    Swimmer: “Could you please close the doors? There’s a draft coming into the pool.”

    Me: “Sure.”

    (After closing the pool, a customer watching her child swim calls me over.)

    Mother: “Could you please leave the doors open? I’m claustrophobic.”

    Me: “Of course!”

    (After opening the doors again, the swimmer talks to me.)

    Swimmer: “Why are the doors open?”

    Me: “A customer here is claustrophobic, and asked me to leave the doors open.”

    Swimmer: *yelling angrily* “What’s more important, her claustrophobia, or my comfort?”

    (We are doing rescue and CPR training with the other lifeguards).

    Customer: “Excuse me, do you guys have to do that now with all these people in the pool?”

    Me: “Sorry sir.”

    Customer: “I see this guy in the water and I think he’s drowning. I try to go help him, but he tells me it’s just training.”

    Me: “Sorry for the confusion, sir. Please swim behind this barrier so that the lifeguards can complete their training.”

    Customer: “And other people have pushed their kids out of the way so guys can do your thing! I mean, what would happen if the kids got hurt? What would you do?”
