Can Parents Really Be This Dumb? By NightWolf
Thanks to XCashier for saving this for us!
At a hotel I used to work at, we had a front desk rep. call us on the
security radio yelling that guests were walking by the hotel outside and
there were kids hanging off the balcony from the 8th floor. Now this is
an 8 story hotel, and the side they were hanging off was the only side
of the hotel that had a road running along side the hotel. This was
also one of the busiest streets in town. So, we go up to the room, knock
on the door and see about 8 kids in this room. All of them were
teenagers and sure enough. One of them is literally hanging off the lower part
of the balcony with his feet just dangling, and he's 8 stories up
We start chewing on the kids telling them that it's not too bright to
be doing this. The parents come walking in and immediately start yelling
at us. "Why are you guys in our room with our kids?!?"
We tell the parents what the kids are doing, and (I sh$# you not!) She
says...."I don't see a sign on the windows saying the kids can't hang
off the balcony."
We all sat there in amazement. My boss says..."Lady! It's called common
sense! Get some!"
The lady actually went to the front desk to complain about the fact
that security would not let her kids hang off the balcony. The desk staff
was speechless. They had no idea what to say.
We also had cases where during kids groups, the kids would see who
could climb down from the 8th/7th floor balconies and make it to the
bottom. Of course, the adults staying with the group would just ask, did ya
make it down? The boys would say, yep! He would pat em on the back and
say GOOD JOB!!
What the heck is wrong with people these days? I would have killed my
kids had I caught them doing that crap!
"I don't want any part of your crazy cult! I'm already a member of the public library and that's good enough for me, thanks!"
