nasty fisherman

i was asking a fisherman on mersea island yesterday if he knew where to fuel up near,
what a obnoxius piece of work,
words to the effect of why bothering me. fuel here is only for us "experts" not you day trippers...blah blah blah. i moved on.
i think he looked a bit of a iidiot in front of his mate.
i only asked a polite simple question. made me wonder though what would this "person" do if you need his help out in the drink

You should have spun circles around his boat at high speed to rock his world, that's what we do here in Trump country to idiots like that..

>>>asking a fisherman on mersea island

Funnily enough being a polite non-confrontational type of guy I'm used to asking the locals from Scotland to Devon this or that and receiving a helpful answer.

But twice in different years at the end of the Mersea pontoon I've asked a trip boat for some info... just chatter nothing to spoil their business or give local secrets away... to receive a terse "No idea" when they plainly would have known the answer.

Perhaps on busy weekends when you can hardly move or bring a boat in for parents and kids crabbing along the pontoon they just can't be kind to someone with a blow up boat and shiny outboard??

nasty firshermen

i wouldnt dream of disturbing someone if they looked busy at thier work etc etc.
i was very polite to this "person" and was asking a civil question
it was a tuesday morning in november so hardly the middle of the tourist season.
but i am not the only one i hear.
anyway no big deal i have moved on.
thanks to all for your replys
