Last night was... INSANE.

First some back-story on two of the biggest slackers we have at wal-mart.

There is this guy named Randy, really cool dude, barely works... He gives me my breaks..

Breaks are only 15 minutes long.. He comes up there and I leave.. As soon as I get back (if it is RIGHT AT the 15 minute mark) he will stare at me and be like "are you sick?"

I of course great this with a nod and a smile and slip off for another 15 minutes.

Floor crew is an easy job, he makes sure his work gets done (or at least the bare minimum of it) and I wander around the store and get to talk to people...

We are the two biggest slackers at that store.. I mean, heck, my job is to stand and greet people!

OK now... here comes the awesome part about last night....

I accidentally brought my guitar to work (I had it over at Chris and Robbins house... I was running late so I didn't put it up).

On lunch I went to the back and started playing for Josh while he stocked (he was going to show me what he knew as well).

All of a sudden this loud, sharp, screeching siren went off............

Test? They never called for a test.... Fire?... Hmm

ALL the customers ran out the door. Later a page went through stating there was no fire.. But what was wrong?

The sirens are LOUD and just plain ear splitting....

I seen Geniva (boss) running around trying to figure out how to turn it off.. she looked just way confused...

Next thing I hear is that a pipe busted...

I ran to the back to see how bad everything was. What I saw was that the back was the new public swimming pool...

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

Daniel, my friend, one of my best friends on overnights (be it I try to stay away from him for the most part) nailed the pipe with a walking stacker....

He has no license to drive the walking stacker... But the boss told him to....

Oy vey...

So we are all standing there watching it rain ALL OVER the computer desk and a pallet of new computers and all of the vendors chips and just... it was everywhere....

And so begins the running of the chickens with their heads cut off..... I honestly sat back laughing about it and telling everyone to calm down...

While this went on the sirens were making everyone cranky... Geniva has no clue how to turn them off...

So I clock in and tell Randy about the problem... I then push the "silence" button on the alarms...

Yes, I know how to turn off the freaking alarms.. We do the test once a month and it turns out I am the only one who ever paid attention to what the alarm test was for...

Randy walks to the back and watches as everyone is trying to use squeegies to push the water out the door...

He laughs and says "Hey, would you guys like to keep playing in the water or should I turn it off for you?"

Some of the guys (the know-it-alls) are busy yelling how the pipes valve is up in the ceiling and Randy walks off toward the breakroom...

He reaches the main pipe valve (as soon as you come into work you see the thing.. Just no one knew what it was) and turns it off... 

The two biggest slackers in the store made the problem stop.

We were giving eachother fist bumps afterwards while we made fun of what happened..

Also, the best part for me was that we had no customers last night.. And when the water thing was going on EVERYONE on the floor was in the back trying to fix it...

I was outside with my guitar sitting on the sidewalk playing.

Ricky came out for a little (he is another floor crew guy I like) and started skateboarding for me.

It was just a good night for the guys who don't worry...

Then on a side-note of the night, Geniva was VERY solemn about what had happened.. She might be getting fired along with Daniel..

(We all plan on marching in the office and telling them off if they do fire them)

She was walking, quietly, solemnly, towards the office after we fixed everything and Josh (emo boy) was walking out from there..

Josh was DRENCHED from trying to clean up the water.... This kid takes an hour to do his hair in his emo style and has mascara on.... Running mascara and he looked like a drowned dog... (plus he is like twig skinny)

As soon as Mr.s G seen that she couldn't stop laughing.

^.^

Yep, yep....

And so THAT was the best night ever at Wal-Mart.

(Oh and we had Julie (head boss) and all the bigger super mega bosses come in... They never showed while we were there but they said they were going to)
