Got a Shoegazing Story to Share?

One of The Shoegazer’s early jobs was in the games department of a nearby amusement park, where he was in charge of keeping a watchful eye on the park’s arcades.  Responsibilities included helping customers with malfunctioning games, trying to card 14 year olds attempting to use the cigarette machine, sweeping the floors and looking busy when the always-grumpy supervisors came walking by.  One of the few perks of the job was the privilege of keeping any money found on the ground of the arcade, which mostly came in the form of quarters.

Have you worked a job that allowed you to find money on the ground?  The Shoegazer has many friends who work in the bars, music venues and restaurants around Boston, and some of them tell tales of finding large sums of money on the floor at the end of a busy night, while others seem to be left at the station waiting for a gravy train yet to arrive.

If you have a story of shoegazing, either at work or otherwise, The Shoegazer wants to hear from you!  Email theshoegazerblog@gmail.com to share your story.
