Saw a guy on the street dressed as Little Caesar

9 Feb

(Not this guy but when I found this pic I couldn’t resist.)

He was standing in the rain waving a sign in his hands. And before I could say to myself, “I’m glad I’m not that guy.” I saw another guy. Waving a sign. In the rain.  Without a costume.

Getting wet.

But before I could say “I’m glad I’m not THAT guy,” I thought about that costume getting wet all day. Water soaking into the foam head for hours. And then probably getting stored in the corner of some back room unable to fully dry out.

Whoever gets to wear that costume next?

I’m glad I’m not THAT guy!

    Little Caesar, “I came…I saw…I got drenched.”

    What we won’t do to earn a few bucks!

    It’s funny how you kept finding someone worse off than the other guy, lol. It’s true though, you can always find someone worse off.

    A guy from our shipping department eats one of those five dollar Little Caesar pepperoni pizzas for lunch every, single working day of the week. I’m glad I’m not THAT guy!

    We have the plain clothes Little Caesar sign wavers in Ontario too and every time I see them I think “glad I don’t have that job”, but you’ve made me see that it could be so much worse!

    i think when my child is old enough to learn about being appreciative, i’ll tell him that story.

    but on the flip side, in my hometown, you can get paid up to $18 an hour to do that. i guess you pick your battles.

    In Mexico we have “Dr. Simi” costumes dancing outside the farmacia all the time. For awhile it was a popular thing to tackle them… makes for some hilarious YouTube videos, but I did feel sorry for the poor guys in the suits.

    My first job was at Chuck E Cheese’s Pizza Time Theater. One of my duties was to wear the giant rat costume and wander around letting kids yank the tail and have pictures with Chuck E. That costume, which was stored in a tiny dressing room-slash-closet, REEKED. And that was without ever being rained on. I shudder to imagine Little Caesar’s stench.

    Heard you were coming to Oahu for “Live with Kelly” soon. We’ve got tickets but not sure which show time you will be there. Hope to see you there🙂

    I wonder how the guy in the suit goes to the bathroom.

    I don’t want to be the person that tests thermometers.

    I guess comments about Chuck E Cheese costumes are not allowed.

    I often buy coffee/hot chocolate (in the winter/rain) or bottled water (in the summer) for “that guy.” Because, dude, he’s probably close to homeless and being paid minimum wage to be humiliated and have people yell mean shit at him.😦 They are usually grateful, but I’m not going for gratitude so much as avoiding hypothermia/heat stroke.
