Re: Boat People Scum

What did you expect? 'Welcome Sonny?' 'Make yourself at home?' 'Marry my daughter?' You've got to remember that these are simply the nouveau riche of Florida. These are people of the land. The common clay of Florida's wealthy coastal cities.

I was having breakfast in a nice restaurant last week...didnt make a reservation and have to wait type of establishment.
Great food but i looked over and saw a guy put ketchup on scrambled eggs his waitress had just served him. So very wrong...
I couldve just kept my judgement private but i felt a need to berate him in public....you know that urge swelling up inside..a boiling..and my twitter followers might like it too.
The manager of that Waffle House told me to leave and to never come back. And she wasnt very nice about it.

Re: Boat People Scum

We remove as much packaging as possible when we make a purchase and leave it at the store.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Re: Boat People Scum

Iíve asked permission to use dumpsters and almost never been turned down. Iím often told it could only be that one time, which has always been fine. Garbage removal is very expensive on a commercial contract. I would never presume it was there for public use.

Iíll bet the old lady has been victimized by much worse and was overreacting. Many cruisers take advantage. My biggest peeve are those that pull the lid off park receptacles, designed to capture drinking cups and picnic plates, in order to jam two full garbage bags inside and then balance the lid atop that no longer fits. Thatís low class.

Re: Boat People Scum

Years ago Shelter Island instituted a policy that it would only accept bagged trash in their designated bags... which were sold in the hardware/marine store to boaters but probably distributed to local homeowners. Apparently boaters had been leaving huge trash bags from their boats. Lids were locked so you couldn't shove a large bag of trash into them. Dering harbor has hundreds of boats moored and lots of weekend sailors plus all those how pick up transient moorings and anchor. Their solution was reasonable and cost a few pennies. Disposing of trash from boats is a problem.

Northport has a dumpster in the parking lot next to the Harbor which anyone can use and many trash cans without small opening lids. This town has 2x the boats as Dering Harbor, but the town is willing to provide trash collection because the park is popular and many pedestrians, tourists and boaters visit it. They don't allow food vendors however, probably not because of trash but to support the local restaurants, and delis who sell take out food. The town is very clean and they provide dog poop bags free in the park.

Humans create waste and the packaging of everything we buy adds to it. We need solutions not NIMBY attitudes.

Ketchup on eggs is good. But not on waffles.

I'm trying to figure out how she could tell.
Just give them a great big smile, say nothing and move on. It pisses them off even more.
