Jean in Newcastle Posted February 2, 2012 Share Posted February 2, 2012 (edited) The kids and I went swimming tonight. There are signs posted all around the pool with the rules. There was a woman in the pool with her toddler. She got a kickboard for the toddler - a no-no in the family pool. (BTW - I understand how someone could bring one in by mistake but not what happened next.) The teen life guard came over and nicely told her that kickboards are not allowed in this pool but the lap pool only. She sat there arguing with him. The head life guard came over to explain to her why she could not have it in the pool. She pretended not to understand. I finally got fed up and told her "You may not have this in the pool. Period." She gave me a dirty look but all of a sudden understood and obeyed the rule. Not ten minutes later, she circumvents the lifeguard at the slide at the deep end by going behind him where he couldn't see her, grabs a necklace showing swim proficiency, puts it on her toddler and sends him down the slide. The poor baby couldn't swim and had to be pulled out by the lifeguard. It took 4 lifeguards to get her to get her baby and get out of the pool. :banghead: Edited February 2, 2012 by Jean in Newcastle Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
