I'm going to tell this story, and for those of you interested, put on your reading glasses, it's a doozy. work at a Menards >be a stocker, my time slot has a group of seven stockers one of these stockers is named Ken >Ken is sort of a cunt, really isolated, snarky, plays by the rules and rats people out to the managers even though the managers don't give a shit about anything >another one of these stockers is named Deb >Deb is engaged because she got knocked up >I'm friends with three of the stockers, we hang out after work, get high together, get into all sorts of hijinks >one night we get super high and watch the Adjustment Bureau discussing conspiracy theories after the movie for hours come up with a fun idea: >"What if we, just, like, kept sneaking some message to some random person until they went nuts?" we discussed it for hours, coming up with dumb shit and giggling like retards next day we're driving to work >one of my friends comes up with the idea "Hey, guys.

Like, if we're talking to each other around him, somebody just mention it and if he notices pretend like it's nothing. We begin that day >Every time we're by him and talking, somebody sneaks in some quick blurt of "so when are they killing Deb?" or something stupid at first we keep snickering when we do it and Ken doesn't catch on, but after a few days it's already just a part of work we instinctively sneak it in to as many things as possible >two weeks into this process we sneak one in as Ken walks by >but another coworker was stocking right by us as soon as we sneak in the "so when's Deb getting murdered?" our coworker laughs and asks what the fuck we said >let them in on the joke >that coworker tells other coworkers >eventually everybody in our department is in on the joke except for Ken and Deb >even the fucking managers sneak it in when talking to us >this goes on like clockwork for a month >Ken starts getting weirded out, notices when it comes up but says nothing one day I walk to go use the bathroom I'm in another department, other side of the store, Ken is nowhere in sight >hear somebody say "Yeah, and then after you empty this pallet, we've got to work on the Deb killing."

Are you friends with Ken?" "Uh, not really, why?" >Ken called her freaking out about her baby >Ken doesn't come to work for a week walk into Menards one day >there is a bulletin board in the conference room >somebody has put up a chickenscratch note saying "baby-devil, kill it" the fuck going on? when Ken comes back he's noticeably psychotic >he's lost tons of weight, stutters, darts his eyes everywhere, and keeps writing in a little notebook he keeps with him >keep seeing him staring at Deb, Deb avoids him like the plague >one day I find his notebook left at our computer desk >look around to make sure he's not anywhere to be seen >open it >he's been writing down names of people, sentences about Deb, trying to put together the story about the baby oh_shit.gif It gets worse.
