Everyone has their pet peeves, and line cutting is usually at the top of the list.
Sure, it hurts a bit when you’re at a grocery store, but it really stings at amusement parks, which are notorious for having hours-long lines in the dead of summer.
One family was visiting a Six Flag park, which is the granddaddy of long line scenarios because the rides are so worth it. When you’re waiting, you know you’re in for the ride of your life—while you can be patient, cutting is not something that’s often tolerated.
One Redditor tells the story of how his dad got the ultimate revenge on an inconsiderate family. The incident happened on one of those hot summer days.
He and his family expected to wait in line for a while—as we said, the ride was well worth the wait, and it was one in which his dad could actually participate.
While they chatted and waited, along comes another family that pays them no mind and gets right in front of them.
They waited for the blowback from their dad, but none came.
They were about to learn revenge really is a dish that is best served cold.
The line moved along; the tension mounted for the ride and what would happen to this unsuspecting family of cutters.
Dad meted out his revenge in the best way possible—the family was sent to the very back of the line.
Ouch! Most readers gave that dad the highest praise.
One was a theme park worker who hated dealing with these types of people.
Others wondered why they believed his dad in the first place, but figured it was how he delivered the news.
