Pet Peeve #5 – Cheaty Cheaters.
One of the things we really enjoy on a cruise are all the silly games they play – particularly the trivia games. The grand prize for these games is a plastic model of a ship and we very proudly have two of them on our mantle. We won them fair and square because we have a ridiculously good memory for obscure facts and we always enjoyed the playing the games whether we won or lost.
However, there is a certain brand of greedy folks who figure if something is free and other people want it, they are going to make sure that they get as many of them as they can. That is so incredibly obnoxious. Most of these games are self-scored, and it’s just for fun, so they don’t exactly check to see if people are cheating, but on every cruise, there is that one family that just cheats outrageously so they can win a bunch of prizes and it just spoils the whole game for everyone.
They may win the prize, but they certainly lose the respect of all the other passengers trying to enjoy the game. Play fair – don’t like be the Cheaty Cheaters!
Pet Peeve #6 – Augustus Gloot!. And speaking of greedy – don’t go overboard (so to speak) on the food. The whole ship is stocked with PLENTY of food – they are not going to run out. Enjoying the great food is part of the fun of a cruise, but don’t be disgusting about it.
You know, those people at the buffet who are trying to “get their money’s worth” by piling their plates with everything but the ship’s anchor! I don’t envy them the stomach aches or the pounds they are going to put on by the end of the cruise. What a waste – er, waist!
So, that’s it. Those are my pet peeves in my cruise mates. If you’ve been on a cruise, what are some of yours?
I have LOTS of great cruise posts – if you’re considering one, you might want to check them out.
