- In the Parks
Part of me always wonders if this sort of thing works out because of relative importance - if you have very little, very little things look a lot bigger. But if you have the kind of money where you can have issues with figures in the 6 or 7 digits, there's also a higher liklihood that you can afford to navigate that problem without it being a major inconvenience.Yep... and it's really strange that the less important something is... the more upset people get. I've worked guest relations at a non-Disney park and I've also worked as management at a very large bank. The people at the bank who I talk to about issues they are having with amounts of money that get into the 6 or 7 digits are always super calm about it. But tell one mom that her kid is too short to ride a giant roller coaster and you won't hear the end of it.
Which isn't to justify anyone's behavior - for sure I've seen people have disgusting reactions to minor inconveniences in service and retail and I have no intention of giving those a pass. But if your kid is too short for Space Mountain after you saved for 7 years to take them, that's a bigger problem for you than it is for the guy who can afford to bring their kid back next year like it's nothing.
