"I worked there for 5 years. Here's a few of the things I can think of off the top of my head:
-A couple was busted doing coke off one of the tables.
-One of the servers once dropped a pizza that had just came out of the oven. He put it on the tray to take out and dropped the tray, top down, on the floor. It was busy as all get out, so the server took the spatula, went all the way around the pizza, and flipped it over. The pizza LOOKS PERFECT. He looked at it and said, 'Forget it!' and served it to the party. About 10 minutes later, he was called to the table about the pizza he brought out. They said it was the best pizza they'd ever had.
-A group of adults had a birthday party for their dolls. They brought them in, bought cake, pizza, and tokens, and made the server take their order.
-All the sexual acts between the co-workers. One of the manager's kids was conceived there, in fact."
"Where do I start... I guess the best one was a customer who had lost touch with reality and fallen in love with the animatronic Helen (the bird) that was on our stage. He brought her an engagement ring at one point, and was banned from the establishment.
There was also the time my friend was in the mouse suit, forgot to strap the head on, and had it fall off in front of a birthday party of children. There was a lot of screaming and crying involved."
"I was the horror story in this case. I worked at Chuck E. Cheeses and one day, I was asked to go 'wake up Chuck E.' for a birthday party (this meant I had to go put on the suit and take some pictures and dance). So I go to put on the suit and I come out to the party and the kids are so excited to see me. I did my little dance and the groups of kids wanted a picture with Chuck E. I had a cold and I wasn't really feeling well, and the inside of that Chuck E. suit is hot. So, I passed out mid picture and dropped to the floor. When I came to, ALL the kids were crying hysterically and yelling, 'Chuck E.'s dead!' My coworker dragged me by my shoulders into the back room. I ruined three birthday parties that day."
"I worked at CEC for 2 years. Absolutely loved it. The common thing I got was, 'How do you deal with all those bratty kids?' The answer is simple: the kids are NOT the problem. It's the adults.
So, I started during the end of the summer. When 4th quarter came around, our busiest time of year, I volunteered to cover a friend's shift. It was my first weekend in the 4th quarter as a birthday party host. We are at full capacity with a wait. It's freaking packed. At cake time, CEC hosts will do a song and dance. During this delightful performance, I see a rather large woman punch another woman in the face. All of a sudden, the entire balcony is involved in this fight. Someone jumps on top of the balcony ledge and does a freaking wrestling move on someone else (all adults). Of course, there are kids around though, because it's freaking cake time! Some of the people on the floor next to the balcony are getting hit, but most everyone was able to walk away. Unfortunately, a little baby newborn ended up getting hit with something.
We only had one manager on duty and he called the cops quickly. It ended up taking several cops to break it up. Everyone's meals were comped. And ever since that incident eight years ago, CEC hired county sheriffs to stand around as security from Thursday to Sunday every week."
