Whip Smart

Story Sent in by John:

I thought it would be fun to visit an amusement park with Rita. We climbed onto a whip ride and before it moved, Rita looked around everywhere. She asked me, "Where are the seat belts?"

I replied, "There are no seat belts. You just hold on."

She looked at me like I was insane. "No seat belts? How has this place not had a lawsuit yet?"

I said, "I guess people are just instinctively smart enough to hold on and not be thrown off."

"I'm not," she actually said. Then the ride began. I had a glorious time but Rita seemed intent on having a lousy time. When it ended she stumbled off and made like she was going to vomit. She didn't vomit but she did gasp, "I'm gonna sue, I'm gonna sue, I'm gonna sue."

"Who are you going to sue?" I asked her.

"The park. And you."

I didn't go out with Rita again. Nor was there ever a suit filed, as far as I know.

    In her defense, some of those rides should really come with seat belts. For example...this ride....FUCK THIS RIDE. The only safety measure is a metal bar that sits about 12" above my knees?! WTF
