A couple of amazing photos. I don't think I'd want to mess with these two...

I say if you're disabled and have to use a wheelchair, I have no problem with them jumping the line. It's difficult to get around when you're disabled and this act of kindness I think is something that able-bodied people should deal with. Yes, people will cheat the system. So what. Deal with the ones you catch. Do not punish everyone for the actions of others.
I really dislike people who cannot be a bit flexible and understanding.
My Dad and I have been trying to talk my mom into going to Disney - they haven't been in YEARS. She's had a couple of heart attacks in the past and gets chest pains, so walking around all day would be too much. We keep telling her to rent a wheelchair and go but she won't because of pride. I didn't even think of the whole line issue!!!

I understand. My aunt would not use a wheelchair until she had absolutely no other alternative. She eventually died of her disease that made her disabled (ALS)

They also scan your fingerprint when you enter the parks now.

I get what you're saying, but my point is that Disney can't call people out on being friends or relatives. Who are they to say that this wheelchair-bound person doesn't have two groups of friends who want to go to the park with him/her on consecutive days? Disney can't govern relationships.
And by law -- according to the ADA -- a business manager/owner/employee can ask if you are disabled/need special assistance, but they can't ask you what your disability is. They must take the person at their word. Their hands are fairly tied.

To match it up with your ticket. I never thought about the problem squishy mentioned where she mixed up everyone's cards and had a problem the next day. Never thought about that because ours are usually some kind of residential or annual pass so we each have our names and signatures on our passes.

Two people want me to walk with them at lunch, but honestly, I'd rather just walk by myself and listen to my ipod for half an hour.

the one i miss most, we used to gossip about all kinds of thigns... it was nice to be able to talk shop (ok, rant, rave & vent) to someone who gets teh issues and understands teh use of vague details... ;-)

there were times i'd go out and stop around teh paths too, in order to vent off some frustration and excess energy.

Heh I'd be more up for that with certain coworkers, but not the two who've asked me to join them on their walks. ;)

Exactly!!! Especially when they have those great deals. They had one at Disney - 4 days for $129.$32.25 a day instead of the normal $89. They son't want us sharing THAT deal with our friends!

Great. Now I feel like a walk and I already came in late today and took a long lunch, so no dice.

Oh, for those who are friends with Jmw on facebook, she's even prettier in person!

So I had a dentist appt. yesterday. Dentist found a tiny, new cavity ON A FRONT TOOTH. Yikes. But he had a spare half hour and was able to fix it immediately.(I can't even tell where he did his work.)

I asked him, "I was going to have cocktails at 4 to celebrate the record-breaking heat outside, do I need to wait a certain amount of time?" He said to have one as soon as i walked in the door if I wanted.

Your dentist is awesome.

And thanks for the compliment! We should have gotten gay married!
