A Brand New Wardrobe!

Anonymous

During crunch time for a triple A title, we were working 16-18 hour shifts. To keep the team going, a co-worker purchased cases of energy drinks and took a dollar per can toward the purchase of the next case.

At the time, the energy drink company was running a promotion to collect can tabs in exchange for merchandise. (T-Shirts, Hoodies, Hats, Etc.) We figured it would be cool to get the co-worker who originally bought the cases one of the hoodie sweatshirts.

By the end of our 3 month crunch, everyone had a three piece suit consisting of a beanie, T-Shirt, and hooded sweatshirt branded by this energy drink company.

    Q's tiny hand is freaking me out

    He is a little Cee Lo Green-like in his bodily proportions...

    If Q was a boy in 1985, he is somewhat older than I assumed him to be.

    Not to mention being well on the way to kidney failure.

    My co-worker was up to drinking 4 Monster Dubs (DUBS!!!!) a day until he woke up in the middle of the night feeling like someone was stabbing him in the side with a knife.

    I myself am down to about 2 monsters a week from 1 every day. I don't even notice any effect from them anymore and haven't since I was about 20. Just addicted to the process of drinking em.

    One of the people I work with downs monsters and other energy drinks at least 3 a shift I really wonder what is left of his kidneys
    A few years ago one person had a heart attack because they downed far too many of them in a few hours

    I think they smell like crap and I have never had one

    With boxing gloves.

    Don't accept centrism. Don't let them bully you.
    American politics isn't 4D chess, it's just if you give a shit about other people or not.

    I figured that he was a mid-30s to early-40s type dude
    He strikes me as the kind of nerd who is old enough to remember seeing the original Star Wars in theaters (or at least Empire...)

    Ten years old in 85 makes him 37-38, which is perfectly acceptable for a dev team lead with such a tremendous kilt.

    Made an account just to say that as a former employee to the company, I know exactly what company, tester, and submitter it was for the story. Ha!

    And I personally don't like energy drinks as they really do nothing for me and taste terrible, but the guys on the team would go out and buy a whole bunch of them. One would get the BFC monster can and be jittering 4 hours later.

    Yeah, actually, that's kind of old for that level of management, which sort of suits the character. Not tremendously successful, but happy in his field.
