Someone Doesn’t Like Brits
Today, the world is extremely mobile and accessible. Journeys to different countries that used to take months by ship or foot now take mere hours. While this is a good thing, the more different cultures mingle, the more obvious our differences are.
Accents are something that some find attractive and others can’t stand. This girl clearly falls into the latter category, but it really makes us wonder why she went on a date… with an English person… in England. Some things just can’t be explained.
Biting Is Bad
When we’re little, we put anything and everything in our mouths. It’s completely natural to try and taste the world around us as children. But, this is something that we grow out of, as it’s not healthy.
It seems this guy didn’t get the “no biting anymore” memo, though. We can understand wanting to smell a nice perfume, but to follow it with a bite is straight-up weird. Maybe he thought he was being seductive when, in fact, it’s just creepy.
She’s Always Watching
It’s always best to try to end romantic relationships in an amicable way, but sometimes, that simply isn’t what happens. Maybe a partner was unfaithful, or perhaps they showed red flag behaviors that led to the end of the relationship.
The question here is, how exactly did they break up and who broke up with who? Because the ex-girlfriend clearly isn’t over it. We mean, going to extreme lengths like making a fake Tinder profile is pretty serious (and scary).
Some People Have Bad Manners
Some people just seem to lack the skills to get along with other people. They’re so stuck in their own little worlds that they’re not aware of how they affect the people around them — or they are and they just don’t care.
This guy definitely sounds like one of those people. Between his insulting behavior and arrogance, he definitely deserved to be walked out on. It’s a shame she couldn’t do that since she’s the one that drove him there.
Not His Ex-Girlfriend
There are too many people out there who straight-up lie about whether they’re in a relationship or not. They say they broke up with someone when they didn’t, or they just pretend to never have been in a relationship, period.
We’d like to think that this guy was just very lazy about changing his phone background, but it’s more likely that she wasn’t his ex-girlfriend, after all. He could have at least tried to hide his phone better.
Lies All Around
Most of us are smart enough to know how to be safe on the internet by now, but sometimes, you can still end up in a sticky situation with a sketchy person even while being cautious.
Everything this guy said was a lie, and we’re glad she got out of there. Having a stalker must be terrifying, though. Hopefully, she’s gone to the police and she’s safe and sound. That can become dangerous very quickly.
Waiting for Someone Like Her
The Joker and Harley Quinn may be a famous couple, but that doesn’t mean that they’re a healthy one. It’s quite the opposite, actually, and some of the Joker’s behaviors are truly terrifying.
How could this guy have possibly thought that mimicking a creepy villain while a guest is in the bathroom is a good idea? No one cares how good of an impression you can do — leave people alone in the bathroom!
A Series of Awkward Moments
Every relationship is different, which means that every couple is going to have their own timeline when it comes to things like saying “I love you” or getting engaged or married. But, most people can agree that saying “I love you” on a first date is too much.
This is actually really sad, because it sounds like this girl desperately wanted some attention and someone to care for her. That can’t be random people from the internet, though, especially if you lie to get there.
Let Girls Order
Many girls would like to know where exactly the idea that ordering your partner’s food for them is cute. Offering recommendations is one thing, but not even allowing them to choose their own food is controlling and creepy.
So, not only was this guy controlling — but he was also cheap and self-absorbed. That sounds like a winning combination! Everyone should appreciate having their own food spit on them during a date. Maybe it’s romantic in some cultures.
Technically Engaged But Not Married
There are a lot of different reasons that people get married, and some reasons are a bit more questionable than others. Although engaged isn’t quite married, it still means you’ve made a long-term commitment to another person.
This is so horrible. Suffering from a loss is bad enough, and it’s surprising that she’s being so cavalier about everything. “Technically engaged” is still engaged, so she shouldn’t be going on dates with anyone unless she actually breaks up with her partner.
Dine and Dash
Dine and dash is a terrible practice where people eat a meal or have drinks and then sneak out without paying their bill. It’s a great way to get yourself banned from a restaurant — or to even find yourself in more trouble than that.
Dining and dashing is something no one should ever do. It’s cruel to the restaurant. If you can’t afford to go out to eat, you shouldn’t be doing it at all. Sounds like he needed to dump and dash on that date.
