    Does that make sense, Eco? First get the job. Then blow everyone up.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    That's an interesting approach. (I don't recommend it.)

    See Tdol's post 11. It's a sequencing thing. They have to work for you before you can fire them.

    I did watch that video. The "hero" was doing quite well until he was shot and killed. It ended badly for him.

    It's true that some people are hired with the idea that they are going to fire some people. Getting hired with the idea that you are going to fire some people you have developed a grudge against -- it's been done before, I'm sure. (Everything has.)

    Yup. Eco, it's called getting hired to clean house.
