Another Camp Story

So, I cannot remember when exactly this incident took place, it was early in the summer, and now, well, it's not. So, during this particular week i was program staff, meaning not counselling, just teaching a few skills and that's it. So, wednesday night was the program staff's day off. Now this night was going to be even better than the usual because my friend brought his laptop into our cabin and we had planned on watching some Corner Gas. This would work because all campers were on their sleep out night. So after about two episodes three of four of the cabin staff came back.

Us: Hey, bathroom break there ladies???
Them(scowling): no it's too cold.
US: ahhh muffin. So, bring the whole cabin back too?
Them: No, they are still out there.
Us: So lemme get this straight, you three, being staff and all, deemed it to cold to sleep outside and left one staff and fourteen kids out there.
Them: Yeah.
Us: Awesome.........
Them: So, are you guys gonna shut that movie off now so we can get some sleep.
Us: ummm yeah, we're shutting it down right now. (shutting off movie)
Them: No seriously, shut it off, we are really tired.
Us: Ummmm ok.... we are shutting it down.
Them: seriously, we are really tired.
Us.......Brian: Whatever........shrugs

1 hour passes, this "tired" staff spend this time talking loudly over a game of cards with all the lights on.

At this point i was discussing the events that had just transpired with my friend, i had described the events like this

You know, what happened here tonight is like this: pretend you're seven years old again, it's christmas eve you've managed to finally overcome the anticipation of the evening. It's three a.m. you feel a hand on your shoulder, it's your mom. She wakes you up, leans over and whispers these four words : THERE IS NO SANTA CLAUSE BILLY...........
