Sailors often demean those who have never been to the sea or on a sailboat. There is friction when these two worlds rub shoulders but to say there is equal animosity between the sailor and his land bound cousin wouldn’t be correct. It’s the sailor who has the problem. When we are not afforded the respect we think we deserve our feelings get hurt.
Get over it. I don’t think these folks have a clue how they come across to us, and I’m not sure they would care. So pour another rum, raise up the mainsail, and unfurl the jib! Be thankful you aren’t part of that world and move on. Literally.
After all, we can leave on our magic carpet and they cannot.
