Laser Tag Employees Share The Weirdest Things They Have Ever Seen In The Arena
Oh the things that happen in the dark.
Laser tag can be a load of fun. It's one of the safer activities one can partake of in the dark. But, like any job that depends on the occupancy of the public, employment duties can be strenuous and down right grotesque. Those who work in the world of laser tag are often left will the human "clean up" craziness. Next time we're tagging... act accordingly people!
Redditor u/Dcashmoney33 wanted laser tag employees to share a few tidbits about their days by asking.... Laser Tag employees of Reddit, What was the weirdest things you've seen happen in the Arena?
Happy Poop Day!Giphy
During a birthday party, for a teenager, a 16 year old girl took a poop on the carpet. She was also the birthday girl. bbjteacher
Why would a 16 year old do such a stupid thing, like these rounds are like 5 minutes long. _Clex_
Oh the drunks.
Don't know if it's weird, but someone got drunk, climbed onto one of the set pieces, and rode it like a horse, grabbing onto the fire sprinkler head above for support, and then proceeded to rip it out of the ceiling causing the whole arena to flood into the cell phone store below... thousands of dollars of damage. We followed that up by implementing a strict zero tolerance policy on alcohol.
Also the guys we hired to paint the arena walls all space themed hid penises all over the place (it was very dark in there so easy to miss them), took a while before we found them all. Liv4damuzik
I never saw anything super strange, did see a couple surprising injuries though.
The arena is dark and lit by blacklights, so of course for liability purposes we do the whole rule-reading before each round and one of the rules is obviously 'no running.' Kids would inevitably break the rule and end up running into something, but usually not at a speed that could do any more than some bumps or bruises. One little girl managed to sprint full-tilt into a wall and break her nose, that was quite the event. Real bloody, real traumatizing for the other kids.
Our arena also had some obstacles, like boxes and barrels. Some of them were loose and could be adjusted between rounds (but were still quite heavy to avoid accidental movement), other stuff was nailed down so it couldn't go anywhere. This one time a group of boys around 11-13 ripped some barrels out of the ground so that they could build their own custom fort, but didn't notice the nails protruding from the barrels.
Another kid ran by, ran their hand along the barrel as they ran, and sliced their forearm waaaaaay open on one of the nails. Thankfully I didn't actually see the aftermath but that was also quite the gossip, especially because the victim's parents tried to blame us at first. That threatened lawsuit fell apart pretty quickly when the actual story came out. GlitterLamp
As a Shield.
Back when I was early 20s, me and a few guys went laser tag. Since there was only a couple of us, we got paired with a group of kids, and some of their parents.
During the match, one of the fathers had looped his arm through his daughters vest, and was using her as a shield, and she was just getting carried around like a little shooting shield. Still makes me laugh. andehpants
Not poop or sex.Giphy
When i was young my family went to play laser tag (this was in new orleans). Mostly kids were playing that day, but there was also an older guy (maybe 25?).
This older guy was competitive. He wanted to win bad. Here i am, probably 13 years old, running around like James Bond from N64 goldeneye, using the structures to cover myself. I round a corner looking for prey and what do i find?
The older guy, coming at me full speed backwards, bent over, with his gun between his legs. Butt first. His strategy was simple yet effective. If he shoots between his legs, no one can shoot his chest or back. He was an unbeatable butt gunner. Worst game ever. Aliencj
Worked at a small family run laser tag for about 3 years.
I saw so much weird stuff over the years, and with 3 floors in pretty much total darkness (only lighting was UV lights) I knew I was pretty much bound to find weird stuff going on.
The worst thing I happened to find was a group of friends (about 7 or 8 people) came in to play a few games. Fast forward to their second game and as the game is going on, I walk around a corner to a couple, with her hands down his pants and his hand down her pants, fully going at it.
Obviously I had to ask them to leave, although I did want to know what made them even want to do that when there were kids around too.
The most SFW weird thing I saw was probably 3 or 4 dad's had unenthusiastically joined the game and found them in a large open space on the ground floor trying to beat each other doing handstands. I later found out they were dad's of kid gymnasts. Smartie967
All the Fun.
Sex. Condoms. Tampons (used and unused). Poop. All of these things can be found in laser tag arenas.
