On our Navigator cruise there was this lady that was so rude it makes a good story. My jaw dropped to the floor and I was embarrassed to be an AMerican but looking back it gives me a chuckle to tell it.

We were in the Promenade waiting for Adventure Ocean to bring the kids down. It was set up next to Ben and Jerrys counter and across from the Pold Poets pub tables.So most of the parents were crowded in the middle hallways there. This lady goes over to Ben and jErrys and gets a stool. Sets it in the middle of the hallway for her perfect view and sits. The guy working at B &J asks a customer- "Please tell her I need my stool back. She can't take that stool over there" So the American guy relates the message. The lady turns her head and smiles "OK, Thank you. " and goes back to watching the empty stage. I'm just turned around in my place staring at her incredulously. So the worker guy comes out around the counter and walks up to thelady and says "Madam, I'm sorry but I need that stool back at the counter. That is for customers of B &J. " Her response was " Ok, Well if you can get your stool you're welcome to it"And she turned and smiled and stared at the empty stage.
I was in utter shock. This guy did not deserve to be treated that way. Bless him, he wasn't losing his job over her so he went and found her a chair and offered it to her and took his stool without a word.

She ended up sitting there for about 5 minutes and moved on. I was really embarrassed for US. I can't believe there are people out there like that.

What you and the B&J guy should have done was for each of you to get on either side of the stool, pick it up and carry her and the stool back to the counter!

She said these things so off the cuff, so readily- she must use lines like this often. She didn't hesitate or skip a beat. With that stupid grin on her face. I couldn't imagine going on vacation with this lady. I'd die.

It would have been all I could do to keep from dumping her rear end in the floor and taking the stool back. People like this are also the ones that park in handicap spots because they are close to the door. Unfortunately, people like that feel the world owes them something. A lot of times they feel like they can act any way they want because they paid their cruise fare. They must assume the cruise fare is a free punch on their life member stupid card!

I don't have a high tolerance for rude people like that. Sometimes it is a strain to keep my mouth closed!

It is hard to discern the rude ones from the outright ignorant idiots sometimes.

I'm afraid if I saw this episode I would have accidentally bumped into her and sent her no doubt robust rump to the deck.

If I was the crewman I would have just called security and let them deal with it. I certainly wouldn't have got a chair for her.

Yeah, they get in the cart at the front of the Wal-Mart and then drive it to the back of the store where the McDonald's is located!
