It wasnt dry camping... kind of an empty field with hookups.... . Not itching to wail or get anyone fired. The scenario that I created didnt happen only because we were not in our unit at the time so it wasnt to far fetched and im not looking to take any action at all on this as yes that would be over the top. I was simply annoyed at the mowers personal lack of judgement.

It may be your anger is missdirected. The guy who cuts the grass may not even know what a dish is. His boss may be a real {moderator edit}. If you fixed your problem with the cutter you have only fixed it if he cuts the grass. The attutide of the employees is a reflection of the management. If the management isn't intrested if you are happy then you'll not be happy staying there. All you can do in that case is stay someplace else. But the management of the park should hear about your experiance and at least have a chanch to provide better service. Talk to tham and let them know how you feel. We all have a right to express our dissatisfaction with products or services we pay for, so do that and see if they care. If not than go elsewhere. I'm sure the readers on this board would like to hear your assesment of there attitude.

moving your stuff

my favorite rv park gives all campers written notice that the mowers will be around on every wednesday and please move your stuff off the grass.
that seems to work for everyone as they are full every summer.

A mowing guy clipped my fresh water hose while we were away. We returned to find we were washing the RV next door. I shut off the water and toddled down to the office. The manager came out, decided I had the hose far enough out of the way it shouldn't have happened, and gave me a new hose. After that, the mower guy waited until I was there, and I moved the hoses for him to mow under. Was it a PITA to do this? Yes. Did it keep the incident from recurring? Yes. But in the fullness of time, the mower guy and I got along pretty good, I supplied cold sodas, and my site was the best-mowed one on the property. He even helped me aim my satellite dish. (he really did, nothing snarky intended)

I was angry... Am I just to sensitive?

While we are fortunate enough to have an RV to spend time relaxing, that poor guy is probably working for minimum wage, and absolutely had no intention of ruining your stay. My thought would be to get a roof mounted satelite dish, then let them mow all they want. Hope this is the worst thing that every happens to you.
