My office will be going out for paint ball outing after office hours today. However, I will not be joining them. When the email was going around asking if anyone was interested, I’d already to told the organiser that I would not be going, citing that my anger management is at an all time low and I worry for the safety of my colleagues if I did go.
They think that I was joking when I told them that I might get too carried away and injure someone, when in fact I was being absolutely serious. I have issues with some of the people I work with and handing me a gun, albeit just a paint ball gun, is not a smart thing to do. They said that, since there’s a limited amount of ammo that is given to us, there’s not much damage that I can do.
I have a savage side that I conceal and repress for the safety of everyone. If I’m out of blood, I will go all out to kill you. So what if I run out of ammo? I’ll just clobber you on the head with the gun until you pass out and then steal your gun. Then I’ll go after the others. Therein lies the danger. Do I really want to risk going berserk when everyone else is just there to have fun? I don’t think so.
It’s not that I’m afraid of getting shot. In fact, I think that I would enjoy paint ball very much. I just find that going with the people I work with, may not be the smartest of ideas especially if you have unresolved issues. My enjoyment of paintball depends on the people I go with.
If the Adventure Crew is going to organise a paintball thing, then I’m all in.
