It's always an interesting day at the Patch. You never know what people are going to do or how they are going to react to following the rules. I can say the same for the teenagers working there.
I tell the kids all the time ... YOU ARE THE BOSS! Don't let these parents run you over or not follow the rules just because they are older. Of course we know there is always ONE ... and in this case at least TEN that think they can do whatever they want. It doesn't help when the workers LET them.
The lady said she was going to ride the slide. As she walked up I spotted sandals. As stated on not one, but THREE signs, you MUST WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES. In spite of calling her back as she pushed her two small children up the 30 feet high stairs, she refused to come down.
At the top the kids screamed and broke into tears, forcing me to stop the entire operation, and her to walk them all the way back down. After having a little talk with the kids, I guarantee you that never happened again. Why do people think they can do whatever they want? It surprises me every time.
