ben_keith_team-150x150[dropcap]B[/dropcap]log, I’m checking in, to pass on a story “Fruit Machine” told me, over dinner, in the week. He has worked in the amusement-arcade business all of his life, and I always have to roll my eyes, when I hear his tales.

This one really did take my breath away though…

In the 1990’s, there were few security-checks that arcade owners could do (the pulse has just risen, by about 20 beats a minute, for thousands of Employed-People, in the betting-industry, right across the country!). And in a well known chain of holiday-camps, The Staff had SUCH gall, they used to put out their own machines, alongside the owners’, whilst they were left to their own devices (tears of pride are now rolling down the Employed-People’s cheeks, Blog!!).

When the security-checks came in, and the party ended, the managers of such arcades obviously thought it was time to retire. And one went on to buy his own mega amusement arcade.

How much do you reckon the new venture cost him? Oh, just the £2million (well done for saving it though, normally they just spend it on gambling and drugs).

And how do you reckon he paid for it? IN CASH.

Never, ever trust a Staff. DON’T FALL.

Over and out, B x
