    We will lie to your family.

    1. You've gotten so used to pointing with two fingers that you even do it when you're not working.

    2. You can't help but roll your eyes after every fake smile you give to a guest.

    3. You've expertly mastered the "I'm cleaning up vomit, but it really doesn't smell that bad" face.

    4. You've created special hand signals with your co-workers so you can make fun of guests behind their backs.

    5. Your favorite part of every morning shift is having some quality time with the attraction before the park opens.

    6. You're constantly making up lies to tell guests about why your attraction isn't working because you honestly never know why.

    7. You have the music from your venue stuck in your head almost every night as you try to fall asleep.

    Everything in the park is under video surveillance, so if you think we're not watching...we defintely are.

    9. You have no sympathy for guests when they put their safety at risk to take ridiculous photos on your ride.

    10. You've made a rude guest wait even longer for the next ride because they never stopped complaining.

    11. You've definitely looked away when a guest dropped their food so you could avoid being the one to accommodate them.

    12. You have permanent tire marks on your shoes thanks to electric scooters.

    14. You've prayed for it to rain before a shift so the park would be empty and no guests would bother you.

    15. You've come into work hoping your attraction breaks down so you can get paid to do nothing all day.

    16. You feel like a celebrity when guests take pictures of you.
