Ties and peeing contests
Philomena and I meet when we both were working at Blockbuster (BBV) back in the 1990’s. We had a lot of good times. There are some stories that probably shouldn’t be mentioned but it’s not like we remember everybody’s last name we met. We would meet up after we closed our stores but we’d also hang out at a local bar on our days off. We went so often that when we came in with a group of people and there were no tables available, they would bring tables and chairs out for us. So one particular night we were there and we had seen some guys from our old bowling league. As we were heading out we all starting talking in the parking lot and telling stories. One thing led to another and they guys started joking about us having to wear ties at BBV. At the time everyone one a button down collared shirt and if you were in management you wore a tie so customers would know who we were. Well one thing led to another and the guys were having a peeing contest in the parking lot and we were measure how far they could pee with the ties. I know this sounds very mature for people in their mid to late 20’s.
This was the same bar that we picked up 2 off duty cops and drove home with them following us. Not the brightest move but we sure did have fun with them once we got home. Plus, whenever I closed and was coming home at 1 am there was always a cop driving past watching me get into my house. Just a perk of having a little fun. The rest of that story is kept in the vault. Type of vault not sure but it has purple and pink sparkles with rhinestones.
