So, working in a bureaucracy can be . . . horrible. Things that make perfect sense to you, things that are reasonable, and should be clear cut become convoluted and complicated. That’s why, being the wonderful and benevolent boss that I am, I bought Nerf guns.
I bought one for everyone in the office. Ross says this is not really a good idea in the work place but, honestly, they feel better. It makes the people come into my office who are angry feel better. Shooting off a few NERF darts at a white board, relieves quite a bit of stress. My employees get two 15 minute breaks. If they want to spend it in my office, playing with the NERF gun and reducing their blood pressure, I’m not going to argue.
I even bought one for my boss. He didn’t give it back.
