Fortunately I'm not here to impress you. Was your humour bone broken in an accident? I cannot believe people are taking this guy seriously. He appears delusion.

Re: New Zealand Immigration Officer Making Wild Claims

I think No Ties was simply using the drug comment as a shorthand way of saying he thinks OP is an idiot. For me hard to disagree.........

...also being an idiot makes it easy to spot in others!

Agreed. It's just called speaking plainly and colourfully.

I certainly didn't read it as a literal case of accusing the OP of drug use, and I doubt the OP himself would of even taken it that way.

It would however appear that there are others on here though whose sensibilities were affronted.

Given 25 pages of discourse i think we are now at this point in the thread, if you what i mean...........

Re: New Zealand Immigration Officer Making Wild Claims

They came out in a zodiac with 5 officers and took my boat away today threatening to arrest and deport if I didn't comply. It is stuck on the hard and the future is uncertain. I caused a red flag because of the boat's appearance .

Meanwhile the weather is perfect to leave.
