Man, we've got friends coming over tonight, and I've checked with my apartment like 3 or 4 times to make sure we could watch the fireworks shows from the 12th floor pool balcony.
Checked one last time just now, to verify pool access protocols, only to be told that the pool is closing an hour early, at 8 instead of 9, and that we are SOL, because our city requires even privately owned pools to have a lifeguard present.
We should have one of the best fuckin' views of the cityscape. But no. They couldn't possibly pay the lifegaurd to stick around for one extra hour. Nope.
