    If You Can’t Stand The Heat, Get Out Of The Solar System

    (This exchange happened while I was taking tickets at the entrance to the park.)

    Customer: “You have a very serious problem with your lines.”

    Me: “Ma’am, I’m very sorry, what was the problem?”

    Customer: “I have been standing out here for twenty minutes in the sun waiting to get into the park. You need to do something about that sun…turn it down or something.”

    Me: “Ma’am…I’m very sorry you were uncomfortable, but I really have no control over the sun.”

    Customer: “You can’t just turn it down? Who can I talk to around here to get something done about this?”

    Me: “You can go talk to Human Resources, ma’am… but I really don’t think they’ll be able to control the sun either.”

    Customer: *storms off*

    Customer #2: *walking up* “So…what’s it like controlling the weather?”
