3,500 people came through the museum yesterday. What a nightmare! Spring break. Once again, it was the parents who were assholes. One cannot blame the child if the parent merely looks the other way when a curious little one pops the top off a stanchion head. Worse yet when the parent argues that there is nothing wrong when his child smacks a two million dollar car with a large lollipop.
The worst groups are the spring break “camps” run by the YMCA. Those are merely places to warehouse kids while the parents work. Dragging kids around on field trips every day is merely expensive babysitting. The counselors have absolutely no control over the kids and they don’t WANT to have control. They want to collect their minimum wage at the end of the week and call it good.
And it isn’t just the kids who get into trouble. We have had to ask adults to not sit in cars or play with the gearshifts, etc. We found someone trying to unbuckle the hood of this car.
Asshat actually stepped over the chain and into the display area….and actually started unclipping the hood buckle. What can I say?
Waldo stopped by too yesterday.
Can you see him?
It should be quieter and nicer today.
