Left the house yesterday heading for the State Park. Got confused, heading for the wrong park. Realized it, made a detour that landed us at I-69 and Highway 3 just South of New Castle. There is a Flying J at that location. Normally, I don't use Flying J's, but since I was nearing half a tank of diesel, went ahead and pulled in for a fill up.

Pulled in and saw a tow vehicle and trailer pulled up to the RV gas/diesel pump, and there was a dump station right there also. Nice trailer and appeared to be a solo woman. She was dumping her tanks. I scanned the car pumps and saw diesel on the end pumps, nearest the RV station, swung around to get in line. There was a car parked at the diesel pumps and no one in the car, so had no choice but to wait.

I'm getting concerned by now wondering if we'd make it to the campsite before dark, wondering when the driver of that car would ever come out of the store and move. Meanwhile, my wife was watching the solo woman go about dumping her tanks. It became apparent she was being very thorough, perhaps dumping and cleaning up for winterization. She was really taking her time.

Then my wife said, OMG, UNBELIEVABLE... LOOK AT THAT! I looked over at the dump station and I said, "What?" She said, look at her mouth!

Oh... eeeeoooowww! YUCK! OMG!

OK. I am one of those people that never use gloves at the dump station, and really, I admit, I get my laughs at folks that do use gloves, especially what they do with those gloves and their sewer supplies AFTER they dump and storage. But this one took the cake, as the expression goes.

Oh yes, she had gloves that were dedicated for dumping the tanks. They were a grey soft knit winter style glove. She was proceeding to rinse the sewer hose (in a very appropriate manor, no problem there), but dangling from her TEETH ... yes ... her teeth ... was the other glove!

OK, now you have a new mental image that will stick with you all day.

My wife had her phone in her hand and I said, quick.... get a photo of that. But by the time she got the camera, she had turned around and we missed the opportunity....

Well, have a great day.

And oh... we did make it to the campsite, parked, and set up and still had about 20 minutes of daylight left! Fantastic site... we're on site 40 at Summit Lake State Park (Indiana). We've tried to get this exact spot for 3 years straight now. It's that popular. We booked it a long time ago. This was the first week-end available for this site... probably in about 3 years trying.

I'm a bit OCD when it comes to the brown hose. Yes, that would have grossed me out too !!!!! For whatever reason, even though I am thorough and careful, I still feel "dirty" when I'm done emptying tanks. I tend to over-wash my hands.

But putting a glove in your mouth, esp an absorbent knit glove? That's enough to make me take a bleach shower...feel dirty just hearing it!

**Don't take the bleach shower statement seriously!

I'd never hold my glove with my mouth.

Hard to eat my sandwish with a glove in the way.


Is it time for your medication or mine?

I once saw a guy at a full hook up campsite using the fresh water faucet to rinse his sewer hose. The faucet and hose made contact. When I called him on it he looked up and said " mind your own busness". I came over when he was done and sanitized the faucet. He ignored me and my efforts. People are crazy

She might be the type who kisses her dog on the lips right after he drinks from the toilet.

Reminds me of a picture that was posted on another forum several years back from Fort Wilderness where someone had draped their sewer hose over the grill at a campsite, presumably to dry it or something. Imagine the next guy who slapped his burgers or dogs down on that grate, not knowing what had been laying there?