The weirdest thing I've seen happen was when I was working in the arena and a kid stuff in the middle of the game. Some poor soul game running through and slipped in it. That was fun.
Second weirdest was finding crappy underwear in the bathroom. It looked like the scene from Dumb and Dumberer.
Third weirdest was the car fire in the parking lot where I had to pull a kid from a car seat.
Those places are black holes of normalcy. Everything is weird there. Jobeofthejungle
One day, a birthday party comes in. Everything went normal until the match ended and everyone had to come back. They all made it back and had cake, except for two little guys who thought it would be hilarious to camp in one of the corners. Everyone noticed they were gone and panicked. Two other employees went looking for them in the arena, and found them. What was strangest is they decided to make a poop and pee hole if they were gonna be camping there. That was no fun to clean. munching_cactus_74
Former arcade employee, worked there for a year. We had:
- Birthday kid vomited, didn't tell employees. Had the next group come in and the girl slipped and fell face first into it.
- Kids who screamed "FORTNITE!!!!" then proceeded to fall down when they got shot, crawling around and begging to be revived. I told one he could just get up, as the vests power back on. He just looked at me and said he was playing Fortnite.
- A kid came out, calm as crap, nose obviously broken and blood pouring everywhere. Said a kid had hit him with the gun. Filed an incident report, never heard from the kid again.
- A hispanic family came in, a lady fainted and the family started screaming at me to get them some alcohol so she would wake up.
- I did a lot of wingwoman work there, often times girls or guys would ask me to put them on the same team as someone they liked, and it was cute seeing the results. CarnivalRat
Under the Vest.Giphy
I wasn't an employee, but I was playing laser tag against a group of random kids, and while in the match I saw a kid who took off his laser vest and all his clothes down to his undies, and was running around shooting at people with his laser gun, with the vest dragging by the cord behind him on the floor. Wasn't sure how to react, but he got me with his gun as I wasn't prepared for that. SuperSpirals

People Break Down Which Popular Activities They Consider Incredibly Stupid
Everybody has to have fun.
But fun is a word that seems to have many definitions.
I use to have friends who liked to have fun by drag racing.
Now in my dotage, I say... "No thank you."
When we were kids, we would ring and run.
But now, as an adult, that would really set me aflame.
Redditor VisibleConfusion12 wanted to hear about what some people's ideas of a good time, so they asked:
"What is something people want to do that you think is actually incredibly stupid?"
I try to keep my activities clean.
But drinking a bottle of vodka a day isn't high on the list of good ideas.
But that's my fun, not yours. ;)
Save your coins...Throw Away Make It Rain GIFGiphy
"Buy that shiny newer version of a thing you already have."
"Never buy new things until yours is broken or the upgraded version is tangibly superior in ways that matter."
She lost A LOT of skin...
"Riding a motorcycle without leathers. A million things can happen so fast and there you are, sliding down the pavement leaving a meat schmear."
"My stepdad, who is a former EMT, was diving on the freeway and a couple on a motorcycle went past him, then got loose or the tire lost traction, they fell and slid in front of him, he slammed the breaks barely missing them."
"Went into EMT mode to help them. They were both wearing helmets at least. The guy was wearing a jacket and pants, Lady was in a tank top and shorts. Needless to say, she lost A LOT of skin!"
Tell the Truth
"Lying about not eating before any anesthesia procedure, especially outpatient procedure. You can aspirate and die even w a little bite of food or a sip of a drink (a sip of water and meds are usually ok). But go ahead."
"Lying to anesthesia about not using marijuana, crack, cocaine, heroin, meth, amphetamine, chronic pain meds like opiates, wine or alcohol regularly, vaping, cigarettes, benzodiazepines, or other street drugs. You might wake up during surgery because you’re not getting enough sedation. Or worse have a heart attack, respiratory issues, and die. But go ahead."
"Exploring those small, tight-a** caves. Extremely stupid."
"But just think of the rewards! Deep down at the far reaches, there are dank, nondescript rocks to see! Rocks! No other way to do this other than to visit any other type or part of any cave anywhere."
"Then there's the glory of discovery. You could be the first to know there are more rocks further down. And you could be famous like the great cave explorer... uh.. hmm..."
Pet BoundariesHigh Five See Ya GIF by Dr. K's Exotic Animal ERGiphy
"Own exotic pets like tigers, wolves, bears or chimps."
