A group of high school seniors in Arizona just lived out the dream of every worker bee who has ever wanted to grab all the paper off a desk and shove it out the window.
Only these kids threw their homework, English papers and other schoolwork away, down a school stairwell, creating a blizzard of paper that left people on Twitter very jealous.
Jordan White, a senior at Basha High in Chandler, Ariz., filmed the paper storm on Friday and posted it to Twitter.
“People came with the boxes, suitcases filled, all sorts of things filled with paper and just dumped it out,” White told ABC 15 in Phoenix.

His tweet has been retweeted more than 34,000 times.
Cue the chaos.
Here’s another look.
The paper toss is an annual tradition for seniors at the school, according to KPNX in Phoenix, which noted the stunt has never gotten quite this much attention.
The Arizona Republic reported the senior paper toss has been around since 2006.
White posted the video about an hour after the paper toss, and media from around the world began contacting him over the weekend, he told ABC 15.
But while people on Twitter cheered, more people seemed worried about the school custodians.
Turns out, after the seniors leave the scene, garbage bags get passed out to the other students who clean up the mess under the watchful eyes of administrators, teachers – and custodians, according to the Republic.
(And yes, the paper is reportedly recycled.)
OK, then. But tweeters had one more concern about all those kids who flung themselves down the “slide” created by all that paper on the stairs.
Paper cuts. Ouch!
White said his fellow seniors escaped unscathed.
