Intern Jeff Skinner here, writing after my day filling in as Canes head coach. A belated Thanksgiving to all you Americans. I got left in charge of the office this week, while Pants and Chuck said they were home visiting their families. Even Cassy ditched me for some some American friends just because they had pie. It’s my fault to be the token Canadian staff member in the office during an American national holiday! And they don’t even pay me for this.
Anyway, I was doing my job and trolling Tumblr for photos, checking all the social media feeds and I saw that Chuck has posted photos of her, Pants and Gator at a Caps game. Seriously guys? You abandoned me for Ovi? I had to turn down Thanksgiving dinner at Eric’s for this!
Running the office was fun for a bit; I went through the candy stash and ate all Pants’ Watchamacallit bars, then drank Cassy’s Crystal Light. I drew a moustache on Gator’s secret picture of Stammer (to match his real handlebars) and finally finished all of Chuck’s bagels. A guy’s gotta live, right? Then I hacked into Cassy’s TiVO and deleted the Wings v Bruins game, since she didn’t bring me any pie.
Anyway, to get my revenge for not being invited to the game or given the day off, I’m going to get Nealer to crank call Pants at 2am all week and set Chuck’s language preference to Mandarin Chinese. Good luck Tweeting then!! I’ll just claim the panda made me do it.