"Venomous snakes. The snake people are both fully aware of how dangerous the snakes are and also overconfident in their ability to handle them."
I love animals. All animals. But I do not wish to have several of them as pets.
Hard No!No Way Bird GIFGiphy
"Forgiving people who are totally unapologetic unchanging abusers. Nope."
"Drive after consuming alcohol. All my friends hate drunk driving and talk about it. They tell their parents that we're smarter than them cuz of Uber... and yet I seem to be the only one in my friend group who refuses to drive after having drinks at a bar/concert/friend's house."
"Someone I know has gotten in 7 accidents in 3 years, 6/7 were caused by drunk drives If you wanna be AWAY from drunk drivers just don’t drive too much at night."
"Having sex with no contraception. I've seen too many people having unplanned babies with people they barely know. Bad for the child, the dad, and the mom. Respect yourself and protect your future. Kids are expensive as hell and hard to raise even with 2 devoted parents ask any single parent."
"Also, using infertility as a method of birth control. All of the infertile people I know who decided to rely on that and not contraception are all parents of unplanned children. Many times 'life, uh, finds a way.'"
"People who think they are smart but are incredibly ignorant and hard to work with but they pursue leading roles."
"So at my job, there is a guy that joined 8 months ago and is still not integrating as they should. They have 20 years of prior experience in a similar field but are totally ignorant mostly."
"Communication with them is hard since their English is broken and half of the talk is arguing since they want to be smart in every meeting."
"Leading people are not seeing this as a problem, he is considered a Senior expert and possibly be given a leading role. I told my superior I am going to leave if that happens."
But WHY?Why Me Crying GIF by Team CocoGiphy
"Getting an eyeball tattoo. Do whatever the hell you want, just don't come to me crying, because you lost your eyesight. Nah, I don't feel sorry for you, that was your own damn fault!"
A tattoo where?
What are people thinking?
I have no words.
Anyone who enjoyed watching movies as a kid likely had their favorite films they liked to pick from.
But those who have revisited some of those childhood favorites may have discovered there was more awaiting them in the film as an adult.
Redditor phantom_avenger asked:
"What's considered a 'kids' movie' but is still very enjoyable to watch as an adult?"
The Princess Bride
"'The Princess Bride.'"
"Is this a kissing movie?"
The LEGO Movie
"'The LEGO Movie.'"
"I didn't see this for the first time until I was already in my 20s and found it hilarious."
"The part where he reads, 'spend time with those who are special in your life,' and it cuts to him watching TV with a potted plant had me in hysterics as a guy who has way more plants than friends, lol (laughing out loud)."
Kung Fu Panda
"'Kung Fu Panda' is elite for any age."
"The whole trilogy is just a masterpiece, and honestly a must-watch for all."
"'Hook' with Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman."
"Watching 'Hook' as an adult is a totally different experience because, in many ways, I’d argue, it’s FOR adults. It’s about the importance of reconnecting with your inner child and how that can allow you to really connect with your own children, and even to have a more fulfilling life."
"This line hits me like a ton of bricks now as a father of three and it gets serious real quick."
"Moira Banning: 'Your children love you, they want to play with you. How long do you think that lasts? Soon Jack may not even want you to come to his games. We have a few special years with our children when they're the ones that want us around.'"
"'After that, you're going to be running after them for a bit of attention. It's so fast, Peter. It's a few years, and it's over. And you are not being careful. And you are missing it.'"
"Wall-E isn't just a great kids' movie. It's an incredible movie all around. The engaging storytelling is entirely visual for the first half without any dialogue. Many directors or writers would struggle to recreate anything of similar quality. It's an effing masterpiece."
How to Train Your Dragon
"'How to Train Your Dragon.'"
"The first time we saw 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' in theaters and when Stoick died, I balled my eyes out, especially because they just had the previous scene of him reuniting with his wife with him saying, 'You're as beautiful as the day I lost you.'"
"The 'How to Train Your Dragon' trilogy is one of my husband's favorites, and so we watch them often, and I still tear up at both parts in part two."
"Looking back, I realized the 'Shrek' franchise was really just Dad movies disguised as kid movies."
