According to a recent Canadian study, workplace bullying is on the rise, and can be more subtle and more destructive than sexual harassment because there is rarely any clear cut policy on the issue and little legal recourse victims can take.
So, for victims of bullying everywhere, AOL and the people behind the upcoming Owen Wilson comedy Drillbit Taylor are offering a chance to win a day of respite with your very own bodyguard. Drillbit Taylor is the story of three kids who hire a bodyguard to defend against their school bully. By entering this sweepstakes, you are in the running to win a bodyguard for a day. Sure, the majority of people entering this contest are probably going to be kids, but there's no specific age limit! Of course, it's possible that having a bodyguard for one day will only provoke bullies and make things worse the next day when the bodyguard is gone, but hey. These are the risks we take.
