I was going about my day today as usual, minding my own business. Then we decided to go to this water park for kids( some kids I was babysitting this afternoon), so there I was in my great “let’s do this” mood, bubbly even I must say. I walked up to this park paid for an hour of course, changed the two adorable boys,some sunscreen, I was in my cute shorts, so was my friend who babysits with me.
All of a sudden we weren’t allowed to go in the water, why? god knows it’s for no reason. Asked the manager then one Filipino guy out of no where starts shouting and saying we can leave the door is open blah blah blah. I am furious at this point. He was a customer service agent mind you.
Tried to reason with him he is at his job and should never disrespect us for no reason . The guy repeats himself saying the door is open we can go. Shamelessly, in front of so many people . His supervisor also Filipino is there doing nothing. Mind you all other Europeans were in the water with their kids.
I have had friends even roommates from the Philippines. Adorable, respectful and very humble people but what that guy showed me was completely out of character.
I must mention everyone in the water was white but when me and my friend who are dark skinned tried to go. They refused, became extremely rude. I defended myself and told him to respect himself and not talk to us in such a way and he must show respect to his clients.
P.s He was extremely nice to the other guests.
Racism needs to stop and people need to stop treating others with hate because of their color. I am not my skin color. I am human.
With love, Nelly
