Legoland stupid 

Hey, I'm back.
And noticing that government doesn't have a monopoly on the stupid -- here's one from Toronto's Legoland -- they wouldn't let a man and his daughter in because they didn't have a child with them:
John and his daughter, Nicole St-Onge, saved up, planned the trip and made the three-hour drive [from Windsor to Toronto], only to be turned away at the door because of a rule, unbeknownst to them, that adults must be accompanied by a child in order to get in.
"They wouldn't let us go in and so we asked to see a manager," Nicole said. "Five minutes later the employee came back and said the manager was too busy to see us, but that was their policy, they weren't allowed in without a child and there was nothing they could do about it."
As a result, they turned around and headed back to Windsor.
"I was crushed. My dad is 63 years old, he was devastated. The look on his face was like a child not getting the gift at Christmas that they want. He felt discriminated against because he's a senior citizen who also happens to like Lego," Nicole said.
Nothing they could do about it? What is it with corporations that act like their policies were handed down to them from the mountain on stone tablets? And these are the first guys who'll complain when a government bureaucrat doesn't give them a break.
