2:30AM at a 7-11 near Disney World, 1987

Recommended Posts

Those were the good ol' days.  You could do anything and not have to worry about offending anyone or getting arrested...or both.  I was only 13 then but the 1980's were really good to me...so was the first half of the 1990's but the 80's will always remain my favorite decade. People were not afraid to be themselves, try new things, and in public of all things.  The video you shared shows that.  What shocked me was the night manager and is female friend smoking in the store.  Things really have changed over the decades.  Not the smoking part but I do wish that some of the 80's flare and personality would have managed to hang around through the decades.  Oh well...the games and music are still here as are most of the people I grew up with so ... all is good.

Ummm.  Hello!  I spent a ton of late nights at 7-11 1986 -> 1990 goofing off, drinking Slurpees and playing Double Dragon. 

 

Kids today have just as much fun if they want.  It's just that we're too old and krusty (and in bed at 2am) to notice.

Ah...that's it.  Old and krusty I agree with but 2am is early for me LOL.  I have too many games to play to go to bed that early.  :D

I worked at C-stores off and on in the late 80s early 90s.   Part of me wants to strangle people just hanging out in the store because 2:30 is when I'd be getting some work done! This place had a couple of cashiers working so it wasn't that bad, plus I'm sure being close to Disney World they are prepared for interesting customers.
