April Fool's

Yesterday there was a chili cookoff at work between one of the residents, an RA, and the complex director's boyfriend (Torry) who also happens to be my supervisor's supervisor (did ya catch that?). Anyways Joseph was hanging out with me at the desk during the cookoff so we got to participate in the tasting and voting. I think the following email indicates which contestant was NOT the winner...

Please accept this email as official notification that your employment status at the University of Arizona, and within Residential Education is considered TERMINATED.

Due to your inability to decipher good chili from great chili I'm left with no choice but to remove your position as Desk Manager effective immediately.

Ok that's all a joke, but honestly I lost by two votes (deservedly so because I was lacking meat). Had you voted for me it would've been a tie and had your friend voted for me also I would've won!!!

Reading this almost gave me a heart attack at first because if I really was getting fired, it would be by Torry! Whew, happy april fool's day

his chili was disgusting! it tasted like cardboard, ketchup and nastiness, how did he only lose by 2 votes?

Colton said...

That is actually a really good joke!

Although I feel that next time Torry should try not sucking, and then you might vote for him!
