Annoyances

What I really hate is when I am lying in the v-birth trying to sleep and someone is on the deck grinding the wenches all night long. Its so annoying I get nauseous then upset about there lack of consideration. And it's the principal of the thing to. If your going to effect other peoples tranquility better stay home.

Leave the wenches at home and meet up later.

Re: Annoyances

I thought it said "wrenches"...damn my old eyes! Yeah, we had that a few weeks ago. Memorial day party fever broke out all over the harbor. I have to say that I agree with you wholeheartedly.

If you don't miss or need it, just imagine or ignore. Otherwise, you need to take corrective action.

Just stay away from the non-slip areas - that stuff can create real "rug burn"

Re: Annoyances

I guess no one got the joke. How many grammatical/usage errors did YOU find?

My answer: No more than I usually do in any typical post around here (or any other online forum)

Until you asked about spelling errors, I couldn't figure out what the point of the thread was

Re: Annoyances

I never got the chance to grind the wenches on deck.

In the navy after working all night I'd find it hard sleeping when some guy started chipping paint on the 08 level when I was trying to sleep on the 4th deck. Fortunately I slept on the other side of the partition from the generators, when they kicked in, sleeping was easy, since you could hear nothing else.

Re: Annoyances

I saw 9 (?) but that doesn't strike me as particularly unusual on the intertubes so I just bit my tounge and held my piece
