Go hard or go Gnome!

I worked with a difficult person a few years ago. I tried to have fun with him. I even gave him a small plastic gnome holding a gun.

He seemed ambivalent towards the gnome. I was challenged.

I took the gnome after about a week and left this:

“Ransom Notice

Put $5 in unmarked $1 chocolate coins in utility room 2, level 38 by 3.00 pm friday 6.1.12 or the gnome gets it

Gnome: DO WHAT THEY SAY”

He ignored me.

I picketed his desk with protesting gnomes.

BRING HOME GNOMEO!
GO HARD OR GO GNOME!
GMONES > ECOGNOMICS!
OCCUPY DESK!

LEAVE NO GNOME BEHIND!

WE WILL FIGHT FOR OUR GNOME!

The man remained unmoved. He had no soul. No poetry. No humour.

The gnomes vanished when I was not in the room.

Never a word was said.

When he left soon after to persue a new ‘career’, he sent out an invitation to entire company to join him in goodbye drinks.

Except – he removed 8 people from the invite list.

I was one of those eight.
I am proud of that.
