Manny's job when he was alive
 
I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before in this forum but i'd like to see what people think manny's job was before he died!

Personally i think we was a salesman, like Willy Loman in that Death of a salesman story. i've no idea why!

If anyone even still goes on this forum, what do you think?!

He could have been a salesman since he is one at the start of the game, but he also manages to give the cafe at the end of year 1 a complete makeover, to the Calavera Cafe (plus Casino), so I think he has decent managing capabilities as well. Maybe he already had his own cafe/restaurant when he was alive..

I don't know, he did something really bad though to deserve community service. Maybe he was a hitman, or a zoot suit rioter.

Asking Tim Schafer about Manny's background... That will lead us to the right answer, if he still remembers and doesn't get annoyed about asking him about GF after 10 years.

He was obviously a proffesional Skateboarder.

I always imagined Manny as a sucessful door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman and finally after annoying thousands of customers finally one person buys a vacuum and he gets hit by a car as he steps out into the street with the money in his hand.

Du Man 08-31-2008 11:13 PM

yes, hanging out with all those lonely housewives certainly earned him community service

Calavera seems like just the right person to sell vacuum cleaners.
It takes a lot of convincing to make someone buy a vacuum cleaner at the door. That'd also explain how he got the ship from the captain in year 3. A LOT of convincing.
But I think he sold bad suits. "Suits" him better.

He was black, thats why he had to do the community service in the afterworld.

...Woah.

Manny being a salesman when he was alive seems plausible. It makes sense to think that when he got to the Land of the Dead, the "powers that be" might of stuck him in a job that he already had some previous experience in.

I did, actually!

No dice, he wouldn't tell me. :<
