Unfiltered Story #123444

(I work at a theme park which also includes a large animal safari. The park is located next to a forest and a lake, so occasionally animals will pass through, most often geese and woodchucks.)

Me noticing a large group of people pointing and taking photos : Excuse me can I help you all?

(Here I notice that the guests were crowded around a two foot long snapping turtle that had made it’s way from the lake)

Guest#1: Awww, I think it’s just so nice that you let the animals out for walks and fresh air.

Me: No, that’s actually a wild animal.

Guest#2: Hey would it be alright if I take a selfie with it?

Me: I would not advise doing so-

Guest#3: Can I pet it?

Me: No you can not.

Guest#4: Hey! Move out of the way I’m trying to get a picture of it!

(I had to wait 15 minutes constantly answering similar questions while I waited for security to come.)

New Facebook Recruitment Techniques

, , , | Right | October 8, 2018

My other half works as a team leader at a highly popular family theme park in the UK. She had a lady with her kids come up to her the other day to make a ridiculous complaint. The lady had apparently arrived at the entrance of the park and planned to meet her friend in the car park so they could enter the park together.

Unfortunately, this lady had left her phone at home and had no way of contacting her friend to organise where exactly in the large car park and entrance they were going to meet up. So, the lady approached one of the staff members at the turnstile gates who normally check wristbands, tickets, etc. She asked the staff member if she could get her phone out, go on Facebook, add the friend she wanted to meet up with, and message her on the lady’s behalf as to where they should meet.

Obviously, the staff member refused, explaining she was not allowed to have her phone on her at work, and even if she was, she wouldn’t be okay with doing such a thing. Unsurprisingly, the clueless lady then demanded a superior to complain to about the staff member’s lack of cooperation and helpfulness. The superior taking the complaint was my girlfriend.

We still wonder, a few days later, if she has ever gone up to any other strangers in the past and asked them to add other strangers on Facebook to message them for her.

You Can Tell When It’s Not Going To Go Swimmingly

, , , | Right | October 7, 2018

(I work at a water park. On this day we were closing early. A customer walks up to window with his son behind him, looks ahead, and sees a kid on his bike that’s going to come in.)

Customer: “Hey, kid, you can’t swim with your bike!”

(We do allow bikes since we have a bike rack for people to put them on.)

Coworker: “They are allowed to bring those in. I just wanted to let you know we close in about thirty minutes.”

Customer: “Are you f****** s***ting me?!”

Coworker: “No, sir.”

Customer: “Well, since it’s only thirty minutes, you should let me in for free.”

Coworker: “I can’t do that, sir.”

Customer: “Yeah, you can just turn your head.”

Coworker: “No, sir.”

Customer: “Well, if you won’t she—” *points to me as I am sitting behind my coworker* “—can!”

(I get up and go into the office where all of our supervisors and head guards are, and ask any of them to please come help. As I am doing this, my coworker has said we can get the manager, and now the customer has his head in the window shouting:)

Customer: “Manager, oh, manager!”

Supervisor: “Is there anything to do here, or are you on your way out?”

Customer: “Look. I promised my son he could swim, and now he’s not going to be able to, so you should just let us in free for the last thirty minutes.”

Supervisor: “No, I’m not going to do that; you can either pay or leave.”

Customer: “Fine.”

(He hands over his money and goes in, but the coworker doesn’t tender it because she sees him turn right back around in the park and start walking towards her.)

Customer: “Is this pool closed?!”

(We have two pools, and our pool that has the slides and lazy river has been closed for about a week.)

Coworker: “Yes, sir.”

Customer: “Just give me my d*** money back.”

Twelfth Fright

, , , , , | Right | October 5, 2018

(I am working a special nighttime event at which guests can pay an additional fee to receive unlimited desserts and access to a reserved area to watch the nightly fireworks presentation. Adults in the group also receive alcoholic drinks. A young guest of about twelve approaches me:)

Guest: “Excuse me, but isn’t the drinking age in Florida 21?”

Me: “Yes.”

Guest: “Well, my grandmother just gave me a drink, and it was champagne!”

Me: “Well, okay.”

Guest: “So, why did the bartender give it to her?”

Me: “Well, you have to understand that the bartender is required by law to make sure the person he serves is 21. What happens after he serves that person is not really his responsibility.”

Guest: *suddenly looking a bit scared* “But I drank some!”

Me: “Did you like it?”

Guest: “No! Am I going to get in trouble?”

Me: “No, no. It’s okay. You’ll be fine. No law was broken.”

Guest: *looking relieved* “Oh, okay.”

The Magical Kingdom Isn’t The Free Magical Kingdom

Me: “Hi, welcome to Disneyland! How may I help you?”

Guest: “Hi! I’d like to go to California Adventure.”

Me: “Okay. Is it just yourself?”

Guest: “Yes, just me.”

Me: “So, one for California Adventure for one adult will be $119.”

Guest: “Oh… I don’t have any money.”

Me: “What?”

Guest: “I don’t have any money; I just want to go in.”

Me: “Well, you need a ticket to get in.”

Guest: “Oh… the lady at the front said that I need a ticket.”

Me: “Because you do.”

Guest: “Well, how do you suggest I get in?”

Me: “Buy a ticket?”

Guest: “But I have no money.”

Me: “Then how did you expect to get in?”

Guest: “I thought maybe you would just hook it up.”

Me: “Ha! Are you serious?”

Guest: “Yes, I’m serious.”

Me: “Well, buying a ticket is the only way to get in.”

Guest: “Oh… Okay.” *reads name tag*

Me: “Yes?”

Guest: “That’s a beautiful name. I like it.”

Me: “Thanks… Me, too.”

(Awkward silence.)

Guest: “Okay, bye.”
