Babies and toddlers shouldn’t go to amusement parks like Disney World, Cedar Point, Kings Island, etc.

A. They will be too young to remember their experience. B. They will most likely be too short to ride everything. It just seems like a waste of money and time if your kids can’t fully participate in everything that’s included in your stay and they’re not going to remember majority of it! So many parents enter these parks like they are staying for a week because of strollers, diaper bags, toys, etc. It just seems so stressful and exhausting. Not a vacation for them either. I feel lucky my parents waited until I was a teenager to go to these places because I appreciated it a lot more.

Sure, I'll repaint the islands with the wrong paint.

This one I felt kinda bad for because it involved a few injuries, very minor ones luckily. I didn't want to do it, but it came down to my job, so I complied. Here is the story.

Years and years ago, back in the early 90s, I worked as a manager at a gas station. We had a great area supervisor who decided to retire, we were all very sad, and even more sad when her replacement came in. He was a total butt. He had just come out of retiring from the military and felt that with his military experience he could whip us into shape. One of the things he wanted done was make the stations look good, which I'm 100% for, but also do it with as little money as possible, which was fine if it was the right thing to do. This time (one of several) it wasn't.

So around the pumps are these raised islands. The islands are painted on top with a special paint that has a good grit to it, so when it gets wet from rain or whatever, and people stand on them, they don't slip and fall. Well, this area supervisor wanted the islands repainted. So he got some paint out of our supply depot and dropped it off at all the stations he ran. No problem, I went around myself and painted the sides of all the islands. They looked great, but the tops of them were not painted.

So he shows up one day to inspect and sees that the tops aren't painted. Asks me why. I told him this isn't the right paint, it has to be the gritty thick paint because we don't want customers slipping and falling. He starts yelling at me, tells me he is going to fire me if they aren't re-painted by the next day, blah blah blah and says that it's not my responsibility to worry about the customers it's his. Total egotistical mindset. Do as I say, don't think.

So, I did what he said. I repainted all the tops of the islands that day, nice warm day in the fall, hadn't gotten wet yet really. Next days he shows up, looks around, and has this grin on his face that he "beat me into submission" type thing. Says something like "See, next time just do what I say, don't question my judgement." I just nodded, knowing what was about to come. And dreading it, because I knew that the customer was going to be the victim here, but there was nothing I could do.

A week later we get our first rain. Some of our islands stayed dry under the canopy, but about 1/2 of them got wet because the rain was coming in somewhat sideways. And then it happens. Lady gets out of her car in nice shoes with no grip, steps on the island, s

r/Reddit_Island users are being scammed by a redditor who claims to own an island and has dubbed him the "messiah".

First time poster, long time lurker. Let's see if I can do this right!

Credit to u/RunDNA for this removed post! His two text posts are removed. Here is what they said, thanks to Google Cache:

> Island Owner Here

> Throwaway account for privacy reasons.

> I’ve been reading about your attempts to buy either an island or town, and I think I might be able to help you guys out.

> I own a small island (about 120 acres) that my grandfather purchased about 40 years ago. As of right now, I only have a small cabin built on it and it’s been a dream of mine to build a community there for several years now.

> If you guys are willing to help fund any construction or legal costs, I’d be happy to help set up a self-sufficient society of redditors there.

> Please DM me if you’re interested, mods.

"He's the Messiah!!" one poor user says, unbeknownst to the scam.

Island Owner asking for funding to chip in for construction...Chip in????? Credit to u/RunDNA for this removed post!

LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

> I’ve done a bit more research on what needs to be done to make this a reality.

> The plan is to start small and grow from there. Anyone that’s willing to aid with construction is encouraged to come help. The first priority is gonna be running water. Due to the heat, we’re gonna need a lot of water and it’ll be very difficult to transfer enough by boat. I had been looking into it beforehand and got it authorized, all we need is manpower to dig out areas to lay pipes.

> Another issue is the funding

> I’ve submitted applications for building permits for housing and other facilities. Once those are approved, it’ll cost a few hundred bucks to get them officially registered. We’re also gonna need to pay for boat rentals to transport people and supplies. I own a medium sized fishing boat, but it can only carry about 6 people, so we’ll need additional boats if more people are planning on coming.

> If anyone is able to fly to Cuba, reach out to me in DMs for where and when we should meet to go to the island.

> If anyone would like to chip in with the costs, my PayPal is ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛@⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ Any amount is much appreciated!