Old Fashioned Values
Some people don’t seem to understand what a partner is looking for nowadays. It’s as if they get their ideas for dating and relationships from 1940s films with a controlling, demanding husband and a perfect, obedient wife.
It’s strange that some people seem to take pride in being controlling. That’s not a good trait to have, especially as a man talking to a potential partner. No one likes being controlled. At least he was honest about it, we suppose.
Attached at the Hip
Some people are lucky to have a best friend that they can do and talk about anything and everything with. But sometimes, these relationships can become too dependent.
This sounds like a seriously unhealthy case of codependency. Does the girl have such a lack of personality that she can’t survive on a date on her own and needs her friend there? Something weird is going on here.
Some Unsolicited Advice
Contrary to popular belief, we’re not all entitled to an opinion on any aspect of another person’s life. Unless someone is asking for help or advice, we should understand that everyone can make their own choices.
Welders, as well as other trade jobs, are very much in demand and always will be, so his reasoning was really weird. But more importantly, what made him think it’s okay to tell a woman he barely knows that she should change careers?
Can’t Stop Staring
It’s natural to want to look at people we find attractive. It’s just human nature. However, there’s a difference between looking and staring, and staring is usually crossing a line.
It’s hard to know whether you’re going to be attracted to someone until you’re out with them, but how rude do you have to be to check out other women while you’re sitting across from your date? Have some tact, man.
No Sales Pitches
Salespeople need to keep in mind that there’s a time and place for selling. No one in your life — including friends, family, or even the cashier at your local grocery store — wants to hear a sales pitch from you unless they explicitly ask for one.
She was either super passionate about her job, using the date as an excuse to try and gain a new customer, or so unaware that she somehow didn’t realize she was on a date. Whatever the reason, we would have walked out right then and there.
The New Anne Bonny
Human beings are very diverse and unique, so it’s not surprising that we’re going to meet people who have hobbies or beliefs that we find strange, like meeting someone who thinks she’s a pirate.
Maybe she was right. Perhaps reincarnation is real. Or it could be that she just really didn’t like who she was and wanted to be someone else. This would definitely be concerning to hear from someone you barely know, but it would also be pretty fun to date a pirate.
Fight With a Stranger
There’s a stereotype that women want a man who will “defend their honor” by getting into brawls with men who look at them the wrong way or make inappropriate comments.
This sounds like one of those scenes from a movie where a girl is trying to make her ex-boyfriend jealous by showing off a new guy in front of him and trying to make them fight each other. It’s good that neither of them took the bait.
Can’t Change Her Mind
We all have preferences when it comes to food. There are vegetarians, vegans, pescatarians, those who don’t eat carbs, and those who despise any type of seafood. You’d think a first date would make an effort to accommodate preferences, but apparently, that’s not always the case.
You’ve got to be very full of yourself to intentionally go for the one kind of food your date said they didn’t want. What if she didn’t like sushi because she was allergic to one of the ingredients?
A Missed Opportunity
When you go on a lot of dates, you tend to get tired of basic dates like dinner and a movie. It becomes repetitive, and there are only so many movies you can see. That’s why unique dates are always welcome.
He really messed up here. He could have used it as an opportunity to teach her some things about skateboarding, and make it a really unique and fun experience. Instead, he made her sit there bored for hours and ruined his chances of a second date.
Worst Lunch Date
Let us give you some advice — if you ask someone out, put in some effort. Don’t just bring them along to what you do every day, and definitely don’t spend the whole time talking about yourself or your exes.
He must have been lonely and just wanted some company while he missed his ex, because there’s no way that he thought that was a good date. It must have been hard for the OP to have gotten so excited over what turned out to be a really lousy experience.
The Sandal Sniffer
Certain types of behavior are expected on first dates. You’re expected to be polite and respectful, to spend time both listening and talking about yourself, and exert a certain level of self-control if you have some odd habits.
Maybe he was just checking to make sure she didn’t have smelly feet! That’s what we tell ourselves to try and explain why he would have done something like that without resorting to simply calling him a creep (which he totally is).
Hatred for Filler Words
Did you ever have that friend who had really strict parents? Parents who would gripe at you if you said “yeah” instead of “yes,” didn’t call them sir or ma’am, or criticized you for saying things like “uh,” “um,” and “like.” What if that happened on a date?
This guy would show up in the dictionary next to “pretentious jerkwad.” It’s never okay to criticize or belittle the way someone speaks, let alone do it on a first date. He’s lucky she just stared at him and didn’t throw her drink.
