    Shocking CM slang!

    I used my premium annual pass to park today and the CM said "Oh, you're a preemie." and waved me through.

    Does he not know that preemie means premature baby? I don't find that accurate at all, as I can clearly drive a car and consider myself well out of the baby range, premature or otherwise. This slang can be taken in the wrong way and likely shouldn't be used. Talk about a PAP smear. I had to explain why he likely called me a preemie to my shocked guest.

    I wonder what other slang lurks around the park?

    I'm sure there are disgruntled passholders that give them a bad name. You know, the type that would hold that over the head of a CM to try and get special treatment.

    Re: Shocking CM slang!

    It's sad. It made me almost scared to admit to buying one when I did this year.

    Because of the bad stigma, I have made it a point to be the nicest I can be whenever I am there.

    Re: Shocking CM slang!

    I know I have an ap.....but I make fun of myself sometimes...by using scarcasim....but I treat CM's with total respect...they are working just as hard as anyone else..and they deserve respect.......but if a CM does not respect me just because they use a stereotype...because I have run into CMs that are very disrespectful....but then again I have not seen those CMs again

    Re: Shocking CM slang!

    I wouldn't lose too much sleep over the CM slang.

    Just part of the job, and not directed towards anyone personally.

    Every field that I have been in uses some sort of slang towards the public/customers.

    Even if you never did anything wrong or out of line towards any type of employee, you'll get thrown into the mix by being one of "them".

    No big deal...
