Didn't Some of Us Predict That This Would Happen?

Here is an update on my fairly recent post about Disney hiring lifeguards on their cruise ships.  You may be surprised about who is following suit.

Funny, though, most of us predicted that Carnival would follow next.

Besides their duty of life guard.  Will they also monitor bad behavior or just sit there getting tanned?

oooooh noooooo!  It will be interesting to see the complaints about the children being reprimanded for improper behavior.  Another chance for parents to give up parenting.Surprised

In my sick fantasy world the life guards would be armed with tranquilizing darts and put down the people that think they are the only ones that exist and no one else matters.  Then drag them back to their cabins to sleep it off while the responsible passengers enjoy the pool.

They ought to make them walk the plank -- or at least the gangway at the next port stop.

"Pool NAZIs" LOL----Reminds me of the time I was talking to a lady in Hawaii who ran a little travel kiosk along side the resort pool. One of her responsibilities was to maintain order around the pool. Which she hated to do. Everybody is aware of the pool game kids play "Marco Polo". I bet every rule sign in Hawaii next to a pool says "No Playing Marco Polo". One time she said some youngsters were really getting with the Marco Polo game. So she went over and explained to them that they couldn't play Marco Polo.


A while later she overheard them again, "Christopher Columbus"--"Christopher Columbus".
