I promise I am not dead.

Who knew that getting this many people crammed into a building was so freaking hard?

Things I learned last week and this week:
  • If you tell a rude girl you are in a sorority and she is going through rush she not only straightens up but her mom considers slipping you cash. No actual bribery ensued, but man oh man the attitude changes...
  • Keys have key codes on them. Apparently for a reason.
  • 300 wet Pride members and their parents don't want to hear that we are out of bed loft kits...
  • It only rains in August when you need it to NOT rain in August.
  • A staff of 25 undergraduates will move heaven and earth for you if you put pizza on your credit card at 11 pm.
  • Putting the wrong labels on the wrong packets with the wrong keys 400 times creates some work on the back end. Sort of a lot of work.
  • The "be professional and don't cuss in front of your staff" rule does not apply before 7 am and after midnight.
  • I can exist on a lot less sleep and a lot less food than previously discovered. Yeah people, LESS THAN RUSH.
  • Telling a mom that said bed loft kit is not considered a maintenance emergency does not make said wet Pride parent happy. Sort of at all.
  • Having your birthday in the middle of all of this is NOT FAIR. Worse than rush.

This job is hard and I hope I will come out of this cave of work soon. I promise I will return phone calls, see my long lost nephews, and generally be a better person...around about September probably...

You were very sweet to attend a wedding in another state amidst all of this. I know you wouldn't have missed it, though. It was great to see you!

It was only worse than rush because (brace yourselves) it's more important than rush.
