Our story begins a few months ago when a family friend needed some help with a renaissance fair that she runs every year.
Basically I just man the ticket counter and etc, take peoples money, give them a map and mark their hands, then send them off into an unknown world full of all the wonderful weirdos the fair has to offer.
Now we have tons of awesome people and it's fun cause I love animals and have gotten to pet some puppos and have seen tons of horses who are all fucking beautiful. There's been wonderful customers that understand 100% what I have to do and for them I try my hardest to give them a discount of like 2 bucks.
For example, there's a thing where if you're dressed up and stuff you can get 2 bucks off the ticket price for the one person.
Now normally myself and my mother, who's helping me, just give everyone in the group of people the discount if someone applies for it.
That way everyone goes in happy and if you're in a good mood you'll have more fun and leave in a good mood.
However despite that there's still the damn people that fucking insist on fighting with us despite us being nothing but kind since the second they walk up.
Example one, meet the mother of a witch.
This bitch came up with her son that she had throw a halloween witch mask on so my mom gave her the classic spill and told her it'd be $20 total. Now she was wearing a red dress and a flower crown, as soon as she heard 20 she spat "WELL I'M DRESSED UP" to which my mom replied we didn't classify that as dressing up.
She backed away from the counter pulled a side of her dress out and hissed "THIS IS RENAISSANCE ATTIRE" so my mom just said whatever and gave her the discount. She paid and walked off with her kid, then she stopped and just let her kid walk in without her.
Stood for 5 fucking minutes while her kid was unintended and we were taking care of other customers and when they were gone she came up and started going on about how her kid was dressed up and gets a discount too.
We kindly told her the kids already have a 4 dollar discount, to which she started to argue and my mother and I were both done. So my mom told her "If your two dollars will make you that happy then here you go" and she stomped off saying we needed to just honor our word of "If you dress up you get a discount"
We thought with all our hearts we were done with her, but of course stealing everything we hold dear was the only price she'd accept because as soon as she got home she took to facebook to drop the places rating and say she had horrible customer service. Despite the fact we were nothing but nice to her from the second she started her one way yell fest.
She also lied unsurprisingly, , not only were we fully aware of what the owner wanted, her being the family friend and thus having our orders directly from her.
But when we told her the kid didn't get a discount because he already got $4 off she just said that it says "any patron" never actually showed us her phone, the page or etc as oops there's no internet in the middle of a field my love.
So to this bitch who stole all my patience and time (and then left her kid alone with tons of weirdos around) kindly go fuck yourself, because you took your anger out on two poor people who couldn't defend themselves without making other people look bad. Because oh boy, if you had done that to me anywhere else I would have laid into you so hard you wouldn't have been able to speak.
Now for story two, this person was also annoying to me, but paled in compassion to the bitchy witch.
So 20 minutes before closing time a car drives up into view, now the ticket booth is placed right by the entrance of the fair. But there's parking out front meant for patrons and then parking in back meant for everyone working at the fair.
It's separated by a pretty decent sized dirt road and there's even a sign saying that past this point is only meant for workers and emt's to park. Despite that people apparently don't enjoy reading, or just don't have the brain cells for it and try to park there anyway, to only be told to go back out into the front.
Well this car pulls in past the sign up the dirt road and just stops right in the smallest spot so no one driving or walking would get past them. Inside there was a young dude and a young chick, now I personally found it annoying they just stopped dead center and sat there for a few minutes staring.
But the worst part was the chick seemed completely oblivious to the fact people could still see her, so she was practically eating out her ice cream cone very horribly. She would take one long lick and then just stop with her tongue out, still touching the ice cream and then repeat.
Thankfully though they left, but oh joy, nothing ever ends there otherwise it's not worth telling the story.
20 minutes later who do we see walk up, now ahead of time due to the fact I deal with so many people I didn't recognize them right away but as she loomed closer in her spotted dress. Trying to be a failed version of mini mouse, I realized who she was, her mouth hung open her upper lip curled into an awkward angle and thus began the moment I questioned if this lady was honestly this dumb.
We informed her and her boyfriend we were closed and if they went in no one would be open because well, we're closed...
She didn't like that very much and proceeded to say in an annoying voice "IT SAYS YOU'RE OPEN TILL 10PM"
Now I didn't think about it at the time but aside from Saturday's we aren't open until 10pm because well, people have jobs on Monday and don't want to be stuck in character until 10pm Sunday night, to drag themselves home and have to go to work in 8 hours.
We kindly told her we were open till 10pm on Saturdays and if she wanted they could come back next weekend, but she didn't like that.
Discount mini mouse wanted in and she wanted in now, despite what we were trying to tell her, so we just let her go. Everything was closed and if they weren't I doubt they would sell her anything since everyone was tired and just wanted to go home. So I hope she had fun walking around a field and getting dune grass stuck in her shoes.
I have more wonderful stories but given how long this is I will share them another time, I hope you guys have enjoyed the story of the bitchy witch and the discount mini mouse because I know I didn't.
