    If they were badly dressed and out of fashion, then yes...a little stab in the back would be an appropriate action.

    I prefer psychological warfare . . . . delete the critical files for the time-sensitive project he's working on, and watch him panic.

    Offices like that usually have high turnover and lower quality work.

    I've trolled, grief, mic spammed, anything you can imagine to annoy fellow players. The simplest way to piss off a gamer is by closing a door in front of them.

    Guaranteed laughs among your friends!

    Because it's just a game and has no correlation to real life.

    Just as last night I attacked and sacked the city of Milan in a computer game but have no plans on doing the same in the real world.

    I leave that job to upper management. I have my honor. If I don't like a coworker, I don't deal with them. I might work with them, but if management pulls them aside and scolds them for something, it puts a smile on my face knowing I'm not responsible, and karma is still my favorite bitch.

    I work in a hospital. We don't need apps. We do fine in real life stabbing each other in the back. Hospital politics suck.

    This is just another reason why we have become polarized and the world is always at war. If nothing else we should be esteaming one another; how about that for an app?

    Let's just state it this way ..
    I was quite willing to spend the time
    (as a Supervisor)
    to document THOROUGHLY
    any who decided to follow the backstabbing tactic on the job ..
    I made sure there was more than enough reason for them to be GONE .. FIRED ..
