 :sip: I drove past the camp on Monday morning after staying at Bulshoek, wanted to say hello to Wayne but decided against it. Glad I went past, could have had a bad experience with a guy that partied the night before. Even though we share the same surname.   :bueller: :3some:

I did say that the OP was my last say on the matter. In the interests of fairness, I will add that Wayne contacted me this evening and offered a myriad of reasons why they weren't open. His response included an offer of free accommodation. Thanks for his response. Offer not expected or necessary and won't be taken up. Best of luck to his endeavours, but I believe actions speak far louder than words.

Seems like some / most think that I was looking for opinions? Quite far off the mark - hence the use it / don't use it comment. There seems to be some confusion that I was at a loss for not having accommodation for the night - definitely not the case. I couldn't really care less about that - more than capable of looking after myself. What made me see red was standing there, listening to a conversation between die baas en die werker, within earshot,  that pretty much went along the lines of "tell him to go away, we're not opening today". I will not take that level of disdain, but I admit that we hold ourselves to different standards. Each to their own - I won't put up with that kind of kak.
Wait, what? His action of offering free accomodation was not loud enough? Or not louder than your words? :imaposer:

Jirre, Sam, don't be such an entitled drama queen. You live in Africa, toughen up. The man had no obligation to open up just for you, get over yourself.

In response to the OP. You sound like the current entitled youth and those HDI's that think the world owes you. There are numerous possible reasons that the man could not have come out and smile, shake your hand and explain why you could not be helped. I am sure he would have loved to assist considering the impact the Covid situation has put many in. I just love this attitude of " but you must" and " I am a customer therefor ... ". I get it that you where there and required accommodation that was not supplied but to turn disappointment to anger here seems a bit like a naughty child in a candy store tantrum.
Ride it like you stole it!

Whether the oke came out of the rabbit hole or not is not important to me in any way at all, BUT, to close up a camp because you hosted a party last night is quite pathetic.

Nama advertise, are quite well known, list and advertise themselves on google, therefore in these post-lockdown days, it's be normal to assume it would be open.  If the beds were all sold out it's be tough luck on the rider, but he might be able to get a refreshment of sort before moving on.

To open or close shop "somer net", sounds too much like a back-yard operation to me.

Let me tell you a story.

Years ago I managed a prestigious wine estate.
We held a big outdoor festival one Saturday evening. It went on until midnight.
Weeks before, I closed the estate for breakfast the Sunday, because I knew we would have to do a thorough clean-up before we could allow guests in.
We posted this on our website, our Facebook page and everywhere else.

Well, what happened, was that 7 o clock the Sunday morning, an entitled guest drove past the gate guard who explained to him that the estate was closed. Because he wanted to have breakfast in the restaurant. He saw the staff busy cleaning the premises, arrived at the restaurant, where the staff told him again the place was closed.

He ended up leaving in a blind fury and posted on Twitter, Facebook and Tripadvisor that we were the filthiest wine estate in the Cape and that we refused him service.

So: I FULLY understand why someone would close their establishment the day after a party.

You just cant please some people.

In Sam's case, he could hear the manager speak with the worker, so the manager could have come to speak to Sam himself. I suspect he was a bit "out of it" due to the bush-pub name his establishment seems to be gaining.

And most of you taking sides for bad service is the first to complain about Honda/Suzuki/KTM, etc not having good service. 8)

Many Years ago I was on my way from Zastron to Rhodes, along the way I was caught up in a Thunderstorm and fell my Arse off.
Made it into Rhodes on a limp at about 21,00hrs noticing a Man gesturing to pull in on the Right, which I did. Once I booked in he said: I heard you coming from afar and I said to my Wife, LISTEN, there is a decent Bike approaching, it is a V2. Maybe he did not hear you Sam.

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DAMN STRAIGHT!

Sam........... You are just digging yourself into a deeper hole. Let it go. Find peace and move on.

You are contravening Rule nr 5 of the rules of conduct. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=17927.msg286737#msg286737

.... and stop sending more members PMs trying to discredit me.  :deal:
(yes I know about the PM's)

I take complete offence to the fact that I did not receive a love letter from Sam!!!

Also finding this quite entertaining . Find myself jumping from one side to the other . On one hand if you are in this kind of industry in these hard times you should be stepping up . On the other hand a little bit of an over reaction , and not to accept a free night as an apology , mmmmm a bit childish.
