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.
