    It was for bandwagoning me in White phalla or one of the ones that was running at the same time. You went HE'S TOTES MAFIA GUYZ and people went OKAY and then I died for no good reason.

    Throwing your hands in the air and getting ready to run down the aisle when you read this is a bad idea. At least at work. People look at you funny.

    But I still would rather go with The Anonymous since he already forgot killing me day 1 last week.

    A vote for OTM is a vote for inept corporate management. Watch as he slices, he dices, he prods you with a comically oversized spoon, and then utterly fails to get anything done.

    OTM, for a better tomorrow.

    I was aggreived at Pigeonking for 2 reasons. 1: he duped the network, 2: Bec Noir was so much cooler than Death and I was jealous.

    Masquerading as a cute Nepeta kitten the whole time, he was really the baddest dog ever;
    Bad Dog! Worst omnicidal maniac!

    p.s. Not a real grudge, he played his part very well, but rivalries are fun.

    I've seen some very effective strategies put in place on day 1. I've also seen people who try to get everything together on day one die horribly.

    You're (most likely) dead, and it's okay, because it's a phalla ^_^

    DAY 1

    The engineers marched to their cubicles as the day started. However, the rumors started flying. Soon enough, someone threw out Heffing's name (AKA Alice, the Engineer) as the one behind the downsizing. The next time Alice left her cubicle, her co-workers sprung into action, looting anything of value for her cubicle. Having nowhere to work, she left to go on to become a consultant at another company.

    Later that day, the PHB called in Oldmanken (AKA Ted, the Generic Guy) to inform him that he was chosen to take part in the management attrition program. After a protracted gag, he was finally convinced that this was a bad thing and told to pack up his belongings.

    Much to everyone's surprise, Catbert took a "paws on" approach to the downsizing. However, he couldn't find his prey that day and went back to his office to sulk. And write inhumane human resources practices.

    The management also found that a termination form for had been filled out Romanqwerty (AKA Ted, the Generic Guy). None of them remembered signing it, but, hey, one more engineer down, right?

    Heffing - Alice, the Engineer (Odd Vig) - Victim of Cubicle Justice
    Oldmanken - Ted, the Generic Guy
    - Management attrition
    Romanqwerty - Ted, the Generic Guy - Mysterious termination
