He and I have so much in common.
HE TALKS ABOUT GANDALF
MOTHS DO HAVE THAT RESIDUE SHIT MAN
I BELIEVE HIS TRAGIC STORY OF WOE
AND OMFG HIS POSTERS
I CAN’T EVEN
I decided to do a 100 facts meme, because I think that it’s a good exercise in looking at your own personal quirks. So, fact number one: I am passive-aggressive and creative when I’m angry. Case in point: when I was a lifeguard manager, I had a coworker who would do absolutely nothing during the opening shift. This left me to pick up the slack whenever I had the shift directly after him, and it would always end up looking like I was the lazy one. He was chronically late, but since our superiors didn’t come in until 8:00, he was never caught. I could have yelled at him about it or wrote him up, but I did consider him a friend. So, I wanted to make my “get off your ass and do some work” prank benign, but time-consuming for him to clean up.
I had the keys to the building, so I snuck in at four am one day and gave him a little bit of extra work. Namely, I dumped five thousand plastic ducks into the pool, then left a note that said “next time, you will have the lanes set up by lap swim time, won’t you? Signed, the Dastardly Duck Desperado”.
And you know what? From that day on, he always did.
