  • we used to just use brownies. they're moldable- work better than any candy bar out there. that's what we used to do... the best part is you can go swimming after all the patrons leave!

  • When I was a lifeguard my coworkers and I thought about this all the time! A candy bar was tempting to do too.

  • (i'm 9:21) i also had one of my guards chew up some mcdonalds hamburgers and pretend to puke in the pool... i think i was quite possibly the worst guard/pool manager ever.

  • Yes...every lifeguard has done or considered something to that affect.

  • I know quite a few people who would do this. lol, but I hope not in the southern part of the state, cause without the pools i'd have nowhere to go.

  • As a lifeguard in wv I have done this. I've also told the kids there was a snake in the pool it was a rubber hose.

  • just get a payday bar and break some chunks off...that's what we did when we wanted so shut the pool. Sucking the candy shell off of peanut m&ms worked too.

  • I would use a candy bar. Snickers are pretty effective. Or gold fish crackers. We just pretended someone had thrown up.

  • I love how everyone from WV is assuming they know the pool/person...304 is the whole state. A lot of cities/towns, or for those from southern WV, who do not seem to use town or city names when identifying where they live: 55 counties.

    Submitted by Anonymous on Jun 23, 09 at 3:14am
  • This is such a true statement. Once while another guard and I were on duty, for 45 minutes, there was ONE kd in the pool. After we'd already worked around 3 hours.
