Conclusion

Unless you are in the military, police force or FBI you probably never expected that being shot at was in your job description. With 1200 murders and 2,000,000 assaults at work each year in the United States you will probably need to deal with the issue of workplace violence sooner or later. The most important thing to remember is that there are vulnerable people in any large organization who can be pushed over the edge by being demeaned. Assaulting someone’s self-esteem is never necessary and always destructive. Even if you need to fire someone, there are ways to do it that can spare the individual’s honor and minimize the chance of violence. It was not that long ago in our history that duels were a regular response to assaults on someone’s honor. Many people continue to respond to assaults on their honor with deadly force.

If you are overwhelmed with frustration because someone has put in a terrible performance causing you massive amounts of extra work, or because they have been arrogant and obnoxious, or because you are having other frustrations in your life get some support and a way to deal with your anger before confronting the person. You’ll sleep better at night.
