How is the construction going on? They should be near completion. I spent a lot of time in that old booth.

Yes. They're getting a new booth. Hopefully the air conditioning will work better than the old one. That's the hottest spot in the park. It gets over 110 degrees in that booth during the summer.

No, there's other explanations for that. They try their best to be professional. If only the visitors would do the same.

In my experience, the rangers have been uniformly professional, in spite of the wretched behavior of some visitors.
Taking pizza bribes, however...

My comment was meant as humor.

They don't do that when the booth is at 110 F. Ice cream maybe...

You can't feed the bears.... but you can feed the rangers.Feed ME!

They do try hard. Most love the job and don't mind the heat or the occasional difficult visitor. I was able to disarm a few and had them smiling when they left.
