Have you done all you could do to help? They urgently need volunteers in Lafayette, LA.
The Cajundome is looking for volunteers to flush more than 200 toilets in the building.
That’s right. About 70 volunteers are needed to participate in the great Cajundome flush-off at 6 p.m. Dec. 27.
…about 70 volunteers are needed to spend 15 to 20 minutes flushing toilet paper down 220 or so toilets and urinals.
“We can’t afford to find out we have a problem at a sold-out concert,” Davis said.
Individuals and groups are asked to call Heidi Champagne at 265-2100 to volunteer.
Have I told you life down here was surreal?
Eh, they did the same thing here in Dallas before we opened the new, expensive, redundant area*. It seems to have become a national passtime as more cities open more arenas and stadiums.
* AKA American Airlines Center; AKA Free money to Mark Cubin and Tom Hicks (owners of the Mavericks and Stars respectively)
It’s a shitty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
(Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
Are they out of their frigging minds?!! Why would they expect unpaid volunteers to do this for them?!! :-O
Omni, can you imagine if they paid people to do it?
Father of the bride: “So you’re the lad who wants to marry my daughter?”
Groom: “Um, yes sir.”
Father of the bride: “What do you do for a living, son?”
“Free” trips for city employees to go on gambling, err, “R&R” excursions, at taxpayer expense, but, solicitations for unpaid volunteers to clean public toilets?
Unless there’s something valuable IN the toilets, I doubt N.O. will have many takers here.
Flushing just water and paper is not a realistic test. Sorry, but if you want to know how a system will work when it’s put into service you have to use realistic testing methods. They need about 200 volunteers to take a crap and then flush. It’s the equivalent of firing a proof round in a gun.
Paul, we beat you to this up here in New Hampshire months ago.
“Individuals and groups”…
“Hey, son, what do you want to do for your birthday? I’ve got an idea… I think we can get all the kids in at the big stadium flush-off”
Didn’t they do that to the old Schaefer Stadium in Foxboro after it opened?
I know the San Jose Arena did the same thing about 10 years ago, using boy scouts and girl scouts to simulate between hockey period flushing (without the beer smell, I’m sure).
