Atria, a clerk at the Kangaroo Gas Station across from UF, had a
line of customers waiting to purchase items and pay for gas. Everything
was going as usual
until a man in his late 20s couldn’t hold it any longer and

Tina L. Majors, 31, Archer Road Albertson’s six-year assistant
manager. When 10 men in women’s clothes walked in, one man
had seen enough. The fraternity pledges had curlers in their hair,
facial masks, slippers and housecoats, while sorority sisters watched.
Each pledge had to buy an item and obtain three customer signatures
attesting they saw the pledge. An “elderly gentleman”
saw two of the cross-dressers enter the men’s bathroom and
insisted it should be banned.

Beatty, a video clerk at Hollywood Video, is used to getting strange
calls when working the late shift. The UF English major claims that
there is one guy who frequently calls the store to simply ask, “Are

on the job when a man in his 20s got into an altercation with one

Wohlust, a sales associate at Smoke, was minding his own business
when he saw a husband and wife who looked like part of a sadomasochistic
club on a mission of pain. Wohlust witnessed the husband tying his
wife up to one of the pillars at Smoke to deliver the punishment.
The husband whipped it out and smacked her rear end with it—the
paddle, of course. The leather-clad hubby was really generous though,
and let customers and Wohlust share in all the paddling fun.

Garrett, a 30-year-old Gainesville pharmacist, unsuccessfully played
5-minute charades against a foreign exchange student with a case
of Montezuma’s Revenge, but was unable to determine his ailment.

though Ivy enjoyed her regular customers at Sonny’s Real Pit
BBQ, she admits that at times the patrons became too friendly. The
worst was a guy who approached her for a lap dance. Aside from rejecting

senior Joe Palmer used to manage the night shift at the Blimpie
on campus. His most memorable customer was a young freshman girl

Vattamattam, a driver for Papa John’s, took a large pepperoni
west of town to an address smack in the middle of a trailer park.
As he walked to the door, he heard two ladies screaming from the
trailer. Next thing he knew, two women in their late 40s flew out
the door in nothing but underwear and a request: “Why don’t
you strip for me?” Vattamattam, a good sport, lifted the bottom
of his polo to his chest, but stopped and gave them the pizza. Don’t
think he left empty handed for his efforts—an extra $10 was
his tip for the tease.