"It's even funnier when you learn that the guys who made it were ex-Disney employees, and the entire movie was a giant middle finger to Disney. Lord Farqauaad represented Disney's CEO, Mike Eisner."
"My sister is having a 'Shrek'-themed bachelorette party in August, and I cannot explain how excited I am for it. It’s her 'bachelor-Shrek' weekend!"
"The quality of the animation is ridiculous."
"The toad hanging off the side of a wagon whilst single-handedly reloading and firing his gun at bats ridden by mole people is peak cinema."
The Addams Family
"'The Addams Family' and 'Addams Family Values' were an integral component of my childhood."
"'You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But, Debbie...'
The Muppets Treasure Island
"'The Muppets Treasure Island.' It gets better every time."
"'Sailing for adventure on the big blue wet thing!'"
Muppet Christmas Carol
"I would also add the 'Muppet Christmas Carol' is the best version of the 'Christmas Carol.'"
"It is and in no joke whatsoever, this adaptation is considered the most faithful by the Dickensian Association (or something like that, I can't remember the exact name) adaptation of Dickens ever. Even with Muppets in the mix, somehow this is the most faithful."
"I mean, this was Dicken's vision. You name a character Fezziwig and you pretend you didn't have Fozzie in your head at all? It's so faithful that one of the funniest lines in the movie is a direct pull from the story, 'and Tiny Tim, who did not die...'"
"This is a masterpiece and Michael Caine asking to treat the movie as a dead-a** drama while acting alongside Muppets is what gives it its gravitas. I once read that a historian also was surprised at how historically accurate the wardrobe was."
"Having Gonzo as Dickens is masterful. One would think adapting this classic would be easy, but no movie since has achieved the level of quality the Muppets one had. It is, indeed, the best version of 'A Christmas Carol.' Required watching every year."
Emperor's New Groove
"'Emperor's New Groove.'"
"Oh, Right. The Poison. The poison for Kuzco, the poison chosen specially to kill Kuzco, Kuzco's poison."
"My appendix burst during my very first week of college and I was in the hospital for a little bit. The first night after my surgery, I found myself wide awake in the middle of the night with only a little tv to keep me entertained (this was 2004, before streaming services or smartphones)."
"Pretty much nothing but infomercials were playing at that late hour, but then I stumbled upon that movie having just started on the Disney Channel."
"After gleefully watching it, I remember thinking, 'Man, I wish I could watch that again right now,' …and just then the TV announcer said, 'Up next, an encore presentation of 'The Emperor’s New Groove!' It was the absolute best night of a s**t week."
"Oh, you're a villain alright. Just not a super one."
"I was so surprised at how good that movie was. The marketing was all just so DreamWorks-y and the posters were every character making extreme DreamWorks faces, so I was ready for it to be like a superhero-themed 'Shark Tale' or something. It was soooooo good, though!"
The Goofy Movie
"'The Goofy Movie.' The greatest father-son story of all time."
"'I've grown up! I have my own life now!'"
"'I know that! I just wanted to be a part of it.'"
"Their father and son dynamic is one of the best I’ve seen in fiction! Primarily because when it comes to their issues they’re both at fault."
"With Max, taking his father for granted and not appreciating him enough, while Goofy is too scared to see his son grow up he can’t respect that he needs boundaries."
"Even in the sequel, Max seems to have learnt his lesson although he still gets embarrassed by him he later understands why his father needs to be at his college and actually sympathizes. However, Goofy still hasn’t learned his lesson and goes more overboard on violating Max’s boundaries. But by the end, he finally learns to accept letting Max grow up."
"'The Incredibles.' Rewatching it as an adult makes you realize how brilliant it truly is."
"At work, I regularly reference the scene where Mr. Incredible helps the customer navigate the bureaucracy. Also as a middle age dad, I empathize with the parents a lot more."
"I also like to yell out, 'Honey, where is my super (whatever I can’t find)? Where is my (whatever I can’t find)?'"
"Husband and father here."
"Mr. Incredible seemingly hear his wife and kids get killed while being powerless to help them f**ks me up every time."
Though these movies may have ideally been geared toward younger audiences, it's always fun to see what details or jokes were included to keep older audiences engaged with the story, as well.
Those who see the film for the first time as a child get the best of both worlds, as they're able to see it as it was intended, but then appreciate it at a whole new level when they're older.
