“It’s the code’s fault again.”
“Check the code. It’s faulty.”
“It’s the code’s fault again.”
“When’s our next match?”
“Grab a battery and plates!”
*runs to queue
You know, we almost played an entire match for another team because of that.
Two teams: 8995Z - Zeda, and 2360Z - Zettabyte.
8995Z should have been on the field, but weren’t. Their alliance was worried (I don’t blame them) so they went to find them. Somehow they ended up running up to us and basically yelled “YOU GUYS SHOULD BE ON THE FIELD RIGHT NOW, WHAT ARE YOU DOING REEEEEEE”.
We had already finished our qualification matches, and were playing Smash.
I don’t think we’ve ever ran to the fields that quickly. The refs didn’t waste any time getting the match started. In fact, so little time was wasted that we were a good 30 seconds into teleop when 8995Z finally showed up. (Man, we won auton for them!)
Needless to say there was a replay.
We had a team at our school play in the wrong elimination match once. It almost happened again at state.
“We should order more -insert product name here-. Oh wait, it’ll take 8 weeks to ship.”
“Oh we missed it” (our practice match)
“GRAB THE BOT”
“WHAT R DOING?!”
“PLUG IN THE BATTERY”
“YOU FORGOT TO PLUG IN THE BATTERY!” @Terrel_T
What happened to “That Moment When?”
Me: Oh, it got locked
so we need to find a new thread to spam?
Me: …No. Please don’t move into team quotes…
scratches, pinches, or otherwise hurts self on robot

Our team used to use 2-inch screws for our license plates, so we delayed a few matches by trying to screw them in during queuing. Those days were fun.
Why 2 inch screws???
I only ever actually used screws on my plates one year. I made up a form of holders this year.
Me: “Why is this screw loose”
Team: “Uhhhh… to represent our team name…?”
Me: *grabs key to tighten it
LOL! So true!
Me: “Can you test this motor, please?”
Teammate: “Hmm, sorry, I can’t. I left the brain at school.”
Me: “We need to test all these motors.”
Teammate: “Sorry. The battery’s wire snapped.”
Teammate 1: hey can you pass me those snip snips
Teammate 2: come again?
Teammate 1 as the coach is walking in: the snip snips…
Coach: . . .
Coach: face palm
Coach: “When you were three and got your My First Handyman Tool set, they were called ‘snip snips’ but NOw they are ‘DiAgOnaL CuttErS,’ or ‘DIkEs’ for short”
We have both scissors and really beefed up scissors that we use for slicing through zip-ties, and cutting metal. I call the scissors “scissors” and the other ones “snips”. My coach was quite confused when asked a teammate to get the snips, and they got the scissors, and I was like, " no, I said the snips, not the scissors!".
Oh, the dreaded theory. I am a suspect of using it more often than I should and then seeing the robot do something completely opposite to what “should’ve happened”
We’ve been told we needed to be on the field when we weren’t ready, and right before the match started we got called out for not wearing safety glasses. In an act of extreme panic, our coach yeeted the glasses across the fields to us so we could start.
Why did you tag me?
