Default I think gripe covers it all

Hmmm, I think this gripe covers it all ...

Fat mothers who breast-feed their kids while smoking and eating by the pool, drinking smuggled booze, wearing a thong, and saving a separate chaise for the baby in case Poopsie wants to sunbathe while listening to her Barney sing-a-long tapes on her boombox.

:-)

...and she tells you loudly and at great length that she never tips, because she doesn't believe in it, but she doesn't want the price of her cruise to go up by so much as $1 because of it...

and says how this is their 645th cruise and they always get a suite because her husband owns a large corporation and she booked it at the pier the day of sailing.

Actually, she booked the cheapest inside cabin on the ship and got upgraded to the Owner's Suite. Of course, she has also been invited to dine with the captain every night.

Oh this is so funny because I've known people like this! She is also complaining that the food is terrible while she loads her plate to over flowing.

I can solve this one - bring back the plank! At the end of every cruise the ship's population - both passengers and staff - get to vote on who walks it. Then we wouldn't here any more braggin' or b*****n' from at least one. Kind of like Survivor - cruise style.

Her husband was confined to his cabin by security yesterday. He punched the living daylights out of a staff member at the fun factory because Poopsie didn't like them.....

What happens next - I think "she" is really upset over the melted butter incident because she is actually a "he" and that became clear when the young, studly Croatian started rubbing the butter all over. Now she-he thinks its an invasion of her-his privacy (or private parts) and now the husband of the he-she in question isn't sure if he should file for divorce or just move to San Francisco and let bygones be bygones. :o) Jennifer

You left out a thing or two - when the he/she's husband couldn't handle the news he called his Mommy who was immediately airlifted on to the ship (it was consider a mercy flight). The MIL went to kitchen, grabbed a meat cleaver and went after the he/she with the utensil and tried to Bobbitize the offender. The tranny hot tailed it up to the steering room and tried to hide behind the captain. Mom threw the cleaver and accidentally impaled the captain to the joy stick so the ship was stuck making a wide right turn for several days - it circimnavigated the earth three times before it was stopped by forty three cuban refugees on an inner tube making a run for Key West. :o) Jennifer
