So...I share an office with someone. She has it days, I have it evenings and weekends. We split the rent. She found a gun in the desk and freaked the fuck out. Should I cut her out of the lease, try to smooth it over, just fucking bail cause its an llc and move my clients elsewhere?
Its pretty much legal if that matters.
Well, it was first there because I got an impromptu call from a friend to hit a bar and its not a great idea to go drinking while armed. Then I left it there because I work late and some of my clients are fairly sketchy.
The same reason you decided not to have a gun. "Oh it'd be weird to go drinking while armed." But it's okay to work while armed? Clients that bring potential danger - sounds like you're some kind of drug dealer.
Some of my clients are involved in the drug trade. I don't drink while armed because thats poor judgement. Working? I guess I don't see your point. My business is completely legal, in any case.
Are non-gun folks really this panicked by the presence of a gun?
>work with people in the drug trade
>leave gun unattended in unlocked drawer
>share office with someone else
Wow, this sounds like all sorts of shady. You keep saying your job is legal, but you never MENTION what your job is.
>still nothing on what to do
>just talking about the gun
Talk to her first. Tell her you had the gun because someone was fixing it and dropped it off to and you either forgot it or went to the bar and left it. Make up some bullshit as to how the gun got there. You came back from the range, forget or or went to the bar.
If she seems uneasy then bail. How you bail is up to you. Kick her out, get a new person to split with or up and just move all together.
Ignoring the rest of the thread, do you know why the woman freaked out? Is she opposed to you owning a gun in general, doesn't she like it being around the office, etc?
I would say try to talk it through with her before doing anything else. You're both adults, be reasonable.
>I need a gun for my job that I won't tell you about
>I share my office with someone who clearly doesn't need a gun
>She freaks out about said gun in office
>I won't say a word about what I do, or what she does
>But it's all 100% legal trust me I'll give you zero details but everything I say is legit
>And I'll mention it's legal a lot so that way you know it's totally true
I want to know details to piece together this situation. And since you won't give any other than the state of the drawer and that you work with weirdos, then I guess I don't have anything further to say. Get a new office, do your drug deals there.
I'm a shrink. I don't see how that matters, but thats the bottom line of it. So is she. Some of the teens I work with don't lead the best lives. Things have happened. There, that clear enough for you?
