If someone you know at work were to go on a murderous shooting spree, or 'go postal', do you think you'd be someone targeted, or someone this deranged person would just look at and walk by, as they continued their rampage?

I'd probably be targeted, just because I tend to be somewhat abrasive.

Well, presrvd, let's jus' say this could work FOR you! Believing your abrasive tendency might trigger some hothead to target you, be proactive and carry! When you see this goofball comin' atcha, take'm out! We all thank you in advance! :D

If the outcome could go either way, I choose to think it goes the good way!
Happy Thursday, Miss Bliss! ☺️

I could go either way. I speak my mind and don't hold back when I think something needs to be said but it has normally gone well with people who need to hear the truth. I've referred people on to counseling. If their going off I might be a target.

Goldie, I like that! It's difficult to know how any one individual will react.
But one such as you, who speaks with directness, purpose, truth, and courage, just MIGHT be the recipe for one to be bought from a dark place, into a moment of lucidity!

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be targeted.

I fully concur. Besides, these types of crimes NEVER occur in the early AM, your primary window of activity! :D

I miss read the question. I have hard time not to stop chatting. They would choose to kill me to shut me up.

Dearest Tops, what you consider your possible downfall, might prove to be our blessing. I could see you talking down the most hardened perp. And in the end, you not only save yourself, but all of us along with you. Thank you! :D

You? Heck yeah, they walk by! My chivalry is now at full alert: Jus' one crossways glance, and they'll get themselves twisted off!

I'm glad to know I'm protected and thank you for remaining chivalrous in a cruel world. :)

O' course I'm gonna go with "Why not me?", to get into my own poll!
Folks, I hope this doesn't upset or offend anyone. If so, lemme know, and I'll refrain from such macabre topics. It popped into my head, and 30 seconds later I dropped this poll!

Whats going in Gonzo? Two polls in two days? I would be the first one shot because I would be shaking so hard they would want to shut me up. Innocent bystander for sure.

Hi Cookie Girl! Dear heavens, mowed down jus' fer "shaking so hard"?! No way! Even the hardest-core would take pity, and pass by. Your nerves end up being your saving grace!

I would have a heart attack before he raised his gun. Either way I die.

Depends. One person in particular that hates me (because she is a bully and I stood up to her) and I would be the first to go. Some others think I am a "goodie two shoes.". Hopefully though, most people would walk by.

"Hates" is a strong word, and strong motivator in the most negative sense. This is troubling. If I could, without so much as a thought, I would be your GonzoShield! :)

She is the first true bully I have had to deal with...and she is an adult! She made fun of my appearance everyday (clothes, hair) and told lies about me to other people. She did this to several people. I put her in her place and showed everyone who

she really is. Now she is jealous because I am a leader in my school and others know me to be the professional that I am. (Sorry to sound vain!)

But, I couldn't allow you to be my shield. We need you in this world to brighten everyone's days!! ❤️

I'd conjecture this referenced individual was jealous of you LONG before your leadership skills were officially recognized.
It seems folks are want to highlight perceived flaws in others, lest the white-hot spotlight o' truth exposes their own...

...inadequacies.
It's unfortunate these types will choose good folks like you to attempt to take down. But given time, they inevitably become their own enemy and expose who they really are.
And thank you dearest Kay, for such a sweet compliment!❤️
