The Pool Rules Might Need To Be Trunk-ated

, , | Right | January 22, 2019

(I work in a pool that is in a very interesting downtown area. For some reason, that means we have a lot of people try to go swimming in their underwear. This is the exchange I have with a man who is headed towards the hot tub, clearly in grey boxer shorts.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but you need to wear proper swimwear to enter the pool.”

Customer: “I’m just going into the hot tub.”

Me: “…which is a pool, just smaller. I’m sorry, sir, but it is a health and safety policy.”

Customer: “Are you serious? Why does it matter?”

Me: “Sir, bathing suits are more hygienic and are made to withstand the chemicals in the pool. Underwear is not.”

Customer: “Argh, fine!” *storms off*

(Less than five minutes later, he returns in swim trunks.)

Customer: “Okay?”

Me: *confused* “Yes, go ahead.”

(Why did he try to go in boxers if he had swim trunks all along?)
