Last rule for today…
  • If anyone allows anything to leave their hand and go into the air for any amount of time then they volunteer for one week (5 days) of trash pick-up. If anyone laughs at, picks on or in any way makes fun of a volunteer, then they also have volunteered for one week (5 days) of floor pick-up. If any volunteer accumulates a total of four consecutive weeks – they have volunteered for floor pick-up for life!
