The dreaded phone rings…is it another cancellation? Someone wanting a cabin for snowmobile season? A wrong number??
DAN ANSWERS THE PHONE!!! “Clementz’s Northcountry Campground & Cabins. May I help you?”
OTHER END: “Do you allow drinking in your park?”
DAN: “We allow drinking but we are NOT a party park.”
OTHER END: “Do you have tent sites away from everyone else?”
Dan tries to describe how the campground is laid out and how large the tent sites are, and even though the sites are next to each other because they ARE so big, you don’t really notice your camping neighbor.
OTHER END: "Is their a quiet time?"
DAN "Yes, it is 10 p.m."
OTHER END: "Is it really enforced?"
DAN: "You bet it is."
OTHER END: “We like to be away from everyone so we don’t disturb anyone.”
DAN: (By now the red flags have gone up and his antenna are twitching) “Then I suggest you go to a state forest campground”.
OTHER END: “You don’t want the business? We thought campers were canceling!”
DAN “It sounds like you would be better off at a campsite out in the middle of the woods where you are less likely to cause your neighbor a disturbance.”
OTHER END: “Well aren’t you a rude !@#@!!” And they hung up!
AT least it wasn’t a cancellation! HA~!
