We overheard a quite heated argument between a mother and child..went something like this..

Mother: Chay! You have honestly embarrased me SO MUCH today! I am SO ANGRY! You know what? WE ARE NOT GOING CAMPING WITH CATHY AND JOHN NEXT WEEK!'

Kid: But muuum! I HATE YOU! I want to go! I want to go!!!!!

Mother: We are NOT STAYING HERE any longer! (at this point, she starts packing up the car with small items)

Kid: I'M GOING TO KILL MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mother: WHY wont you behave?? If you could just behave we can stay!!!!!

And it went on like this for some time.. they had left by the time we woke up in the morning.

A few years ago, my sons E and C (14 months apart in age and looking similar) had a conversation with third child outside my tent while I was in my tent with a cuppa.

Little girl - you two look the same..are you the same?

C - well, no...he likes eggs and I don't like eggs....

E - and he likes mushrooms and I don't like mushrooms

C - and he likes me but I don't like him!



and when I laughed I sprayed coffee over the inside of the tent.

Couldn't help thinking of this thread whilst we were away. Hubby decides to have a quick change into his swimming trunks in the tent & our 3 year old daughter squeals at the top of her voice "Daddy, I can see your willy" I was in hysterics then heard a group of people also giggling.

Not in the tent but in the toilets. My five year old H was in the next cubicle.

H : Mammy?
Me: Yes?
H: I love you.
Me: I love you too, H. ( Well what else could I say!)

I spent most of last weekend hissing at my teenagers. "Will you PLEASE stop swearing at each other, people can hear you!"

we took two female friends camping several years ago, their first, and last time

after a couple of hours wingeing in our tent i suggested we all got an early night

8am the following morning from the tent next door, one of them screams (as a newbie didn't consider volume or condensation)

"I'm all wet"

was a very small site and the rest of the day our neighbours shot us very weird looks!

luckily they left after the first night and checked into a B&B

Resurrecting this thread to share the latest gem that I overheard...

From the small boy in the tent next to us:

'Urgh, Dad's just given Mum a wet willy!'

Turns out, according to the embarrassed parents, that this means to lick your finger and then stick it into someone's ear. Not sure the rest of the campsite got that though...

Was once having a shower and overheard two young kids conversation about how unhappy they were about having to have a shower.
One said "Well your not here mum so this is going to be a really sh*t shower"
Couldn't help but laugh out loud.

Not overheard conversations, but there is always a really loud snorer on the site we stay at every summer and I always get the giggles as we walk past to the toilets. Hubby nudges me to shush, but that makes me worse, then he starts laughing!

Not camping but quite a few years ago 4 of us went on a New Years Eve Gala Dinner on a Ferry to St Malo.

There was supposed to be a 5 course meal on board but the weather was that rough that after 2 hours they had still not served the main course and stopped serving altogether as it was too dangerous for the waiters.

Everytime you turned around there was less people still in the restaurant.

Next day after looking around St Malo we got back on the ship and went down to the cinema ..... there was 3 young ladies on the way out as we went in and one said to the others

"You know, that was the first year in quite a few I have been sober on New Years Eve ..... and I was still throwing up all over"

Made us laugh ... the whole of the ship had been littered with people feeling and being bad all night ...

best one for us was a few years back, a family pitched beside us had a father/grand father in a pup tent with their dog that had a females name (lets call it Mildred for the sake of the story) that arrived a few days after they had settled in.

The first night (before we knew it was just him and the dog in the tent) we heard him get out small hours of the morning (to go to the toilet) and on arrival` back at the tent he was loudly whispering 'Mildred will you get off!' 'I'm trying to sleep you need to get off' etc. I had a giggle to myself that night and again when I told him what we had heard when it was apparent the dog had jumped into his warm bed when he left for the toilet.
