Boston College RAs Write Up Unsuspecting Neighbors in Cancun Hotel
Four friends, who happen to be Resident Advisors at Boston College, are spending their spring break at The Oasis Hotel in beautiful Cancun, Mexico. Though they welcome the hiatus from classes, they have promised not to let their vacation interfere with their duties as RAs. These heroes have taken it upon themselves to “go the extra mile” and stop underage drinking while on vacation.
Chad Anderson, Lily Freeman, Brett Reed, and Grace Lee are “really enjoying” time off from the stress of homework and New England’s depressing weather to just hang out at the beach. They’ve spent most of their evenings playing Cards Against Humanity (it’s like Apples to Apples but dirtier), watching House of Cards, and carding underage drinkers, delivering sweet justice to anyone who dares fuck with the rules of Boston College, and the safety of their livers.
Last night when their hotel neighbors were being “a big too rowdy after quiet hours,” the RAs abandoned their game of CAH (that’s what we like to call Cards Against Humanity, it’s so fun, you’ll never guess the joke I made, omg don’t tell the other RAs) to knock on the resident’s door and give them a warning. After smelling alcohol on the breath of the girls who opened the door, the RAs proceeded to search the entire suite, despite the fact that the drinking age is 18 in Mexico.
“They just kind of barged in and wrote us up,” said Caroline Ramiro, Penn State ‘17. “Like, what the hell? None of us go to Boston College. These kids really needed to calm down. They asked for all of our IDs, and when we refused, they called the hotel manager. Don’t they know how to have a little fun? It’s spring break in Cancun, not North Korea.”
However, the RAs recalled the scene a bit differently.
“I like to think we’re making this hotel a safer, friendlier place. Those raucous kids were binge-drinking alcohol, and they were obviously underage, which is unacceptable. I’m not going to stand by while someone blatantly disregards the rules of Boston College, even if it’s my spring break, and I’m in Mexico. I have a duty to do my job, goddammit!” announced Brett Reed, A&S ‘15.
The RA’s proudly confiscated 87 cans of beer, 3 handles of vodka, a fifth of tequila, five ounces of weed, and what appeared to be a full bag of baking soda. At press time, they were trying to set up a program with “free pizza and Cards Against Humanity” for their entire floor at The Oasis.
“No one came,” sighed Chad Anderson, A&S ‘16, with a frown. “And I’m kind of getting bored of Cards Against Humanity, even though it used to be so fun and edgy.”
