Stacie and Jennifer C. go out that evening in the van to retrieve the toothpaste they're going to take to the event. As Stacie explains in an interview, she was thinking that the 20,000 tubes of toothpaste they were being given to hand out at the promotion were the little tubes, but apparently not. When they get to the storage facility, they learn that there are 834 cases of toothpaste that they need to transport. In the elevator to the place where the toothpaste is being stored, Stacie asks how big the cases are, and the woman points out that they were given the dimensions. "Yeah, I didn't even look at the dimensions," Stacie says. And...good one. Because why would you consider the quantity of cargo when transporting that cargo is literally your one job? Indeed, when they arrive at Toothpaste Storage Warehouse, Stacie and Jennifer discover that this is not a quantity of toothpaste that anyone is going to be loading into the back of a van. What will be required is a truck, and likely some more people who can help load, because this is not a Stack-o-Paste. This is a Room-o-Paste. Jennifer immediately says she's only there to help, and that it's Stacie's problem to solve, at which point the storage lady reminds them that they have three minutes until the place closes. In an interview, Jennifer C. smirks that Stacie has become "dead weight," and that apparently, she didn't think getting the toothpaste to the event was particularly important. "It's not happening tonight," Jennifer C. smiles. And honestly, if she has time to be quite that smug, Jennifer C. apparently doesn't think it's very important either. But anyway, presumably, they got it moved in the morning, probably with the help of a rental truck or some such. It's a legitimately bad showing by Stacie. You don't hear "20,000 tubes of toothpaste" and just assume you can take that much in a van without even reviewing the dimensions. That is indeed not a great example of executive-level performance, and it's certainly not meeting the exacting, obsessive-compulsive standards of Boyfriend Bill.
