How fast the weeks fly by when the weather is warm. I can't believe today is the first day of Summer! I'll make up my lack of post-age recently with my stay-cation day trip to Six Flags Great Adventure this past weekend.
Bud and I usually try to schedule a trip to Six Flags every now and then. I'm not a big fan of the 3 hour drive and well, Jersey in general, but hey, you take the good with the bad. I'll sum up the day and say we had a blast and we did enjoy a great day with our friends. I just have to bring up a sore spot that I have with Six Flags corporate for a few paragraphs.
An "Epic Fail" award goes to your Marketing Department, Six Flags. Whoever came up with the idea of putting concession stands in the middle of the queuing areas should be fired - or forced to stand in line. Not only does it really mess up the flow of the line and results in a longer overall wait time; it caused me quite a bit of drama.
A middle-aged man (who looked like Bob Saget just to give you a visual) proceeded to yell at me and my group for moving around him while he stood at the concession stand and bought what seemed like every item the concession stand sold. Now obviously, we knew the man was in front of us, and of course we would have let him back in front of us after he finished buying snacks for the whole entire theme park. As we politely passed him in line to give him room, he began shouting quite heatedly that we were "cutting him" (because this was clearly the 6th grade lunch line) and that he was "still in line". Thank you Captain Obvious.
So, of course, in true Expedition Evans awkwardness, I turn toward him and said back firmly, "RELAX. We will obviously let you back in line in front of us. Get your nachos, and it'll be FINE." This was all thanks to you, Six Flags corporate (we did let him back in line, just in case you were wondering).
What can I say, I don't like to be sassed.....and also, who REALLY needs a plate of nachos before careening down a steel track at 60 miles per hour and flipped upside down 5 times? Seriously? I digress.
Happy Summer everyone!
