On the Job: Lancers at Work

On the Job: Lancers at Work

Outside of Thousand Oaks High School, many Lancers also hold part time jobs. We asked students on campus to share their stories with us. Here are some of the worst (and funniest) experiences Lancers have had while on the job.

I had to counsel a guy at a wedding because he was super hammered and contemplating his life and how sad it was. :^( – Anonymous, Senior

One time when I was teaching one of my younger students how to play guitar, he pooped his pants. The family upped my pay after that. – Johnny Guitar, Senior

I work at Sports Academy and over the summer Shaquille O’Neal came in to train with his son. After his workout he tried to go into the chiro room chamber but he didn’t fit because he was too tall. -Lauren Tiffany, Senior

Over the summer I lifeguarded at the school pool. One day during swim lessons a kid pooped in the pool. We had to get everyone out, scoop out the poop with the net, and then shock it with chemicals. – Emma Faciane, Senior

I work as a cashier at Panera Bread and I sold a guy a small cup of coffee, only I guess we were out of the coffee he wanted so he threw his credit card at me from the coffee station, demanded a refund, and walked out. He came back for the card like half an hour later. – Decaf Dictator, Senior

I used to work at the 99¢ store, and every night I worked a lady would go to the front and ask for me by name and they would call me to the front. The lady would ask for two crates of grapes every other night and buy the two crates. One night I asked her what she does with all these grapes. She gave me a dirty look and said “It’s none of your business.” So she’s doing something really suspicious with eight crates of grapes a week. Let me emphasize crates, not bags. Crates of grapes, 20 bags per crate. Two crates every other day… eight crates a week… – Aaron St. Cyr, Junior

During the summer a kid who couldn’t swim jumped into the pool. He started to go under and I had to jump in and pull him out. He was dumb and tried to get in again.  – Anonymous, Senior

One of the first times I babysat the baby I watch, she was really sick and I had to change her diaper. I was dry heaving over the baby the entire time and threw up in my mouth. The baby was just staring at me. – Anonymous, Senior.