We all have our different breaking points when it comes to tolerating certain behaviors.
When pushed too far, people can act impulsively and wind up causing irreparable damage and also ruining various relationships.
Some people may find it difficult to do, but turning their back on the situation is key, but if their backs are up against the wall, they may find that counting to ten may bring momentary peace.
Curious to hear about strangers online suppress their rage, Redditor Grouchy-Trip9582 asked:
"What do you do to calm your anger?"
Not being around others is helpful, though it's not always an ideal solution.
Go Into Isolation
"I have to get away from people."
"Same but almost impossible with two younger children around. I think I hold the Guinness World Record for the number of times I have tried to sneak into the bathroom to poop but always get interrupted. Going on 7 years with having every single poop interrupted 💪🏻"
Advantage Of Being Single
"This is exactly why I'm not in a relationship. Trying to find someone who doesn't argue over trivialities such as these seems to be a tall order the older we get"
Any distraction is a good distraction in a moment of rage
"Think about cooking. It sounds weird, but I debate what I'm gonna cook for dinner and run through ingredients in my head. That way, I'm distracted from rage and it gives me time to process my feelings."
"Right now, Im angry at my spouse for stupid disagreements with groceries for what to eat. I'll think about cooking some other day."
Not A Tall Order
"What works best for me is not to think about cooking but to actually bake pancakes. It reduces the world to a small and manageable place where I'm in control and everything works the way I want it to. And I end up with a stack of pancakes to boot. Doesn't work as well when not at home, though. I don't need this fix a lot, sine I am hardly ever angry (and have very little cause to get angry, fortunately)."
Feel The Music
"I begin singing in my head…something calming like Pink Floyd or any number of Black Sabbath songs."
"If I'm getting impatient or trying not to call someone an idiot I'll sing 'one o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock rock' in my head. By six o'clock rock I'm usually over it, and nobody even knows I was annoyed."
Some people prefer to assess the conflict to help them calm down.
Food For Thought
"Step back and ask myself why the thing making me angry is making me angry. Is it kneejerk defensiveness because something I take for granted has been challenged? Was it an intentionally inflammatory statement designed to make me angry for the sake of attention or clicks? Am I missing an understandable reason someone might do or say something that seems offensive on the surface? Is the person I'm talking to genuinely too ignorant or stupid to understand the implications of what they're saying or doing? Or, after all other possibilities are exhausted, is the anger legitimate?"
"And by the time I've gone through all that, even if it is legitimate, I will have cooled off enough to behave rationally despite any underlying anger."
"I do this all the time! Doesn't just work for anger, I've also used it to evaluate my life when I was going through depression. I learned SO much about myself during that time by using this method."
"My brain turns it into deep depression."
"If your emotions are imbalanced or morph it could be your brain chemicals. I’m bipolar and when I get extremely mad I usually start crying an hour later and get stupidly depressed. I dunno, that’s what happens to me too is my anger turns into the Great Depression."
Assessing The Situation
"a therapist of mine told me that most anger is a reaction to a different type of feeling. I try to analyze what other feeling I'm feeling and get to the core of it. Sometimes it sucks because anger is a kneejerk response usually and hard to really Calm, but to avoid arguments, its better to analyze. it also helps you understand others more."
Bringing In Logic
"When I realize I’m angry I pause, remove myself from the situation and logically think through why I’m angry while rationalizing that it’s not a good reason to be as angry as I’ve gotten and/or if I feel it’s justified I accept that I need to calm down to be productive or risk being irrationally destructive."
Whenever I'm about to go postal in any situation, I think of my dear friend Kimberly and reflect on some of her hilarious antics that to this day still make me laugh.
Yeah, I have her to thank for a number of times I could've caused property damage.
Thanks, Kimberly. You have no idea how much thinking about your sense of humor has gotten me out of plenty of trouble. Not that I need anger management or anything.
Readers, I hope you all have a Kimberly in your lives that you can rely on in the heat of a moment to pull you back.
When we look back on our childhood, we all reflect on things we regret doing.
From stealing money from our parents' wallets to buy candy or cheating on a test, to sneaking into an R-rated movie against our parent's advice, or being caught coming home past our curfew with our first crush.
