DUTIES: Scaring people
THE DEAL: We have four different “haunts” inside our location in an old warehouse. I work at the final haunt, Amygdala. Myself and three other “look-alikes” scare the bejesus out of customers. I’m new to the haunted-house gig, and so far I’m loving it! However, there are definitely some drawbacks. I’ve almost been punched, kicked and spit on. I have been smacked in the face, screamed at and felt up (accident, of course). My favorite part of haunting: People fleeing from me in terror and saying they’ll be seeing me in their nightmares. Awesome. Least favorite part: drunk men/teens. They don’t scare, and then get annoyed when you attempt to. Hey — you’re the one who paid to be here!
