So Club Level server Heather Allison is taking orders for sushi or filet Mignon or whatever the heck they sell in the stands at Chargers games, when she trips and showers unsuspecting fans one level below with about $1,000 in cash. Makin’ it rain at Qualcomm Stadium! What do you suppose happens next?
“All my customers began screaming over the railing to the people below: ‘That’s the servers’ money,’ ” recalls Allison, who has sold refreshments in Sections 36 and 37 for five years. Fans helped collect the stray bills and, amazingly, so did the crowd below. Within 10 minutes, a security officer brought a stack of cash back up to her. “It was all there,” says the mother of four and full-time student who, after paying the concession, still pocketed $170 in tips. “Chargers fans are amazing,” she says. “We’re like a family.”
Not my family.
This isn’t to say that she wouldn’t have got the money back at other stadiums as well. At a Jets game, in addition to the cash there would have been three loaded pistols and a set of brass knuckles.
