Please don't

Post by Askit on Sun Aug 06, 2017 4:16 pm

Okay, I know I'm in danger of getting the "grumpy old man of the year award" but........

I get annoyed at people, who are almost never women people, walking round whistling tirelessly as they go. Almost as bad is the tuneless "hum" of some yet to be written aria, usually perpetrated in supermarkets   confused3 Well, if that was not bad enough, now they've started doing it in campsite showers (definitely men)   shrugg  

Please, no whistling and definitely no humming when scrubbing up.........you know it makes sense   good2

Sometimes I ' hum ' before I get in the shower but I am as clean as a ' whistle ' when I get out if that's ok.

OK, Tony,now you've pointed it out I can guess how annoying that must be so I'm gonna take that on board in future.

No more humming or tuneless whistling in the campsite showers.

From now on, it's gonna be just like at home for me:

We had a old chap in a static van in Portsoy who whistled away the same tune for most of the day,until we recorded him on the I-phone we played it back via a jambox speaker, he never did work out who was taking the mickey.

Er, campsite radio can be beneficial (for one important reason only) you know....... to drown out the natural early morning bodily function 'bum trumpet' chorus? We've all been there, when say several cubicles are occupied..... who's going to shatter the silence? hugegrins

Brilliant Roger, I can take singing any day (as long as it's not mine   winks ), even out of tune. I'm guessing most of the people doing it, whistling or humming that is, don't realise they're doing it. 

Boaby's solution sounds like a good one, or at least, a legally acceptable one   Whistle1

I'd rather whistling or humming than deep down chest clearing and spitting. That really puts me off my breakfast.

Never- as you say- in women only sanitary blocks but in most places the gents and ladies share a roof space so their noises can be heard.

Yuk !

Well Quilter, but we've landed on just the kind of site that I guess you wouldn't enjoy. To be honest I'm not over the moon about it myself, a unisex facilities block on a campsite in Scotland. It is comical watching new folk (doing what I did) going round the block at least twice before realising there is only one door to the shared toilets and showers.

I may well resort to whistling (loudly) myself   Whistle1

Very common in the Irish Republic, unisex ablutions. Must be a great saving in water usage. smile!
