The Arcade Traders "Pit Stories" Thread

Ok, this thread is for any of you former pit traders to share/reminisce some of the hilarities of the trading floor horseplay.

Tell it like it is... any and all practical jokes, gags on colleagues or clerks, harassment of the finer sex or floor visitors, fart competitions etc are welcome here.

Seen some great tales from the floor in other older threads on T2W, would love to hear the worst of it if you guys want to air the laundry

I don't qualify for this thread, but the now banished BBB had a tale of Chris Eubank visiting the floor (in years past) which is somewhere in the archives on this site.

(Charlie Chan - so you went into trading after your early film career finished, then? Most interesting.)

what about that total dodgy bloke who went up to the artillery row knocking shop who then paid the good lady lota cash to treat him like a dog.....trouble was, he was howling so much that the lads who he went there with thought something was wrong so they bashed the door down to find him wearing no more than a dog collar getting whipped. so this must have been about 2am in the morning by 06.59am the whole of the floor knew the story so when he showed up at 1 minute past seven, he was met by the whole floor howling...especially for him
