Ok. That one actually made me gasp out loud. That's horrible.

The funny thing is, even if I were the type of person to show such disrespect to another, there would still be flags going off in my head reminding me that pissing off the person who handles your food is probably not wise.

Does that really happen? I mean, I know facilities reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. I guess I just never thought someone could behave despicably enough to actually get thrown off. I know Disney "bans" for life, but they don't prevent your reentry. The ban just allows them to prosecute you for trespassing if you're caught on property misbehaving in the future.

Somebody posted something about someone they knew being informed they would not be accepted back on their cruise line. Can't remember if it was this board or cruise critic or which line in particular, but it was QUITE a surprise to me because I had not heard of it.

I don't know if it's really a real life "memo" per say. (sp?)

But that's what I meant about those 10. To inconvenience someone so terribly with no intention of following through is crap to the bones...

Based on my experiences working in Times Square, I could venture a pretty good guess as to what country they were from...

Unbelievable that some people think it's acceptable to treat people in the service industry like poop.

I have to ask....

Were these folks from that same unnamed country south of the US (actually on the WDW board they are named) that thinks standing in line isn't for them, or that screaming everywhere they go is also OK?

That is my guess also.

Apparently in their culture, people in service positions "cannot get anything better" and therefore many (I will give them the benefit of the doubt and choose to believe there are some without this mentality) feel it is ok to be rude to anyone working in the service industry.

Weird, here I thought it had to be the cast of "Real Housewives" on the cruise in question...
