Lawyers Scare Workers with BB Gun Fights
by Michael Fox
I have to admit the lead of today's story in the Springfield, Missouri News-Leader was intriguing:
St. Louis — When police officers responded to a call in St. Louis County, they found women hiding under desks, in their cars and closets at an office building, some saying they had seen two men carrying handguns.
But Melinda Hagaman, who works in the building, told authorities not to worry.
"I knew it had to be the lawyers from down the hall," she told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in Tuesday's edition. Police said two lawyers who work in the building apparently took part in a BB gun fight on Friday.
While I had hoped this article might lead to a heretofore unknown tactic for subduing disruptive employees, alas, it was, as one of the 'guilty parties' admitted, just another lawyer "acting like an idiot."
Could we make this stuff up?
