Your letter to the bugman:  This thing has been visiting my workplace over the last few days. It’s fairly large and has basically no fear of humans. I’m guessing it could take a chunk out of me if it chose to but thankfully it hasn’t come to that. What exactly is it?

You have nothing to fear from this Tiger Bee Fly.  According to BugGuide:  “Adult food unknown. An adult has been observed on damp mud, lapping up fluids.”
