Re: Is it just me
Not to be sexist but my only occurrences of bad behavior in the Smokies have been encounters with the females. One was a pair of college age students who had lawn chairs sitting in the middle of the stream to sun who unleashed a verbal barrage of four lettered words when I had the audacity to question it. The second was a lady that threw a Mc*******s bag down next to LR that her kids had just finished off. When I remarked that it was littering, her response was "that's why we have park employees". You are right about dating your age. If I had pulled either response when I was younger, my dad would have made sure I had a cauliflower ear to show for. It is unfortunate that the lack of respect crosses not only genders but also generations.
