Halloween Special Delivery

I know what you're thinking - ''that's Martini!'' Well... Stop it.

Work is sometimes a tedious thing that needs disruption to become exciting again. Not that work is an excitement-inducing thing, but if you're not having fun or excitement at work, you're probably going to look back at your life 60 years from now and think "why?".

Then, suddenly, while lying in a long-term care facility, you will bite it.

And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Death is neat. It's like a roller coaster. It scares the crap out of some people, and doesn't even phase some others. And regardless of how you feel about it, fun stuff comes from death in many forms, including the most bestest time of year - Hallowe'en.

But some people have too much fun with death and Halloween. Some people have an obsession with it. And if some people don't stop having Hallowe'en based packages delivered to him (or her) in the workplace, the fraidy-cats are going to have a mass freak-out.

If this person wants to avoid that kind of unwanted behaviour from "the norms" at work, he (or she) better start concealing his (or her) boxes under his (or her) desk - or at least tell the stock room guy not to deliver this gory stuff in the middle of the day. This person simply doesn't know what sort of creepy thing or severed body part is going to strike panic into the hearts of his (or her) co-workers.

On the other hand, people shouldn't be afraid of gruesome, horrific, terrifying latex Halloween props. After all, they aren't real. They're just for fun, created by some twisted mind in the hopes that some even twisteder mind out there will find enjoyment in it. And use it to scare the bejesus out of those fraidy-cats.

It's not even October yet and you're prepping for Halloween?

I love gory, ghoulish, horror and scary things... too bad I'm staying in the wrong country. There's not Halloween here... fo sho.

Martini writes...'if you're not having fun or excitement at work, you're probably going to look back at your life 60 years from now and think "why?".'

Martini means...'if you've just been delivered a severed hand and have the chance to leave it in the stationery cupboard for Brenda from Accounts to find, you should think "why not?".

Nobody celebrates Halloween here in the UK either. Nobody I know anyway (I'm getting someone else to fetch my stationery just in case).

Venge - wow, I'm very sorry to hear that. I think I'd die with no Halloween.

Richard - you're brilliant. I might have to accidentally leave a few bloody limbs lying around. On their own, they might frighten a few. But, in conjunction, imagine what a well-placed "You're next" sticky-note might do!

The proliferation of fake blood and silcone wounds makes the faking of industrial accidents in order to freak out the office girls much easier this time of year too!!

What?! That's not me in the picture. My... I mean his (or her) identity has been expertly disguised with the use of professional pixelation!
