who the wuc are the gunslingers?

The cool kids at work, a guy and girl, are six feet tall and wander in each morning (shooting finger guns), like a couple of gunslingers who don’t care if the sheriff is in or not. They’re high on espresso and ambition, while I’m akin to Phil Connors in Groundhog Day.

In my experience, offices are psychotic and allies can slowly turn on you – like the fireplace in Indiana Jones, where suddenly you find yourself staring at a bunch of Nazis.

Such is the case with these charlies, who were hellbent on recruiting me from the beginning; but have since become nervous by how much dirt I have on them. Now they eye me like a pair of dirty cops … scared I’ll turn them in to Internal Affairs.

It’s just a matter of time before I take two in the back of the head.

  1. I know it’s mixed referencing, but I can’t help but hear Morricone when reading that. Great stuff!
    “You see in this world there’s two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.” Ya dig?

  2. Hahaha that’s a GREAT description! Do they walk in together, a la Butch & Sundance/Boondock Saints, or do they actually shoot imaginary pistols…alone? (what courage/social ineptitude that would take!). And, I toootally misread that last sentence as, “It’s just a matter of time before I take the two of them back to bed.” I appreciate the 2-bullet assassination reference more (perhaps the coroner would even find that the bullets came from different angles). :P

    1. Wucca wucca wucca. Major props for the Boondock Saints ref. It’s a mutual shooting to be sure, they’re too yellow to be pistolling alone, yo.

wot say you?
