I just finished my first year and this is probably the silliest thing I ever heard of.
Probably the funniest thing that happened to me was with a room of men. One decided that he wanted to have a hot tub in his room. The suites at our school only have showers, so apparently this guy thought that he could do some magic and make one into a tub.
He went out and bought some duct tape and a big blue tarp and went to work. He taped it to the wall and anywhere he could stick the tape until he had something resembling a tub. Well, what else would you do with a tub other than fill it with water? So that is what he did. When he was done with his bath, he was lacking a drain in his “invention”, so he tried tilting the tarp to drain the water out.
Well, it doesn’t take much to realize that that much water will not all go down a shower drain at once, so of course, the water spilled throughout the entire bathroom, into the kitchen, and into the living room.
The guys cleaned up and I was none the wiser until a few weeks later when one of them mentioned the hot tub and they told me the story. It was probably the funniest thing I had ever heard and I couldn’t be mad because it was cleaned up and there was no permanent damage…plus…that’s pretty darn creative.
