I agree, the motorized things are a hazard in thoughtless hands and there are too many thoughtless drivers... dodged too many in the park yesterday, some going very fast.
The non-confrontation confrontation ;-)
Guy honking at me last week, at every stop sign, like... don't stop.... I got out of my car, looked at the rear of it, and asked "What?" he went ballistic... I pretended to thank him for letting me know a tail light was out "which light dear?" (sweetest)
really didn't work... next intersection he burned rubber around me, ran the sign, sped down a narrow residential street (toward a street famous for its rigidly enforced 25 mph and hidden sheriffs cars)... chubby old guy with a handicapped plate... looked like some one's grandpa..... mad road demon
what is with people? Is it in the water? A side effect of the effluviums of plastic containers?
We need a new reality show called "Get your manners on"
I know it is not correct English but that seems to be a turn off like good manners
Chip and Dale... "after you" "no, after you" "no, I insist, after you"
To the OP, I was waiting for your story to unfold to where you drew the bat on the rude guests declaring "have you ever seen inglorious basterds? Because my favorite character was Donnie Donowitz. I don't know we just have so much in common!".
At least, that's how I would have handled it. And then the lady in the wheelchair would post a "rude guest" thread about me.. go figure.
I agree with another poster who mentioned that the CM pointing out that you had an inhaler in your bag is totally inappropriate. One time, I had a CM pull out a pill bottle in my backpack and show his coworker - granted he was showing it off because I had covered it in rhinestones (what? I'm a pharmacist! I like to bedazzle the bottle I use to hold ibuprofen), but had it held some embarrassing medication, or had I been in a sour mood, I would have been really upset about it. Sounds like maybe they could use a bit more training in this regard.
When people are so rude to me like that ie: encroaching on my personal space, running into me repeatedly perhaps on purpose who knows, etc. what I do is just run into them right back and make it look like an accident. If the person is behind me, I just back up abruptly or swing my bag over my shoulder quickly to create a bubble around myself. Either that or just start coughing really loudly and hope they steer clear.
As for the bat, I thought Disney sold souvenir bats like that at one point.
I don't see why there is so much back-and-forth at security.
Also, a no-bag line would be nice to have.
"Guests" like the wheelchair demon are one of the main reasons I won't go to any of the parks (Disney or otherwise) on heavy crowd days if I can at all avoid it. There's no way I can possibly remember all the idiots and thugs with strollers or chairs who've decided ramming the wall of crowd in front of them was appropriate. The ONLY time I've ever seen anyone remotely contrite is when they've been encouraging their small child to do it and yelled at said child when called on it.
Humanity. Love 'em on a one-to-one basis, stinking scheming bastards when in a mob.
Bad situation for sure and you handled it well. That being said, karma will get them... they are going to the rain forest cafe after all. That place is TERRIBLE!
An old lady in a motorized wheelchair, took down my friend and me as we waited for the fireworks show to begin. She hit us from behind and never once said "I'm sorry" or even "get out of the way". We would have turned her over if we could have caught her, but we were too injured to give chase.
I've always assumed that the aggressive stroller and wheelchair people at Disneyland are the same people who tailgate other drivers when they're behind the wheel of a car. The rides/buildings aren't going to get up and walk away just because the people in front of you exist.
