Captain’s Log 5,879
3,350 people at our No Pay Day yesterday. But who was counting? GAAAAAA!
Let’s all go the museum for a truly horrendous visitor experience! YAY!
Let’s stand in a long line to get in because…..it’s free! YAY!
And then let’s complain because it’s too crowded and we are taxpayers who deserve something better! YAY!
Let’s refuse to leave our strollers at the entrance! YAY!
Let’s bring our enormous pit bull with us and claim it’s a service dog! YAY!
Let’s look annoyed when Captain Poolie yells from the mezzanine at us for touching the cars. And we are forty years old! YAY!
Let’s just walk away from our kids and let them tear ass all over the museum! YAY!
I thought we had it bad. The museum next door has a fountain in the center of its large rotunda. Apparently, someone let their kid play in that water. Before anyone could stop it, more kids got in the water. The plants and surrounding landscape were all trashed – and they had wet and dripping kids running around the museum. These days are NOT fun! I wish the city council who demands that we do this would come and pay a visit during one of these awful days. About 50% of the people who show up are really nice. The other half are freeloaders with a huge sense of entitlement. I really don’t get it. I would NEVER take my child to something like this. It’s too crowded and very tiring for little ones.
I especially like the YMCA day camps that come through with 60 kids at a time. 60 kids who don’t care a whit about what’s going on. They just slog through the exhibits and are only waiting for fruit roll-up snacks once the boring stuff is over. Why bring those kids on such a busy day? Those kids can come to the museum any time and we would give them a special tour that would of interest to them. We cannot offer tours on a day like yesterday. Nobody would ever hear what a guide had to say.
I can only hope that the August numbers are less.
