So I grew up in Charlottesville. I graduated high school in 1988 and by 1989 I was living at home kind of trying to find a job. So I ended up working for the Piedmont Virginia Parking Company.
I manned the parking booth at the 14th, Chancellor and Elliewood lots. Sat, took tickets.
So yeah picture it. A time capsule memory. Me in 1990, 20 years old, sitting in the booth at the 14th street garage. taking tickets, putting them in the machine, making change.
I had a small black and white tv/cassette/radio combo that I carried. I watched a lot of tv. I carried a cooler. I made some money, I was in some bands playing guitar in my 20's so it was a cool slack job while I lived in my parents' basement.
So I remember watching ALF. I watched it every week, I had the same schedule. And then it was coming to an end. I watched part one of the finale, then they pre-empted part two for something and they never showed it. I am one of the fans that got left hanging.
I was never a very good employee and I wandered off after a few months.
