I finally hit a little and the host sent a shot of Greygoose to me. Well I only drink beer and am not use to that. I kept one full bucket of quarters to play with. Well by the time I got to my cabin it was getting heavy and I was feeling the Greygoose. When I went to get my card out to open the door it was in the other pocket and.. Yes, I dropped the whole bucket of quarters! They went everywhere and made a big boom.

The next morning a knock on the door, it was the neighbor with quarters in her hand "I believe these are yours" and she was not smiling. I tried to apologize, but she was not too receptive. I felt terrible as was an accident. I look back now and it is a little funny

Sorry so long, just thought was interesting how things happen sometimes.
OOOPPPS!!! If you cared enough to apologize, I would have forgiven you. Life happens!!!

People like that need to chill out. And i would have givin you back at least 5 and kept the rest. Maybe i would have taunted you a little with something like hang 1 quarter infront of your door every night

That is all too funny

Heck, I thought I picked them all up. I think some went under Her door. She wasn't mean just not in a laffing way about it. I did appreciate the honesty and told her so.

Mr. O, you would have kept them because you would have thought you dropped them

On our cruise this past Sept on the Rhapsody, our room was on the 8th level, across from the elevators, directly below the main pool area. After reading about the noise factor, we were a bit worried. But never heard a sound (and I'm a light sleeper). You could open the door and hear music in the atrium, but as soon as the door was shut, not a sound. The only noise that bothered us was the people in the next cabin. They liked to sit out on their balcony late at night and early in the morning, talking rather loudly. We wanted to sleep with our balcony door open, but that made it impossible, so we just shut our door and the problem was solved.

Where was that Grinch's sense of humor? She should have been happy just to be ON A CRUISE. Best place in the world. Ah, your quarter experience sounds funny and like a good time was had from here!

Well. You were all very right. We have never slept so well, and maybe, MAYBE we heard a conversation or two as they went past our door, but we were never disturbed. We loved the gentle hum of the boat, and the rocking to make us sleep better. AAAHHHHH I can feel it now. Man I miss cruising!! I am so hooked.
A funny thing about the elevators on Ecstasy. Their "chime" when the door opens is hilarious. It sounds like a dying moose sitting on a sick beaver who is lying on a pregnant rat....lol....anyway thats how all of us on the last day on the ship discribed it. It was great. I miss it....crazy I know, but I do.
As far as the quarter thing goes, how funny. You made a memory. It didn't have to be a good one.....
My friends call that my motto. When my husband and I first married 25 years ago, an old man in the grocery store told me when he saw I was fussing at my husband about something, to just fill your life with memories. They don't have to be good ones, because at the end of your life thats all you have. So...my motto has always been that. "Make a memory, it doesn't have to be a good one." The ones that you think are the worst ones you ever had, somehow are the ones you laugh about later the most.
So cruise on and drop more quarters I say. Thanks for the chuckle.