Chokers and Buns
We all have preferences when it comes to physical appearance. It’s natural to be attracted to certain things, but it’s not natural to belittle people who don’t fit your idea of attractive — especially if you’re on a date with them, like this guy!
You have to be a mean person to go out of your way to insult someone that you just met. He obviously knew exactly what he was doing, because there’s no way such a specific complaint came out of the blue.
The Pretend Boyfriend
When we plan a date with someone, the last thing we expect is for other people to be tagging along, unless it’s explicitly stated that it’s going to be some sort of group gathering.
This sounds like a case of the girl lying and telling her family she was dating someone, then tricking a stranger into pretending to be her boyfriend at a family gathering.
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Driving skills are something that we may not think about when looking for a partner, but they’re incredibly important considering you’re going to spend a lot of time in a vehicle with that person.
This says a lot about her character. If she didn’t leave a note because she doesn’t have insurance, then she shouldn’t be driving — and if she does have insurance but didn’t bother with a note just ’cause, it’s cruel to the person whose car she damaged.
No Cares at All
The thing that makes humans so great is that we have varied interests and hobbies. It gives us infinite things to connect with others over, but what happens if someone seems to not care about anything?
How does this person go through life without any hobbies or interests whatsoever? Maybe he was just lying because he was embarrassed by what he’s into, but it would have been better to say something! She must have been bored to tears.
She’s Got a Type
Military spouses have a hard life. They go long stints without seeing their partners, sometimes unable to even talk to them. Still, it’s no secret that people like a man in uniform.
Someone clearly has a type, and assuming this person is on social media, she likely already knew he had been in the military before agreeing to the date. She’s on the hunt for her next engagement ring.
Do Not Touch
Museums can be a really cool place to go on a date. They offer the opportunity to bond over a shared interest and have meaningful conversations and discussions. You just have to make sure the other person actually cares, like in this case.
It baffles us why someone would agree to a date at an art museum who hates art enough to intentionally go around the museum touching and potentially ruining the art. He obviously wasn’t taking the date seriously.
Some Guys Are Scumbags
High school sweethearts who last are impressive. A lot of personal changes and growth happen between finishing high school and our mid-20s, so for a relationship to survive that period of time is rare.
This is another case of a guy who’s bitter over a breakup parading a new girl in front of his ex to try and make her jealous. It doesn’t work in movies and doesn’t work in real life, either. She probably just rolled her eyes.
Isn’t it Ironic?
It’s hard to understand why people lie about their appearance when it comes to dating. The person is going to realize immediately that you lied once they see you, and it’s going to cause total distrust.
She clearly didn’t see the irony in making fun of everyone else’s appearance when she had lied about her own looks. Dates shouldn’t start with lies and negativity. It’s unhealthy. He did the right thing in taking her home early.
Staring at a Screen
Smartphones are an amazing tool, but they can also cause a lot of problems in our day-to-day lives and relationships. We get addicted to checking for new messages and notifications on our social media apps and end up ignoring those around us.
This girl must have been deep in a phone addiction to have spent nearly 25 minutes staring at her phone while on a date. Either that, or she really didn’t like the guy and just agreed to dinner to get some free food.
Ghosted Once Again
With the introduction of digital mediums like texting and WhatsApp came ghosting. Ghosting is the act of suddenly ceasing communication with someone, usually to the surprise and confusion of the other person.
This is so strange. Did she look out the window, see them, and decide she didn’t like them? She presumably already knew what they looked like thanks to social media, though, so that doesn’t seem plausible. At least he got to enjoy the beach, although he would have preferred a date.
Live Tweeting Gone Wrong
Live tweeting is one of the best sides of Twitter. Whether it’s an awards show, a sporting event, or just someone watching a film, reading people’s insights and jokes makes for great entertainment.
She was clearly just using the date as an excuse to live tweet to her followers and try to seem interesting, but she made herself look bad to both her date and her followers. We’re curious as to how he figured out she was live-tweeting about it, though.
Sound of Her Own Voice
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying talking. But there’s a love for talking, and then there’s loving the sound of your own voice, which means barreling over those around you who try to get a word in edgewise.
