Honestly, what's it all worth...

A nicer approach would work wonders for you, rather than confrontational. How much will any of you care if one of your crew is shot in a dispute...?

Be polite, it's amazing what it will get you.

Tell that to the kid who just lost his leg or to the parents or family of the person killed. One story about this happening per year is one too many. We have seen so many links just here on the TMC board alone this summer...too many "accidents." BS! Take responsibility for what you are doing!

Rant over.
I think a lot of us would spend most of our time on the water yelling at people, or trying to thump the heck out of them. lol

agreed, I was able to slalom the full length of our lake yesterday afternoon, not another boat on the lake and almost glass conditions. I feel sorry for those of you that have to go through this crap every weekend.

LOL - I will say in traffic, there's nothing better to me that when someone shoots me the finger... It's the funniest thing, that I pissed someone off so bad, they had to do that... Think about that the next time someone flips ya the bird - laugh - ya pissed them off like they pissed you off.

On our lake, the majority of the rule breakers were English Second Language students, que no hablan Ingles. Luckily, I am fluent and can spell it out in 2 languages ...

Still no matter how bad they get, we're not allowed to shoot em, they have more rights than natural born citizens.

I was thinking about moving back to Tx but obviously the liberal disease has overflowed across that border. RIP

I couldn't even laugh. I did however fill every bag I have and cross them on the way out. It was beneath me but God forgave me since I didn't shoot them instead. Only thing good about passing a wakesurfer is you can do it at 14 and throw a wicked nice roller into them loaded up
