Their Opinions Are Jumping All Over The Place

, , , , | Right | November 4, 2019

(I work at an amusement park at three different rides: a bungee-jumping-type ride with an extremely high drop, a rollercoaster, and a chair swing ride that’s very popular with smaller kids. I’m at the bungee jump ride when two teenage boys get off.)

Coworker: “Did you have fun?”

Boy #1: “That was so pathetic!”

Boy #2: “I know, right?! They need to make the drop like, three hundred feet taller for me to be scared.”

Boy #1: “The rides here really aren’t that thrilling at all. Maybe I’m just too hard to scare.”

(Later on, I move to the chair swing ride and notice the same two boys lining up. They’re talking quietly to each other but I can still hear their conversation.)

Boy #1: “I dunno. This looks really intense.”

Boy #2: “Look how high it goes!”

Boy #1: “Come on, we can do this.”

(I had to fight the urge to remind them of their previous feedback at the bungee jumping ride.)
