Default Six Flags Is...

...what you wish the world could be.

Anybody remember that promotion?

Seeing these pictures takes me back to something that happened my last season I worked at 'Gate. We all "processed in" that spring and went up to the ol' gate for orientation. A bunch of kids were there and I remember thinking, "This is kind of a rag-tag group compared to previous years." I was an "assistand foreman" (big whoo!) at the time and was hanging out in the back room with the foreman when an unnamed supervisor came back and asked to talk the the foreman in private. The next day, about a third of the "new hires" were missing.

I found out later that the supervisor found some of the new recruits to be, uh, shall we say, "Not Front Gate Material (NFGM)," meaning their appearance did not represent the park well. (NSFM, or "Not Six Flags Material") is discussed elsewhere.

To this day, I'm thankful I made the first cut. Don't know what it would have done to my self esteem to have been sent off to Sensational Sense Machine. Oh wait...I DID get sent of to Sensational Sense Machine! Doh!!

I don't know where the "others" went.

Brave new world, indeed.

AARP is sponsoring an "anti-taunting" bill in Congress directed at the young whippersnappers of the world...
