Tasting Is Believing

, , , | Right | September 30, 2009

(The pool I work at is run using a saltwater system instead of chlorine. I am in the process of adding salt to the pool when a hotel guest shouts at me from a poolside chair.)

Hotel Guest: “Miss! What are you putting in that pool?”

Me: “It’s just salt. It’s not dangerous to you or anyone swimming in it. In fact, it makes the water that much safer.”

Hotel Guest: “Salt? That makes no sense! No one puts salt in a pool! They put chlorine! Why are you lying to me?”

Me: “Sir, I assure you that this is nothing more than food grade salt.”

Hotel Guest: “I don’t believe you! It has to be chlorine! Get over here!”

(I walk over to the man with my bucket of salt, where he proceeds to stick his entire hand in, pick up salt, and eat it.)

Hotel Guest: “Oh… I guess it is salt. Can I have a glass of water?”
