Overheard On The BJC Concourse During THON 2023

The BJC concourse during THON can feel like a fever dream at any hour of the day.

The effects of fatigue and sleeplessness set in quickly and can cause some crazy conversations…like really crazy. As day broke on the first morning of THON 2023, we took our ears to the concourse to see what we could hear.

Without further ado, let’s get into it.

A volunteer who was extremely inconvenienced by his bracelet: “I can’t wait to get this fucking bracelet off.”

Guy who completely missed the point of THON: “Let’s go find a seat.”

Guy who doesn’t know how numbers work: “Where the fuck is portal 30.”

Concession worker who must’ve forgotten her phone: “I know it’s Saturday morning, but I’m just telling time by the sun.”

Drunk philanthropy: “She got so drunk she donated $50 FTK.”

Volunteer that only had his eyes on the clock: “I’m gonna do a lap to waste time, wanna join me?”

A concerned friend: “It’s 10 a.m. I know you are not about to order another chicken basket.”

A guy who had just gotten completely ignored and is down horrendous: “She didn’t ignore me. She’s just tired.”

Rope-holding security volunteer that took her job way too seriously: “We are law and order right now.”

Guy that has his priorities straight: “You thought I was gonna come to THON and not get a chicken basket?”
