He's complaining about everything while living there, unnecessarily, for 4 months a year.

So...  Who cares what size the portions are if the food is inedible.

Basically a very old joke.  Complaining about how awful something is, but then going on to (1) as in OP, live in the place, several months of the year, (2) complain you are not getting enough.

Sorry.

Don't be sorry.  It was a good joke and relevant to the thread.  I was just a bit slow on the pickup.

FWIW, Midnight Kitty, I have found Hawaii to be the most wonderful place on Earth: climate, scenery, people, food. Nowhere better. I have no idea what your fool was talking about.
Now our mom says she's changed her mind about the devil's brood, they may be evil so she thinks, but at least they're never rude...

Mahalo, Morticia.  We say, "Lucky live Hawai'i."  (and we hug a lot ;-)

I'm so jealous.  My friend's friend just moved there last fall when she got married (I believe her husband is in the Army).  I would LOVE to visit Hawaii!  I hear it is even more $$$ than living here in CA though.

I too find it funny that he hates Hawaii so much and yet visits so often.  It must not be that bad!!

I wonder if it is expected in his social set.  Or if he thinks it's expected.

I would also guess that he spends time there wanting it to be 40 years or so ago when it was less crowded and really was exotic.

Hawaii drove my father (the herpetologist) nuts; all that lush tropical growth and no snakes or lizards. He did love getting to see the green sea turtles basking at the Black Sand Beach on the Big Island, though.

I have seen lizards in Maui, so they definitely have those.  No snakes, though.

There's one native species of lizard, apparently; the rest are exotic.

I've heard it's beautiful in Hawaii.  Very pricey but very beautiful.  A friend's parents vacationed there for a few weeks and she said they didn't want to come home.  It had been so rainy and cool here when they returned that I don't blame them! LOL!

We have a friend who is the "lizard guy" here on Oahu.  There are lots of "exotic" lizards: Jackson's Chameleons are probably the most common after the gecko.

This guy stays in a studio apartment in a highrise in Waikiki, with a swimming pool, jacuzzi and rooftop recreation deck, and he's complaining? What is wrong with this guy? Also, if he hates it so much, why does he keep coming back? Some people just have to be miserable... ::)

Yeah! Really! I have to live here, 24/7, 365 days/year, and I tolerate it somehow. >:D

(every day we say "lucky live Hawai'i" and thank our lucky stars that we can pay the mortgage and still buy food)
