Rooster Teeth Animated Adventures – Miles’ Counselor StoryOn August 28, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Miles: I got a certificate… uh, at a summer camp (Camp Campbell?) that I worked at. It was: -or something, it was a really long, run-on… So when, I was gonna be like a camp counselor for incoming freshmen in college. And uh, I had gone to… I guess you’d call it a job interview. I was trying to… Um… become the station manager of TSTV Uh… So I had to get dressed up in a suit and everything, I borrowed my friend’s dress shoes. And uh, I lost, and then immediately had to go to this, like, first day of counselor, like, training session thing. Where we all got paired up with our co-counselors, our “coes”. It’s one of those places, that was like, at the time kinda fun.
Barbara: With a shirt and everything? Miles: But in hindsight, it was like, they were drinking the kool-aid (Oh yeah!). It was like, “Hey Co! Welcome to college! Alright, we’re gonna have a great time! Ready to study!?” And I was like, “Whoa… there’s a lot of… emotions here.” Um… but it was like first day, it was like, “Alright! We’re gonna pair you up with your co-counselor, and we’re gonna run through… some team building exercises! First, pair up!” And it was some girl and… and uh, It was some exercise where we had to link arms and run across to go do… something, I don’t know. But I look like an asshole, wearing a full suit and dress shoes. and… I… they were shoes that weren’t mine and they were slippier on the bottom than I thought. It was like, “Miles’ Team GO!” And I took one big step and immediately fell and brought us both down onto the ground. And I had my car keys in my pocket…
[Gus cringes] Gavin: Oh god.
Miles: It tore through the pants, left a *huge* bruise, I bled a little bit. She was injured, like… [Barbara cringes]
It was just a… a terrible first impression, and then… We did some other fucking training exercise, like, “Yeah teamwork!” And I fucking tripped over and knocked over five people and twisted my ankle and had to wear a boot for the first few months I was interning here. [Chuckling]
And that’s why I have a piece of paper. [Awkward silence]
