The Hash-Slinging Slasher: Graveyard Shift, Spongebob Squarepants (2002)

I know this is a little odd, TV episodes on a Tuesday instead of Friday as I’ve been doing for the past few years?

Help me! I’m confused!

Well this year I decided to do something special for Friday the 13th, which means I can’t put my reviews of TV shows on Friday.

So instead we will be reviewing TV episodes on Tuesdays, TV Tuesdays.

This is episode 16 from Season 2 of Spongebob Squarepants. For those who have never seen Spongebob Squarepants the show follows the adventures of the kid Spongebob as he works at a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, does Karate with Sandy Cheeks (a squirrel doing research under water), annoying Squidward Tentacles, hanging out with Patrick Star; and going on all kinds of undersea adventures.

Squidward and Spongebob are working like normal, closing the Krusty Krab when someone comes after hours trying to buy food.

You know Mr. Krabs is always trying to make a buck. This gives Mr. Krabs the idea of making the Krusty Krab open 24/7.

Mr. Krabs leaves for the night, while Squidward and Spongebob stay for their first Graveyard Shift.

Spongebob is excited, but Squidward hates his life.

But as the night grows later, Spongebob starts to get a little spooked. He has to take the trash out in the dark.

He tries to cover it up, but Squidward knows he is terrified, giving him the idea for a great prank.

He tells him the story of the “Hash Slinging Slasher”.

Years ago the Hash Slinging Slasher used to be a fry cook, at the Krusty Krab. One night, he was cutting patties and cut off his hand which he replaced with a spatula. One Tuesday night, he was hit by a bus and at his funeral they fired him. So now every Tuesday night, he comes back to the Krusty Krab to wreaks his vengeance.

Yes, so he will be visiting tonight. You will know he is coming by three signs:

  1. The lights will flicker on and off
  2. The phone will ring and no one will answer
  3. And he will arrive on the bus that killed him and cross the street without looking both ways as he is already dead.

And then he will get you.

Squidward finds it to be hilarious, but it really freaks out Spongebob. So he has to tell him the truth. And that’s the end of it…or is it?

The night grows on and the number of customers die down,, leaving just the two boys in the store. But then the lights start to flicker and Spongebob and Squidward are not doing it.

Then the phone rings, and no one answers.

And then the bus arrives, with the Hash Slinging Slasher.

He comes in the store

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

But it just turns out to be a kid applying for the night shift fry cook job.

But if he was on the phone and on the bus then who was flickering the lights?

It turns out just to be Nosferatu, from the original vampire horror film.

It is a fun episode, and one of my favorites. The pacing, the story, probably one of the best Spongebob episodes made.

Gun Control

Here is a post explaining how I feel most of the time.

Seriously, people be stupid.

Imagination is a wonderful thing.

Life is so much more interesting with it.

Now I have an overactive imagination, and I just don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to utilize it.

Keeping your imagination alive is one of the best things you could ever do.

Five to Nine

There was this hilarious musical comedy from the 1980s, that I just adore. The film is 9 to 5. It’s about three completely different women who befriend each other and have a crazy, comedic, adventure. Violet (Lily Tomlin) has been working at the company for years, and is better than the president, Mr. Hart, but keeps getting passed over for a promotion. Why? Because she’s a woman.

Duh!

Doralee (Dolly Parton) is the secretary to the pig Mr. Hart. He likes her and has been trying to seduce her. Doralee is true to her man, but that doesn’t stop him from telling everyone that the two are doing it, and giving her the title of the company slut.

And then there is Judy (Jane Fonda). Her husband just left her for his younger secretary, causing her to be thrown out into the workforce, yet she knows zip.

Poor girl

Poor girl

After a girls night of fantasizing about actually killing their boss, the next day Violet thinks she accidentally poisoned him. The rest is hilarious. You should totally check it out.

Besides being an awesome movie, there is another reason why I’m writing about this. There is a character in the film, Roz, who is super annoying. She is a gossip, she is rude to the girls, she is a tattle-tale, etc. A horrible person. And guess what, I had one.

Mal_huh Whoa Wow

Yep, at my old job I had my own Roz and she drove me crazy too.

PissedOff

Ugh she was horrible to me around, as she was just so urgph. Infuriating! Her name was Wanda. You see Wanda had a superiority complex, where she had to always be in charge and when she was, she micromanaged you. It was horrible.

Patienceiswhatyouhavewhentherearetoomanywitnessesgrumpycat

So the reason we got off on the wrong foot all started with this one night. I mentioned in an earlier post that I was an usher for a theater. It was part of my school and federally funded which meant that we had to rotate positions, and we were picked randomly to ensure no favoritism. So sometimes you were on the main floor, other times balcony, lead, underling-you pretty much did it all.

So one night I was lead and had four other people under me. One of them was Wanda. And Wanda didn’t like that. She didn’t like being “under” someone as she felt that she knew the area and deserved only the highest positions that the work offered.

Duh!

