So for a while my college bookstore offered a promotion where you get a free water bottle if you spend a certain amount of money. It was moderately successful when my co-workers actually remembered to tell customers about it. The water bottles were terrible quality, but the tops and bottoms were completely flat, so they were easily stack-able. I should have expected what happened next.
So I came in for the last 2 hours of a shift because another girl had to head home early, and I was left with Kevin and Jeff. Kevin and Jeff single-handedly cause 90% off my problems which is why I named them after minions.
So I go and clock in but before I even head to the back I hear a CRASH and then rush to the back of the store hoping no one is hurt. No one is hurt, but what do I see? HUNDREDS of water bottles everywhere!
Me: "What happened?!"
Jeff: "Well we made a water bottle tower and then threw a tennis ball at it."
Kevin: "It was awesome!"
Peeps, there were literally at LEAST 300 water bottles all over our stock room. I could kick their asses for spending time building the wall and then destroying it rather than... you know, actual work... but I also know when to pick my battles
Me: [sigh] "So you at least took a picture of it right? Send it to me so I can post it on our social media for advertising."
Jeff: "Totally! I'll send it too you."
Me: "Great! Now for the love of god please clean this up and don't do it again, it gave me a freaking heart attack."
Kevin: "Fo'sho!" [Kevin and Jeff high five] "It was totally wicked though!"