This girl definitely just loved the sound of her own voice, but the fact that she barely finished any of her sentences makes us wonder if she had some serious ADHD. Whatever it was, we hope that both of them had dates beyond this one that were a little more successful.
A True American
Some accents are harder to understand than others. One such accent that’s notoriously difficult to understand is the Scottish accent. It’s just something about the way they pronounce things that takes some getting used to.
Why would he even do this? Maybe he thought that the girl wouldn’t like Scottish people or wouldn’t understand him, but a fake accent would be hard to keep up throughout a long-term relationship! He would have been better off just being himself.
A Tad Too Young
Teenage girls have a bad habit of thinking it’s cool to date older men. Many can’t understand that any man who’s willing to date someone underage is problematic. So, some lie about their age in hopes of snagging an older guy.
While maybe he shouldn’t have sat through the movie with her, at least he was respectful to her and he made sure she got home safe without getting into a car alone with her. He handled the situation the best way he could.
Goodbye Kasey, Hello Timothy
We all handle stressful situations differently. Some people start cracking jokes, even if it’s inappropriate — and others have developed odder behaviors, like putting on accents or even pretending to be someone entirely different.
Take this OP’s experience, for instance. Perhaps this was his date’s coping mechanism for stressful situations? Whatever the case may be, we hope Timothy/Kasey finds someone that truly understands them.
Pungent Cheese and Fritos
Smelly feet are the worst. It’s such an unpleasant odor, and since it’s mostly preventable, it’s really frustrating to be the one who has to smell it. Most people do some extra hygiene prep before dates, but apparently not everyone.
He was wearing shoes and socks, so his feet or shoes must have been ridiculously filthy to not only smell — but for the smell to reach several feet away. Scrub your feet in the shower and keep your shoes clean, folks.
It’s All in the Stars
Whether it’s “real” or not, people who are into astrology are really into astrology. They dive deep, going way beyond simple horoscopes and compatibility. It’s fine when discussing it with someone equally as passionate, but it can be tedious to those who don’t care.
It’s hard to listen to a stranger tell you that your personality and career choices have nothing to do with your actual personal choices, but rather the stars and the moon and what time of year you were born.
No More Kardashians
Lots of us enjoy watching “trash” TV. Cheesy reality series like Keeping Up With the Kardashians, while not actually reality, can help us forget about our own problems for a while. But, not everyone is into these things.
If the person she was on a date with mentioned loving the show, then that’s one thing. Otherwise, it’s just gossiping about a bunch of celebrities that the date knows nothing about, which is really boring. Plus some people are just really sick of hearing about the Kardashians.
Two Dates at Once
Online dating usually leads to a lot of weird dates. Some people are just strange, or really bad at dating. But, the last thing you expect is for your date to bring another date to dinner.
So, this girl went on two dates at once? Well, we’ve got to praise her for her efficiency. Why spend multiple hours getting to know two different people when you could just do it at the same time and figure out which you like more?
Family Comes First
There’s nothing wrong with living with your parents as an adult, as long as you’re honest about it and you’re still making an effort to live your own life. But, lying about it at the start of a date is a bad sign.
To make matters worse, this dude decided that they’d eat dinner at home… and then left his date in the garage to eat by herself. We’re not entirely sure why this OP decided to stick the date out but we do know one thing for sure — she has much more patience than we do.
Definitely 35 Years Old
Many older single people still want to date and have romantic relationships, but it can be challenging for them. In a society so obsessed with youth, a lot of people focus on finding younger partners.
You can’t start a relationship with lies. A lot of people don’t care about age that much, but lying and saying you’re at least 30 years younger than you are isn’t going to instill trust in anyone. Dating is hard for older women, but lying isn’t the answer.
Who doesn’t like a good storytime? We can bet that you’re a big fan of Disney Parks, too! Wondering how these two go together? Well, we have put together some of the most outrageous stories coming straight from former employees of the Disney amusement parks. These stories will make you laugh, gasp in awe, and cringe with disgust.
Sometimes, Disney cast and crew can be more than your average entertainers. The OP was sitting with a group of men in the area that Mickey and Minnie get dressed. The pair came outside after putting on their costumes when one of the guys started catcalling Minnie.
Luckily, our Mickey came to the rescue. He threatened the dude in a way that’s sure to scare him to the point that he wouldn’t dare to do such a thing again!
