INSURANCE JOB? SHOOT ME NOW!

It's a tough job but someone has to do it.

A Texas insurance company worker may be rethinking why he felt a "need" to carry a gun to work after he accidentally shot himself inside his cubicle.


The 47-year-old man, who hasn't been identified, put a .45-caliber gun in the pocket of his jacket before he draped it over his chair yesterday. When he settled into his chair, the gun discharged. The bullet went through both legs and a bookcase before lodging in the wall.

Police said it didn't appear that the man was having problems with his bosses or that he targeting anyone at work.

He didn't have a license to carry a concealed weapon and violated work rules against bringing a gun to the office without permission. No charges have been filed at this time.

The man said he brought the gun to work because he "just felt a need to carry it."

I'd say it's a safe bet his insurance won't cover this one.

Here's a funny cubicle song for those of you who work in one.
