Never working with the public again if I can help it. I swear, they get crazier in heat and full and new moon. Used to work in a little non-profit aquarium. Most people were friendly, but every day you’d get at least 20 jerks. They’d expect it to be free, and would get pissed when it wasn’t. Kids were free, so they’d try to send their kids in alone. Weren’t allowed to do that, so they’d get pissed off again and leave in a huff. But the worst was a couple that came in my last day of work.
We had 5 minutes left before closing, when a couple with a two year old comes in. I tell them they it’s $2 per adult, but we’ve only got 5 minutes left. They beg and beg me to let them in for free, I was tired so I buckled and let them in. These people obviously could afford it, btw. As that happens, the little girl wets her pants and pees in the entryway (which is old wood and indoors, btw). It was a huge pee for a little girl, and made a big puddle that immediately started soaking into the wood! The couple just laughs, says she’s getting potty trained. Don’t offer to help clean up at all, don’t even apologize, and walk in to the aquarium. Stay ten minutes past closing, and don’t even say thank you on the way out.