It’s like get over yourself. A job’s a job and just do it. Stop trying to put on airs and be this hoity-toity person. She was just so aggravating.

Of course

So this particular time, I was checking out one of my other people, when I saw a commotion where Wanda was supposed to be at. When I got there I discovered that she had abandoned her post. You see once the show started no one was allowed in until there was a break in the scene. With Wanda gone, people were coming in and disrupting the patrons trying to focus on the show.

I had no idea where she had gone and now had to fill in for her along with apologizing to everyone who was upset at this. I immediately called to my supervisor and the other leads on the walkie-talkie to find out where she had gone. My supervisor was not happy about this and neither was I.

After another 15-20 mins, someone locates Wanda and she comes up and is pissed. I’m like seriously girl? You screwed up deal with it.

Girl Please

She starts yelling at me for causing all this drama when she had to do something important and help out someone in another area. I was upset with her, but calmly asked her “Why didn’t you tell me where you were going? I am your lead. I need to know where people are at all times because they have a job to do. You can’t just leave.”

I mean seriously.

commonSense

She got all mad and started yelling at me again about how I made a big deal out of nothing and she had “something important to do” with helping out another person.

Tom-Hanks-Saying-Really

I was pissed and wanted to yell at her as she had seriously messed up and was YELLING AT ME!! ME??

StarTrekShutUpStopTalking

But I knew it wasn’t the time. Besides:

JailTime

So I stopped and told her to go and finish up the night. I then decided the best way to handle this, was to go to my supervisor. I told her what had happened, and since Wanda had already worked herself into a tizzy, the best way to handle it would be to tell everyone that they should let their leads know where they are at all times. My supervisor agreed with me and gave a lecture after the show. Wanda knew this lecture was aimed at her and was pissed. When I arrived in the locker room, she was in there talking to her friends. As soon as they saw me they stopped talking and started whispering.

jerk_alert32

I mean, I’m not stupid I knew they were talking smack about me. And for what? Doing MY JOB! Like you should have been doing. All I could think was, didn’t we leave all this behind? I mean seriously, we are supposed to be adults in college, not acting like silly high school girls getting worked up over nothing.

After that, the workforce was divided. Me or her. Yep, she had that many issues that she felt she had to justify her actions.

Strange Sad Have My Pity Toy Story

But that wasn’t the end of it. She then tried to make any time we worked together hell. She would watch me constantly and leave me dangling if I needed help. She would also watch to see if I made even the slightest mistake, so she could report it to the supervisor.

Now normally I would have taken this girl out.

MysteryMenDon'tMessWithMe

I would have given it to her good verbal beatdown.

verbalbeatdown

The only thing was I didn’t want to lose my job. You see I was a poor college student. I had grants, scholarships, loans, and worked two jobs to pay for school. I needed to work as much as I could.

Punch you in the throat but professional lose job

In fact, more than not I just prayed we wouldn’t work on the same night:

Spongebob squarepants squidward comeAgainWheI'mnotworking

And if we did work together, I just held my tongue.

NotenoughcreditforNotbeingaPsychopath

But my last day of work (as I was graduating) she was really grating on my nerves. And I told my friends, you know what I don’t care. If she tries something, I’ll take her down as I don’t have to worry about keeping my job. Wanda must have sensed this, as she wisely stayed far, far from me. I might not have won the battle, but I won the war.

BraveheartVictorySwordinAir

After all, I got the best thing. I was finally rid of Wanda and will never have to come into contact with her again.

throw confetti HIMYM

At least I hope I won’t have to.

The Final Chapter

So if you have been following my blog you probably wonder why my attitude from my ex went from I’m happy it’s over to he’s a cheating, lying,

wordICan't say Toy Story

Some of you are probably like that is every relationship, but no that’s not the reason. Let me back up and just give you who are new to following a brief recap.

So my ex and I broke up last year and it was not the best ending for me. You see I was away at school and we were trying to make a long-distance relationship work.

longdistancenicholassparks

I had thought things were fine, until Michael, my ex started talking to me less and less. I went down to see him and he took an extra shift. When I was coming back for Thanksgiving he wasn’t sure he would be able to fit me in.

Now for all you people (and me now) it is clear that this guy was obviously moving on from me. But of course, I didn’t see it as:

Love_Is_Blind_by_Luquicas

So he was talking to me less and less and I was just so confused by it.

VeronicaMarsBrokenUpbutNot

My grandfather died, and still barely any peep from him. I know, my grandfather dies and he can’t see me or comfort me. What a major loser, am I right?

Jerk

So I go surprise attack him and see him, trying to get an answer out of him why he was so distant. Did he even want to stay together? You know, the usual questions. I mean I was so confused and unhappy and emotional, I just wanted the truth. We ended up breaking up. Now at first I was completely heartbroken, and there are earlier posts which detail that phase of my life.

