Fast Pass Holders And Hypocrites This Way

| Orlando, FL, USA | Friendly | May 27, 2017

(I am at a big theme park with my family. We go every once in a while and are waiting in line for a kiddie coaster to relive some nostalgia. The line’s backed up to the point that they’ve set up extra outside the constructed line and it gets a little wide and crowded so you have to be aware of where you are in the order. I notice I’m faced with a gaudy leopard print shirt that wasn’t there five minutes ago. I like to people watch and this woman was definitely not in front of us before.)

Brother: *softly* “I think that woman just cut in front of us when we weren’t paying attention.”

Me: “Yeah, I thought something was up but I didn’t wanna say anything.”

Brother: “Should we just… slip back in front of her at a wide turn to avoid an altercation?”

(I am nervous about it, but we do, since she has an obnoxious air about her. We are young teens, and we decide between the two of us that she was DEFINITELY not there before. Her son notices. Yikes.)

Son: “Were those people in front of us before?”

Woman: *easily loud enough for us and probably a few people in front and behind the four of us as well to hear* “No, they were not. People like that just like to cut in line because they don’t care about anyone but themselves, honey.”

(She went on for about five minutes about what horrible, selfish line-cutters we were and never to be like us when SHE cut in front of US! I couldn’t believe the nerve this woman had. I kinda hope she wandered in front of us without realizing so that kid isn’t being raised by such a hypocrite.)

Cranking That Inconsideration Up To 104

, | Orlando, FL, USA | Working | May 19, 2017

(I work for a third party vendor at a theme park. One night around midnight, my four-month-old son wakes me up by screaming. When I check on him, he has a 104-degree fever. I immediately put him in his car seat and race to the emergency room. I watch them do everything they can to try to bring his fever down for hours and finally admit him. Around six am I call the store to let my supervisor know that I won’t be at work that day. I fill her in on everything that has happened, including that he still has a fever of 100.)

Boss: “So I can assume you already have your replacement lined up?”

Me: “No. I don’t even have shoes on, let alone the list. And even if I hadn’t been freaked out that my son was dying, I seriously doubt that anyone would answer the phone at one am!

(My boss proceeds to scream at me that I’m a horrible, inconsiderate employee and that she’s going to write me out.)

Me: “You know what? Go ahead.” *hangs up on her*

(Later that afternoon, the owner showed up at the hospital to offer me my job back, with the next week off to take care of my son. I was there for another two years before that same supervisor fired me for getting sick at work.)

Didn’t Get The Shipping News

, | Orlando, FL, USA | Right | May 5, 2017

(I work at a theme park in the middle of theme-park-land Florida. It’s a popular park that people come from all over to visit. It is not owned by the mouse, but his guests come visit us too often. Like the other popular park, we offer to send your purchases to either the front of the park or your hotel, as long as you’re staying on our property, for free. Today this happened between a guest and my coworker while trying to explain how this works.)

Guest: “I’d like to send this to my hotel.”

Coworker: “Certainly. Are you checking out tomorrow?”

Guest: “No.”

Coworker: “All right. Which hotel is it?”

Guest: *Hotel in Other Theme Park*

Coworker: “Oh, I’m sorry. That’s in [Other Theme Park]. I can’t send it there. I can send it to the front for you to pick up on your way out, though.”

Guest: “What do you mean you can’t ship it to my hotel?! You offer free hotel shipping.”

Coworker: “Yes, we offer free shipping to hotels on [Theme Park] property.”

Guest: “But why does that matter? Just send it.”

Coworker: “I can’t, ma’am. I’m sorry. We’re different companies and my register doesn’t even have the option to send there.”

Guest: “But why can’t you send it?! You offer free hotel shipping!”

Coworker: “To hotels on our property. I can’t send it to another company’s hotel.”

Guest’s Daughter: “I told you they were different companies and couldn’t do it.”

Guest: “Whatever. I’ll just take it.”

Coworker: “Okay, that’s going to be [total].”

Guest: *hands over gift card for [Other Theme Park]*

(Needless to say the conversation started all over again about why we couldn’t accept a gift card for another theme park.)

It’s Free To Complain Too

| NJ, USA | Right | May 1, 2017

(It’s 2001. I’m working the merry-go-round at a very popular theme park. After riding it three times with his kids, the customer approaches me after his ride is concluded.)

Customer: “You know this ride isn’t very fun.”

Me: “How much did you pay?”

Customer: “Excuse me?”

Me: “How much did you pay to ride this ride?”

Customer: “Err… well, none.”

Me: “Then I guess you got what you paid for.”

(He stared at me for a moment then broke out into laughter. I’m glad he had a sense of humor!)

Has His Own Private Reasons

| Toronto, ON, Canada | Romantic | April 22, 2017

(A coworker runs up to me, looking scared.)

Coworker: “[My Name], a guy just asked me where he could find a private room and I told him I don’t swing that way. Why does everyone think I’m gay? Is it my hair?”

Coworker #2: “Is that the guy asking you for a private room?” *points to young man with baby and stroller*

Coworker: “Yeah, what a creep!”

Me: “You didn’t think he was asking so he could change the baby’s diaper or something?”

Coworker: “Oh… you think so?”
