Adio, amigo

Our anonymous submitter saw this note posted on the door to the walk-in cooler at a convenience store in Boerne, Texas. “The clerk told me that the Red Bull delivery guy had been drinking Red Bull and leaving the empty cans on the floor of the walk-in,” our submitter says. “In her words, ‘he was knockin’ himself off!’”

    Somehow the threat of being “prosucuted” doesn’t seem like much of a deterrent.

    I don’t get it. They put up a note saying they were making video recordings because the delivery guy was leaving his empties? It’s not like he was stealing stuff, or eating/drinking their inventory, right? Well, that’s not passive aggressive. That’s just stupid.

    ADIO, AOIO… Excuse me?
    On another note, I assume Red Bull delivery man isn’t saving them up for when he arrives so he can drink them in the cooler. It’s far more likely he’s got a little parched on his journey and cracked open a can or two in attempt to quench his thirst and get a bit of a caffeine hit. This note suggests there is no problem with just offloading your empty cans in the cooler, so long as you don’t actually consume them once inside.
    I would conclude that Red Bull Man has nothing to worry about.

    So, is he stealing food and drink from the cooler and eating it there? Because the way it’s worded it sounds like the thing they have a problem with is that the food and drink is being consumed within the confines of the cooler, no matter how it got in there and who owns it. Would it be OK if he took food that was in the cooler, brought it out, and ate it in the kitchen? Or are they upset that he brought his own food in and is messing up their nice clean cooler with his spilled coffee and doughnut crumbs?

      As a former food service worker, it’s more likely that they have an issue with him eating and drinking inside the cooler, which is unsanitary and a health hazard, especially leaving his germ-infested cans behind. Perhaps they are also getting all nosy and interfering and will forward their incriminating tape to Red Bull for prosucutory purposes. Hit him with the ham again, Bob!

    Spelling errors aside, this note is directed at one person, the ‘Red Bull Man’.

    This note gives the false illusion that it could be directed at any number of people who might frequent the cooler at first, but soon they are pointing a finger at the intended culprit. Totally P-A, the note is intended for one person. They can’t just ask him to stop drinking Red Bulls in the cooler? And they’ve gone to all the trouble of setting up a camera (and adio)?

    But just like those ostensibly drug-free dealers, look what happens when you lock them in a cooler surrounded by Red Bull! He thought he was sneakin’ in a quick fix, but the judges are on to him.

    Grad student clerk refering to the ADLO (Assessment of Developmental Levels by Observation). Any chance the empties have nipples?

    Prosecuted in Texas could be spelled d-e-a-t-h-space-r-o-w. You wouldn’t catch me being anything but ful of care, no bul.

    ..maybe the cooler is so warm because Adio keeps opening it to maintain his red bull fix.

    We should check to see if Adio has a cape under his shirt. He could be a superhero using the cooler to change into his spandex man-thong while getting hopped up on Red Bull.

    Let the man do his thang, ladies!

    Consider this:
    Scene: walk-in cooler in Texas…
    Oh, forget it! That says it all for me.

    With the temperature gauge on the cooler reading more like that of a sauna, I’ll bet a lot more than drinking Red Bull goes on in there!

    Oh, Red Bull Man, oh, Red Bull Man,
    Please clean up your Red Bull cans.
    Do not leave them on the floor
    Of the cooler anymore,
    Or, surely as the bull is red,
    You shall be pro-Sec-u-TED.
    We’ll have you up before the judge,
    Since from the cooler you won’t budge.
    The cans are slim, their mouths are wide,
    But there is no cold drink inside.
    We’re taping all of this, you know,
    For Funniest Home Videos.
    So, as you lurk between the stacks
    Of pony kegs and cold six-packs,
    Remember that we’re on to you;
    We’re watching everything you do.
    Enjoy your energetic drink
    As deeper in our trap you sink.
    Your dirty tricks we will not stand,
    Oh, Red Bull Man, oh, Red Bull Man.

    Dear Adio,

    Please do not eat or drink in the cooler. You make too much noise chewing and sipping; it ends up in the background of the recording that’s being processed there.
    Make sure to be full of care, or you will get an ass-whooping.

    Much love,
    RedBullMan

    First try so I will care-fully post this to a not too-new thread.

    This is to the tune of Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi”

    Red Bull came to Texas
    Pulled into the parking lot
    Took a swig of his soda pop
    And cursed cos’ he was hot

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got
    Till it’s gone
    Empties in the cooler
    RB’s in the corner shop

    On the walk-in floor
    Prosciutto, liver and brawn
    He’d been there before
    Cans were littered and strewn.

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got
    Till it’s gone
    Empties in the cooler
    RB’s in the corner shop

    Been knocking himself
    On and off, the clerk did say, hey
    While stocking the cooler shelves
    In the middle of the day,
    Pray

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got
    Till it’s gone
    Empties in the cooler
    Red Bull’s in the corner shop

    Late last night
    RB heard the screen door slam
    Now he’s been duly processed
    Headcheese, leg o’ ham.

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got
    Till it’s gone
    Empties in the cooler
    RB’s in the corner shop

      Damn Counting Crows and that Vanessa Carlton girl. I’m reading this and in my head I’m saying “Oooooooo Bop bop bop” after each chorus.

    Adio– I’m tired of using technology…

    Totally thought of that song by Justin Timberlake.

    I’ve been having the tune of “nowhere man” stuck in my head, but instead of “nowhere man” I sing “red bull man”.

    It’s kind of amusing.

    This looks like a KYSOR walk-in cooler
    . If so, those walls are pretty thick and sound proof. I would hate to get locked in one. The robber must have barricaded the door though because there are all sorts safety of mechanisms built into the design of walk-in coolers
