Default First disagreement with a cc warden

Ok. Up until today I have thought that some criticism of CC wardens etc was harsh. Still must say though a lot of them are really good. Arrived at a site today and, unusually for me, hadn't topped up before leaving the previous site do decided to top up the water. Looked at the site map along with SWMBO and decided that to go to the MH point and fill up with the short hose would break their one way system rules. Driving round looking for a pitch. We spotted one of the other water points and parked up. The warden was straight over."the MH point is over there. This is for filling aqua rolls only" . I asked him to show me. So he did . I then explained to him that if I went to the MH point and followed the one way system I would need the bigger hose where at the point I am parked at I only need the short hose which is more convenient. I also pointed out that the point I was parked at was not blocking anyone's access and I would only be 5 minutes. He grumbled that I should be at the MH point. I ignored him. SWMBO even commented on him when I got back in. First funny one we have come across. We now know they do walk among us. We were thinking of staying two nights but have decided to head to a forest site tomorrow instead. I'll top up and empty before leaving though............

Had a similar conversation with a warden on a CC site in Scotland.

Rules are rules, but sometimes they are pointless impracticable and plain stupid.

Perhaps we are just missing something!

That's what I thought and why I ignored him. No sense at all. I bet if I. Had gone to the MH point against the one way system he would have had something to say as well.

I've only ever had one problem with a warden.

It was on a C & CC site, I was told which pitch to go on (as they do - don't like that, but hey) but the previous occupants were still packing up 2 hours after the 12 noon deadline.

I had to wait..and wait..and wait. The warden wasn't at all bothered! I had two hot & bothered dogs tied to a tree and my van marooned on the site road for an hour. Grrr...
