It's my day off today. I know I haven't written in a while, and everyone has probably been wondering if I'm dead. Just so you know, I am not yet dead. In fact, I feel like I could go for a walk. But, I do happen to be bored out of my mind.
The first apartment inpection was today so my roommates and I cleaned like crazy. We got knocked for having crumbs on our stove top. To be precise, there was ONE crumb on our stove top. I can see where jealousy has taken root. Our apartment was so fantastic the inspectors couldn't stand it. Ah well, happens a lot. It can be hard to be this awesome some times.
There's not much to do around here for free if you don't have time to get there. My wonderful mother sent me a Forever 21 card so I could go buy me some fabulous clothes and jewelry. But I'm saving that for another day when there's nobody home and everybody back home to call. So by boredom has forced me into blogging.
Another fun story was when a man stepped on the conveyor belt, we loaded his son on the ride, and then he turned around still standing and said "Is he tall enough to be on this ride?". As a Disney employee you have to be very friendly, so of course I was, but I very loudly had to say several time "Yes sir, please get on the ride." Would I really be letting people on if the ride was dangerous, or if the kid wasn't tall enough? What did they expect me to do? Oh well, what can you do?
Oh, and then when I'm working as Greeter (the person who stands at the ride entrance to answer questions and such) I often get the question "Is this really a 10 minute wait?". Disneyland is pretty dang accurate when it comes to wait times. But you know, even if the posted wait time was wrong...do you really think we'd post it? I mean, really, what do they expect me to say? "Nope. It's actually 60 minutes. We just like to laugh at the people waiting in line. Those silly people weren't smart enough to ask if the wait time was true. Good thing you were smart enough to ask." Of course not. Yes, it is only a 10 minute wait.
I'll try to keep funny stories from work updated, but they can be hard to recall after two weeks worth. They're pretty amusing. The more you spend time at work with the guests...the more you wonder what's going on in our public schools today.
