to think "my pool, my rules"

We have a swimming pool in the garden. The garden has high fences and is not overlooked. When I have guests I will wear both halves of a bikini, when I am alone, I am happy to leave the top off and sometimes not to bother at all. My attitude is "my pool, my rules" and as long as I am not subjecting anyone else to my attire or lack of it to think that this is my business. Besides, I hate the feel of a wet swimming costume if I can avoid it.

Swimming pool fetish?

Is that a thing?

Honey let's have a go...

AIBU to boast about my pool?


Now you do the YANBU bit

It's probably just a paddling pool...

Is it really a pool or the neighbour's koi pond?

I despair of AIBU FFS sake people don't even try anymore.

If I had a pool I'd by like

Hah! I totes have a pool and you probably don't AIBU to point out its really hot today?

And no nudity required.

Air out your clunge!

Oh I'm disappointed. I thought this was going to be a more assertive version of that thread years ago about the next door neighbour who wouldn't stop using the pool. I remember it fondly as being the height of unreasonableness on the part of the neighbour and politely masked oozing resentment by the pool owner.

Does your DH wear a mankini or is that not in the rules?

Can I come over for a swim? I don't care if you're completely starkers if that helps at all.

I have the same dilemma when swimming off my yacht.

apermanentheadache Fri 18-Jul-14 20:44:13

Oi think you'll fin oi am considerably richer than yaaw, and I have bigger bosoms too. I demand a pool-off.

Definitely not a stealth boast, pool is nothing special. I can promise that I have kept out of neighbor's koi pond lol, might frighten the fishes! I grew up in the US but now in UK and sense that attitudes toward such things are slightly different in UK.

When I have guests in my Lear Jet I serve caviar.

When I am alone, I don't because I don't like it.

Earlier I had a shower with literally no bikini on at all, and if my neighbours have a problem with it, they should just stop peering through my windows. So there.

Unless your fanny is sucking up the pool water like mine does in the bathblush and depositing it on the floor of waitrose then YANBU.

I don't care what you do in the privacy of your own home. I don't particularly see why you need to share it with the WWW tho.

LastTango Fri 18-Jul-14 20:55:16

I say that to the guests who use the pool of our yacht when out in the middle of the med. No problems at all!

SauvignonBlanche Fri 18-Jul-14 20:55:36

Not just me that doesn't get it then?

SiennaBlake Fri 18-Jul-14 20:55:37

Is this a bikini troll?

All her other posts are about the pool.


StillFrigginRexManningDay Fri 18-Jul-14 20:57:17

Bet its a three ring pool she gets blown up at the local garage and is sitting starkers in 4" of water.

I'd never allow nudity in the guest pool - too unhygienic but in my personal pool it's fine - it's out by the helipad so not overlooked at all
