No good deed goes unpunished. The current rule is no non boaters on my boat. I've had 1 too many unpleasant experiences not just related to gratitude. They simply have no idea what it takes to own and operate a performance boat.

****, I wouldnt have even offered them the ride in the first place. A good rule is to never mix business with pleasure. Especially when it comes to buying that house. In this situation you just opened yourself up to too many headaches. Once the offer was there and they got on board, you were stuck with their ignorant arses. You obviously couldnt have left them at the dock, your buying the house off of his dad. Wonder how that would affect the sale if you ticked off junior. As far as them not paying for gas or helping when the rain hit, as stated before, some people just dont get it. Its water over the damn at that point and there is nothing you can do. I dont expect money from my friends when we go boating. Its my contribution and pleasure to take them out. I make the payment, pay for gas and they bring the beer, food and girls. It all works out that way. We all have fun and enjoy it. They will offer to help tie it up at the docks, put out bumpers, cover it and so forth. They also know the rule about no shoes on the vinyl. Thats a biggie for me. Even when we pick up girls, no shoes on the vinyl. I dont care if they have to take them off before they step in or not. Usually not a problem. Best thing you could have done there Jason, not invite them out in the first place.

Non boaters. I learned long ago you can pick them out quick and I just give them the "yeah well go out sometime" line. It never happens. Also young adults and teens seem to have tunnel vision. They have no concern about what it going on around them, just that their good time is not hindered. I bet that stuff never happens to you again.

Should have turned the key when the word breakfast was stated.

As far as jet ski lift, why would that be an issue? I'm sure that is in your accepted offer to purchase contract, right?

downtown42 that is not in the contract specifically, it is concidered a permenant fixture and fixtures always are included in the sale of the property, they have no right to sell the lift.

People like that piss me the **** off, cause not only are they morons that ruin your day but me being younger(24) It makes us all look bad. I get so thrown by hearing people compliment me for normal things like holding a door for someone. Like they would never expect that. What the hell is wrong with people these days. Its not that hard to use a little common sense and have some ****ing maners.Bottom line TOO MANY *******S.

I would have done the same. We are here at the agreed time and I'm leaving. Do you want to come?

[w weeks later when I had the boat on the water I got my sweet revenge. I found his wallet and keys lodged between the rear seat and hatch. I looked at it first thinking it was a drunk buddy that left it last time out. But as soon as I looked at the driverís license the anger returned to me and I just came unglued. I took the 103 dollars that was in it and tossed the wallet and keys over the transom.

So sue me
