10 Things Of What Not To Do While On Vacation

Since there was no one that was seriously injured, that permanently lost valuables, or were arrested, then I thought I would put a list of 10 things we did, but that you should avoid doing, while on vacation.  In no particular order:

1) Misplace Yourself- That is, losing your phone with your much needed drivers license in its case

2) Forceable Entry- Walking into a closed balcony screen door (though it did look open to all of us)

3) Test TSA- Have fluids of more than 3 ounces in your carry-on luggage

4) Act Crazy- Wave arms wildly in balcony doorway because you think there might be a closed screen

5) Forget Sea Legs- Get sea sick on a beautiful boat tour

6) Stiff The Waitress- Walk away without paying for your meal cause you want to take a stroll down by the ocean (4 people at meal zero people thought about having to pay)

7) Test Theory of What Goes Up Must Come Down- Fall down backwards on escalator stairs – because you will never make it to the bottom

8) Think It’s Just Swimmers Ear- Get a double ear infection and have over 10hrs of flying to do

9) Wear Nice Clothes to the Beach- Think you can backpedal in sand faster than the wave coming towards you and the beach

10) Act Like A Fish- Try to breathe through your nose while snorkling, which causes you to panic and make you think you are going to drown. So you pop your head up above the water to breath, because you can’t remember all you have to do is breathe through the tube in your mouth. Once your head is up you once again go to breathe in and out of your nose but forgetting you still have the googles on. That causes you, for a second, to flop around like a fish out of water wondering to yourself, “what the hell is going on?” You finally come to enough sense and pull the tube out of your mouth and take a deep breath. You look around to see if anyone noticed and hope like heck they didn’t. Once you are all clear you start to snorkle like nothing happened. Later you ask your wife why she didn’t snorkle, and she tells you because she wasn’t going to look like the fool you did in the water! Oh yeah, she saw you!



  1. Toatally good advice, but did you get a monster of a sun burn?

  2. I have laughed until tears rolled down my cheeks. What a great summary of our vacation don’ts. I’m glad you didn’t tell who did what…. except for number 10. LMAO.

  3. Actually nobody got majorly burned. Some mind redness that went away in a few days and my dad had a moderate sunburn but only on his feet of all places!

    • *mild redness…lol
