Default Don't tell me we've run out of gripes...

Has anyone else noticed a significant drop in the new threads started on this forum? Is it the approaching holiday season or has everyone run out of gripes about their past cruise(s) and now needs to take another to "restock" the fuel for the gripes? Come on, people, I depend on you for at least one chuckle per day - at least on Monday-Friday ;->

Hi Lisa, I think the culprit is that there are a limited number of "common" cruise gripes - the photographers interrupting dinner, the singing waiters, the way some people dress - and most of them have already been covered on this board. It's tough thinking up original gripes.

Of course, PapaBill is away on a cruise, so that could have something to do with the lower number of gripes.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Hi Michelle,
Yep, now that you mention it, I do miss Bill's gripes :-) If I remember correctly he was doing back/back cruises, so it may be a little while yet before he returns, hope he's enjoying himself and making a "gripe" list???

I think it's because it's election day here in the States and we used up our gripe quota at the ballot box.

You know the good old standards; Smoking/Non Smoking; Fat people; Ugly people, Rude people, Kids on the Cruise; Groups on the Cruise; Door slammers, poor tippers, people who hold up lines, line cheaters, people who sit alone at a table for four....what else folks, i'm sure there are more. Have we really exhausted things we usually like to gripe about?

I leave you guys for only two weeks and you can't find anything to gripe about. Where are Thomas and Rick when you really need them?

Hey, we did our best!

I'm in need of another cruise to come up with some more gripes. Does anyone out there want to contribute?

Regards,
Thomas
