Title: Brainstorm ways to kill yourself using the supplies in your office
Post by: Susan B. Anthony on May 11, 2006, 11:37:33 AM
Tomorrow we should inventory our desks to see what we could use to kill ourselves

I know this is old, but I will totally help with this list tomorrow!

Starting with the pencils I could use to poke my eyes out.

 :D I missed this yesterday!

I'm at the front desk now, there is soooo much potential.  Including licking the Clorox wipes the receptionist keeps up here until I ingest enough bleach to kill me.

This needs to be started again in a thread.

I wonder if it will kill me to eat an entire box of lotion infused kleenex.
Yes it does!
That might work.  Is Febreeze toxic?  :D

Maybe if you photocopied your head enough you'd get brain cancer. It would take a long time though.

Suffocate yourself with a giant plastic garbage bag.
Stab yourself repeatedly with a pair of chopsticks.
Slit your wrists with a dull dinner knife.
Throw yourself in front of a massive stampede of people.

But they lack horrific style points. I mean, they're messy, but they lack desperation/courage.

So, at work tonight, in honor of this thread that I was reading just before I left for work, I (and a friend) started brainstorming ways to kill ourselves.  But we soon found that it was much more fun to brainstorm ways to kill the boss.

Boss.

What about just puncturing yourself in the wrist with a pen?

One of the ideas was to hold a pen straight out in front of us a la Al Bundy with the spork and run straight into his back.  It was a fun, but vicious, evening.

And enjoy an early retirement

Good idea.  I will spend Saturday planning his demise.

Pleasure my boss's wife (who works for him and has been flirting with me-an intern of all people-incessantly) with my lady liberty paper holder and while doing so, making sure to place an envelope opener prominently on my desk, invite my boss into my office. Knowing my boss, this would certainly be a sure fire way to go about ending my life, which by the way I would never endanger by doing something like this.

well i'm not allowed to leave the front desk if i'm covering the phones, which is when i buzz people in

also, the front entrance is pretty isolated from the offices.  so I'd probably be the first person a crazy encountered even if I ran

Still, funny practical joke for your last day?

Yes, I think so!  Hopefully we'll get a crazy that day

Or a union organizer!!  We're not supposed to let them in either

Or both at once?!?!  (Crosses fingers hoping for a crazy to be let loose in ktja's boring office)

Post by: Pirate Pete on May 17, 2006, 08:00:23 PM
:D :D :D

that would be amazing


so when i was looking for jobs before i graduated, i interviewed with a few unions (i was working for a union at the time).  One of the unions asked me to get a job as a hotel worker and then be their secret inside organizer--and if i did well they might be able to put me on staff.

i said no.

That kind of sounds like fun...I love stirring the pot.  Speaking of which...I could kill myself by plunging head first into a gigantic 3 foot in diameter wok full of boiling oil.

you could spend all day thinking about being at UVA next fall.  js.

I do think about being at UVA next fall.  All the time.  There is just so much time that I can think of other things, too.  Like grocery lists, gourmet recipes, and new ways to die.

I wanted to smack him a little on the phone just now...he is so much more "musically tuned" than I am (which says a lot, because I am into music a lot more than most people) and kept emailing me songs that I was supposed to listen to, while on the phone reminding him to keep the commentary silent so I could listen, until I said, "enough, it's 2 in the morning!"

I tell you Veg I actually stopped making "Kill me now" and "I hate my life" comments after someone I knew was tragically killed. I  guess I feel it's disrespectul to complain about "hating my life" when some people don't have lives to complain about -- if that makes sense.

1. Spray can of RAID roach killer into mouth until dead of convulsions.

2. Repeatedly drink toilet water until killed by E. coli bacterium.

3. Break glass of computer monitor and eat until dead.

4. Find old, rotten food in refrigerators on multiple floors and eat. (Best combined with #2.)

5. Hurl self down cement steps of emergency-exit stairwell.

it might bother me a little.  might be more pronounced at the same school.  hopefully not too much.  i've got a few things under my belt that i'm pretty proud of, so i should be able to let it go.

Just him, yes, and I'm not sure why the competitive streak does not extend to other people.  Well, it will be cool if she can help you out, then.

that's interesting.  i always thought that it was guys that had those kinds of insecurities.

I always hated that a guy could have those kinds of insecurities about someone because of her gender, which is why it bothers me that it bothers me.

eh, guys like being on top.

Doesn't this bother you?

not really.  i'm actually a pretty traditional guy, so such things don't annoy me too much.  sorry.  :(

It's okay...my G.C. is so laid back that such things in either direction don't annoy him much, so I understand  :D

okay.  i was worried about offending you.  :)

i think part of it for guys is also that we feel like we need to protect/care for our female companions, and it upsets us when we're not capable of doing so effectively.  old-fashioned, definitely, but i still think it holds true to some extent.

I'm sure that it does.  Your girlfriend the traditional sort or the more liberal, feminist sort?

Sounds like a cool chick, did she post on here last year?

On this whole traditional v. feminist discussion: I'm a traditional feminist.  Traditional in the sense that I want my boyfriend to open doors for me, lift heavy objects etc.  Feminist in the sense that I don't mind being the "breadwinner" (if I have win any bread.)

Bread is delicious  ;D

Mmmmm....bread :)

I certainly don't mind guys lifting heavy objects for me, but that's more a matter of biology.  It irritates me when I walk by, obviously struggling with something heavy, and a guy doesn't offer to help.
