    I'm a actor myself. The last 5 years of watching customers comming throught the haunted house I have seen some stuff that just irks me.

    1) I'll sue you if you touch me
    2) How much do you get paid
    3)Stand there with a cell phone and want to check messages.
    4) Yell at/in the actors face or ear
    5) marriage proposals- sometimes not too bad.

    You see where I'm going with this. Where do these idiots come from.

    Yeah, Reaper.

    I talk to my crew members all the time and they can come up with some lulus that customers have laid on them. No respect at all. The actors job is a difficult one. Of this I know.

    Yeah, we had a couple of people last night come through that were like that. It drives me crazy. I guess you just have to deal with it. Because usually after a couple of those groups, you get a really good group that is there to be scared and not ruin everyone's time.

    As soon as the room was full a young female voice hollers out:"I'm suing if anyone does anything to me!"
    I turned up the lights looked her in the eye and said, "The door is right there, you may leave right now if that is your attitude."
    She calmed down very quickly and reversed herself quietly.
    I guess I'm a little more sensitive to this sort of BS because I am not treating people here with any aggressiveness or in-the-face nastiness.
    After meeting me in the first room and they see me doing all or most of their tour myself I like to think a certain amount of respect, me for them as shown by my behavior therefore they should treat me the same.
    This actually is what happens here the majority of the time and this is how I want it to be, it eliminates so many potential problems before they even get a toehold.
    Of course there are always some customers who forget this or don't notice it or forget where they are and act aggressive and overtly stupid to me, but they do this mostly towards my seasonal helpers who they probably do not feel as comfortable with.
    The customers talking between themselves as I am trying to entertain them is very distracting and doesn't set well with the rest of the paying customers after awhile but young girls do this (I think?) to create an artificial mental place for them to hide within whereas their present haunted surroundings have them too scared, in other words they don't want to be here confronted with the potential fears, so they stare into their friend's eyes and re-hash study hall and a note a boy sent to them, ex cetra loud enough for most of us to hear.
    I have married two women who met me coming through my haunted house........scary, huh?
    I guess that I'll do almost anything to try to scare somebody?

    one time some kid said to me "if you touch me I'll sue you" I said,"who's sue? Your big fat mother!" The kid never said another word while I was doing my room.

    If he said he was going to "Sue" you, this could have meant a secks-change operation for you!
    Johnny cash sang it, "A Boy Named Sue!"
    Next time just tell them that your lawyer is I.M. Satan Jr. and their lawyer doesn't stand a chance in heL.

    I love that line I will have to use that ... See I don't understand how they know we are just acting and we are just like them but they still get so scared .. the ones I hate are the drunks that get scared and then get mad that my crew scared them and then go after my actors I had one get her knee broke and was tossed out of her scare box and another get her arm broke... I mean come on I got told when I first started working in haunted houses if a drunk comes in and you can't scare them do something to make them laugh they will laugh through the rest of the house.

    One time a smallish man snuck into the house all by himself and was wandering around under the influence of some animal traquilizers.
    He pulled a nailed shut door open with his bare hands! The nails were very long and nailed directly into a 2 by 4 frame.
    Lucky for me I had the absolutely right employee right there who talked to him, calmed him down and escourted him out.
    What do I mean by "the absolutely right employee"? He is a very calm, intelligent man who later (about a year later) became a Minister, then a missionary in India, later China, he and his whole family, Wife, two kids.
    My son who has worked as a security guard in a hospital for 14 years has told me it sometimes takes a room full of Policemen to subdue one scrawny little guy who happens to be on animal tranqs!
    Be so carefull out there!
    (It seems like the little guys are always the punchers too!?)
