TOP 10 LIST
- THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE OWNING A POOL - THINGS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE USING YOUR POOL:
1- They tend
to invite themselves over for a swim in your pool a lot.
2- They expect
you to provide all ancillary items - sunscreen, towels,
floaties and are offended if you don't offer them.
3- They expect
you to watch their kids (who can't swim) for them.
And they usually bring their brat kids who scream,
holler, and fight the whole time.
4- They expect
you to provide snacks (if early) or a full out barbecue
(if it's late afternoon).
5- People you
haven't heard from in years also show up and think it's
perfectly OK to bring THEIR friends, too (most of whom
you would rather not be at your house). Family can be
the worst offenders.
6- They want
to offer "pool advice" even though they don't know what
they're talking about.
7- They think
it's perfectly fine to leave your pool area trashed when
they leave because you'll be there to clean up after
complain that the water's too hot or too cold (never
mind that they invited themselves)
9- They don't
go home when you're ready for them to go home.
10- No matter
what they tell you, they WILL pee in your pool.
