When In Doubt, Improvise

, , , , | Right | January 23, 2009

(Some days when there aren’t enough lifeguards, we have to close off the deep end of the wave pool – but, we aren’t allowed to tell guests that reason.)

Customer: “What’s with the buoy line?”

Me: “It’s there to keep you from entering the deep end.”

Customer: “Well, duh! Why is it there?”

Me: “Oh, the deep end is closed right now.”

Customer: “That’s so f****** stupid! There’s no reason the deep end should be closed!”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. The water is… broken.”

Customer: “Oh, sorry then. Have a nice day.”
