Are those real?

In this line of work, you never know where you’re going to go or who you’re going to meet. Case in point: our CFO and project manager (I know, we’re a bit uppity calling someone in a 7 person LLC a CFO) is a former man of the cloth. (What can I say – we needed an evangelist…)

So anyway, I’m looking over my schedule yesterday when I see a survey for a wiring job with a familiar name. “No, it couldn’t be,” I think.

It was. A large (they call themselves a ‘megastore’) adult shop needed three phone lines extended for a second point-of-sale machine. This would be why they sent me on the walk-through and not the CFO.

So today I spent most of my day clamboring around a porn shop running phone wire. There’s just something weird about looking up from punching down a terminal and seeing a large poster of tits.

Of all the adult shops I’ve been in over the years, I have to say this one takes a novel approach. Where most are dark and just seem kinda slimy, this place is big and wide-open – it reminded me more of the layout of the 99 cent store down the street. Plenty of light to see (and be seen) by, and all of the shelves were 5′ tall or shorter. No hiding behind a rack in this place so the other customers won’t see you.

That’s something I’ve never understood – they’re in the porn store too, why are you hiding from them?

Anyway, just another day in the life of a Techie.

    Yes, why yes they are *cough*. Oh… you were talking about having to go to a porn shop to do geek work. *snicker*
