Editorial: I Can’t Wait To Get Off Work, Knock Back Some Beers, And Go On A Violent Rampage

Ah. 4:30 PM. Just another half hour and I can get out of this hellhole, run home, drink a few beers, and go on a heinous violent rampage.

I can’t wait! The rat race really has me down today. Arnold needed me to finish the expense reports before the afternoon meeting, while at the same time Tim needed me to manage the investor’s meeting.

That’s why after I go home and chug a case of beer, I’m going to pick fights with strangers on the street! And knock down trash cans and mailboxes!

Traffic was a nightmare this morning. And of course my bosses were furious when I came in only 6 minutes late.

That’s why after I get home and down a fifth of Hennessy, I’m going to stomp through downtown like The Hulk, smashing everything I see. Yelling and banging my fists against my chest. I might kill someone! I honest to God, might kill someone tonight.

Come on, 5:00!
