This past weekend we took our families out on the lake for a nice long weekend to simply cap off the summer in one last big bash. Here in the South though, there is this thing called “fall break”, which is honestly a bullshit school holiday where teachers and student get to take time off before a month and half of crunch time.
While on the lake you see all of the typical individuals you would expect. Everyone there is broken up into these categories…
- Successful men that bought a family boat for their families to enjoy
- Men that over-finances a boat for their families to enjoy
- Rednecks that bought something for themselves to enjoy
- Rental boaters who simply want to trash what everyone else has worked hard for
Labor day in itself has always been something that I have perceived as a nice break at the end of summer to celebrate some nice grind-time at the office. The first 3 categories of these boaters, i can say in some form or fashion do deserve to celebrate labor day….
There is one group of these boaters who simply are parasites and they always seems to be consistently the same types of people. The rental boaters are typically showing up with a group of about 8-16 individuals to rent a boat that can legally hold 7 people. The result is now two watercraft that have idiots driving them. Now, i understand some of you may be thinking why i call them such things, but when you show up to rent a boat and you’re sucking on a pacifier and you’re in your early 20’s…. You have no leg to stand on.
Typically, on the lake there’s the experienced boaters and then these rental folks who ruin it for everyone who come out rolling on molly with their 1-hitters in their pockets like they’re going to a 311 concert. I can appreciate both of those things, but when those things can cause harm to my family or put my family in danger, you can go fuck yourself.
It seems like every fucking weekend there’s the same TYPE of people showing up to rent boats, the same type of people who do not respect themselves to even begin respecting others, or other people’s property.
If they don’t respect themselves, how the hell can you expect them to respect someone else’s property or be mindful of someone else’s life?
