Video of Fast Food Employee's Unusual Celebration of His Last Day at Work Goes Viral
In a viral video, a former Taco Bell employee who left the company to pursue his video game passion recently dived into the kitchen sink during his last shift.
One of Steven Pauley's colleagues filmed him leaping into the air, pulling his knees to his chest, and then splashing down into an industrial sink filled with soapy water and dishes.
The incident occurred on the last night of a shift at Taco Bell in West Virginia, United States, and the clip was posted to TikTok, in which it has received over twenty million views as of this writing.
As the video ends, Pauley is soaking wet, and he is clutching a spoon that he found on the washup he fell on. Meanwhile, he was surprised by the negative feedback his video has received.
Pauley explained: "A lot of people are giving me a bad rap for the video. But I like to have fun on my shifts - I'd put in my two weeks' notice though and worked the remaining two weeks."
As Pauley related, everything was done during the final shift. He shared that they were finished cleaning the store at 4 am, and then they filled up the sink with ice since the tap water runs typically hot.
Pauley now aims to devote his time to playing video games, particularly the popular game Call of Duty.
HAVING A LITTLE FUN
Pauley insisted he did not intend to jump into the burning bath and risk his life. He added that he didn't begin the night planning on jumping in the sink and that he was just trying to have some fun.
"Luckily I had a spare change of clothes in my car," Pauley continued. "I got quite a few negative comments from people saying I was going to be fired. I'm usually the positive guy so I'm not used to that."
HIS FUTURE PLANS
Pauley now aims to devote his time to playing video games, particularly the popular game Call of Duty, on his Twitch account called "undeaddot," which already has more than 1,000 subscribers.
Apparently, Pauley has been streaming for two months, and while he acknowledged that Twitch is a challenging platform to grow on, he had done well enough so that he wanted to dedicate more time to it.
In all caps, the sign reads, "We are closed because I am quitting and I hate this job." Upon arriving at the restaurant to place an order, a Twitter user noticed the sign, and his image of it went viral on social media.
