a better question:
why does DCA have blackout dates? the majority of my summer was blacked out and i kept wondering why i couldn't just go to DCA during the blackout period, because i highly doubt they were entertaining capacity crowds.
it was so bad that i went to knott's during the blackout for the "half off after 4pm" deal. while i did hit every single attraction with a 0-10 minute wait time, the vast majority of knott's employees are just awful. i got the impression that they were cussing me out in their heads everytime i looked at them. when you walk up to a food or merchandise counter, most of the time they don't even say "hi" much less "thanks" or "have a nice day." i call shenanigans on that whole park.
ps. to any CM reading this, i love, appreciate and respect you - unless you're the girl from the dole whip stand who 'jokingly' lied about the machine being broken on wednesday, then called me a loser when i fell for your lame joke. you need to go get a job at knott's where you'd fit in.
