moving your stuff to cut grass

Ok I would like to ask if I am out of line with thinking that it is very poor campground etiquette to come on to my rented site and move all my stuff out of the way so they can cut the grass. It took me about 20 minutes to get a satt signal with my dish clamped onto the picnic table and this guy comes along while we are swimming in the pool and moves the picnic table with satt dish and lawn chairs trypod, and green turf. I was angry... Am I just to sensitive?

Angry

It was perhaps inconsiderate but he was just doing his job and perhaps did not understand about such things, and perhaps you would not be so angry if you learned how to tune your dish. It should take no more than a couple of minutes to get it reset.

I'd have to agree. Mowing is an important part of keeping a campground neat. Since noone was "at home" he really didnt have much choice to move your "stuff". Be thankful it still works.

Way too sensitive.

Remember you're chillin' in the pool, relaxing and planning to go back to watch the game on a sat TV in a coach that costs bucks. That guy who is cutting your grass is sweating bullets trying to get done so he can get to his night job.

Next week, have a cold soda waiting for him. Once you show your appreciation, you will have the best looking grass in the campground!

Also, remember you were clamped onto the picnic table that presumably is owned by the CG!

To keep this from happening in the future find out when the grass is to be cut at your site, let the guy know that day that you carry a weed wacker and will cut you own grass under and around the table

If you know the mowing schedule (about), you can hang around till he shows up, and help him move the table. Then, when he's done, you can ask him to help you set the table back. While setting the table back, you can mention it has to be exactly in spot X so you can get reception. That way he'll understand, and you'll have made your point without being confrontational.
I've gotten a second dump of my company's dumpster by simply rolling the dumpster out and back for the driver. You'd be surprised how much you can get from so little.

Ok what if you are inside watching a good football game or movie and you hear the mower guy cutting your grass and then poof your tv goes blank because your dish has been moved..... would you go outside and thank the guy for cutting your grass and give him a soda?

Letsee; it's their grass, their employee, their property, their table. I'm paying for the privilege of using it for the pay period. I've had several slinky hose's ruined by weed whackers, but what's the mowing crew to do, unhook MY hose, trim, then re-attach it? I don't think so_ I should have been more observant and atentative to my surroundings.
Open another cold one and chill.

You ask what is the mowing crew to do. I would suggest for them to cut the grass after we have checked out. After all they were cutting the grass for the next customer, not me. This would be easier for the mower and less disruptive for the customer. We were were in a field with maybe two or three rvs so it would not have been complicated. Do I still sound sensitive....... I will chill and have another cold one unless someone eventually agrees with me.......

That makes a difference in my answer. Dry camping in a field begs the question, Why is mowing so important that day? It's not like 2-3 days will make a huge difference in mowing.

Steve,

I sounds like you're just itchin' to wail on these grass cutters. Sure you can develop any scenario like they moved your dish while you were watching the game but that DIDN'T happen. If you want to vent, get the owner of the campground or the grass cutting company on the line, not the poor guy who runs the mower. What action would give you satisfaction in this case? Getting a guy fired for moving your stuff? Seems a little over the top.
