Another trip to Disneyland last night took us on Buzz Lightyear again. While boarding Buzz, we witnessed the biggest amount of Jerkitude I've seen in a long time.

First of all, young children are not allowed to ride alone. A good rule, I think. Each car is supposed to hold three people. Three adults would be a tight squeeze (not to mention there are only 2 laser blasters per car), but a kid and two adults or two kids and one adult--no problem.

Then we witnessed this poor woman struggling to board the car. She had a child who looked to be 3 or 4, herself, a small baby on her lap, and a child who looked to be 2 or 3 years old. As this woman crams herself and her 3 children into the car, they have to stop the ride (which runs continuously--you board the car on a moving platform so the ride doesn't have to stop, exactly like The Haunted Mansion). Then, after squeezing herself in and stopping the ride for all of the other guests, her husband boards the car behind her by himself to ride alone, with no children.

What The Fuck?! (pardon my potty mouth)

We could not believe this guy. And it was past 11:00 at night--had he been doing this all day? His wife certainly looked haggard enough to indicate that he had. You just had to wonder what their day-to-day life was like.

That is a fantastic word - I may have to steal *ahem* I mean borrow it sometime ;-)

I feel sorry for her poor husband. I bet he looked browbeaten.
