Physical Danger

You may get hit in the back of your head by a rubber band fired by a mischievous co-worker, but we wouldn't worry too much about any sort of physical trauma if we were you. Rubber bands aren't famous for causing concussions or extensive blood loss, and they have actually not cracked the "Top 10 Most Dangerous Weapons" list. Besides, if that goofball in the neighboring cubicle does cause you some serious injury because of his hijinks, we'll bet you know a good lawyer.
