Another Funny Vacation Story…And An Important Lesson As Well

» by in: humor

Last week I told you about my son staying home while the rest of the family went on vacation. This morning I ran into a friend and related the story to her knowing that she would get a good laugh from it.

After her laugh, she told me that her family had also just returned from vacation. She also had a humorous story to tell and I thought I would pass it on to you.

Almost everyone has one of the those friends that has been blessed by the material god and has everything; beautiful house, gorgeous yard, highest tech electronics, the newest innovations in appliances, nearly new cars, etc. etc.

If you don’t have one of these friends, you probably are that friend.

So this friend of mine, normally very organized, somehow forgot to secure the hot tub cover on their outdoor jacuzzi. At some point a group of neighborhood teens had thought it would be fun to sneak an illegal dip into my friend’s hot tub.

She’s not sure which kids it was but as they live in a close knit community she’s pretty sure she knows them or their parents. Anyway, either the teens didn’t bother putting the cover back on at all or animals somehow knocked it off. All my friend knows for sure is that raccoons had been using the water in the jacuzzi for drinking, swimming, washing food, whatever.

How doesn’t she know this? Because when she and her family arrived home, they found a family of raccoons surrounding her hot tub! The funnest thing is that one of them was floating around on his back as if he was taking his own vacation! Needless to say I’m sure next time they leave on vacation, she will make sure the hot tub cover is secure.

The way she told this story had me laughing hard enough to make my face turn red. Do you have a funny vacation story that you would like to share?
