Unexpected Camping Friends?

So have you ever pulled up to a camp and found out you were camping with someone you knew from work?

So I have a guy at the office that I work pretty closely with daily....he and I get along well, but have never done anything outside of work....

So today he asks me where we are going for spring break....low and behold we are going to the same place a few sites apart. This place is like 6 hours away - what are the chances?

My big deal with spring break is to get away from work!!! We vowed not to talk any work the entire week....but darn-it - I will be reminded of work all week long..lol....

(oh - and I DONT want to hear the I'M RETIRED, DONT HAVE THAT PROBLEM response lol....some of us still have to support your Social Security checks!!) :hihi:

I've retired a few times but keep finding a new job that seems interesting. My other part-time job is to keep the DW and kids full of crabs and prawns.

ps there is a reason they call it fishing, not cartching.

cheers.

Next week will be one full year from being retired (although, like mentioned earlier, I found another gig) I often visit and travel with friends from my "pension job"; we agree for the first night - ONLY - we get to talk about work. Then after that, it is all about family and adventures...

Terry,

Here's one for you.....; A couple of years ago I worked part time selling large appliances, and had a customer come in numerous times "thinking" about purchasing an inexpensive washer. Well after four months, she decided to buy the cheapest washer for a family of five, which wasn't my recommendation for someone doing 2-4 loads a day, but she was adamant about what she wanted.

During the month following the purchase she became my "worst appliance nightmare" complaining about her purchase. I'll for-go the details.

Anyway, four months later I was camping in the Michigan UP 400 miles away from home...., you guessed it, the next day my "worst appliance nightmare" with her family of five was setting up their PUP on the campsite right next to me!

Long story short, I crossed paths with her husband at the CG pavilion and all he said to me was "Don't worry about it Bob, I camp with her year round".

True story.

Bob

Never camped with 'em but I have ran into a colleague in a far away town before. Kinda weird walking down the sidewalk in Mackinac City and see someone you know.

Bob,

I think the only thing that could have made that situation worse would have been for her to bring the washer with her! LOL
