PM Last Friday the Gumba's in Spellman 4 (Freshman boys wanna be men) took down their partitions between their toilets as a joke. No privacy kind of like the military or a prison. No destruction of property they collected all of the of screws and placed them neatly next to the partitions in the study bubble. It has been that way for four days waiting for maintenence to fix it. (Enough already) so I showed up with my screw drivers and found a couple of pagans to help me put everything back together. Hopefully since I made them put it back together they will not tear it down again
