Call of Duty

Some of the guys in the office have started playing “Call of Duty 4” against each other in the evenings over the internet. These are the ones who don’t play World Of Warcraft. They come in some mornings complaining about being shot by who ever. A couple of those who play are involved with the TA, and it can be worrying when Jason walks in and says things like “There’s something strangely satisfying about shooting your workmates.”

Jason is giving Nige a bit of abuse.
Jason: “He starts an argument then puts his headphones in…oh he can hear me, he’s got a daft smirk across his face.” (then he goes and pretends that he’s going to throw something at him, and Nige puts his arms up to protect himself)
Mark: “Is someone having a go at one of my team members?”
Jason: “He’s your team member now is he?”
Mark: “Oh Nige, I thought you were going on about Steve.”
Nige: “I’ve been on this section longer than you, I should be team leader.”
Mark: Pause “…Technically you’re correct…” (giggles from everyone) “but at the end of the day that’s not how things are done.”
Nige: “I helped you out with the technical questions…you only got Ricky doing the interviews”
(more laughter from the bystanders).

I'm not sure if that is scary or just very sad.
