You were. Hopefully, the others will see this and not be afraid to speak up.

Just depends. Is she a Helga/Beverly, or a Jessica/Lindsay/other hot chick name?
Hey now, now name discrimination. I'll have you know there's a Beverly at my work, and she is absolutely stunning.

Reminds me of when I used to live in Alaska. One of my brothers was coming up to visit (go Salmon fishing) and he called to ask me what type of pistol or rifle I carried while out in the wilds.

I carry my Ruger Mark II .22LR with a couple of extra mags.

He said I should switch to something a lot larger, like a 454. Casull or .480 Ruger, since the .22LR would not stop a bear.

I told him I did not like the added weight of a pistol that size, along with the reloads. Besides it wasn't for shooting the bear, it was for the people I was fishing with.....with any luck the bear will stop to check out the noise. So like they say up there you don't need to be faster than a bear, just faster than the other guy.

My friends started laughing and said why do you think we bring you....you're a cripple and can't run worth a darn.

It was a common joke up there, and sometimes involved a Moose instead of a bear.

I have had some office co workers that I have serious doubts about risking life and or limb for both male and female. I like to think that I would stop to help, but it would really depend on the circumstances.

Unfortunately the choice of using office furniture (chairs and desk/file cabinet drawers comes to mind) as a weapon was not given, I suppose my choice would be the keyboard.

My office usually had shovels, hammers and other CE type tools stuck in the corners as well as military pioneer tools (shovel, an axe and a pick-axe), but they were starting to phase them out in favor of something more compact.
“Complacency kills. Paranoia is the reason I’m still alive.” If we do happen to make contact, I expect nothing less than gratuitous violence from the lot of ya.

I chose the monitor/desktop. Just because there's something to be said for keeping it simple in a high stress/panic situation, and nothing says simple like using a large heavy object to smash things.

Fortunately the only office I work in these days is at home, I have a lot better options at hand this way. :clap:

You successfully articulated the issue I was having with the thread. It's not just women who get tired of the same unfunny "jokes".

Hmm, grabbing the scissors first sounds good, maybe if I have a steel ruler, wrap one end in tape as a handle. Then dash for the janitor's closet for broom and mop handles and anything else that would work as a long weapon.

I'm sitting here looking at 3 stanchions. Hard to hold onto but I'm sure I could figure something out. I hit my shin with one when I was moving it damn things are sold!

Also the airline industry LOVES old skool stuff. We have hundreds of dot matrix printers, I'll use that over a keyboard.

Since my secretary is typically in her office, several blocks away from my main office (which is a pickup) or several blocks further from my physical office - I'd go with what's handy.
Using your list - the power cable from the pc to the staple for flail.
Reality - the 1911 on my hip or the rifle behind the seat of my truck, or the machete in the tool box, or the estwing 'hawk attached to my ems jump bag, or the 8 lb sledge in the toolbox, or the catch pole in the crib, or any of the larger wrenches in the toolbox, or the hydrant key under the seat.....

My guys gripe that there's not a lot of room in my truck . I think when the city replaces it next year I'm going to up the bid to a crew cab. As it is, I've got the typical cross bed tool box, a single side box and a smaller knack type job box that gets swapped out for either my porta-kennel or skid rig.
