Living with the Presidente.

A tongue in cheek account of living with the Presidente, OR how to survive and extended 'family' of 183.

Inflatable................what does it mean????
23 June 2008 @ 00:57

There are three notices in the pool area and the all say...............'NO INFLATABLES'.

El Presidente was 'pottering' in amongst the pretty bushes and flowers around the pool area yesterday when a four foot dinghy ( with oars ) arrived in the pool.

Erm, have you seen the notices, he asked the dinghy crew of two adults and two kids.
 'What notices', was the reply.
 So El Presidente pointed out the 'NO INFLATABLE' notices.
 'But this is a boat mate',
 It's an inflatable boat says El Presidente. 
'No, mate, it's a dinghy, I know you can't have lilos in here but this is a dinghy, mate'.
Did you blow it up, asks El Presidente.
'Course I f****** did, mate'.
Well then, it's an inflatable says El Presidente.
'No mate, it's an f****** dinghy'.

Next time I go in our pool ( which is only small ) I shall take my darning needle and the dinghy ( and any other inflatable ) will go 'POP'.

Nothing surprises me about folk these days.... they assume that just because they have paid their rent they can do whatever they want and their rental covers any damage they may do!!!

My wife has a policy in the summer of collecting all the inflatables up that have been left in the pool and moving them with a pin to a rubbish bin on the community. it never ceases to amaze us how many replacements appear the next day....and the next....and the next.
If they cannot be bothered to take them away they lose them on our complex.
Inflatables are a real issue for everyone, you'll never win, if there are to many in the pool, we just flip them onto the side of the pool and the wind and the sharp twigs seem to do the rest.
Spain is all about relaxing and living a nice life......forget the confrontation with the lager filled bucket and spade brigade, they will be gone in another few days. Make a note of the apartment number and drop the owner a line saying their guests are totally ignoring the community rules and can they ensure it doesnt happen again.....alternativly unhook the satellite in the apartment and watch their holiday gown downhill from there.
