If there is a more chill man than Mike Boyer, we haven’t heard of him. After waiting 19 hours to become the first person to buy legalized marijuana in Spokane, Washington, Boyer’s local celeb status cost him his job as a security guard. He is most definitely not sweating it: “I’m still the captain! I’m still number one!” he told Vocativ. “I mean, a man can always can get a job. But a man can only be the first person to buy recreational cannabis in Spokane once.”

“Yeah, it was kind of a buzzkill,” he said. “But I wasn’t going to let it ruin an awesome day.” (An awesome day calls for an awesome T-shirt: “I’ve been rockin’ it for about 12 years now,” he explained.) He also came prepared. “I brought my surplus army sleeping bag and bedroll. I brought my Doritos and Mountain Dew. I was stylin’!” He really was.

And still is — post-firing, Boyer posted his résumé to Craigslist:

LOST MY JOB! still #1 tho!! (spokane)
