Camping world

Happened today, my DW and I were leaving local CW and as we reached the door a very unhappy customer wearing rubber gauntlet gloves was carrying his stinky slinky. Yup a recently used stinky slinky. We sat in parking lot for a bit to watch the fun thru the windows. Couldn't see much thru the leaving customers!!

If he had just bought the stinky slinky or fittings from that CW, I don't blame him!

I'd have gone back in to see the "Camping World Song and Dance Show" as to their explanation as to the reason the product failed or what ever the guys issues were.

Exposing other customers and CW employees to such disgusting contamination is irresponsible, maybe even criminal. In a civilized society, you air your complaints in a civilized manner. I don't know what the product defect was, but it was likely a manufacturer's issue, anyway. I've personally never had a problem returning a defective product to CW, at least with some reasonable explanation.

If the story is true, pretty sad. If the story is fiction, then there is a thread of humor, although it slanders the intelligence of the customer and is just another CW put down. I hope, given the category of the post, it is "rv humor" rather than a "crazy but true story."

Sewer hose. It got the name cause it looks almost like a slinky toy. I think you can get the stinky part.