HeartHurtsDon'tKnowCanDoAgainHeartbroken

In fact I stupidly blamed myself for most of it. Maybe if I had done this differently or this we would still be together.

what-not-to-say-to-broken-hearted-girl-3what went wrong holiday

Luckily, I eventually realized it wasn’t all my fault, in fact I was a great girlfriend. I sent him care packages, I treated him wonderfully and he was the one who was acting wrong and not like a boyfriend at all. I mean I got hit on by tons of guys and could have cheated on him or passed him up for someone “better”, but I didn’t as I really cared about him. I’m not gonna lie, it took a while, but I eventually got over him.

Miss you less sweeney-todd-sweeney-todd-23636342-500-270

I realized that breaking up was better than being in a relationship that was becoming non-existent.

EndingisBetterThanPending

I mean he couldn’t even get up the balls to break up with me. Like what was he expecting me to do  over Christmas break? Never come around?

Hatetobeignored

But then I found out something. You see, Michael was cheating on me those past few months of our relationship. When I found that out I was incensed! I wanted to hurt him so bad!

broken-heart-breakYouPatrick

I was seriously angry. I would imagine myself going and punching his lights out.

dean_punching_supernatural

I really wanted to make him pay. In fact it took every ounce of my will to not go to his work and teach him a lesson.

GoldenGirlsGetIceCreamCommitFelony

Now some of you this might seem a normal response, but for those of you who are shocked or appalled at my confession, let me tell you why this rankled me so much. You see I have always vetted the guys I date very throughly, so much that many don’t make it far with me. Yes, I’m picky but I just don’t want any old boy.

HighstandardsExtraordinary

And I had allowed Michael to get farther than any other boy had. I became his girlfriend, which is something I had always stayed away from becoming as I was always afraid of picking the wrong guy. With Michael, I didn’t think we were soul mates or meant to be together forever, but he just seemed so right.

he gets me

Only for me to find out I was dead wrong. Extremely wrong. You see when he asked me to be his girlfriend I told him I had three rules he had to agree to for me to say yes. The first was to NEVER, EVER cheat on me. Cheating is just a horrible thing to do as it screws people up for a long time. Second to call or skype me once a week, and third visit me at least once a semester. He agreed, especially to the first rule as he had been cheated on before and knew what it felt like.

That horrible guy!

GoldenGirlsEat&DieTrash

How could he treat me like that if he knew how it felt! I was enraged! But slowly, I got over it.

Bandaid

It sucks that the first guy I gave my heart to turned out to be such a Wickham:

Darcy Wickham Pride&Prejudice

But I’m not going to let him have any more power over my life. I already wasted time thinking, crying, plotting revenge, etc on him.

moveon

It sucks that he turned out to be such a rotter, but that’s life right? You can’t protect yourself from everything.

falsepersonSoulmate

Bitterness, resentment, and revenge may seem like your best friends, but they really aren’t doing you any favors.

resentmentForgiveinfavor

After all, they’ve already misused you, why let them continue that. It is always better to move on.

strongwoman

And I’m not letting that guy hurt me anymore. After all I got the best deal. I love his family, and they still love me. Plus I’m amazing! Eventually, maybe not anytime soon, but one day he’ll realize what a catch I was and kick himself for letting me get away! Your loss!

yourloss

And someone else’s gain.

And you are out of my thoughts forever.

I don't need you

And that would be the end of the post, except for one thing. I did see him again. And no I didn’t hit him or injure him.

You see every year my family goes to see the free Christmas play in town. And this year guess who had the lead? Michael.

mob

Grab your torches and sharpen your pitchforks!

No I’m kidding. It actually wasn’t that bad. I saw his relatives again who I absolutely adore. I saw him and to be honest I didn’t care. I will admit that at one time the urge to kick him really hard came over me:

KickShin

But it was a really small urge.

In fact seeing him again, I actually wasn’t impressed. No heartfelt longing to get back together. No breaking down and crying. In fact, nothing at all.

OverThemNewPerspectiveNothingSpecial

Now some of you might be wondering why I haven’t said anything about the girl he cheated on me with. I don’t really feel as if I can say anything because I don’t really know her role in this. Did she know he had a girlfriend? Did she try purposely to break us up? And to be honest, if she was actively involved than she is a horrible person, as scamming on somebody else’s person is just down right low. But, the person in the relationship is more at fault as they should know better.

And you know what, whoever is at fault, they’re going to get what’s coming to them. What goes around comes around. I don’t have to settle the score as someone else will. What’s important is to concentrate on me, and the next phase of my life.

Some of you may think, that’s a lot of personal information. Aren’t I worried if the guy finds out and reads it? Well, first of all:

Idon'tcareanymoreDeanWinchesterSupernatural

And secondly, if he wanted me to say something nice, he should have been nicer.

storiestellthemhowyouwant

Now I’m planning this to be the very last post on my ex, I’m not planning on seeing him ever, and I don’t think I will write another thing on him. Now think is the operative word as every time I thought the Verne Saga was over, he would come around again.

So I am going to end this last ex post with something I want you all to remember. If you have ever been hurt by someone, let it go and never, ever let it take over your life or destroy your personality.

Stay golden!
