You think I can't extract my own head from the waste disposal unit? [20080212|13:13]
Mad Scientess Jane Expat

Suppose you are sitting in your office with the door to the adjacent room shut, because your colleagues are having a meeting. This so-called "meeting" begins to get rather heated. You are distracted and mildly annoyed. You contemplate action.

Poll #1137236 What to do?

Noisy "discussion" between colleagues. Best method of conflict resolution?

Slide note under door reading: "Being loudest does not make you right."
Walk in with tape measure, announce, "All right lads, we're resolving this for good."
After ensuring safety of favorite stapler, set building on fire.

Seems like the answer is entirely dependent on how filthy you want the nanila fanfics to get this week.

I should have said "Vernier calipers" instead of "tape measure", shouldn't I. Damn!

You think this is bad, you wait until we actually start doing the work!

I'll probably be upstairs permanently. If I can still hear you then, replace "tape measure" with "lump hammer".

As satisfying as it might hypothetically be to incinerate noisy co-workers, it doesn't make your work environment particularly peaceful either.

That's a really good idea. I bet I could silence them instantly with a well-timed "What ho, chaps!"

Additionally, I think a stick and a bag of marshmallows would be ideal accessories to Option 3.

I figured if I'd put "All of the above", everyone would have picked that, which is almost as bad as ticky boxes. ;-)

My desk. Those are my keys and my sunglasses for proof.
