Track and Field Arcade

I just spent 15 minutes on a Facebook post. Must not waste all that effort and not post it here as well… so here it is.

My story of an Aladdin’s Castle manager helping me out.

I was using the pencil cheat for playing Track and Field. The manager was cool with it, even looking over my shoulder while I played sometimes.

After I was done, usually some neanderthal would come up and start pounding his fist on the run buttons. This pounding meant replacing the run buttons on the machine. The manager had had enough, replaced the buttons with ones that had guards (pictured). So now players couldn’t pound on the game anymore (well, without a lot of pain).

These guards also meant I couldn’t use my pencil cheat. I gave my best pouty look to the manager, then pathetically played without the cheat. The next time in, the guards had been dremeled so I could use my pencil, but still enough of a guard to keep people from pounding on the game. I gave the manager a big thank you.

No, the manager wouldn’t let me participate in the national Track and Field contest with my cheat. He didn’t go that far.

That’s the end of that tale. Below is a video of me using the pencil cheat. Although in this case, I am using a piece of dowel.
