Life as warehouse packer for a stress ball company can be stressful, apparently.

According to the Daily Mirror, a UK warehouse worker allegedly punched his boss in the face after he was told he was being let go from his temporary job packing stress balls.

After assaulting his manager, Darren Baldwin, 44, then took out two knives and threatened him by saying, “I will cut you up,” prosecutors claim. Co-workers stepped in to aid the victim.

Baldwin, the ex-stress ball packer, was ultimately arrested for his behavior. In an interview, he denied the claims, but later admitted to affray and assault.
