‘Shoobie Tuesday will not be tolerated on Brigantine Beach and is banned, effective immediately. Anybody bad-mouthing our valued visitors & 2nd home owners will be shunned. Grumpy old drunks posting negative comments on Facebook will also be dealt with accordingly.’ (satire)
Kinda wish those statements came from someone with some power. But hey, we wanted to throw that out there.
Here’s a related comment we just received from “Lisa in PA”.
We rent a house in Brigantine every year for a week. We have been doing this since our children were very small. We put several thousand dollars of our hard earned money into your town every year.
After we returned from our vacation in 2011, I saw some Brigantine sites on Facebook and “Liked” or “Joined” them because I really love it there…and that’s where it happened. It was a bunch of locals calling people like us “Shoobies” and telling us to go home. The remarks made about people who vacation there turned my stomach.
And you seemed so friendly! We did not come back in 2012.
If you want to make some extra money…maybe you should keep your people in check and remember where a lot of your money comes from. Too bad. It was my favorite little town and really looked forward to going there every year.
Thankfully, this kind of nonsense is on the decline in Brigantine.
That very small, but vocal group of town idiots would like to have Brigantine return to 1972.
Just in case you missed it, read about our Brigantine FOOT incident a few years back. Funny how some acted as if it was no big deal.
