Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse

April 27, 2014

Last week I volunteered for a HUGE event on campus- Discovery Day. This is a day where undergrad students present posters and oral presentations on their various research experiences over the course of the year. Several hundred students participate and a lot of volunteers are needed to make it all run smoothly…. so I volunteered from 8am-5pm. Long day, great student presentations (seriously, every year they just get smarter)! At the end of the day I was helping the organizers pack everything up and they were talking about how well the event had gone and they didn’t need any of their contingency plans. They had a plan for rain (wet floors and student unions and presenters in suits do not mix well), they had a plan for technology issues and so forth. They also had a plan for the Zombie Apocalypse. I kid you not. Apparently, it was a joke from the husband of one of the organizers, but they did have a written protocol on what to do in case of Zombie Apocalypse. I’m organized with my events… but not THAT organized.

Seriously, I couldn’t stop laughing. But I was laughing along with them. So, when I stumbled across this gem on Pinterest, I couldn’t help but laugh. The BEST line? “Killing Zombies is just one more ‘other duties as assigned.'” Too funny!
