All bottled up! A hilarious story of an RVing newbie…

Steve Korsvall posted this hilarious story on our RV Advice Facebook page. We’re sure you’ll chuckle as much as we did.

Here’s what he wrote: “We were jetting out the holding tanks of a 5th wheel of a guy that just got this RV six months earlier. He complained it was compacted. Well, in cleaning it, all of a sudden a 6 oz. bottle comes out with the cap still on it. I said to this new-to-RV-camping person. ‘What is this bottle doing in your tank?’ He said with a straight face, ‘Well, the salesman told me to put the whole bottle into the tank.’
For you newbies out there…
Take bottle out of box. Take cap off bottle. Pour contents of bottle into tank and throw bottle into trash can…
Happy trails”

Oh dear… if the person Steve was writing about is reading this right now, we’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you (right??).

Remember when your cars owners manual instructed you on how to adjust the valves? Now it instructs you to NOT drink the contents of the battery!!! SCARY!!!

One of my favorite tests for managers is to put a bagged loaf of bread, jar of peanut butter, jar of jelly, knife, and plate in front of myself. I tell them to instruct me on making a sandwich. First answer is almost always, “Put peanut butter and jelly on the bread.” The shock of me placing the jars on the loaf is my favorite reaction. If people like that weren’t out there, I wouldn’t teach the lesson.

In the grocery store, “paper or plastic?” Tell them it does not matter, as you are bi-sacksual!

Haha! Not as good as the couple who sued because no one told them that contraceptive jelly was not used on toast!

Sort of like the story of the guy who goes to the doctor and is given a prescription in suppository form. At his next appointment the doctor asks how the medication is working. “Not at all”, the guy says, ” For all the good they did I might as well stuck them up my butt”

Despite signs in restrooms saying what not to flush down the toilet, some people are embarrassed to put stuff in the trash cans. I bet plumbers have some interesting stories.

Yep. Ask any college dormitory maintenance crew. You can find ANYTHING in a toilet. Craziest: had to pull the toilet to try to unplug, could not. Took hammer to toilet and busted it to pieces to see what was happening. Cornish Game Hen! Can’t, and didn’t, make that up.

We were in Monterey CA. when a guy back in beside me. Two men get out one about 30yrs and one about 50 ish.
I am setting up my sewer hose on the Sidewinder sewer hose supports. The young guy watches me set it up then says what is that for and the old guy said Poop doesn’t flow up hill.

True or not, everything going on considering, I take the good laugh X2 with Dan’s comment!

That’s twice this week that I came near wetting myself! The first was when the clerk at the grocery ask this little lady if she wanted her milk in a bag and she straight faced said “ no thank you, it’s handier if you just leave it in the bottle”! You can bet I’m going to use that line very next time I buy milk.

Most bottles clearly state to open and pour contents into the tank. He doesn’t read, apparently.

common sense, if you need to read instructions with every new idea you should not be driving.

Probably a millennial who was playing games on his cell phone when information like that was being talked about.

As the contents are usually “safe to use”, most bottles also say to recycle, clearly not of a concern by this author.

Very simple, it is a cute story but I do not believe it is true.

I believe it is true. Why do people need to be told what coffee is, milk contains milk, nuts contain nuts. You can’t teach people common sense if they weren’t born with it.

They were born with common sense but our educators are taking common sense out and replacing it with book learning. It’s much like “boot camp” in the military, the first month is spent deprogramming the civilian crap you’ve learned all your 18 years so they can reprogram the military crap into your brain.

Nope … we’re laughing AT him! What he did (supposedly) is not even an adult logical thing to do. And he has a DRIVER’S LICENSE?! 😲Yikes!

And he’s probably able to reproduce, maybe his mate is blessed with a 10 oz can of common sense. This is a classic example of a college educated idiot.

So those of us that have a college education are idiots? I resent that and do not represent that AT ALL!

Jesse Crouse

Having a college education doesn’t mean you will be an idiot, but it does not preclude it. Not having a college education is the same. However having a normal actual real life education usually does. such as- Read directions on box-take bottle out of box-take cap off bottle- empty contents into tank. “Can’t change STUPID. Only what STUPID does”. This from a college educated, self-employed Plumber with 53 years of real life work experience.
