When It's Tough to Relax at a Resort
So you're all ready to head down to the resort pool. Sunscreen, check. Sunglasses, check. Towel, check. You can already taste the margarita. And then you notice that, even though there is hardly anyone at the pool, every single lounge chair is covered with a towel. Do you:
a.) Alert the authorities?
b.) Go to the beach instead?
c.) Rip the towels off the chairs and put them in the trash?
Or, you're enjoying the beach, watching the waves, taking in some rays, reading a good book. A family sits down way too close to your space, but that's OK -- the beach is crowded. Then they all pull out their plastic baggies filled with Marlboros and lighters and proceed to light up. Just your luck, the wind is blowing in your direction. And then they grind their cigarettes into the sand. Do you:
a.) Move your chair to another location?
b.) Politely ask that they refrain from smoking, mumbling something about allergies?
c.) Yell, "Hey buddy, the world is not your ashtray!"?
Or you're at the resort buffet, and you notice that the family in front of you is tasting stuff as they go along -- with their fingers. The topper is when the smallest kid, whose nose is running, picks up a chicken finger and then puts it back. Do you:
a.) Talk to the manager?
b.) Leave and order room service?
c.) Rap the kid's knuckles with your cane?
Okay, so maybe I'm a cranky old lady. But why can't we all be a little bit more considerate of the next guy, especially when we're on vacation and supposedly don't have stress to blame for bad behavior?
