    My libtarded company strikes again.

    The company is allowing those who want to dress up on Halloween to do so. Here is the message they sent out.

    "A reminder for those dressing up on Thursday: costumes must be work appropriate and can not include any weapons."

    My response.

    "I assume this is referring to no real weapons to be used as a prop with a costume?"

    Company response.

    "This includes no fake or toy weapons. Items such as plastic guns, bow and arrows, knives, etc. are not allowed. Absolutely nothing that could be confused as a weapon."

    That is the burden we bear for having to work.

    If it were not that, it would be something else.

    I would not be confused that a toy is not a real weapon but apparently others there would be.

    I have never worked for a company that had a restriction like this for Halloween but this should not surprise me. Our main office is in CA so some of their BS filters down here to Texas.

    I am retired. My costume includes a loaded Colt SAA in a Hollywood quick-draw holster with real .45 Colt ammo in the loops.

    Dressing like Free Citizen does confuse the willing subjects.

    What's a weapon?



    Also, don't chew your toaster pastry into the shape of a gun. Its scary. Someone might get a heart attack.

    all HR manuals are written by lawyers and usually include a zero tolerance weapons policy. That includes GI Joes with tiny plastic M1's and anything ever made by Mattel. I brought a couple of gun magazines to work a couple years ago and put on the magazine stand in the mens restroom along with Golf, Georgia Outdoors, and a bunch of racing mags.

    HR confiscated and ran my magazines through the shredder. I got my payback when I caught HR embezzling from the company through our payroll account. Karma. "Its ok to steal, but illegal to show pictures of guns".

    My magazines have not been touched since HR Barbie was "terminated" with prejudice. :)

    Were they thirty round magazines? That must have been hard on the shredder!

    I could totally see that happening at my office if someone were to bring in magazines like that.

    Meh, I haven't worn a costume for Halloween since before I reached puberty. And I darn sure wasn't going to wear one to my place of employment or my customer's work site (even though they did have a costume contest). It doesn't surprise me in the least in this litigous society that employers would be risk adverse to anything that could be construed as a weapon.

    Sounds like the School policy at my place of employment as well. We usually have more issues with the young ladies pushing the dress code limits vs trying to bring toy weapons.
