The waterpark authorities called the police as they wanted Madelyn to leave. They didn’t check further into the two girls’ accusations and chose the easy way out.
Most of the people around were supportive of Madelyn and didn’t understand what the fuss was about. The police officer understood Madelyn’s argument, however, explained that according to the law, they had to ask Madelyn to cover up or leave, as that is what they were called to do.
Supervisors on the Call
The two girls weren't prepared to let go and offered a compromise. Madelyn either puts on a pair of shorts or leaves the waterpark. There was no other alternative.
Madelyn's temper skyrocketed. She wasn't having any of this. She told them that their offer was unacceptable and that if they wanted her out, they had to get their supervisor to take her out. She was stubborn as a bull.
Did They Regret What They Said?
The two employees weren't expecting that. When they first asked Madelyn to cover up, they never thought it would escalate to such a high level and a feeling of regret hovered over them.
Next, when Madelyn wouldn't leave, the police arrived. A fun sunny family day out in the water park turned into a crime scene with Madelyn being prosecuted and two young girls accusing her of absolutely nothing.
The Unexpected Support
Madelyn was escorted by the police out of the waterpark. She couldn't believe this was happening. The police officer approached her and said; "I hope from the expressions on our faces you can tell how we feel".
Both Madelyn and the police officer knew something wrong was happening. They couldn't believe that in the 21st century people were still treated the way she was. Someone had to put a stop to this.
After years and years of feeling embarrassed about what she looked like, she had finally learned to love her body, and there was no way she would let people treat her that way. She was a victim of discriminating judgment.
She had overcome her fear. She knew she did no wrong. The people around her supported her and even representatives of the law, the men in blue, gave her their full support. Well, as much as they could anyway.
