Chuck E. Cheese's may be the place "where a kid can be a kid," but the tales one alleged former employee told about the kiddie haven could be enough for parents to keep their children away from the famed rat's playland for a good long time.
Business Insider highlighted some of the recent responses given during an online question-and-answer session on Reddit.com. As BI noted, the site relies on anonymous sources that can't be verified. Still, read on to see if there's anything you (hopefully don't) recognize:
On kids defecating in the tubes:
On my last day of work a little kid came up to tell me "Mr. Mr. Somebody pooped in the tubes and smeared it everywhere." I said "Thanks for letting me know." and kept on sweeping. Then a suburban mom came up to tell me as well. I realized at this point that as the lowest on the totem pole I couldn't tell anyone else to clean it, and if I told a manager he'd just have me do it. So I ran to the costume room and got in the Chuck E. suit. I stayed "in character" for 3 hours.
