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

    | Valencia, CA, USA |

    (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?”

    May We Suggest The Child Protective Services Ride

    | Wisconsin, USA |

    (I am working at the bumper cars at an amusement park, where there is a height restriction.  A guy comes up with his son who is clearly too short.)

    Me: “I’m sorry sir, your son is too short to ride on the bumper cars.”

    Customer: “I just waited for 2 hours in line to go on the bumper cars, and you won’t let my son ride!?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, but there are signs outside that show the height restrictions before you got in line.”

    (The customer then proceeds to grab his son around the throat and lift him up by the neck and holds him up to the sign.)

    Customer: “There! Now he’s tall enough!”

    Me: “Get the h*** out of here!”

    When In Doubt, Improvise

    | Darien Center, NY, USA | Top

    (Some days when there aren’t enough lifeguards, we have to close off the deep end of the wave pool – but, we aren’t allowed to tell guests that reason.)

    Customer: “What’s with the buoy line?”

    Me: “It’s there to keep you from entering the deep end.”

    Customer: “Well, duh! Why is it there?”

    Me: “Oh, the deep end is closed right now.”

    Customer: “That’s so f****** stupid! There’s no reason the deep end should be closed!”

    Me: “I’m sorry, sir. The water is…broken.”

    Customer: “Oh, sorry then. Have a nice day.”

    Daddy’s Little Grown-Up And Not-So-Bright Girl

    | San Antonio, TX, USA |

    Customer: “I’m lost. Can I use your phone?”

    Me: “I’m sorry, our phones don’t call outside the park.”

    Customer: “Can’t you call somebody to help me? I’m lost and I can’t find my daddy.”

    Me: “Sure. How old are you?”

    Customer: “19.”

    Me: “… I’m afraid our security only helps lost children.”

    Customer: “But I AM lost.”

    Me: “Well, do you know his cell number?”

    Customer: “Yeah.” *pulls out cellphone*

    It’s Always The One You Least Suspect

    | San Diego, CA, USA |

    (My job at the theme park is to explain the rules at certain rides.)

    Mom: “Who told you couldn’t ride sweetie?”

    Kid: *points at me*

    Mom: “Why did you send my kid back down to me?!”

    Me: “Sorry, he’s too short for this ride, but you guys are more than
    welcome to play in the other areas.”

    Mom: *points at another kid* “But he is WAY shorter than my son!”

    Me: “No, sorry. I measure every child and he made the minimum height.”

    Mom: “That’s ridiculous. Can’t my son go just once? He’s waited all day to play over here.”

    Me: “No, sorry…”

    Mom: “You’re just a prude.”

    Me: “I probably get more than you do.”

    Mom: *jaw drops*
