13 Feels Employees Get When It’s Closing Time, As Only Andy Bernard Can Truly Do Justice

What time is it? Closing time!

Andy Bernard

It's the most glorious time of day. It is officially closing time.

Any employee can relate to that feeling you get when you check the time and see that it is closing time. Some people have to fight the urge to run around, singing and dancing, because they're just so happy. Then, there are those who continue to work until the last possible second and finally leave.

Andy Bernard from "The Office" understood how to shut an office down the right way, especially when he made everyone sing along to "Closing Time."

Now, of course not every office can be that cool, but we've all experienced at least one of these feels when it was closing time.

1. It’s time to go home. *throws papers up in the air*


Everyone stop what you're doing. Toss your work aside. It's time to go.

2. Hello customers, we are CLOSED. Please leave.


Do you see the time? We are closed. Turn around.

3. Thank goodness I don’t have to smile like an idiot anymore.


I can finally wipe this smile off my face that has been here since this morning. Can you tell it's totally fake by now?

4. At the end of the day, the smile just turns into an awkward grimace.


I feel that this smile has become deformed. I hope I haven't scared anyone.

5. We can run around like crazy people because we are CLOSED.


Turn the music up!

6. Why am I the only one who is happy about closing time?


No one seems to be excited, like me... I wonder why.

7. After work, you get to be a totally different person.


You can be anyone you want because it is closing time.

8. Everyone, HURRY. I was done hours ago.


I know it's not a contest, but I'm just always done first. Maybe others just drag their work out.

9. I’m so tired of hearing people speak.


If another person talks to me about work, I might just snap.

10. Let’s reflect on the day. I think it went well.


I think it was a pretty productive day, don't you?

11. Did the phone just ring? Do NOT answer it.


Don't touch that phone. We are closed.

12. Is it bad that I’m always the first one out the door?


It's not that I have to be first. I'm just always ready to go.

13. Peace out. I’m out of here.


It has been real, guys. It's time say goodbye and goodnight.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
