Listen. Most of the people who run those game booths at amusement parks are bored teenagers who definitely don’t get paid enough to deal with your crap.
Also, hint about life in general? If you want something from someone, berating them is generally not the way to go about it.
This kid worked at a booth where the objective was to make 4 hockey goals as quickly as possible. You have 1 minute to hit them all, but you get a better prize if you do it fast.
This dad was feeling cocky, and promised his kid he would win a prize that required him to hit all 4 goals in less than 20 seconds. The employee explained this, then let the dad have a go.
He made it in 25 seconds, and the family started screaming that he deserved (?) a redo.
He agreed to the redo after taking their crap for a few minutes, but of course, had his own plan in mind.
Instead of staying silent, he heckled the guy, who took almost the entire 60 seconds to hit the 4 goals the second time around.
The family wanted the first prize instead of the one he won with his crappy time, but the employee, who was finished with their bs, shrugged and said no.
Not even a kid crying about it would change his mind.
On the one hand, I’m not all about making kids cry.
On the other hand, maybe it’s better he or she learns now that his parents kind of suck.
