A fast food worker celebrated his last shift in unusual way- by plunging into a full kitchen sink.
Steven Pauley, 20, had tendered his resignation at Taco Bell to be a full-time gamer.
Subsequent to finishing his last shift last June 14, Steven, from West Virginia in the US, got his buddy to film him while he climbed a short ladder and jumped into a sink loaded with foamy water.
Steven later shared the clip on TikTok where garnered 17 million views.
He commented: “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.
On the last shift, we got everything done and cleaned the store as normal. We finished at 4am, and then we filled up the sink.”
“That water is normally pretty hot, so we had to throw some ice in there. I’m not trying to jump in a burning bath and put my life on the line.
“I hadn’t started the shift thinking I was going to jump in the sink that night, I just thought ‘Why not have some fun at the end?’ We cleaned up afterwards anyway.
“Luckily I had a spare change of clothes in my car.
“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.”
Steven said now he’s left Taco Bell, where he worked for 3 years, he will focus on gaming and developing his Twitch account – undeaddot.
He added: “I’ve been on Twitch for two months – it’s a hard platform to grow on – but I was doing well, enough to the point I wanted to focus on it a little more.
“With Twitch, you can make money based on performance. People can hit the subscribe button and pay monthly to support you, or give you money through a virtual tip jar.
“It’s still a hard platform to grow on, even if you’ve got a TikTok video with 17 million views like I have. Not all of those 17m people are going to want to watch me play Call of Duty.
“I did double my followers within a night though, which I’m happy about.
“My game plan had originally been to get a regular 9 to 5 job, and then have a set streaming schedule, but it never worked out like that, so I figured I would do gaming full-time.”
