It’s Always The One You Least Suspect

| | Right | September 6, 2008

(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*

    That was uncalled for and quite rude.
    She didn’t say one curse, you basically called her a slut.
    Not cool.

    • Rebekah

      No, OP basically said the mum wasn’t getting any because the mum had called her a prude for no reason.

      • Trillium

        Ah, misread a bit.
        Still kinda rude. Prude ain’t that of a bad word to warrant ANY sort of reaction, let alone impolite ones.

        • Rebekah

          She probably hit a nerve. Prude wasn’t really relevant to not letting her kid on anyway.

          • Rachel Schmachel

            She was saying that OP was too concerned with the rules.

          • Rebekah

            Yeah, you’re right, that’s one interpretation (clearly not the one OP chose). The mother should be glad she’s being prudential and not risking her child’s life.

    Rude, yes.

    That said, I won’t say she entirely didn’t deserve it, just you could have been a bit more… tasteful in your comeback.
