The Miserable Bastards Thread

Post by asthmatic camel » Sun Mar 24, 2019 6:05 am

Feel free to nominate your favourite miserable bastards here. :)

I'd like to nominate Old Man Cooper, owner of Coopers Campsite, Edale.

This guy is absolutely rolling in money, owning both a large working farm and a huge camping/caravan site in one of the UK's most beautiful and popular places, right at the beginning of the Pennine Way. The man has everything, including a very charming and polite wife yet is, without doubt, one of the most miserable bastards I have ever encountered. Woe betide you should you knock on his door and offer to give him your money, he takes that as a personal affront! He much prefers to collect it personally at 5.30 am, when any sensible camper is trying to sleep off the effects of last night's wonderful ale and food consumed at the delightful Old Nag's Head. Fancy a shower? At the height of Summer, water temperatures just about manage break freezing point and I'd highly recommend taking your own toilet paper, as that supplied, (if there is any), is akin to coarse grit sandpaper.

A man to be admired! :)
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

and what the fuck are you doing sleeping on the ground? How old are you anyway, 15? Shit, even so, my kids at that age, when told we were going somewhere, thought to ask "How many stars is the lodging, Pater?"

Jesus Christ, grow up. Cows sleep on the ground, not humans.

Fancy an Englishman of all people complaining of cold showers.

Cold showers played an important role in building the English character.

Cold showers may even be said to have won The Battle of Britain. :)
