So, I'm on the road, at a bar that has a Funhouse and a KISS game. I play a few games and go back to my laptop. A nosy guy apparently is watching me type and says:
Guy: So you are Vid1900?
Me: Eh, no.
Guy: I recognized Pinside a mile away - you are logged in on it!
Me: Yeah, Pinside is great.
Guy: I'm xxxxxxxx on there, glad to meet you!
Me: (we shake hands)
So we drink and the guy tells me he loves pinball, has 2 non working machines and is looking to buy another.
He wants me to come fix his machines, he lives one block over. I tell him my hourly price hoping to scare him away. I also tell him I'm on the road for work and have only basic parts in my van. He cons me into following him to his house.
His favorite game is Bally Supersonic and he also has an EM with a missing backglass (some kind of western theme).
