    I just got a new boss three weeks ago. He just up and took from me a multimillion-dollar account that I took a year to cultivate. He took it from me exactly when it became clear that I was going to close the sale. I've been fighting it, and I know I'm going to lose. But this individual fits your description well.

    At least now you know what you're up against, with him, and can make sure he doesn't get a chance to do it again.

    Inside every human I believe is the capacity for him/her
    to be a serial killer.


    That's a great job description isn't?

    What do you do?

    I'm a serial killer.

    Oh, do you enjoy your work?

    Definitely.

    His boss and I are going to have a talk tomorrow. Let's be clear: I'm going to lose. It might even cost me my job. But I'm going down swinging.

    How about suggesting a few friendly games of 'winner take all' chess?

    Call the paramedics, Sasquatch is down and so are five police officers.

    Saquatch is armed and dangerous. 16 hostages still held.

    Sasquatch believed to be armed with 2 AR 15's, 3 Glock 17's
    a Colt 1911 .45 calibre and a bagful of grenades.


    His demands are that he wants his boss fired and Sasquatch gets to take over
    all of his clients. He wants a new Cadillac, a house in Miami, next weeks
    lottery numbers and the phone numbers of all the women that went out
    with Tiger Woods.
