Bingo halls are for people who think Chuck E. Cheese is too tame.

Two players had the same idea? What, was this something posted on Pinterest?

Somebody's going to H-E-double hockey sticks!
I worked in a nursing home, part time, several years ago. One of the first things I learned was to never step in front of a wheelchair when it was time for bingo. I had to break up several fights during these games but even they didn't tape winning numbers on their cards.

The movie with lunch at a local public library was much the same. Heaven forbid that someone sat in someone else's seat, even when the someone else has no longer alive.

It was described by staff as "We went to the fights and a movie broke out"
