35

These belong to the New Guys who I have not yet had time to name.

I know there are more guns in the satellite DA office that we opened across the street, cuz Office!mom bought a whole whack of guns in her first week and since she's babysitting that office now, that's where they live.

There have been at least 3 firefight a day for the last week or so. Today, it was more like there were three breaks in the ongoing firefight. I actually had to yell at people to STOP SHOOTING WHEN I'M ON THE PHONE, KTHKS!

Then I went to talk to IT!guy about my ongoing, pending request to get an on-air light so I can light it up when I'm on the phone and people know that they need to hold off for a bit.

*loves job*

*loves office*

Heh. We had somebody come in today to interview to replace a guy who's leaving. My desk is across from the manager's office where said applicant was coming.

As she was coming up from the front Mgr says to us, "OK, Haley, you play with your tentacle ball; Anna, you wear your hard hat; Suzanne and Stacey, you guys fight over the golden tamarind; Karen, you say hugely inappropriate things in your outside voice. Be yourselves." *snerk*

LOL!

Sounds like your workplace and my workplace would get along.

Oh yeah. Many's the time I've been doing a phone interview and had to pause it for a few seconds with the explanation "there's a lot of hilarity going on around me." And with the dang open plan office design, only half-cubicles, if I'm doing a face-to-face interview I set it up to meet at a coffee shop (unless it's somebody who already knows us all well).

For example, overheard across the newsroom today, cop beat reporter on phone to sheriff's office PIO: "Troy are you talking to me in the bathroom? *squeak* OKcallyoubackinafewminutes" That of course is Karen of the Outside Voice. :D
