AAAAArrggg I was Nice

AAAAArrggg I was Nice

Oh no something horrid has happened........ AAAAArrrrrrrggggggggg.

I was nice to a tourist..... This is so rare. My husband grew up here on LakeFt.Gibson
He asked me to move here nearly 17 years ago. I did. I quickly learned several things.... When you live on the lake you sometimes have unexpected guests, and they will expect a good time. Every weekend is an adventure if you leave your house. I rarely leave my house on the weekends.

Everyone that is on the way to the lake has a case of HUA and it is skeery. Tourist generally are rude and think they are entitled to everything. And one of the most important lessons is never plant nice plants by the mail box. Tourist tend to stop and pee on them.... Never have figured that one out.

Anyway I ran down to the store for a minute. On my way back to the truck I encountered 2 Asian guys maybe mid twenties. I noticed they had the medium sized minnows. Around here minnows are important the color, size and wiggle. Don't ask me why my idea of fishing is a 12 pack of iced Bud and a good book under the shade trees near the lake. Pole is an option that I forgo.

Anyway I asked them if they were (Oh Lord here's your sign) going fishing... (yes I did) They said they wanted to wasn't sure where to go. I gave them directions to a nice safe area. Hey my good deed!!!

There was a murder here on the lake the first of the summer. Still makes me a wee bit nervous.

The weird thing is I never talk to anyone at the store but the locals. Why I was nice was a new one on me.....

I don't live in a tourist area so I can't really relate...well the casino is about a hour from here, don't know if that's a "tourist" area or not lol.
I can imagine it would be quite annoying though..especially the peeing on the plants part..

Lets just say I don't decorate my mail box up any more.
The worst thing is picking up the trash they throw out infront of our property. I hate when glass bottles are tossed out and break. They are horrible on the mower tires.

My problem is I talk friendly with everyone, if I leave the house. (key phrase there) I know what you mean about living in a tourist area, I have all my life. Most of the time, the majority are rude and feel entitled..as you said.

That is weird about the peeing on your flowers at the mailbox. Maybe if you planted tall plants, you could place a rat trap inside the leaves. (smiling)

You know last year For Memorial Day and the homecoming of my son-in-law (USAF just re-uped) we decorated the entrance with flags. Believe it or not no one bothered them.

Since there is a boat ramp is at the bottom of the hill about 1000 ft from my drive Seems like everyone wants to stop and drain the water out of the pumps or whatever and releive themselves. I don't think it occurred to those guys that we were sitting in our yard and watching them.
I have the problem solved now lots of wildlife habitat along the road I don't have to see them.heheheh

One of these days I will take a picture of our driveway entrance.
