We had a couple give us a 20 minute poop tank cleaning dissertation. We were still in the learning stages of the dangers of self medication (booze) and my blubberings seemed to terminate their interest in my poop tank.

We moved the next day and that seemed to clear up the neighbor part. Additional blue stuff cleaned up the smell problem and then AA cleaned up the other problem.

I have a T-shirt that says,

"If I throw a stick, would you leave?"

But I have to admit that I'm probably more guilty of actually being the 'too friendly neighbor'!

I hope this thread is not all about me?!

Only had this happen to us one time in 2 years. Perhaps I am the unapproachable type?

I run into this ALL the time, because I tend to walk daily, and I'm often tinkering on things outside the rig, and folks just naturally like to stop and chat. Some folks I really enjoy, but even they can be exhausting with time-wasting trivia, so I have the answer.

When I start getting antsy or uncomfortable, I just wail for a lull in THEIR conversation and explain (very briefly) that I do a lot of work at my laptop, and I really need to check on a few things, it's been nice, but I really have to get some things attended to....

This works without fail, it lets me control the situation on my own turf, and no hurt feelings.... Five minutes later, I can resume whatever I was doing, and it was probably time for a break anyway.

Since my hubby is much better natured than I , I usually excuse myself and go inside. That way, the nicer of the two of us can deal with the problem. As for me, I am not a rude person but I am direct. If I need to, I simply say "nice to see you but I'm busy right now," and walk away.

I think it's more difficult for kinder people to deal with, because they don't want to cause bad feelings. However if you continue to let them annoy you...YOU are the one feeling bad.

For some reason, DW isn't around much either
I love this place.

I have 2 children who I let roam free when the neighbours are being chatty. I find that after 20 minutes of my kids bugging them, they bug off.

Just yell back to your mate inside the RV and say "honey will you bring me the latest edition of the Watchtower for our new friends".

Well, that would certainly get me moving.

I'm a historical re-enactor, portraying a dark ages persona (read that as I pretend I'm a Viking at history fairs and such). To that end, I make leather sheaths for a friend who is a bladesmith. Usually, once I start bringing out the swords, war knives and axes, people tend to leave the camp alone while I work. I figure if they're up to coming over when I have them out, I'm willing to give them a chance at some conversation.

That is why they put wheels and an ignition key on RV's time to move on to the next stop
