Default Another topic to disect..puleeze:)

We all know how when we cruise, sometimes there are rowdy kids doing something to annoy someone...We might attribute it to the ignorant parents who either ignore, dismiss, or hope one of the crew will eliminate their problem..BUT, have you EVER come across, a cranky obnoxious ADULT who was in a snit, a bad mood, or you could just tell he was this way all the time...One time on the sailaway, there was room by the rail for me to get a better view...there was a row of empty chaises there, I moved one, to get to the rail, and this woman almost bit my head off..Lord only knows why, since she wasn't laying on it, but she was not a happy camper....I said,"watch..this nut job is going to be sitting at my table". Luckily she wasn't, and I really never saw her on the ship again, but I was sure she was being obnoxious to someone, somewhere...

We were on the Millie in the casino when I was tapped on the shoulder by a man who seemed to be in his late 70's to early eighties. He told me that I was playing his wifes machine and she wanted to play it now, I looked around and there were many machines open for play so I ignored him. He persisted and tapped me on the shoulder again and told me to leave the machine so she could play.

I don't like to talk back to older people but I did this time and told him if he touched me again he wouldn't have any money to put in the machine after I had him arrested for assault and I would have all his money.

He left in a huff.

I saw him another night and he was playing the same machine.

After he lost his money and left it, I went over and played it once.

It hit for $1200.00

I love the people who ***** about the lines that move too slow to suit them. I mean, gee, aren't there 1500 to 2000 people trying to get off the ship at each port?

Good thing he didn't see you. I'm sure he would have asked you to relinquish his wife's money.

Cheers,
