Phone call I got today. "Mother-in-law gets her check Oct. 3rd. Wife and I want to take our son to your haunt and zombie shoot for his fifth birthday. How much for the 3 of us to do that?" I say we do not recommend anyone under 12 on haunted trail; but for 5 year old recommend doing the maze and maybe laser tag together. "Ok; I'll have mother-in-law take the 5 year old through maze while wife and I go through haunt." Then I find out she uses a walker or wheel chair.

I'm reading between the lines during conversation and offer up a cheaper alternative. Money is tight but making 5 year old b-day special seems to be important. But when I see he is willing to ditch the kid off on granda who is handicapped so HE can go through haunt....well I better not finish my thoughts here in public forum.

My personal favorites are the ones that ask questions that are clearly stated on the website as well as on the voicemail \ auto attendant system (as in, the same voicemail system they're using to leave me that very message). It only gets oh-so-much better when they have a blocked phone number and don't leave their number during the message. It makes it incredibly difficult to call back. THEN they'll call 2 days later and complain that we never called back. /sigh.
