Anybody have any good stories about jobs you may have worked while you were in college? Hopefully Ann Arbor stories, but any location will do.
Mine: I worked at Flipper McGee's and the Cross Eyed Moose (pinball arcades) my junior and senior years at Michigan ('82-'83).
Flipper McGee's (later called Pinball Pete's after a change of ownership years after I left) was on South U and was very mellow. Folks came in, bought tokens and played the machines.
The Cross Eyed Moose (on East Liberty) was rough. Folks would come in, camp in the back near a machine and sell dope. I had to keep running them out of the building. One Saturday it was business as usual and I had to kick one of the drug dealers out. About an hour later two Ann Arbor police came in and asked me if I had seen so and so and I responded that I had kicked him out an hour before. I asked why, they responded that he was a suspect in a home burglary in which a hand gun was stolen. That wasn't good news, but I luckily never saw the perp again.
Yep, mine is not that great of a story, but hopefully others out there have some good ones.
Before this ages off into oblivion, I'd like to thank you all for responding. We have turd farmers, drug dealers, construction workers, pizza delivery folks, refs, coaches, waiters, bus boys, programmers, light bulb engineers (changers), and others.
I'm surprised nobody owned up to being a rent boy.
