S/he who laughs last...

26th October 2010

I am awoken by loud music at 2.30am in the morning. Two women, one in a skimpy red negligee, are flirting and partying with two guys and find everything hysterically funny.

Well, I don't.

I have all kinds of ideas of how I could add to their „fun“ (things like throwing shoes and see how well I can aim in the dark, making music by banging their heads together or following them to their tent and locking them in, preferably just when they realise how urgently they need the bathroom.)

They never know how lucky they are when AH goes out instead of me to have a word. It takes about half an hour and two attempts to finally shut them up...

Unfortunately, one of the dogs in the camp starts howling instead, so when the sun dawns I feel hungover from lack of rest.

I notice that the two guys who caused the racket last night are sleeping in a tent on top of their camper van, which means they need the ladder to get up and down. What if I removed the ladder, just as the people in the village remove the tree ladder when they want to stop their chickens from coming down... That way the trouble-makers would stay out of trouble for a while...

I am too health and safety conscious to act on this thought of course, and again two people continue to sleep peacefully, blissfully unaware how narrowly they escaped disaster...

Only they don't...

At the next campsite I find out that two fellow travellers locked the guys in their tent with a cable tie, driving home the message that if you don't shut up, you will be shut up... May this story travel around all the campsites as a warning!

Just a shame that the girls had a lucky escape. They were even worse than the men. (I think the French are right when they say that we should look for the woman when a crime gets committed.)
