82.) Bowling Alley Attendant, Needham Bowlaway, Needham, MA

http://bit.ly/fk5GGo

OK, Captain, I checked into this listing. I felt qualified because of my previous experience working for this type establishment during the late 1940s in Arlington, Texas. Back then I think we were simply called pin boys; but those were simpler times.

The JOTW job in Massachusetts places a heavy emphasis on being cheerful and liking kids (an oxymoron if ever I heard one). As I recall my personal experience, it was a challenge to keep smiling when you were focused on not getting hit by flying bowling pins, particularly when some nere-do-well would role a strike. You mostly had to worry about that on league nights, which drew a more accurate bowler into the bowling alley.

All bowling establishments were called “alleys” back then, even the one in Arlington that was on the second floor — through a plate glass door and up a flight of stairs.

My most vivid memory is of the bowler who unintentionally released the ball at the top of his backswing. We saw it bounce once on its way to the stairs. Then we heard the ball hit several stairs as it gathered momentum and crashed through the door at the bottom, continuing across the sidewalk and out into the street before rolling to a stop.

It was deathly quiet on the second floor for a brief, short moment before the onslaught of offensive language that no boy (pin or otherwise) should be subjected to. Please don't ever give up your alternative job opportunities.

Thanks for your support. –Connie
