Here I sit, so annoyed. I was having a good day. The sun is shining and I have had a nice hot shower (no, not in my shower)and I was about the business of touching up the wall paint job in the bathroom, awaiting the reservations for two sites that will be in residence for two months.
When the canine contingent gave the alert that there was a stranger among us, I put the lid on the paint and carefully stowed the brush. As I walked through to the store I saw that there was indeed a travel trailer being pulled by a truck and I saw the front end of anther truck. I assumed that my reservations had arrived. I opened the door and looked out to see that both trucks were minus drivers. Figured they may have gone straight to the restroom. I swept the store floor while I waited. Then I straightened up a bit and waited some more. Then I wondered if I had put the lid on the paint and went to check. On my way back I saw the men getting into the trucks and I rushed into the store and opened the storm door to let them know that the store was open. That is when they put on some speed and took off. The truck that had been blocked from my view had no trailer attached.
Then I remembered ............. I checked in a nice couple yesterday and put the in site 72. It was early evening and I was finishing a garment, then went in to cook supper. We ate and while watching TV, he, who was building a set of shelves all day, asked how many I had checked in. I told him just the one that I put on 72. "So, you didn't put anyone on 30?" I didn't respond, just gave him a meaningful look. I suggested that he take himself to the site and bang on the door and ask to see the registration. He left and I assumed that he did just what I said. He didn't. There was no-one there. The truck was unhooked and gone. He assumed that it was one of the reservations I was expecting today.
See a pattern emerge? You know what they say about assumptions .......... to assume is to make an 'ass' of 'u' and 'me'. The party making their hasty retreat was the party that was on site 30. I called he who was helping a stranded motorist. He assured me that he had recorded the licence plate number. I feel so much better knowing this. Wow, I have this information and I can obtain the address of the low-life that stole an evening's stay. I can send them a bill!! I just know they will be prompt and send me payment right away!
To add insult to injury, upon investigation, I found that they did make use of the men's room. They left a special calling card in the toilet bowl. Also left the light on. To further annoy me. It worked.
