Would it be wrong...

if I look people right square in the eye and say..HUH?? I'm just askin' because some people seem to leave their common sense at home. Let me give you a for instance. We have a dive show scheduled every hour on the hour and I cannot tell you how many times I have been asked, by very normal looking people who are holding a PRINTED DIVE SHOW SCHEDULE IN THEIR HAND,"What time is the 10 o'clock dive show?" Well let's see....just for fun we moved the 10'clock dive show to 11:15. No reason, just for our own amusement. OH...I like this one too. "Are the sharks teeth real?" Of course not. Each of our sharks are fitted with dentures before they are placed in the tanks. Or here is another favorite. "You can't fool me...those fish aren't real, they are battery operated!" WOW! You are very observant as all of our fish are battery operated which is why Duracell is one of our major sponsors. The common sense people make you chuckle but the lady below makes you want to snatch her bald headed...as my grandma used to say.
One of our managers was walking behind a mother and baby when the mother deliberately dropped a diaper on the floor instead of walking 5 feet further to a trashcan. Our employee picked up the diaper and carried it to the trashcan but muttered under his breath, "I wonder how she would like it if I rang her doorbell, handed her $20 and left a giant dump in her living room." Oh yeah....fall is right around the corner.

Hey Jan. I know exactly what you are talking about. I worked with the public for a long time and remember the questions. But there is no excuse for the dropping the diaper in the floor.
And do you promise fall is just around the corner??? It is hot as all get up around here.

I can't believe someone would do that with a diaper! Yuck! Just came across your blog today, I LOVE IT! Hey, it's cool here in Illinois! A big shocker too! Wish they had spell checker on comments:(

Jan those are some real "here's your sign moments." And the diaper is just sick. Someone should have snuck it back into their diaper bag for a late day surprise.

"snatch her bald headed". Your grandmother was brilliant! This phrase is definitely going into my repertoire; right after I catch my breath from laughing!.