The book of bad people isn’t the place you want to end up in! Some time ago, the cast member who played Mickey was one of the least liked people on the team of staff. When the parade had started, Mickey suddenly fell and the entire band marched past him.
Our Mickey was struggling so much to catch up and take the lead again. The audience couldn’t help but have a good laugh at the entire scene. Perhaps, this is one of the rare occasions where Mickey wasn’t the favorite one.
This one happened on Space Mountain where an abandoned bag was left without any supervision. As per the regular security measures go, the authority brought their police dog. Pluto sniffed the bag and sat on the ground, which indicated that there must be something wrong with the bag.
It turned out that Pluto was waiting for a treat because the bag was actually full of carne asada burritos. Poor Pluto doesn’t even have any idea what chaos he had caused just for an innocent treat!
Cruise and Cruz
Imagine meeting Tom Cruise and his then-girlfriend, actress Penelope Cruz, during your work shift! They had once come to visit the park along with Cruz’s family. There was a lot of miscommunication among them, though, leading to mega chaos.
The Cruz family and the escorts equally flipped out! Guess what, though? OP only cherishes the fact that her hand had brushed against Cruise’s hand amidst all this drama! We can’t lie — we wouldn’t wash our hands either after that encounter. It’s Tom Cruise, after all!
When a group of Japanese teens had come to visit Disneyland, they began body-shaming the Americans in their native language. The OP is fluent in Japanese, but he kept quiet — until another staff member who also speaks Japanese had to break it to the tourists that most Americans know Japanese.
This immediately horrified the teens to the point that they froze up, looked around at all the dirty stares, and basically ran away. That’ll teach them!
Not for Sale!
Who doesn’t like getting fancy souvenirs from the Happiest Place on Earth? Well, the problem is, some people go overboard to get these — especially when it comes to the pins!
Once a staff member had witnessed a woman running off with a whole set of pins that were put on display in the Haunted Mansion. They clearly weren’t for sale! That didn’t stop her, though.
The pin obsession is apparently a real thing when it comes to Disney souvenirs. Some people cross the line and go to extreme lengths just to get their hands on a Disney pin.
In fact, the whole thing has gotten so out of hand that some staff members — including this poster’s boyfriend — have quit their job. With that, we can only assume the pin traders that the poster mentioned must be far too intense to deal with. And to think that this is all for a pin…
Kids can go overboard sometimes, but this one takes the cake for the funniest kid-to-cast interaction. This one was told by an ex-cast member. When OP was at the Cast Members’ bank, the door to the room suddenly slammed open.
The dude that played Donald came in and threw his costume head on the floor with rage. Apparently, a kid had inappropriately kicked him. Looking at a four-foot-six-inch tall actor yelling while wearing half a Donald Duck costume was probably one of the funniest things this poster has and will ever experience.
The Fountain of Misfortune
This is from one of the cast members who played the Queen of Hearts at that time. There was a small fountain near the Dumbo ride where everyone used to make a wish and throw some coins. Once the OP was doing his job and saw the Tweedles brewing mischief with the kids as usual.
One of them decided to climb onto the fountain and retrieve some coins for himself. Well, karma struck yet again when this conniving Tweedle ended up falling into the fountain. Naturally, everyone got a good laugh at the sight of this dude flopping around with his feet in the air.
Code Three Alert!
Some people have so much nerve. Take this woman, for instance. She threw a full-on tantrum all because the lifeguard was simply doing his job and following safety procedures. The signs clearly stated that unattended children under 12 were not allowed.
Despite this, mommy dearest here insisted that her seven-year-old child could use the pool. So, ultimately, the staff member was forced to call a Code Three alert, which also meant that the pool full of 200 guests had to evacuate.
The security measures in parks always treat unattended objects as a potential threat. So, once when a homeless guy had thrown something into a bush, everyone thought it was an explosive.
When the investigation began, a kid came over to the poster and handed the object to the OP, not knowing it was under investigation. All good, though, because it ended up being a stuffed animal.
Lost Little Guest
Amusement parks are an infamous place for people to lose track of their small children. This story comes from an ex-staff member who had to face this kind of situation when a two-year-old toddler wandered into her area.
It took her parents a good 20 minutes to even realize that they had lost her. She was so young that she couldn’t even speak yet. Luckily, though, the OP here knew exactly how to deal with the situation and ended up saving the day!
