When I go to the beach, I’m looking to relax. I want to plop my stuff down, stare at the ocean and eat all the snacks I brought in peace.
What I DON’T want is someone all up in my business.
So, imagine my surprise when we went to Ocean City last week and almost every single day ended up with people WAY too close to us. I mean, I understand that if the beach is crowded you need to be a little closer together. But, even when there was plenty of space we’d suddenly have a neighbor so close that I could hand them one of my pretzels. One day we even had people walking THROUGH our little area.
THROUGH our STUFF.
And these weren’t kids, either!
I guess since I’ve been going to Asseteague the last couple years, I didn’t realize that this was happening on the more crowded beaches. But OHMYGOSH people, back that ass up!
I know I’m about 2 steps away from shaking my fist in the air and telling those damn kids to get off my lawn, but I feel like I’m not alone on this one.
So, chime in. Does this drive you crazy too? What do you do when someone suddenly sets up in “your space”?
