Accidents happen, we're human. But you stayed and cleaned up best you could. You made an effort, and you weren't doing wrong in the first place.

This other thing is completely unconscionable.

Thanks Bob. Yep, there are some people who feel that rules and common courtesy are for others, and don't apply to them.

Like Cousin Eddie dumping sewage into the storm drain...

No less than 20 seconds after I read this, I hear a drill like sound from a power tool from a couple sites down! Goes on for a few minutes, stops and starts again. If I wasn't still in my pyjamas, is go check out what the heck they were doing.

I use a cordless drill to put down my stabilizers. Takes fifteen seconds to thirty seconds per jack (total making two trips to ensure snugged).

I don't think I could spend ten minutes per corner if someone paid me. I can't imagine what the person was doing.

I am like Camper Bob, I try to leave my site better and cleaner than when I found it. But when someone is inconsiderate, I will point it out, especially when it effects others.

Our family camped at a local state park this past Fourth of July Holiday. At the dump station, the jerk ahead of me left his bag of garbage behind instead of making the short walk and disposing it in the dumpster. That infuriated me so much that I grabbed the bag and took it home with me. I was hoping there would be a little gold nugget of information of who he was in his trash. Sure enough, the idiot put his reservation slip in the trash with his name and address on it. So I put his trash in a box and shipped it back to him via UPS with a little love letter inside telling him what an inconsiderate boob he was for leaving his trash at the dump station. I cost me $12.00 to ship, but to me, it was worth every penny.

Hmmm, maybe THAT is why we should keep those cheap hoses from the PDI - to "give" them to the less fortunate!! To make a bigger impact, have taped on it a pre-written note explaining about camping manners and etiquette.


BTW, have you seen what those people did with Post-Its to the car parked in the handicap zone?? Car illegally parked in handicapped zone plastered with Post-its - TODAY.com

Now that could have been an honest mistake too. Unless the circumstances lent themselves that you knew it was malicious or lazy. I sometimes find myself in a hurry to get out of someone's way, that I could make a mistake like that. I'm trying like heck not to be a burden to my fellow campers, then I forget something and end up being a burden in another way...

I've left trash on my tonneau cover before, and had another driver alert me that I'd left my "groceries" out there. Red-faced and embarrassed, I got out of my truck at the red light and recovered it. I'm glad it didn't get blown away.

Now I put it on the windshield; no way to forget about it there.

Like I said, we're not perfect.

While shaking the drain line a heard an extreme gush of water followed by.... the smell.

This guy emptied his tanks straight into the drain without a hose while spraying it with water from a safe distance. I normally keep my mouth shut, but found myself giving into my emotions by calling him out and saying " You need to get a hose! That's disgusting! "

Was I out of line in saying something? Is this a normal practice?
Next time volunteer to pull the valve while he holds the lid open...