Code Brown Catastrophe
Code brown is used by Disneyland’s employees to indicate human waste. According to this story, a kid ended up doing his thing in the pool and a lifeguard was trying to communicate via the code.
Unfortunately, the radio frequencies were overlapping with the nearby Wal-Mart over and over again. Coincidentally, they use the code brown to communicate an exterior threat. So, ultimately the whole store had to shut down because of this miscommunication. Sheesh!
Imagine having a job where you get to meet celebrities every now and then! This incident happened with the OP’s sister who used to work on Main Street, in Disneyland.
One day, NBA superstar Kobe Bryant had come asking if she knew who he was and if she could help him out. She was totally mindblown and starstruck, to say the least. We can’t blame her, though, as we would have been stunned too!
A while back, this poster worked a ride in Animal Kingdom. One day, he’s doing his job when he suddenly notices a giant snake slither its way out of the plants and bushes. Not phased by anything in its line of vision — including strollers and bags — the snake weaved through a line of about 200 people!
Then, it casually slipped into a different wooded area. Fortunately, no one seemed to have noticed this except the ex-staff member. What would you do if you were in his place? Well, we would have flipped out for sure.
Not Your Average Family Dinner!
When this ex-employee was working in the kitchen of Cinderella’s castle, a family of four members had come for a nice dinner. A few minutes into the meal, the husband began to draw everyone’s attention by tapping on his glass to make a toast.
Then, he announced that his wife of 15 years had been having an affair. This shocking moment had made the other guests go silent. The man exited the restaurant with his kids, leaving his wife behind.
Epcot International Festival is an amazing event to have fun with friends and family. However, whenever you’re dealing with someone that’s had too much to drink, the fun starts to sour.
One time, a Naval Academy graduate with his name on the dean’s list had started invading the backstage office at Epcot. What a great way to ruin the night! However, the cast and crew had managed the situation so well that the front stage guests had no idea what was taking place behind the scenes.
This super awkward story comes from an ex-staff member who used to work the attractions and rides in Tomorrowland. Now, aside from the fact that our jaws completely dropped after reading about this dude’s experience, we’re honestly in awe that this woman thought it was remotely okay to smuggle her baby onto a rollercoaster.
Then again, we guess that’s why she was blacklisted from Disney World in Orlando, Florida. We wonder if her ban only applies to that park, or all the Disney parks around the world. In any case, we can only hope that taught her a lesson!
This story features an overly jealous and possessive boyfriend/husband, who punched our sweet Piglet in the stomach when he was only trying to kiss the lady on her hand!
Call us crazy but we think that’s a little extreme, especially considering the fact that the man playing Piglet ended up with a set of fractured ribs. No wonder why this particularly insecure boyfriend was banned from Disney for life…
Discovered in the Discovery Island
Imagine getting dragged out of a resort by the police, all while trying to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Something like this had happened to a man who decided to go camping in an abandoned area of the park.
Unfortunately, the policemen caught him on the island before he could execute this “well-thought-out” plan. What we’re left wondering is if he was banned from the parks, or just scolded.
Trip to the ‘Trippyland
Disney may be the Happiest Place on Earth, but that doesn’t mean it’s always smooth sailing for the staff members. How would you handle this scenario? A grown man takes a hallucinogenic substance and shortly after, was reported missing after he fell into a lake and didn’t resurface.
After one whole day, the man was finally found a mile away in his birthday suit. We can only imagine what it must have been like for him to wake up in the middle of a Disneyland park with no memory of how he got there. And his poor girlfriend!
Debris at Disneyland
Wow — this next post genuinely surprised us! From the sounds of it, people have the tendency to get lost in the magic of Disney parks and they end up crossing too many lines. A few years back, a cast/staff member had reported that he spotted a guest pouring a powdery substance into the water.
It turns out that the powdery substance was actually the ashes of this person’s late relative. And while we understand the sentiment behind the gesture, she should have probably gotten permission first.
Here, in this story, we return to Orlando, Florida. During the EPCOT Annual International Festival, some people get so caught up in drinking that they literally lose their sanity. Once, a 23-year-old intoxicated man decided that he wanted to not only trespass to go backstage, but also steal a cargo work cart in the process.
From the sounds of it, this kid just wasn’t taking no for an answer and even beat up three different people — including a female employee — along the way. Let’s just hope he was banned for life.
