Idiot!

This idiot came into the campground and blocked the roadway while he unhooked his towed and put all the towing gear away. The second one came in and finally honked his horn so naturally the idiot slowed down.
No idea why he didn't pull into the open parking area to unhook like I do.
Now he's trying to back in, two women got out to direct him, then they got into "discussion" on the middle of the road while blocking it again. They had to move the towed too since he parked it in the way.

That's correct, and some of us, still are. "Hi" to Sandee and my favorite dog, Zeus.

In February I spent 15+ minutes waiting to pull out of our site at a State Park (one way loop) due to some guy loading up his 5th wheel toyhauler in the middle of the road 2 sites down. In his defense the nearest wide spot in the road was a few hundred feet away, and he did have is golf cart, and other toys at the rv site, and the site was too short to open the toyhauler and load it up before pulling out..

Yup, experience is a great teacher. Unless we have experience, we may not know these things.. I usually ask If I can help, makes things go faster and is a good learning experience..

If they say no thanks, I retreat to my vehicle and mumble obscenities under my breath.

Not everyone is an expert.

Best place to watch a great show is a boat ramp !
We’ve put 30 bass boats on trailers while one pontoon boat used the other ramp. Loading coolers, fitting new life jackets on kids and grandma. Then get out the Owners manual on the new rig!
Luckily our tournament hadn’t come in when they were backing down the ramp. We were told it took 45 minutes and 3 different drivers!

It sometimes takes me a while to get the toad unhooked and the brake put away . I try to hurry but I have breathing problems and sometimes the old body just takes time. I am sorry if I have put anyone out but some day you will get old also.

the suggestion to offer help might work also.

Don, Sandy, and of course Zeus - I was never an amateur. I was born with experience. New how to tinkle right out of the oven! So there.
p.s., tinkle = pee in early day talk. :-)
