That's not a 'Chair hog' btw. I would define a chair hog as someone who comes early, throws towels over the chairs for friends/family who don't show up for another 2-3+ hours. But if I go to a pool and chairs are available (and we do, often, as do the rest of the pool patrons) my kids and I will put our towels there, go swim, then take a break, etc... We've been known to spend 4-5 hours at the public pool, even taking a break to go outside and eat lunch, and yes I FULLY expect my belongings to still be at my chair when I return. As does everyone else. It's called respecting others property and having common courtesy.
I believe the original post said the chairs were holding snorkels. Just snorkels. No towels or anything else to make it appear that maybe a family was swimming and would be back.

In that case, I don't believe she was wrong to do as he did.

I wouldn't call holding up a chair for 4-5 hours that your aren't sitting in, while making others stand who would actually want to be in it just so you can finally sit down when you are done, common courtesy. As far as I'm concerned, a chair isn't mine if my butts not in it. I can understand if you are using the bathroom or grabbing a drink and will be right back. But 4-5 hours? Maybe I just have a weird sense of "common courtesy".

I guess I would see it very differently. I am the type who sees a tired mom with sleeping child in my spot I would ask if she needed anything and if she could continue to watch my chairs while I run to get a drink. Buys me more time. Could have made a new friend.

I confess

I love reading these confessionals. I have been reading for two days and haven't mad it all the way through. Here goes mine... (taking deep breath)... I booked a veranda room just so I could sit outside and drink my coffee nekked. There, I said it and I own it.

Sorry if I ruined anyone's plans for sitting on a veranda because now you're going to be wondering if the last person that had the cabin sat naked in it.

This one is awesome!!!! I was always worried that even on sea days someone on either side could look around the white verandah wall and see in, yes I'm paranoid.

Sorry, saving chairs while you go eat lunch is definitely 'chair hogging'.

Being naked on the veranda is mild in comparison. Bring Lysol.

ice cube spitting...

We had gotten back early from port... I think it was in Cozumel... and I and the kids were hanging on the veranda looking out over the pier and we had drinks with lots of ice. The pier was DESERTED... no one down there... so we started seeing who could hork a ice cube the farthest. We were having a blast, and I was giving my 18 year old a run for his money in the distance department... when our veranda neighbors came out... saw what we were doing and gave us such a disgusted look... I felt like such a BAD mom... but it was hella fun

ps: I totally promise we hit NO ONE

They do! And you cannot be a character if you haven't mastered the signature.

Well, this being an open confessional which should be free from judgement, you of course are entitled to your opinion...

...even though it is wrong.

Some might not understand the concept of adults singing Disney songs and swimming in mermaid costumes either. I always wonder why the people who are in the 'that could never happen, that's not real category' like Disney, because nothing is real about Disney! That's WHAT I like about it!

I also give the characters credit. They aren't models, they are actresses. They stay in character the entire time, and they don't just sign stuff, they interact with you. We enjoyed our time with Princess Tiana (a lovely complete class act), and when we told Ariel that we were real life mermaids too on the island that day, without missing a beat, she asked "and what color mermaids were you?"

I love those gals. They are living my dream. I believe it's not easy and seeing them all over the ship or park IS thrilling, whether I'm 13 or 31!
