One of my employees had a bit of an anger management problem. He has frequent bouts of ranting and yelling when things don’t go his way. He will even throw things on occasion. He once broke a computer monitor when he threw a stapler during one of his fits. Everyone knows about his temper, and frequently jokes about it when he isn’t around.
This week’s rant is a scheduling dispute. Short version is that he doesn’t like his schedule and is taking it as a personal attack. He made the statement “I’m tired of getting screwed. Everyone responsible needs to die a painful death.” I had enough and went to the supervisor. She replied: “I didn’t hear the death threats. The other stuff is just how he is. He’s been saying that stuff for years and hasn’t done anything.”
So I am carrying a handgun to work, in violation of policy. Hard to do in scrubs. I have a S&W Bodyguard .380 in a Graystone holster tank top underneath my scrubs. It is the only gun I own that is small enough not to show under the thin material of hospital scrubs.
