    I'm training for a new job and go down to the floor I'm going to be working on and what do I see sitting on someone's desk?

    A collection of G1 Transformers. Optimus Prime, Wheelie, Ratbat, Lockjaw, Blaster, Metroplex, 6 of the 7 Constructicons, and a few others I didn't get a good look at.

    I did a double take and was like 'WTF?'. Apparently the team he is on is called The Transformers.

    The bad news, I'm not on that team (boo!) and I heard he doesn't even like Transformers. He got those second hand somewhere and put them up because that's their team. :/

    It sounds like he has a very large desk.

    You should offer to clear it off for him... :D

    I've stolen pens, post it notes, toilet paper, and even a network cable from past jobs. But damn do I want to grab that Optimus Prime and Ratbat. :p  Not to mention a Constructicon or two.

    Yeah screw em I say. You should swap his desktop goodies with Gobots one day when he isn't there. Seeing's how he doesn't even LIKE Transformers. Gah what a douche.

    You should offer to replace them with more recent transformers, not those ratty, used ones.

    "6 of the 7 Constructicons"? Unless you're counting Devastator as his own Constructicon, there are only 6 who combine to form Devastator.

    Really? I couldn't remember it's been so long. So they've got the whole set. Now I want to assemble him. But I saw no accessories.

    It was really the most surreal thing. I made my roommate come over and look because she knows what a huge Transformers geek I am. She just shook her head. I told her 'I thought I was hallucinating, I just needed you to verify that Optimus Prime is standing over there staring at me'

    Imagine my surprise when during training I found out that the techs that set up Verizon's equipment were all Transformer fans. Just about all of the Network machines for DSL are named after them.......

    I've got most of my G2 pieces in my office at work, and now you guys have me paranoid that one of the new dudes we're hiring'll be a TransFan that'll be poised to steal my stuff. :lol

    Go to the boss and demand you get this guy's job because you're a real TF fan and he's just a charlatan. Claim Team Transformers as your birthright and send the other guy to head up Gobot Gang. And then wedgie him as you flush his head down the toilet.

    ...

    Er... little personal overreaction there... :confused2

    Shoot him in the back then proclaim that you, Roook are their new leader.
    It's that thing you get when you're with a lady, and... wait, we're PG-13 here, aren't we? Never mind.