Photo With Pluto
People tend to forget that the cast members are human, too — and with that, they deserve and need to take breaks. This story involves a whole family that simply disregarded this. They wanted a picture with Pluto so badly that they pushed the actor into a nearby fountain when she told them that she was going on her break.
What’s worse, the actress ended up with a broken limb. While the kids may not realize or understand that cast members deserve breaks throughout the day, there’s no excuse for the parents; they’re full-grown adults.
Animal Kingdom can be full of surprises! However, what if a rhino puts a damper on the experience? In this story, around 30 guests were on a tour when they stumbled upon a huge rhinoceros, who decided to take a nap in the middle of the street during a torrential downpour.
Disneyland employees are trained to entertain their guests no matter what. So, the dedicated driver had to churn out everything he knew about animals to keep the guests distracted. We have to give it to him for the effort!
Nice Little Company
Now, this story could go either way. It’s quite sweet but also kind of heartbreaking. Back in the ’80s, a sweeper working in the Tomorrowland park noticed that a lady near the monorail station would initiate conversations with lonely men before heading off with them on a monorail ride. The loop continued with several men.
While it’s quite endearing that the lady was probably trying to just comfort these people, we also find it a wee bit sad that she was alone in the first place…
A Pirate’s Life for Me
As we’ve already mentioned, Disney is a magical place — whether you’re in California, Florida, or France! Sometimes, though, the people who visit aren’t quite as enchanting. Here, we have another incident in which a guest was caught dumping her husband’s ashes into the water during the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
And although we completely understand that many people have an attachment to Disney, we think that this kind of gesture is just a tad bit overboard (no pun intended). After all, there are children around and why would you want to taint their memories or experiences?
No Dirty Deeds
If you’ve ever wanted to work in security, but you’re also a huge Disney fan, then we have just the job for you! It turns out that Disney employees also have to work security — sometimes just to police teenagers.
As many private parties are hosted at the venue, many high schoolers take advantage of the situation and do some dirty deeds. In these cases, you as a staff member have to ensure that no teenager gets down to any funny business. Fun job!
Taking the Head Off
Yes, working around Disney’s most iconic characters would be the chance of a lifetime. But, if you were a huge fan of the characters as a child, you may find it disarming to see these “characters” take their heads off at the end of the day. We all know that these costumes are worn by real-life human beings, but that doesn’t mean we want to see it!
A former employee had his mind blown when he first saw the cast member playing Goofy take his costume off. Of course, he knew that there was an actual human inside the costume, but actually witnessing it with his own eyes for the first time was quite shocking!
Puked Out Pasta
Little children can be super cute — until you have to clean up their mess. This story comes from an ex-staff member who had seen a kid eating a ton of pasta with marinara. Later, the kid ended up getting sick right in front of the entrance to Big Thunder Mountain.
Just imagine having to work a job like this. We really do give the staff members on this list a lot of credit for dealing with all the drama that comes with working for Disney!
Dumped Like Trash
Oh goodness. Here’s yet another story about someone getting sick. This time, though, it involves a grown man — which makes matters worse. One guest started to feel a bit queasy as he was entering the EPCOT station, so he made a staff member aware of the situation.
That employee then took the lid off a trash can for easier access just in case the man needed to vomit. Instead, though, he completely disrobed and proceeded to sit on top of the trash can to go number two. Couldn’t he have at least found a bathroom to do that in?
Here we have yet another story about a mother attempting to smuggle her baby onto a rollercoaster. Has everyone gone completely insane?! We just can’t wrap our heads around the fact that people actually do this.
This mother pretended to be pregnant when she was really just carrying her infant child onto a ride with her. Later, the staff started hearing screams coming from her stomach, which explained everything. Pregnant or not — that’s definitely questionable parenting.
As kids, we all enjoyed dressing up as our favorite princess or superhero. Well, someone actually decided to take their childhood fascination and fantasy to the next level. A fully grown woman who was completely intoxicated dressed up as Snow White.
She then walked around the parks pretending to be the character by signing autographs and taking photos with people. Naturally, this caused a lot of commotion and the lady was ultimately escorted out of the parks. Where was the real Snow White in all of this?
‘Waiting’ Isn’t in the Dictionary
What lengths would you go to in order to make it to your favorite party — or in this case, meet and greet? This lady transformed into the real-life Tarzan to crash some other family’s meet and greet.
