You know not all people are the same. But when you talk about pipeliners you talk about all. Its not easy when we have to leave are familys just so we can work like any other person out there. But what makes it harder is when you go to a park were you don't feel welcome when people like you talk about us.This is the frist time in three years i didn't feel comfortable.The only one that made us feel welcome was you husband.Well if i ever come back to missouri. your park is not on my list. Well now that we are gone you can get your sanity back.We are people to. We might have gotten a litttle noise sometimes. but when they work all week they deserve it.Its not like we fight or do stupid shit we just have a good time.So i'll keep reading your blog. to see who else you can talk about. I have better things to do besides talking about people.So keep you sanity in place you don't have to worrie about us anymore.YOUR PARK IS (KAN'T DO)and is not for pipeliners. PIPELINERS WIFE
Saturday, 26 September,
As I scrolled through previous posts reading comments left, I came across this one at the top of this post. Seems she was offended that I would talk about the behaviour of the group that she apparently associates herself with. I will take this opportunity to address her concerns.....
I agree that all people are not the same. This was made all the more apparent by the behaviour of the group that recently moved on. Yes, they were pipe liners. I still have pipe liners in my park. Lucky for them I do not prejudge their behaviour by the example of the recently departed ones. The ones that are still here have commented on the quiet evenings we all enjoy now. The noise level has gone down dramatically. The number of complaints that I am responsible for solving has also decreased...dramatically.
I am sure that leaving your families and traveling is a hardship, but one that you have chosen to do. By choosing this lifestyle you should expect to be subject to the rules of the parks that you stay in. These rules are not put in place solely to inconvenience any one group. They are pretty standard in any park I have ever stayed in. You say that I did not make you feel welcome, but that my husband did. Probably because I am in the office and he is out in the park. I am the one who answers the phone and hears the complaints, so that when you do see me it is to solve a problem. After addressing the same problem with the same party time after time I would agree that my facade would not be a welcoming one. Had any of you complained about another camper creating an atmosphere that you found to be unbearable they would have been treated the same as you were when they complained about you.
You say that because you work hard you deserve to make noise and have a good time. Do you think that the campers around you who may be tired and want to get a good night's sleep not deserve to have that. They also pay to stay here.
I am not sure what you would consider to be stupid shit. Would that be leaving a dog out to live in a cardboard box to howl and whimper all night. Maybe parking your vehicles in empty sites. Or maybe getting so drunk that you are seen laying half in-half out of your camper without a stitch of clothing on? Maybe it would be drinking out of glass containers in the pool area, or using the pool skimmers as your personal ashtray. The laundry room would be considered part of the building and would be a no smoking zone, but that didn't stop someone from emptying an entire ashtray of cigarette ashes and butts into the floor. The washers and dryers were repaired weekly due to overloading them. Maybe this is what you may be referring to.
You are absolutely right when you say that all people are not the same. Even with-in your group were some that would be welcome back at my park. I am glad that my park is not on your lists of parks should you ever find yourself back in this area.I tend to disagree that my park is not for people working on the pipeline, I do agree that it is not the park for the group you are with and I will definitely be screening my long term renters more carefully from this point on. Sad to say that a whole group of hard working people will no doubt be judged by the behaviour of a few.
Perhaps you should consider your own behaviour and why I found it to be worthy of posting on my blog.
