I was at Chuck E. Cheese yesterday with my son..and one of the games we played ticket function was broke..it allowed you to pull out as many tickets as you could..I pulled and pulled and pulled till I had literally thousands of tickets..we went to turn all the tickets in about 20 minutes later and had enough to get the knex mario set..and as the employee went to get the step stool to get it down I had time to reflect on what I was about to teach my 4 year old son..as the employee reached for the set another little boy and his mom came up, without sounding arrogant..they looked a little poor..the boy was looking at the toys he could get and his mom told him they had no more money to spend to get one of the slinkys he wanted..the employee wiped the dust off the mario set and handed it to me and the little boys eyes lit up so much..the mom told him that there's no way he'd ever be able to have one of those..I looked at the kid and said today's your lucky day kiddo and handed it to him....
The look on everyone's face, the employee, the mom, the little boy..they were all shocked..but what got me was my son..he looked at the little boy and said "I hope you have fun with it, it looks really cool"..my spirit soaring with pride in my son we watched the kid and his mom leave and the kid jumping for joy..the employee wiped away a tear and said that was the nicest thing I've ever seen here..I said "yeah your milk ring toss game is broken it's giving away free tickets" and walked out
@God Clause, You da real MVP.
@God Clause, if they are that poor, even for a skinny which is like a few hundred tickets, why are they at Chuck E. Cheese?
@Blacksmith, I don't like assuming anything about anyone's appearance..in my opinion they didn't look to well off..idk if they were or not for sure and if they were I don't know why they were there..I would think that even if they were not so well off that the mom would still want to give her kid a chance to be like the other kids and play..if i were not able to go out alot because of money..every time I could go out it would be to let my son have a good time
@Blacksmith, "poor" as you would say people come into cec all the time. Depending on how much the difference in price is every kid walks away with something.
@God Clause, faith in humanity restored
Took this picture myself immediately after this happened. Making lemonade from lemons.
I'm calling shenanigans.
@FurriesRuinEvrything, I call bullshjt
@Taquito Speedo, took the picture myself. It's real, happened WHILE I WAS PLAYING.
@Ajunta Pall, what exactly am I looking at?
@Magnamon, The ball got stuck going through the top one. I hit if with multiple other balls, but that just made it more stuck.
@Magnamon, check the title
No points for you a$$hole!
I work at cec and this game does stuff like this all the time.
Just my luck.
@Blue Batman Undies, hey, Brian
