    I love the people who do the whole "I'll sue!" I've escorted these people right out the door. I had a lady one night catch me in a bad mood. (Got kicked, and groped many times that night) I came out of the act and hauled her right out a access door. Her and her friends (all minors) were caught drinking anyways. I've been kicked,groped, grabbed, punched, and had my picture taken. My other pet peeve is smokers. I'm a smoker but I'm smart enough not to light up in a shed full of dry hay. They get all pissed off when you tell them to put it out.

    To put out their cigerettes, just always carry a loaded squirt gun.
    Have a warning sign explaining what wet thing will happen to them if they insist upon smoking.
    I stil like the Steve Martin line when someones asks:"Do you mind if I smoke?"
    "Not if you don't mind if I fart!"

    Post a sign: "Smokers will be assumed to be on fire and will have copious amounts of water dumped on them".

    My biggest peeve is people that spit in my face. Totally uncalled for and unsanitary.

    My peeve with other actors is when they come out of their scene to mess up mine. This was an on-going problem this year, even when they put different guys in the scene before mine. Very frustrating.

    I have been running my house nearly alone for the majority of the year until September, so I have had ample opportunities to figure out what works best here, I am open to improvision by my hired seasonal help...but if their way doesn't work, then I would Really like them to do it My Way....
    One guy was doing what I told him to do except he would make this "Argh!" sound as he did what I told him to do, which immeadiately alerts the customer:"There's some idiot about to try to scare me who just went "Argh!" That ended the possibilty of any scare for 99 out of 100 people.
    Why do I build and figure stuff out if someone else is going to totally ruin it? Somebody I am paying money?
    Very frustrating.

    This is exactly how I would feel if I were the owner. Both places I've worked for didn't bother to give enough explaination to the actors about rules and/or how to work the scene. Mark that as my pet peeve for owners.

    "Push this button."
    "OK."
    "Then stick your hand in here and wiggle it."
    "OK."

    Later: "Why didn't you push the button?"
    "Duh?'
    "Why didn't you wiggle that thing with your hand?"
    "DUH?"

    How about the actors that no matter how many times you tell them not to scare on stairs, they just cant figure it out. I realize that some people figure this out at different rates of speed than others, so I try and be patient and paint a not-so-pretty picture of what terrible thing could happen if you frighten a person on a stair case and they loose their balance and........well you know......fall down.....un heard of, I know.

    We also had some people this year that really liked to get sarcastic about sitting on the bench seat in my room in our haunt. Ya see we tell people before they enter the building that they can not touch any of the props. So when they entered the room and they wouldnt sit down on their own, I had to tell them to sit down. This one girl very sarcastically said,"Ahh, we are'nt supossed to touch the props". Being Im soooo witty and great with the come backs, I said " You can touch this one". That could be taken SOOOOO wrong.. HA

    That just because someone is the well-dressed grandfather of the people in a group that he won't unscrew the light bulb at the top of the stairs when the stairway is full of people.

    I also could not believe it when I found him tossing my cat, Mr. Tuxedo, down a crawlspace like he was a stuffed toy.

    I guess I was at fault because these things happened when I was very new at all of this.
    I "assumed" and was proven wrong.
    I made a razor cage around the light bulb ("Go ahead, just make a quick grab for that bulb now!")
