People are people too.

The always-entertaining Not Always Right posted the following conversation:

(Theme Park | Schaumburg, IL, USA)
(I am seating guests for a ride.)

Me: “Sir, I’m sorry but we can only fit two riders in a seat and four in a car.”

Guest: “It’s alright, the baby can sit in my lap.”

Me: “Sir, I apologize, but we don’t allow lap sitting either. It’s dangerous for the baby. The lap bar can seriously injure her if we had to do an emergency stop on the ride.”

Guest: “Wait, so you’re telling me that she counts as a person?”
This comes up a lot at my job too. You can have a maximum of 2 people per bedroom in an apartment and occasionally, I'll have people with a child that want to move into a one bedroom. I explain the policy and how there is a max of two people in that floor plan and they'll say "but she's only 3" and I'll say "she's still a person."
