When they ask if they can borrow your bike every day because they forgot to bring one

When they keep bringing home "new friends" & drain the camp bar that they didn't contribute to!

When their creme brulee doesn't give a satisfying CRACK when rapped with my dessert spoon.

what about the LEECH - you know the one - eats all the food thats prepared, makes messes, showers for 15 minutes every day, grabs bottles and mixes huge drinks, is loud and inappropriate and doesnt lift a finger to help out anywhere. -

definately gets you booted.

When they know your camp is specifically no smoking and light up a bowl anyway because it isn't a cigarette.

LOL AntiM... we had some ppl visiting our loft a while back that did the same thing. Our building is non-smoking. A guest asked us if we minded that they smoked. We said sorry, it's a non-smoking building. Said guest then proceeds to break out their pipe and pot like we'd just given him the go-ahead. Then when we pointed out that the building was non-smoking regardless of what's being smoked, he actually asked me if it would be cool to smoke in the bathroom then....

This guy in our camp did me one better... he borrowed my antique Raleigh Twenty and left it on the other side of the playa. Then he didn't bother to go back and get it. By the time I got fed up and went to retrieve it myself, it was gone.

Man, this still makes me mad! Why did I forgive him for this?

Keep an eye out for a folding model of the one seen below with a Hans Ohrt Bicycles plaque on it. Luckily I had a pair of them so one is returning to the playa for it's 7th burn.

Hmmm, set the wayback machine...

Ernies list of sins:

Didn't have a ticket, or enough money to buy one, so had to bum money of others at the gate.
Peed in the corner of the kitchen tent.
Washed his feet in the dishwater.
Didn't have enough water, was told to buy more at the K-falls stop & didn't, then stole water from others in camp; would grab a gallon, wander off, come back an hour later with no water cause he forgot it somewhere, and grab another gallon.

Booted his ass out 1.5 days into the event and did not give him a ride back. We actually did abandon this asshat in the desert, and if he had died I would not have been sad in the slightest.

When he helps himself to your beer because he didn't have room in his car for that "last cooler", And you find out later that day, he lied to you and he isn't 21.

Granted this was not at Burning Man, it was hiking, but ... uses the last of your fresh drinking water to rinse their tee shirt.

When a very cool person replies 4-5 mornings in a row " Did I do/say that?? I don't remember that"

Were done with this person... I kills me inside to have to deal with this later, but if this person gets clean and sober soon and has time to heal, then things may change.. We can only hope... :? :? :?

how about if they're just vastly annoying but haven't committed any "crimes"?

"we just don't like you... yes, all of us... and you're scaring our guests" just doesn't roll off the tongue.

sometimes that "radical acceptance" thing can be a huge challenge.

Creme Brulee Camp! Fucking AWESOME. Thanks for the idea. I love making creme brulee.

Oh, um, back on topic. We had someone who, when told his kitchen water would have to be filtered before being dumped into the evap pond, decided to just dump it onto the playa instead.

OK, gotta relate this one: A good friend from another camp comes up Sunday evening and asks if a lady from his camp can come and fix cheese & chicken quesadillas on my stove. He has this strained please? please? pleading look as if to say 'please get her out of my camp for this'...red flag...but I say OK.

Soon they come back, and this nice woman gets right at it...pulls out a huge block of cheese, chops it up all over the counter...turns out she also has exactly 2 tortillas and a whole bag of uncooked chicken legs/wings.

"Oh, here lets cook all the chicken, and do you have any noodles? We can make mac and cheese with the chicken!" she says. I get her a pot and convince her to just boil all the bird parts (there's like less than an hour and everyone wants to go out to the temple burn). I go outside to get my friend and a couple other guests some chairs and drinks, then go back to check on the cook...

The chicken is leaking reddish water out of its bag into the cheese pile..."oh this is not good!" I say, trying to clean up and dump the chicken into the pot. Meanwhile the 'cook' has put a whole package of spaghetti I found her into a smaller two quart pan of water...its sticking out all over, no room to boil. Egads.

Everyone splits the one cheese quesadilla (I hope the cooking killed off any chicken juice bugs) and I go check on the cook again...she's trying to stir all 32 ounces of cheese into the pan of clumped up spaghetti...cheese on the stove, on the floor...

The chicken meanwhile has been boiling away for 15 minutes now. It gets dumped into a skillet and coated with BBQ and hot sauce. Whew. Done, and quite good even. The clumpy mac&cheese gets shared around, I send the cook off with a big container of leftovers, and at least as far as I know everyone survived. The stove still has not been cleaned up. The kitchen no longer accepts 'guest' cooks : )

(oh and I had a "pee-on-the-tire" guy next to me too...he was all like 'what's the problem??' when asked to please walk the 200 feet to the porta potties...twit)
