There's an employee here who isn't the brightest knife in the shed, so to speak. He's good at his job, he's a perfectly nice guy, just not so bright. Like the kind of not so bright that he really didn't understand why an electrical engineer with a degree would start out making more money than he made as a janitor for the past 20 years. This started a few months ago when I inadvertently said "have a nice weekend" to him on Wednesday. He couldn't figure that out. Eventually I convinced him it was Friday. He came back to the office 15 minutes later informing me that I was pulling his leg- that he KNEW it was Wednesday... I just had him going on a great story that the lead PC Support tech was punching out people that asked for new keyboards. Yes, a huge Kung-Fu fight broke out, and much violence ensued. At first he didn't believe it. Especially the part about the 300 lb 50 year old lady flying across the room kung fu-ing everybody that got in her way. But he actually started biting on it to the point where I think he actually thought some of it happened. Him: "Wasn't he counselled for that?" Me: "For what?" Him: "For slapping the guy?" Me: "He didn't slap him, he punched him clean out." Him: "Was he suspended?" Me: "The guy was talkin' smack- what was he supposed to do?" Him: "He asked for a keyboard." Me: "Whatever, he was trying to punk him out. He don't play those games." He did fully swallow that this nice, soft spoken lady in the office blackjacked one of the housekeeping guys during a fight. I just happened to choose a guy that (unbeknownst to me) has had episodes of physical violence.
