I was staying at the opryland resort for the weekend. I called before we came and asked about using an electric skateboard. The person I spoke too, a booking agent, said as long as it’s not inside the hotel it’s fine. I went out for a ride with my son, was polite and going slow, as we rode to the mall. I was stopped by hotel security who a complete prick and told “no skating in hotel grounds”. I replied, before we even came I called and asked and was told it was fine as long as it was outside the hotel. His reply, you ask? He said “do you want me to take that skateboard?”. My reply “Sir, with all due respect, you can try”. I then WALKED away with my son to the mall.
When we got off of hotel property onto mall property, a security car swerved I’m front of us, not 10 feet away (thank lord gator for brakes) and said…You guessed it “no skating in mall property”.
At this point I said fuck it, walked back to the hotel and got the car. We ended up going downtown. As I was getting my board out of the trunk a cop walks over and very respectfully (surprising, I know!) says “im sorry sir, there is no skateboarding or biking downtown”.
So I give up, screw Nashville. I’ve skated from Fort Myers to Chicago, Atlanta to St. Louise and never run into as many ass hats that hate skateboards in my life.
