DM – Passengers on board the stranded Carnival cruise ship are reaching breaking point as conditions become so hellish that they are forced to go to the bathroom in plastic baggies while many are becoming physically sick due to the stench of human waste. Travelers are using what limited cell phone coverage they have today to call their families and are reporting overflowing toilets, unbearable smells and scarce food supplies. The conditions on the Carnival Triumph are causing particular problems for the elderly and the disabled. The vessel is crawling towards Mobile, Alabama after becoming stranded in the Gulf of Mexico because of an engine fire.
Listen I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a vacation snob. An absolute vacation snob. Like you know the tagline of this company I started? “By the common man for the common man”? Well it’s total and complete bullshit when it comes to me going on vacation. (and eating at restaurants too for that matter) I won’t slum it. I’d rather not even go outside if commoners and kids are going to be around me. I’m the type of guy that when somebody says they are staying at a timeshare I smile and say that’s nice but I’m snickering as hard as I can snicker behind your back.
Anyway with all this stranded carnival ship talk dominating the news lately I can’t help but wonder who goes on these things anyway? I mean cruises are only for white trash people right? Like I know when I’m on vacation and a cruise ship docks I run the other way. I don’t want to be associating with “Cruise People” and their gift shop tshirts. Now I’m sure this blog is probably insulting to lots of people. I’m sure lots of Stoolies go on cruises and all inclusive resorts and shit. Well guess what? You’re probably white trash and you don’t even know it. Seriously the way they are describing the conditions on this Carnival Ship is exactly how I expect a cruise ship to be when it is running at full speed. Just kids, puke and shit everywhere. Count me out. I’ll see you fools in St. Barths in March. Mogul style for days.
PS – As an addendum being in college obviously doesn’t count. You’re expected to vacation like white trash till you’re 24 and then you got to step that shit up
