View Full Version : Awkward Moment At The Adult Novelty Store

This actually happened many years ago, but my friends and I still get a chuckle out of it.

I used to be a light-duty mechanic and gas pump jockey at a Union 76 station on the corner of 3rd and Robertson, right around the corner from the Beverly Center mall, in a ritzy section of West L.A. One day after work, I head up to Santa Monica Bl. and a place called Drake's. Drake's is a small, independent chain of stores that rents and sells adult-themed movies, books, gifts, and novelties. They cater to every genre, orientation, and fetish that you can think of. Unfortunately, I went to the wrong location ( blush ) .

I mistakenly went to the smaller location closer to work. As I'm walking through the rows perusing their inventory, I noticed that there didn't seem to be anything there but guy-on-guy action. Now, I'm as liberal and open-minded as they come, and a staunch advocate of the philosophy "live and let live"- but there's still some things I'm not interested in seeing. At the time I was still young and kinda dumb, and raised up in a macho ghetto environment, so it really freaked me out at the time.

I asked the handsome, fit, clean-cut blonde dude behind the counter "hey man, where's all your straight stuff at?". He said "oh- that's at our main store up the street". He then smiled and said "you won't find what you're looking for here". Before I could catch myself, I said out loud "OH, F*CK". The dude just laughed and said "don't worry- people make that mistake ALL the time". He then nicely gave me the address for the other store.

We said our farewells, and I got the hell outta there before anyone that I knew saw me- LOL.

Oops.

Now, thanks to the internet, only the NSA and your ISP know when you "accidentally" wander into the wrong porn site. :D

*snerk* Reminds me of the time we had an early storm and our power was out for 4-1/2 days. I heard on the radio that a good place to find batteries was adult stores. There's one not far from where I live, so I walked over and, trying not to feel embarrassed, stepped inside to ask if they had any batteries left. Seemed like every wall in the place was plastered with posters. Never saw so many boobs and butts in one place before!! :eek: :o

And they had just sold their last batteries, damn it...:(

ON: We saw it anyway. </NSA>

MC: That does actually stand to reason. They would sell a number of...products...that use batteries ;) I can see someone making a purchase there, not getting batteries, then going down to the drugstore to buy some...

clerk> Sure, no prob -- what do you need 'em for?

custy> Uhmmmmm...:o:o:o:o

Yep, makes sense they would sell them, unfortunately a lot of other people either had the same idea or heard the same radio show, and cleaned out all the batteries before I got there.

The not-so-local adult shop that I visit (it has a better range than the two closest stores to me) actually provides batteries free to customers who purchase their products. They also test the toy right in front of the customer to verify it works (the ones with batteries and they just unscrew the bottom, put the battery in, close the bottom and then turn it on and off to show that yes, it buzzes) and even provide a little manual on how to care for your toy.

Aaaand I know that my comment is going to be ripped to pieces in about five minutes by dalesys....

Had similar happen to me once, Grease. Roomie and I are on the last legs of an epic road trip and down to our last few bucks... with a looooonnggggggg wait at the train station in Chicago. We wander around a bit and decide to hit the first bar we see. Go inside, empty but for us. Bartender is awesome, gets our details, buys us some shots, etc. 'bout a half hour in, rooomie comes back from the bathroom. "Hey sms, notice anything odd about the decor here?" I look around and it sinks in. All the beer posters, pictures, etc. are men. Topless men, Speedo clad men. Oily men. I'd never seen so many six-packs outside of a beer cooler. As customers eventually started wandering in, surmise confirmed; gay as it gets. Great crowd, and nicer people can't be found. Was good to get a little shaken out of the same-old-same-old scene.

Sounds like a great job if they're allowed to "test" the toys right in front of the customers.