She was so inspired by the Tarzan character that she decided to climb a tree and swing into the middle of the crowd. We guess she isn’t very fond of waiting in line…
Yellow Yellow, Dirty Fellow
A woman at Disneyland was literally carrying around a jug for her kid to pee in, rather than doing the normal thing by taking bathroom breaks. We still have no idea why. The policies are very strict against this kind of action.
So, she pretended to take it back to the car and hide it. However, we guess karma was waiting to hit back! The pee in the jug got all over her. Ugh!
Leaving a Mark Behind
If the previous stories failed to make you cringe in disgust, then we’ve got the perfect one for you! Imagine that you’re standing in line when suddenly, you notice human feces lying right in front of you.
Well, something similar had happened at Disneyland’s Autopia. Someone had done the deed on the exit ramp and before other people could notice, they began tracking it all over the park. Looks like someone had gone on a mission to leave his mark everywhere he went.
Magic Kingdom Madness
Magic Kingdom is definitely full of wonders, if not literal magic. This staff member can tell you why. He had once witnessed a guy roaming around half-naked — but that’s not even the craziest part!
When he turned around, the employee noticed an entire map of Magic Kingdom tattooed on the man’s back. We guess he loves Magic Kingdom a bit more than the rest of us. Then again, to each their own, right?
Johnny Depp at the Basement
Imagine looking up to see Jack Sparrow standing right in front of you. Sounds pretty generic, right? After all, the cast members often dress as these characters. What if we told you, though, that this wasn’t a fake Jack Sparrow but rather the real deal!
That’s right — Johnny Depp walked into this guy’s souvenir shop at two in the morning, still wearing sunglasses. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Big Man With a Big Mood!
In this story, there were about 26 people on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. This entire boat ride came to a halt when a large man slid to the left side of the boat.
The boat then tilted to the left and ended up getting stuck. Obviously, the easiest fix to the problem was having the man move towards the middle of the boat instead.
Little Side Business
A little side business doesn’t hurt anyone — and this is especially great if you can make some cash by allowing people to have a good time. According to this post, it’s not uncommon for Disney employees to sell discounted tickets as a side hustle.
This OP’s ex-boyfriend made quite a decent amount of money by doing this. Even though it’s a little shady, if it gives some kids the chance to explore the land of magic, is it really the worst thing in the world?
Snow White With a Dark Destiny
The story of Snow White had a dark turnaround, followed by love and happiness. However, her story was just that — a story. You wouldn’t expect anyone to give you an actual poisonous apple, right? Think again!
A cast member playing Snow White received an apple from a guest. Well, it turns out that the fruit had tiny pinprick holes in it, meaning that it had actually been poisoned. Why would anyone think to do this?!
The Disney parks will apparently give you the chance to encounter some of the worst parents ever. In this story, a guy forgets to bring tickets to Disneyland after arriving at the gate.
If that wasn’t bad enough, get this — he then leaves his children in front of the gate and goes back home to get the tickets. Our question is, who in their right mind would leave their children unattended for even a few minutes? This guy was gone for a whole hour!
The ‘70s were a magical time, especially for this person who encountered the majestic MJ in the magical world of Disney World. She came across The Jackson Five, as well as some other people in the group.
Even though most of us probably won’t be able to completely relate to her experience, we admit that we’re super jealous. If only we could witness the legend that was the “King of Pop” — and during his prime!
Goofy and a Goofy Little Guest
Aside from the beloved character Goofy, there’s a good chance that you’ll come across some pretty goofy people when visiting one of the Disney parks. Usually, guests love to hug Goofy and take pictures with him whenever they can, but this little guest wanted to crack a joke instead.
In this story, a little boy ran over to Goofy and pointed at his face, exclaiming, “That’s your face!” He then proceeded to do the same thing with his shirt and, at last, his private parts. We’re guessing that this boy is learning about the human body at school!
What is with Disney guests and their bodily functions?! Perhaps it’s all the magic and excitement that comes with visiting the parks. Still, we can’t help but feel like this particular incident is absolutely bonkers.
One of the guests pooped while waiting in line to ride the Tower of Terror in Orlando. The worst part of it all is the fact that he relieved himself in the section that cast members walk through. Some people might relate to the feeling of not being able to hold it in, but yikes!
