So at 11:30, 30 minutes before my shift is supposed to end a student emerges and goes “I don’t know how to tell you this, but that lab’s flooding…”

My response was “WHAT!?!”

I run and get Daniel and ask him about the kitty litter (which I was at that point told not to do) and Daniel figures out what was wrong (paper towels in the drain) and I begin to mop and paper towel the floor. In between “Matan, I hate you…”‘s Daniel was laughing…hard…

Ten minutes later the 71 comes…the 71 is the truck that comes when there’s heavy flooding in the basement and they think the CFA roof is going to cave in…Daniel laughs harder…

Now…one might ask, why, when it started flooding, the little cretin working in the lab didn’t come and get me so I could have handled it before it turned into a crisis, but the largest flood in CFA history has now happened on my watch.

That’s my day so far kids…hey, it can only continue to snowball from here.

Though in the good news…Daniel didn’t fire me, or kill me…
