Cranky Complaints-Lady Takes on: the Scientific Establishment

image One of my favourite attractions in the city and it’s FREE – this Saturday only.  Urgh.  So:  a kvetch, my first in a long time!

Subject: Community Day this Saturday

imageAs a family of 6, we don't get to visit the Science Centre often enough.  With a price tag of $82 per visit, our single low income makes it almost totally inaccessible (we visited a couple of times with free passes through the Toronto Public Library).

I was excited to hear about your upcoming Community Day.  However, I quickly discovered that, as observant Jews, we will not be able to participate, because the event is being held only on a Saturday.

I'd like to know whether we can arrange a free or reduced-price visit on another day.  I'm sure your intention wasn't to exclude an entire segment of the community simply on religious grounds, and I really hope it will be possible to make other arrangements.

Thanks so much!

Yours truly,

I've been soooooo tempted to write a letter like that, especially now that we're in GA where NOTHING happens on Sundays. :) Really curious to know what the response is! :)
