Had my day all planned out. Set 8th: take a nap from about 6pm till 11pm. Hit midnight release and play straight through until about 6am wed the 10th! So I came into work at 11, and on my desk is a notice for mandatory firearms qualification 830am on sept 9th!!!!! Wtf!!!!! Didn't anyone get the memo?!?! Sooo....now I'll hit the midnight pick up, install game and download, then sleep and no destiny until probably noon!!!!!

  • Shooting real guns is way more fun than video games anyway. :)

    • Okay, here's what you do. Go down to the costume shop and get a dog's cop uniform. Now go down to the k-9 kennels and carefully sneak a dog out. Put on the aforementioned uniform. Put your holster, hat, walkie talkie and your badge on the dog (maybe add a nametag, just so they don't get suspicious) Send a memo to your boss before you send in the dog saying you're feeling a little ruff this morning. Use the aforementioned walkie talkie to keep up the ruse. Answer questions and stuff. We don't want to raise suspicions. When your dog's up to shoot, tell them "sorry, today I'm all thumbs" and try to get them to reschedule, if this doesn't work, then you now know the reason you used a police dog. Undoubtedly he will be a master marksman, having gone through rigorous training, and be able to shoot for you, passing your test. Relax, and spend the rest of the day playing destiny while your doggie-double takes care of the loose ends. The perfect crime.

        • You mean pick up the game setup the install and "try" to sleep. If you are as hyped for this game as I am then just knowing that's there waiting for you to play it will make sleep impossible.

            • just fail your qualification then you'll have all the time you want. And they shouldn't be able to make you come in on your day off - the qualification should push until the next working day.

He hates me so much he gave me the 8th and 11th off so i couldnt play and said i have to work 7 to 4 on the 9th so i cant go to the midnight release. To show him i am going to the midnight release and play it in his office on his tv.

                • I'd say the firearms qualification would be more fun. Depending on what you are qualifying for. Handgun not as much. Full auto AR, Hell yes! Way more fun than a pixel version.
