Scary experience at yosemitepinesrv.

Filed under: Uncategorized — neosurya @ 12:21

We had just checked in into our cabin at Yosemite ( after a long trek, and we find water barely trickling in our bathroom and the kitchen. A few minutes later, there is no water. We were six adults and two toddlers aged about a year and half. All needed to use the bathroom and we needed the kitchen water to make food. There were two guys working on some water pipes next to our cabin. We figured they could tell us what to do, and asked them about the water (Very politely). One of the guys says that the hot water heater was needing some fixing and suggests that we use a tap outside the cabin for water. Hmmm…. So, how do we use the damn bathrooms…. I discuss with other folks, come out and request (Politely, again) that he need not fix the heater and could just give us cold water for an hour. One of the guys gets violent with us and says that he would beat us up if we ask questions about the water supply. No bones broken, but some very serious threats were given. There was a more elderly chap who remained sane, but did little to stop his colleague’s belligerence.

Most of us were quite shaken. Some of us contemplated calling 911, but we felt that the guy just blew off due to stress. It was a different matter that he should not have shown his workplace stress on us. We tried to reach the management, but the after hours number that they had advertised went to an answering machine. The water eventually came, we spent the night and checked out the next day. We wanted to pack up and leave the same night, but could not depart with two kids in diapers crying for food. And at 9:00 PM in the busy May night, finding a place to stay in Yosemite would have been well neigh impossible. The RV park seems to be quite popular, and this was probably a one off disgruntled employee. But it was very unpleasant and disrupted our plans.
