POW! Right in the kissah!
Who hasn't silently dreamed of decking their bosses? Me, of course -- shout-out to the top brass at Elite Daily who keep me on my toes and not homeless!
But aside from me, I'm sure at some point most people have had day dreams where they sock their boss in the face when they're asked to stay late to finish up on work, or are reamed out for coming in a few minutes after 9 am.
A heroic Reddit user actually got a chance to do this over Halloween.
Who cares if she did it accidentally? The important part is that she now has that experience.
YerMomsASherpa got to share her story in the "Today, I fucked up" subreddit, and it's kind of blowing up.
Our office is set up really strange and to get to the women's restroom you have to walk through a large dimly lit storage area and pass through a couple of doors. I had just finished washing my hands and turned to reach for the door to leave. Suddenly the door was flung open and scared the ever loving shit out of me. I guess my fight or flight chose fight because the next thing I know I'm wildly swinging a right hook. I punched my boss, who was dressed as a witch for Halloween, in the jaw/neck as we screamed at each other.
FRAZIER (read: that lady's boss)!
Things didn't exactly end well for her though. It was an accident, so she never got written up.
She did however mention that she has to follow extra protocol when going to the bathroom, or even just opening doors. She finished up her Reddit story, saying,
We've now had two 'safety meetings' about preventing future incidents, they've made laminated signs and taped them to the bathroom door that say 'Please open SLOWLY' and every woman in the office now announces themselves every time they come in or out of the office. I got a verbal warning from HR and I'm now too afraid to use the office restroom because I don't know if I can be trusted when startled. I sat through a meeting about it dressed as a bumble bee and trying to not laugh and cry at the same time.
So, on second thought, maybe don't go Muhammad Ali on your boss.
