Who DOES That?

Stuff I saw from being at Universal last Saturday....

  1. Parents are lax at keeping track of their kids. No, really. They are. There were at least 2 to 3 times where we had a young child walking with our tribe because that child's parent wasn't paying attention. And we aren't talking a 9 or 10 year old kid, no, I'm talking a 3 or 4 year old child wandering aimlessly around the theme park. How does this happen now a days? All I can even think of when we are there with my kids is "Ok where are they?" "do we have all the kids with us?" "Where are my kids?" How do these idiots, who should damn well be worried about kidnappings and molestation of their offspring, not keep track of a 3 year old? What the fuck?!?
  2. Deodorant should be mandatory for entrance to a theme park. There should also be an attendant in front of every ride line with an aerosol spray can of deodorant just in case someone's scent becomes "offensive". The close quarters of a ride line coupled with an odoriferous person can make that 15 minute wait seem like F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
  3. No matter how windy, chilly, rainy, crappy the weather is at a theme park, tourists are going to ride all the water rides come hell or high water. They paid God knows how much for a plane ticket, spilled out bucket loads of cash for a hotel and food, then paid $$$ to get in the park so THEY ARE GOING TO RIDE THE DAMN LOG FLUME/RIVER RAPIDS! And don't tell them there's a weather delay due to lightning, noooooo... that will get a 300 pound woman who is pale as a ghost from living in the great white north up in the face of some 20 something kid who is just doing his job. We get it. You only have 5 days here in Orlando to enjoy every little thing, but just remember, Unless it's a hurricane, give it a few minutes and the weather will pass.
  4. This isn't a bad one, but it was funny. During the Big Time Rush concert, while all the little teen girls were screaming and fainting over those ADULT boys on stage, most of the parents were hiding out in one of the restaurants looking like refugees who had come in from a ship wreck! Glad to see that they thought enough to bring their kids, but funny to see them slumped over in booths and at tables looking like death warmed over. LOL!
And there you have it.
