Just got back home from our Christmas Break, we were at Yamba
on the N S W North Coast,
we have been there several times over the past couple of years,
while we were there my wife was unlucky enough to get a Foot
Infection, the type one gets from Bacteria in the Showers, we usually
use the Van Shower, but owing to lack of Sullage Points, we decided
to do the right thing and not let the Waste Water flow over the
ground, as it was we allready had the Kitchen Sink Waste Water
flowing over the ground, any way she was using the Van Park
Showers, doing the wearing the Thongs in the shower bit ect,
we decided to leave a couple of days earlier, so she could get
treatment for the condition at home, while we were packing up
one of the owners of the van park commented to us that we
were leaving and asked why, we mentioned the foot infection that
she might have got from the Showers, shortly after that, we were
told not to ever come back to that Caravan Park, as we were
trouble makers, and we were spreading lies, the funny thing is, my
wife only mentioned it to a close friend, they call it the silly season
but this takes the cake.

If they have that attitude towards their customers, would you really want to go back anyway.

Sounds like a park to avoid in more ways than one.

Hey Footy

Yes mate, the current owners have a policy of See No Evil Speak No
Evil, and get rid of the Evidence, even if its a Customers Foot lol lol.
I reckon we got out of there before a Epidemic Started, I know a
Council Health Inspector down there that will have a field day next
week, also a Enviromental Officer that will have a close look at
things.

Daza, don't take it to heart mate. Even I've been thrown out of a servo...long story. I was very angry, as I'd never been thrown out of anywhere in my life before! So I decideed to get even, much like yourselves. There's more than one way to skin a rabbit.
Net results were quite pleasing but I've never been back.

Hi Willem

Some times it's part of the Hazards of travelling when you pick up
things,in those sorts of enviroments, but when you are accused
of being a lying trouble maker, I will turn into a Mongrel when it
comes to pay back, I might be an Old Fart lol lol, but can still
educate them on the ways people should be treated.

Hi Daza,
Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet up with you guys when Mark dropped into see you. One day we'll catch up somewhere.
That's not good news about the Cook's foot.
I believe that management has just changed hands at the park.
I know a bloke that use to work there, I caught up with him in November, He said every thing was fine.The other day I heard he got sacked for something that he had nothing to do with. Word has it that their not well liked in town and word is spreading about their attitude towards their customers..

Sorry to hear that it ended on a sour note.

Hi Peter

At this stage I can't give the name of the Caravan Park, as they are
the type of people that would prefer to Spend a lot of money on
Law Suits rather than on there Facilities, plus there are a few
people on this site that would contact the owners just for the hell
of it.

I agree - you have to have both sides to the story. But the post above says a lot. You will find that word of mouth carried by tourists and our wonderful grey nomads nearly always has some evidence of truth to it. Some people just should not be in business and they never stay in it for long. Cheers Tony.

I am not a negative person Tony. You have said something that has no "shown" evidence so others will believe. I am not saying it didn't happen, I just disagree with your way of doing things...in an open forum without right of reply from the other party.

You have criticised a business in this forum, again with no evidence, and tarnished their name without letting them say their side of the story. I think it is only fair that these people get to tell their story, but unless they are on this forum, they will never do so, so stuff the old story of Innocent until proven guilty.

I could just imagine our Courts of Law if we only told one side of the story...bloody hell mate, everyone would be in gaol :-)

Let's believe EVERYTHING that EVERYONE tells us...what a way to live.

Good luck with your next park Tony

Must have missed something somewhere. Can't see anywhere that Daza has named the CP in question. Good on you Daza for reminding us about those nastys that lurk in CP showers.

Hahaha...yeah right, I own a caravan Park....I wish I did.

I will leave my thoughts the same...you should not believe everything you hear. You can, but you will end up an ill-informed individual. But if that is what you require in life, then off you go mate. Be a Lemming and follow the others.

Enjoy your travels. I am not hear for an argument, just putting my thoughts forward.

Hang on...a space ship just landed in Sydney Botanic Gardens...quick off you go and check it out. let me know what it is like when you get there.

Daza,
Any reasonable person would, I believe, accept that you have related your experience in a reasonable and forthright manner and without identifying the park.

To suggest otherwise does, I suggest, put the onus on your accusers to do exactly what they accuse you of having done.

That is, put up evidence that your post has done harm to a business.

Ian.

Dunco,
I wouldn't call it Whinging.
Daza has a legitimate complaint, he speaks to the Owners/Management and they don't want to know about.
He posts here to bring to our attention a bad experience he and his wife have gone through, without defaming or naming names.
I believe that Daza has done nothing wrong, in fact if it were I, I would probably have an assault charge hanging over my head if a CP owner or Manager said what they said to Daza, to me.

I guess its like the 'Poo in Ice cream'
Why would someone put them selves through public scrutiny if it isn't true.
I think your way off the mark for calling it whinging.

Dunco, If this happened to your wife or family member how would you of handled this same treatment from the CP? Just curious.

And this is called Trolling.
'Because blokes like you keep biting Mark G :-) '

Are you for real mate ?

If I have a problem in life I deal with it then and there. I don't go off whinging and whining to all and sundry to get them to feel sorry for me...because that is all it is when you don't name and shame.

Get real mate !!!

How many things have happened in YOUR life that has upset you....and have you winged to everyone on a forum about it. get on with life and stop whinging for sh7t sake

Oh please feel sorry for me....I was kicked out of somewhere for NO REASON

I wish that is all that has happened to me in my life...hahaha
