I have seen it all now

Rig pulls in to the next site tonight. Toad is on a rearward slope. Has not opened toad, so still free wheeling. Goes to unhook toad. Pins on hitch a wee bit tight. Tries to beat them loose with a big hammer (I visualize a launched toad). Pulls all forward to a level area. Pins will not come out. Flattened due to big hammer? Pulls back into campsite. I'm going to bed as I hear the sound of a metal file, rasping.

Oh, do please share some, Sarah!

BTW, after the escapade last evening, they left. All of that for a one-nighter!

Old version: "You cannot make anything idiot-proof; They are too inventive"

New version: "You can't fix stupid"


Whenever you are in the mood for some laughs, skip the comedy club - Just hang out at a campground or a boat ramp.

Here's one for ya! I was filling my DP, one day, when I saw this big RV, pulling a toad, coming up to the red light, going way too fast. As he passed by, I noticed that his unmounted spare was secured to the rear of his DP. I thought, "that's a strange place to carry a spare?" The driver must have noticed the light was red, so he slammed on the brakes. The RV did stop, but the toad kept going and slammed into the rear of the RV, high up on the tire! I thought.....so that's what the tire is there for! When he pulled away from the light, the toad slammed back down, hard on the ground! I wondered how long the toad could keep that up?

My version (a facilities manager): Just when you think you made it idiot proof..... a smarter idiot comes along.

That could be called inventive stupidity!

A MH pulls in to the park, wife gets out to help back him up, she stands there as he runs over the water hook up. With water shooting up he gets out and says "sorry, I'll fix it, I'm a plumber". Park maintenance fixes it. A few days later they leave. In a few weeks they return and this time the manager calls the maint. guy and asks him to help guide the guy into his spot. The wife gets out and stands there as he backs up and runs over the power pedestal before the maint. guy can get there. He jumps out and as he is picking up the smashed power pedestal he announces that he can fix this as he was an Electrician. He was lucky that none of the hot wires broke loose. Park called in a certified electrician to fix it.

BTW, the manager decided that enough was enough and has black balled him from the park.

Sounds to me the problem was behind the wheel.

They could set up bleachers, and charge admission at most boat ramps !!

Being a CG Host is entertaining and exciting! It is amazing how lucky some people are in this world! Wish I had a nickle every time I've heard "my cable don't work!" my answer is turn your antenna booster off and try it................I'm not using my antenna! I'm trying to use the cable!
