So when we came back to work on Friday we were wondering why Housekeeping had been so upset about the giant snowball the kids had made in the Quad over the snow days.

Oh... OK.

Yeah, funny, but it's someone else's job to clean it up, which isn't so much so. Students really have no clue what it means to work for them, do they? :(

what clean up? just roll it to a grassy area and forget about it.

It might not have been possible to roll it if it was too heavy or had melted and then frozen into place. Regardless, it's obviously a hazard, and if it were discovered during off hours (some employees actually go home once in a while) and it weren't as simple as rolling it to the side, that would mean calling in people to do it, which means overtime, which means expense and effort over what studens consider to be a LOL.

Sorry, I've worked in higher ed for too long. Yes, it was clever, but it would have been better to leave it somewhere where it wasn't a hazard. No one working on a college campus minds the silly stuff the students do, as long as it doesn't make anyone's job harder, or infringes upon the safety of the campus.

..it's the whole melt, freeze up into ice, melt, freeze up into ice again messiness....you think an employee is gonna risk OSHA regs to move that? And no way the students will!

...stupid gits...(yeah, I would love to see the look on the face of the moron who thought it would be funny when he couldn't open the door because of it...)

I'm too busy giggling about how LONG it must have taken to make a snowball that big to worry about fire hazards!

A lot of work for a gag!

And they could have done something so much more artistic or meaningful with it. Like Sisyphus, or Indiana Jones, or the climate change globe from Amsterdam. Rather boring.

Actually it turns out the majority of Ivy League kids are as much unrepentant slackers as any college student.. getting them to spell Sisyphus is a bit too taxing. ;)
