(Attack of the killer geeks!) 1 stabbed, 1 arrested in Microsoft co-workers' fight over a woman
Seattle Times ^ | 1/21/2004 | Sara Jean Green

Posted on 01/21/2004 9:22:41 AM PST by ArcLight

What apparently began as a fight between Microsoft co-workers over a woman ended with one man being rushed into surgery and another arrested.

Just after 9:45 p.m. Friday night, Bellevue police received several 911 calls from people inside the Tap House Grill at the Bellevue Galleria Shopping Center, at 550 106th Ave. N.E., said police spokesman Michael Chiu. Callers reported a man had been stabbed, Chiu said.

Around the time the first calls came in, Officer Heather Black was driving on 106th Avenue Northeast and saw a man half-carrying another man on the sidewalk, Chiu said. Black pulled over and approached them.

A 25-year-old Bothell man was bleeding from a stab wound to the femoral artery in his upper left thigh, Chiu said. The man was taken to Bellevue's Overlake Hospital Medical Center, where he underwent surgery, he said.

She must REALLY not want to join their AD&D game now. I mean who wouldn't want to date a 12th Level Anti-Palidan? (sarcasm)

Police reported that after the fight was stopped, the woman was deflated and put back into her box.

Especially if the men have to go about proving who is a cut above who in such a violent fashion!
sorry

It's not that women are scarce...it's that women who find Microsoft employees even remotely attractive are scarce.

Perfectly understandable, IMHO. ; )

You gotta do something to prove your manhood when you're surrounded by the words "micro" and "soft" all day.

Umm, some of those Microsoft employees make big money. Nothing says "I love you" like a thick wallet. However, more than likely the gal in question can stroke a keyboard like no other, and gives good IM.

*sigh* - that's Slide Rule. No "r" on the end. :-)

This situation calls for some of Gary Larson's finest:

Maybe go postal around the office with the +3 Staff of Smiting after the Archmage announces during a meeting that everyone is taking a pay cut, but keep up the good henchwork.

Wonder if she wears the circular Rune of Male Warding?

Funny, I was debating whether there was an 'r' at the end of slide rule.

I guess I am not geeky enough to know.

stab wound to the femoral artery in his upper left thigh,

Note the location of the wound. He wasn't aiming for the heart.

The Tap House is one of my favorite haunts. 136 beers on tap and great food. But a barfight? In downtown Bellevue? A geek-to-geek knife-to-the-nads brawl among the soy chai set? Oh, the humanity!
