Somewhere in Seattle, a man is contemplating violence against his former co-workers. I know this because he came up to me and told me, last night. When he wasn’t telling me about how his hand hurt because he’d punched someone earlier. When he told me of his plans to buy a gun and go shooting, I tried to offer alternatives, but he was quite convinced that he “had fucked himself”. Then he said he drank to much. There’s something odd about extolling the value of AA, while I’m holding a drink. But I’m not the guy who burned his own bridges, but still blames “the stupid people”.
Eventually he wandered off, though he came back to ask me to dial his phone for him, so he could booty call his ex, but his battery died as it was ringing.
I worry he was serious about his intentions for violence; it sounds like he isn’t shy about it though, so hopefully his associates are aware and prepared. Hopefully.
