Aussies are like Canadians!! Very polite and kind......often kindness is misjudged for weakness, we know what happens after that assumption I am
betting since you handled it so fearlessly, that you would have been more than a match for the sorry beerbelly. You handled everything
perfectly...excellent rant....very very funny...made my afternoon. Goodluck with the cleanup of the hull.....and Karma is probably catching up with
him by now anyway...
...children can follow thier parents or learn to take a different approach to life, but without someone showing them an alternative way to behave they
often get lost.....you can feel good knowing the boy will always remember the event....and your positive behavior in light of everything will provide
him with a lesson....
Very well put together I don't think I've laughed that hard in quite awhile, and in this day in age quality laughter is gold. I'm glad your well
built boat didn't take too much damage. I'm suprised though that a pissed off naked man wasn't an automatic repel borders. I hope you didn't
anger the man god too greatly lest he asks Davy Jones to show you his locker.
Beautiful, just simply beautiful, someday I may be as eloquent as you. Instead I tend to cuss and throw things.
Thanks for making my day, and I hope your boats ok, may the other guy have all the bad luck this little witch can hex him with.
who BTW is American and is constantly ashamed of the some of our citizens lack of respect for the others in this world. We aren't always right,
unfortunately there are quite a few of us who never reach a point where we see that. Sorry again.
I am amazed by your wordcraft, sir! I get seasick looking at a wading pool, but I've spoken with those who are far more sea-worthy than myself.
Boarding another craft without permission from inhabitants, and worse yet, bringing along a child to add to potential trauma is not the right thing to
do, no matter what. Would you just blithely walk through the front door of someone's home? Not in Texas. You get your head blown off. If the idiot was
so entirely mindless as to do both, then he well deserved far more than a tongue lashing and an eyeful of brazen nakedness. He should be kissing your
feet while backing away quickly, praying that you don't feed him to the shark-gods.
Oh, and not all americans are as obnoxious or overbearing as the lout you had the displeasure of encountering, but I fear its only getting worse.

Here's how an American would've handled the same situation. The man would've came in the quarters and been greeted by a revolver and told to get
the %$^% off the boat. You Aussies are real civil. I give you credit for being so nice.
Wow, thank you all very much for the nice comments. I really appreciate it greatly. Just finishing up a horror short story to post on ATS, but now
I'm trying to get agitated about stuff so I can rant some more. It's kinda hard because my life is pretty much stress free!
It's good to here your doing more writing. I've read all your stories here on ATS, and look forward to reading this new one! Why are you a farmer
when you could be an author?
Any chance you can give me a hint of what it's about? If you can switch between comedy and horror then you have my deepest respect, and after
reading The Solitary Knock (which was awesome) I know you can!
