The Park Is Not Closing But The Customers Are Closing In

, , , , , | Working | September 28, 2019

I work at a popular theme park. Today, the park closes at 10:00, and it is currently 3:30. 

An announcement comes over the speaker system that says, “[Park] will be closing in 30 minutes. Thank you and have a good day.”

Cue everyone being confused and having a rush of customers who are either buying a whole lot of stuff or complaining about how they just got here and saying, “Doesn’t the park close at ten?” 

I see the line for guest service go out the door with angry customers demanding refunds because they just came and will have to leave. 

There is no announcement fixing the mistake and no supervisor calls the stores to tell them that there was a mistake. They just let the employees deal with irate customers.
