We’ve all been there. It’s like 40°C out there, the world feels like it’s on fire and you’re trying not to melt. You see a 7-Eleven, a haven of air-con and most importantly, home to the ultimate thirst-quencher: The Slurpee. Ice-cold and refreshing, you can almost feel the fruity neon frost explode in your mouth.

The netizen explained in his tweet,

“Apparently, many people complain that Slurpee machines in 7-Elevens are always broken. As a former ‘alumni’ of 7-Eleven in 1998 and 2000, I admit I like to switch off the Slurpee machines and hang an Out Of Order sign because I really hate having to clean the sticky counters and floors after that.”

Wait. What?!

Hilariously, the reactions were those of solidarity, it seems the tweet has gone particularly popular with other members of the 7-Eleven “alumni”.

“My friends worked in a 7-Eleven outlet a while back and the Slurpee machine will be confirmed ‘broken’ until the end of their shifts,” one commenter responded.

Another ex-worker chimed in.

“Yes. I used to work at 7-Eleven. I always deliberately closed the machine because when it is on it’s always overflowing. Half the customers don’t know how to operate the machine properly. If you don’t know how to use the machine, ask for help. Is that too difficult?”

One former worker claimed the companies responsible don’t replace the coolant gas, which means the machine cannot operate. “Don’t blame us!” he finishes.

One commenter noted the difficulty in replacing the flavours.

“Speaking as a former 7-Eleven employee, we’re just too lazy to top up the flavours into the machine because the weight of the containers requires two men to lift. Imagine what it would be like for a lone female worker on shift! One female employee was even given a warning from management because she wasn’t willing to top up.”

In the end, the OP left everybody with this sweet memory, saying,

“Wow, this tweet really blew up. Here, I’ll share a picture of my night shift partner and me when we were behind the counter in 7-Eleven.”

So now you know even though times may change, some things stay the same: like how everybody hates cleaning up sticky messes.
