What are some of the things that happen at parks that just really make you angry? Personally, I cannot stand it when people who are not disabled use the Handicap access line. I am fine with the system until I see a group of kids come up the ramp, with one in a wheelchair. It is all good until the kid in the wheelchair jumps up and runs to the coaster car. Then, when they get back, a different kid gets into the wheelchair. Not only is this unfair to those of us who waited in line, but it also makes people ridicule and harass those who are actually disabled. I realize that parks really have no way to regulate this, but it just really gets under my skin.
So, what things that happpen at parks really get on your nerves?
P.S. Just in case, this was in no way an attack on any disabled person or assistance system. It is just an attack on those who abuse these systems.

I really hate it when you've been waiting in line for a long time and a bunch ofpople start coming through the line saying, excuse me excuse me, and they cut everyone I really hate that!!!
Also I hate it when ride op's go really slow and they do is go really slow checking seatbelts or other things.

Without the chaindog, you'd never get up the lifthill...
I also don't care for those that take advantage of a wheel chair policy. Once I got a group kicked out of a park for faking it. They would never have gotten kicked out if they hadn't asked for the back seat on Vortex after they had just asked for the back seat on The Beast......both of which I was waiting for the back seat also. Funny thing is, they admitted it once the ride operator asked about it.
Another thing I can't stand is basketballs. Personally, I think they should be deflated so they can't be bounced around a park. I have seen to stray basketballs knock onto a table and spill drinks on folks.
Folks who do nothing about whinning about how boring a ride is while standing in line for it also get on my nerves at times. I just don't understand why someone would want to get on a ride they dislike so much when they have every option not to ride it.
The worst thing though IMO is line jumpers. I can't stand them and usually try to stop them. I will admit that a few times it has gotten pretty ugly (as Rideman can verify), but I still think it was worth trying to at least stop them regardless if they get by. Usually they end up getting on the ride all ticked off and can't enjoy it. .
Line jumpers I think are almost all of our top pet peeves. I can't stand the people that do that. Chaindog's method works best, but so does standing two people shoulder to shoulder, and the more groups of two, the better. Usually if you can stop a person, and start yelling at them, people will at least start giving the jumper dirty looks... you know, nobody wants to wait a minute longer... however, if lots of people jump, it can become considerably more than a minute.
Another one of my peeves are people who shake handrails... Whats up with that?

Gotta love it when the 2 most unattractive people in the park are licking eachother for the whole duration of your wait right in front of you. the whole "Get a room" suggestion has gotten pretty cliche, unfortunately.
And on a more serious note I hate it how six flags never gives my park a chance! I just emailed them and told them they needed to build a B&M because those rock! and how if they knew what was good for them they would build one that was 300 feet tall and was superintense and had 13 loops because that would be awsome and B&M could do it. And I also emailed them to see if any of our coasters are getting lapbars this season and my friend just emailed themn asking that, too, and my other friend, and my other friend, and we all got the same answer! That is so lame!!!11

Line jumpers, people who smoke ( I have even seen ACE'rs at SFWoA smoke in line at BKF once :( ) and people who write grafitti on walls. Thats all I can think of now.
Have you ever considered that maybe it's not the park that's the problem, but YOU?
I hate the basketball ghetto guys they piss me off.
I am also jacked and do not let anyone cut me in line.
I agree 100% with all of these.
Here's my addition: When you are walking down the midway holding hands with your significant other, or even just walking beside a friend, and some huge group decides to walk right between you. Can't you go around?