While these things naturally got us in trouble, we often look back on these things with laughter and amusement, as they seem to be things all children are guilty of at one point or another.
Of course, some of us also may have done things that we can't simply brush off as "kids being kids."
Things we did that couldn't be fixed by an apology or a punishment, and which still cause us to lie awake in bed at night to this very day.
"What is something you deeply regret doing as a child that still affects you to this day?"

It Can Never Hurt To Ask
"Falling into the trap of 'If I don’t ask for too much maybe I can get what I need'."- OldBob10
An Honest, But Painful, Mistake
"After every Thanksgiving dinner as a child my grandpa would put a plate of food together for a man named Mr. Bailey who lived by himself and didn’t have family in town."
"He’d drive over to his house, drop the food off, talk for 5-10 minutes, and then come back."
"I didn’t know this."
"One year after our meal my grandpa handed me a plate with a slice of pumpkin pie on it and told me to get in the backseat of his truck."
"I didn’t ask questions and hopped in with the pie."
"We get to our destination and my grandpa opens my door and says, 'you have the pie?'"
“'What do you mean grandpa? I ate it'.”
"I thought the pie was for me. I ate it in the backseat on the car ride like it was a brownie."
"Mr. Bailey didn’t get any pumpkin pie that year."
"I still can’t look at pumpkin pie without feeling bad about it."- bentgrass7

It's Frighteningly Easy To Judge
"When I was 4 a neighbor girl and I became friends."
"I invited her over one day to play, we were playing with dog food, it was fake food."
"Well she started eating it."
"I screamed at her and called her nasty and was just sh*tty."
"Told her I didn’t want to play with her anymore."
"As it turned out, the poor girl was severely neglected."
"Her parents never had food so she was basically starving."
"It didn’t dawn on me until I saw that they were kicked from their home and it was condemned and torn down a year after."
"I remember I went over to play one time and the house smelled like rotting hamburger meat."
"There were cockroaches everywhere."
"It was traumatizing, I cannot imagine living there."
"I have tried to find the girl via social media with no luck."- AbrasiveRake34

Often, The Most Difficult Thing We Have To Face, Is The Truth
"Not sleeping in my dying father's bed with him."
"He asked me to because he didn’t want to be alone."
"I was 18 at the time and was not prepared for all this."
"Until the day I die I will never forgive myself."- Modig7176
Staying Silent And Doing Nothing Can Cause More Harm Than It Seems...
"I regret not having thicker skin and sticking up for myself from my bullies."
"There were two individuals who were complete psychos and went out of their way to make several people's lives hell!"
"One girl was so crazy she tried running my friend off the road driving home from school; she is now in prison for embezzling from her employer."- NectarineNo974
Well Meaning, But Ill Timed.
"When I was 4 yo, the husband of my aunt died."
"Very soon after the his death, the whole family was gathered around in the living room, me sitting across her."
"I wanted to make her feel better and said:"
"'Don't worry, you will find a new Matty you will love'."
"The hurt and surprised face of her hunts me even today."
"I understood I did something wrong but not really what at that moment."
"We are on good terms and she is living a good live now."
"She very likely forgot what I told her that day."
"I'm probably the only one remembering that conversation."- RoachT3
Blaming A 7-Year-Old For Negligence Just About Says It All...
"One time when I was 6-7 I rode on a 4-wheeler with my older sister."
"We hit a dip in my grandparent's pasture, my sister fell off and she went under the rear tire."
"She needed immediate surgery."
"My grandmother still blames me for it and it has affected me deeply."
"For years I listened to how my sister almost died due to my negligence."- xX8PuzzyXx
Genetics Are Nothing To Be Ashamed Of
"Stop exercising / any kind of working out because I was told my movement is awkward."
"Tried to shrink myself because I was a tall girl that stands out of other kids, which ruined my posture."
"Now I have a very bad scoliosis that causes mild but chronic back pain."
"It's very visible as my waist is not symmetrical."
"Might have to go under a big surgery, putting braces to my spine, in the next 3-4 years."- fatbabygoat
Not everything, if anything, can be brushed off by saying "kids will be kids".
This is why it's important for parents to teach their children what is right and wrong, and be kind and compassionate.
Even it won't stop them from making bad decisions it will certainly make them think twice and avoid doing something they will regret for the rest of their lives.
