The Height Of Politeness

| NY, USA | Right | July 14, 2016

(I was working at a local amusement park on the bumper cars. We have a measuring stick to make sure that the kids are tall enough to ride. Sometimes to brighten my day I would see a kid that I knew was tall enough for the ride and make it seem that they were too short by putting the stick on my foot. It usually got a few chuckles from customers. One day I had a very tall guy come up so I raised the stick in the air.)

Me: *serious voice* “I’m sorry, sir, you are too tall for this ride.”

Customer: “Okay.” *turns and starts walking away*

Me: *stunned at first then calls out to him* “Sir, I was just kidding! You can ride.”

Customer: *smiles and comes back* “Thank you.”

(The man made my day!)
