Steve holds out his hands, attempting to calm his raving peers, “Whoa! Hey, everyone calm down! Not everyone uses a wand to channel their magic!” He waves a shotgun in the air, “I’m just sending the mail to the post.”

Steve chuckled nervously, “Fellas please, this is a complete misunderstanding! I assure you, this thing is perfectly-” A loud blast erupts from the end of his shotgun, gifting the office with a new skylight. Steve’s coworkers burst into a renewed fit of screams.
