What’s his favorite memory at Techno Goober?

One blissful Tuesday afternoon in mid November Matt had walked back into the main area of the office after replacing the battery on a client's machine. Halfway to his desk, he caught Steve in the corner of his eye and proceeded to talk to him about an appointment he had later that day. While he was talking, Steve started his journey up the 3 mighty steps that lead to the front of our office. But to his dismay, he could not conquer the final step and plummeted to the ground. Even though he was falling, he had the intuition to save his hoagie from Wawa, what a true man. After the event Patty had a great idea and asked Matt if he could pull the recordings off the cameras. To everyone's joy he did and his fall was immortalized as a GIF in our team group chat.
