Even though you haven't been to a bowling alley since you were invited to a duckpin-themed bat mitzvah in middle school, you'd be down to give the sport another try. After all, bowling is fun, and will no doubt cause you to reminisce about your youth in the '80s and '90s.
A trip to the lanes is one of the easiest ways to have a good time. For once, striking out is a good thing, and bowlers get to enjoy a smattering of fried delectables while "exercising." However, the employees at most bowling alleys have a different view of their workplaces.
Like Walmart employees, bowling alley attendants have it especially hard. While everybody loves crushing endless rows of pins, few people ever consider the hard work that goes into maintaining a bowling alley. Now, Redditors who moonlight as employees in bowling establishments are finally airing their gripes. You might not believe half the secrets they share; the alleys' managers would certainly be appalled.
