Got a story to tell. Back when i was four or five years old around 2004 or 2005 i was at Chuck E. Cheese, for those who don't know, it's a place where you eat pizza, play games and win shidty prizes and at the end of the day these robots wearing costumes would sing songs and dance. Anyway, after playing games for a bit my mother wanted to "have a talk" with me. She felt that i was at an age where i had to know how life works, and about stranger danger/not staying close withy parents. She told me a story that goes something like this
There was a family just like ours that went to chuck e cheeses one day, and the parents had to leave to go do something (cant remember too clearly what the excuse was) and they told the kid to "stay put". The kid did for a hot minute but got bored and started playing games. He (the kid) was playing skee-ball "his favorite game" and got a high score of like 30000 points. What i didnt mention is there was only one guy working, a janitor wearing the mascot's outfit. (The janitor seriously thought he was chucky cheese) He walked up to the child and said "I hope you enjoyed the pizza! also the games i've made for you, where they fun? (he then looks at the score) WOW, i'm so proud of you, your one of the first kids to ever got a score that high. Guess what that means? I want to give you a gift and show you something cool! wanna come back stage? you deserve it! The kid didnt realy know any better and he loves getting spoiled so he agreed. chuck held hands with the kid and told him the history of the place, why he made the arcade, how he loves pizza, ect.
He takes the kid back stage, and then opens a door that goes down stairs to a basement. He kneels down, tells the kid that he loves him, and butchers him to death. He then uses the kids body parts as ingredience to make several pizzas. after hours, a crowd of people come in. Chuck announces to the crowd that hes going to give away free pizza, they sit and eventually they get served. chuck says something like its called chuck's delight or whatever. The parents arive, a bit spooked since they took too long and obviously the place is packed, after searching for a bit, they get scared and call the police. The people are eating the free pizza, and it tastes damn good, "the cheese is extra cheesey, the sause is very savory, and the sausage is just mouthwatering. Eventually they stop eating in horror as one kid finds a tooth, (or something like a nail or whatever) People run out in a frantic manner, the police arive and they do their jobs. the janitor gets arrested, and as its happening hes still acting like chuck crying about how he doesnt want to go, he'll miss the kids, he'll go out of business, didnt get to say good buy or put away the pizza yadda yadda yadda, the police try to remove his mascot head and he starts crying about them hurting his head. they eventually take it off and he does a 360 personality wise and gets like a "sleepy look" in his eyes, and a "weird grin" and generally gets all quiet. story breaks out about the kid being killed, and the full backstory behind the janitor is told. Was raised alone as a child, never watching or reading anything besides cartoons to cope, grows up and gets a job at chuck e cheeses. his parents die, and due to the job being low payed other staff leaves besides a general manager that come by every now and then to check up leaving the janny to do all the work. He snaps like a twig, and does nothing but watch cartoons and read the script for the Chuck character as a way to cope, "becoming him"
Needless to say i got spooked, and i never really went back to chuck e cheeses anyhow. I had asked years ago where my mother got that story from and she denied ever telling me it, although even another woman heard the story and got concerned about the content, my mother bitched at her and told her to mind her business and it was her child blah blah blah, lady gave me a look and then took her children to another table.
Wonder to this day where she got it from, (or if she made it up on the spot) and why it had to be that dark of a story.
Did you guys ever get that type of stranger danger talk before? another one was something about the "green man" who would kidnap you if you went too far away from home without your parents watching you.
