People .....

People continue to astound me. Yesterday, as I was heading into the office to check in a camper, I encountered a swim suit clad  woman going in at the same time. As July winds down and the beginning of anther school year looms large, things tend to slow down enough to allow me some outside time during the day.

As the couple were filling out the registration, I asked the lady wrapped in a towel if I could be of assistance. She handed me a $5 and asked for quarters for the washers. Then she asked me if she could be allowed to hang her laundry on the fence around the pool to dry .......

I can honestly say that this request was a first. Her reasoning was that I only have two dryers, but I have 3 washers. While this is true, one of the washers is out of commission while waiting for a new coin box. The new coin box had arrived, but was the wrong size, so, the washer had been unplugged ....

I asked if she was using that washer and she indicated that she was, she said it worked just fine. I told her that I knew it worked, but that it was lacking a coin box. She stared at me, at a loss for words, so I asked where the coins she had inserted to activate the washer had gone and she said she didn't know. HeWho has been under the weather happened to be lounging in his chair, so I alerted him to the situation. "Honey, I thought you had unplugged the washer that is waiting for parts." He assured me that he had, indeed, done so. "Well, that washer is in use."

He headed out to address the situation while I checked in the campers. Upon his return, he told me that he not only unplugged the washer again, but turned off the water. There was almost $5 in quarters in the open area waiting for the coin box. While he was turning off the water, the woman gathered the coins and was going to keep them!!

He asked her if she had taken the coins and she said that she had, so he stuck out his hand. She reluctantly gave them up. But she had put them with her coins, so who knows if she gave them all to him?

I am seldom surprised by people's actions, but this gal was something else!

Sounds to me like the woman may have plugged the washing back in to use it, people are strange

Amazing what people will try to get away with. Tonight we went out to eat at our favorite barbecue place. The restaurant sends out 2 for one coupons in the mail every month. Our bill for the two of us, with drinks, barbecued ribs, 2 sides, and all the hot rolls you can eat, is less than $16. I noticed that the person in front of me had an extra plate on her tray. Loaded with Mac & cheese and corn. She also had her ribs
plate---a divided plate---full of beans, cold slaw, etc. As she was totaling her bill, the checkout lady mentioned the extra plate. Surprise! There was a price for that! The "customer" was most upset. Oh, no. There should be no charge for that. She just didn't want her different dishes all mixed up. I was so glad the checker stood her ground. Said the policy is that you can fill one plate.

I wish somebody would help themselves to her clothes that she drapes on the pool fence. Or maybe you could take them, and hang them in your shop with a price tag!
