So I never thought that my job as an RA could lead to possible harm to my well being. Well it did but in the funniest way possible.
In early October of the school year I was involved in a complex situation where I had to write up a few friends and their roommates for alcohol on campus. Another RA from building and I were going to their room to meet them and head to a dance club in town. We got to the room and things seemed weird and then we found the alcohol. Oh well we were both second year RA’s we could handle this no problem. So we did and thought that all was well until about 6 months later when I was at a local club a very angry guy calling me every name under the sun approaches one night. I look at him and ask him what his deal is. He then informs me of how I wrote him up, about 6 months ago. He then informs me that he is going to “POUND ME”. Of course all of this for me doing my job, and being a good employee. I guess this means I should go and pound that cashier who shortchanged me last week. Well it was a good thing I had some friends with me that night that told him to back off. They happened to be a hall director and assistant hall director and the lieutenant for public safety.
Funny how residence lifers tend to stick together isn’t it? So…that’s what happened. I think its hilarious, but a reminder to all of us of the need to be careful when you go into your next situation. You could be threatened at a later time.
