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.
Madelyn later learned that the two employees commented on her bikini and asked her to cover up not because of the size of the bathing suit but because of her age. A woman passed her 40s shouldn't be revealing so much flesh.
“My body is different than the young girls that were walking around in their bikinis, but why should I be made ashamed of my body? I am comfortable in my bikini. I am happy with who I am”, Madelyn said to the two employees.
The Employees Thought Otherwise
The two employees were sure Madelyn would cover herself up, however, after hearing her counterargument, they weren't so sure anymore. Madelyn was confident with what she had to say.
If this had happened a few years back, she would have probably not been able to handle the situation, however, these were different days and different things were about to come.
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.
It Was Time for the Men in Blue
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.
