It's nice to have pool parties to go to when it's averaging 92 this weekend. Yesterday, our friend Wayne had people over to his apartment complex. While it was painfully obvious to me that it wasn't a private event, some of the attendees acted like it was. Wayne wasn't the only one in the 12 unit building to have friends and family over to use the complex pool on a hot day. One guy was in the pool with his kid, a group of girls were drinking Mimosas, and one girl had her parents over. I already felt bad that the 30 of us that Wayne had over were dominating the grill and picnic table. It started to get out of hand when one friend decided to "pants" another, pulling his shorts down from behind. Luckily the kid who was there didn't see, but I was embarrassed by it. I like Wayne, and I want to be able to go over to his pool again, so I don't want his neighbors complaining about bad behavior. I love a good joke, but the immaturity level was out of control. Most of the bad behavior was one or two guys, one of which is a really good friend, so I wanted to ring the guy's neck by the end of the afternoon. What's OK at a private pool in someone's backyard is NOT OK in mixed company at someone's apartment complex.

I'm so over that kind of shit, especially when I hear people defend it by saying it's a double standard. As if someone pulling off a woman's bikini top in front of kids has ever been acceptable.

I'm over it too. Gay or Bear isn't an excuse to be perpetually 17.

If these folks are real good friends, it would have been acceptable for you to mention this is not a private pool and others are trying to enjoy themselves, so lets keep it down. Or mention to the host that a word might be needed.

Howdy! Thanks for stopping and commenting. So, a little about me: I'm not shy. I swam right over to the pantser and called him on the carpet about it. He then proceeded to pout, and tell people he was in trouble for what he had done. I don't like having to be "the adult", but I'll do it if someone doesn't know it.

It may not be the fun thing to do, but it is nice when an adult steps up. ;-{) so go on you.

I can hear your frustration. I would have been appalled. As you've said, it wasn't a private party, so Wayne should have stepped up and told the those misbehaving to shape up or ship out.

It wouldn't have happened at my apartment community, as he would never have been allowed so many guests in the first place. I wouldn't be surprised if Wayne gets a lease violation.

There's no excuse for immature behavior.

Hopefully, next time they will be more judgment exhibited by those attending.

You're a great person to talk to about this, because you have an inside perspective visa-vie what's typically allowed. I don't know, as it is only a 12 unit building, L shaped, built around a pool. The pool was average, but not huge, and I actually felt bad regarding how many of us Wayne had over. I would not have invited that many people on a day when the pool would be busy. Most of us were very respectful, and sharing our coolers and ice with other residents.

As far as Wayne goes, he's very outgoing, but not confrontational, and was busy getting his drink on, so I would not be surprised if he gets told off for not controlling his guests. How many guests can your residents have for such events?

Unless they are renting the party room (which is a question of rental fees and deposit), the most guests he could bring with him to our pool would be three. We have the largest privately owned swimming pool in the state. On a hot day, there can be 200 people out there and there's no lifeguard.

We kicked a woman out of the pool on Friday when she decided to swim in her bra and panties:) There are no drinks or food allowed around the pool. Wayne's probably okay as it's such a small apartment community, but he should exercise better judgment if he likes living there. Such behavior wouldn't be tolerated in a large apartment community.
