Office Drama

I can't decide if its hilarious or just sad how people in office jobs dramatize their work. They'll say things like "I dodged a bullet today", "He got his head handed to him", or "I'm in full fire-fighting mode" when in fact the greatest physical danger they faced was a paper cut or stapler misfire.

Funnily enough, you never hear anybody who actually dodges bullets, recovers decapitated bodies, or fights fires talk that way.

Although they do occasionally say "The victim was shot before he was beheaded? Then they tried to burn the corpse? Crap, the paperwork on this one is going to kill me."
