Today I am at a pool at a resort in Hawaii. They have a slide that empties in another pool below. This dad of 3 boys would go up to the slide, Dad would go to the back while they slid down and walked back from the other pool. Basically, holding spots and letting his kids cut and not have to wait in the long line. He did it over and over again. Others were talking about him too.
Kids have things so immediate now and don't wait as it is to let your kids cut over and over is terrible and 3 kids even.

Would I do that? Heck no.  I was at a water slide a few years ago in Sesame Place and a woman kept trying to cut in front of people with her child.  It seemed like she had family sporadically placed throughout the lines.  She got to us and asked to get by (we'd have had to move to the side to allow her to pass where we were) and we said "Sorry, the line starts back there."  She said her husband was up ahead and was quite angry that we wouldn't let her cut.  We did say he was welcome to come behind us from up where he was to join them but she didn't like that either LOL.

No way. I could understand in a restaurant or bank or something; moving to get to your partner/family, or even in a movie theatre line, but in a water park, no way

That would have irritated me. I would not have done that to other people....very rude. If I had a child that was in line and doing what they were supposed to be doing and were effected by this, I might have said something to management or let my DH say something to the dad. It's amazing how prevalent the lack of manners is. On the bright side... you are in HAWAII!!!  So... close your eyes, relax and forget about the slide. LOL!
