We went to an amusement park today and I was appalled at some of the behavior practiced there. Some of the people were fine, and even nice. But, like everything else, a few bad apples spoil the batch.
We first had an issue, with what used to be called the whirligig. It is now called something else, but that is besides the point. The girl that was running the ride practiced fat-shaming. I was amazed when she insisted that the woman in front of me take off her waist purse. Instead, the woman left the ride! Then she targeted me. It took me a while to unwrap my purse and hand it over. This makes me extremely uncomfortable because they are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items. Great!
It wasn’t until after the ride that I found out that though Child #4 had to surrender her waist purse, Child #2 (who is slimmer) didn’t have that same experience. What?!!! So, because you didn’t like the look of some of the patrons, you decided that they needed to be punished by taking away their belongings, even though the seatbelt clicked over them AND their belongings. What is that crap?
I am so tired of people thinking that they know what’s best for me! Do you know why I look like I do? Maybe I have breathing problems and need to take steroids and those put weight on. Maybe, I’ve just suffered from cancer, and haven’t quite beaten the treatment! You don’t know!
So, stop thinking you know what’s best. You don’t, unless, of course, you have walked a mile in their shoes! No judging!!!
