as i hit the launch on high rock this morning there was no less than 100 bass boats floating and awaiting blast off time. -big money tourny-not being dumber than a box of rocks i unstrap and stop 1/2 way down the ramp. knowing full well they are going to step on it right at the no wake bouy. turning the launch ramp area into a sea of 3 foot waves.. a gent in a large sea pro also haulted 1/2 way down the ramp. then this guy and a gal towing a canoe backs right on in. the guy in the sea pro tells him " be best if ya hold up a mintue." i think he cussed out the older guy in the sea pro..there he is floating right in the "firing line" as the first boat stomps on it. though they missed him by feet he was pitchin a fit about being swamped..i launched out after watchin them blast off.. there this moron is paddlin like mad up lake i eased over to him at and idle and told him he had the brains of a gnat to launch into that..and was told that holding up a mintue would have saved him alot grief.. -that he agreed with me on-he cussed me slap out any way..

i eased away checked my distance hit the trim and stomped on it.. ooppppss my bad moter was trimmed a touch high..84 degree water aint going to kill ya..

ya think they would learn..

My son (8 years old) is big on doing things the "right" way, and notices right away when someone else is not. He's big on correcting his classmates and so forth... which as we all know can lead to trouble in many cases. Until he becomes capable of more complicated decisions, I'm coaching him that if he thinks it's important enough to bring up at all, he can tell the other person one time that he ought to follow the rules... but after one time, he needs to trust a grown-up to deal with it (or not).

This could get onto a soapbox topic... in my opinion, the rampant "mind your own business" mindset in our culture is helping to destroy us. If I'm not willing to take gentle corrections from my peers, then the only corrective action that society has left is the non-gentle type. If I cheat a little here, [-]lie[/-] exaggerate a little there, and either nobody offers me, or I don't accept a reminder that I'm heading for trouble, then next thing ya know, I'll wind up serving 63 months in prison.

Plus, we'll wind up inundated with foul language and soft-core porn (medium? Medium-and-a-half...) and everybody will think it's normal.

Very well put Lefty!

What about those of us that are perfect and never make stupid mistakes? ;)
