These Germs Are Jumping All Over The Place

, , , , , , | Right | November 4, 2020

I work at a trampoline park. I am working at the front desk with one of my coworkers when I get a call from what I think will be a future customer.

Caller: “Hello. My son bought me a coupon to jump at your park, but it expires soon and I happen to have whooping cough and I need to go to the doctor. Will you be able to take my coupon even if it’s expired?”

Me: “I’m afraid not, ma’am. The system won’t allow me to override anything.”

Caller: “Well, if you won’t take my expired coupon, then I guess I’ll just have to come in while I’m still sick and infect your arena. You have kids jumping there, right? Do you want them to be exposed to whooping cough?”

Me: “Ma’am, I’m sorry, but there’s only so much I can do.”

I tell my coworker that we’re basically being threatened with biological warfare over an expired coupon. She says we should call the police, but at that moment, our manager comes by and says to accept the expired coupon. I tell this to the woman.

Caller: “Okay, great! I have kids, too, ya know, and I wouldn’t want them to be exposed to anything like this.”

I still don’t know if she came to jump or not.
