"What they said !!!"
Everyone needs to MANAGE THEIR EXPECTATIONS A LITTLE.
Our plan, we are "closing out" the camping season at our favourite local (six mile drive) county park ... one dump station for like seventy plus sites. So come Sunday, closing day, "Everyone" is gonna want to do the deed.
Heck, we have a comfy TT. Put the TV on 12V mode ... watch the Football game, nosh a little. Our turn will come.
Plan to cheat a little to help the cause. Fill up a 5-gallon bucket (with lid) ahead of time ... have that ready to pour down the toilet after we get to pull the black handle and before we run the power flusher device. We are "lucky" and with a short piece of hose, are able to run the power flusher from our internal water/pump. A couple hot showers ahead of time and plenty of Grey at the ready to rinse the pipes and hose. That is OUR plan but not everyone has same way of doing things.
The folks before us have their requirements and methods, and will also have gotten there before us, so they get their turn first.
This past weekend, work meant we left Saturday, not Sunday. NOBODY in line. "Just Sayin' ...."
If the football game sucks, maybe set up lawn chairs and watch the others like in that Robin Williams movie ?
We could use some sort of Olympic scoring system and rate people ... One point deduction if you drop the hose on the ground, two tenths of a point if you use your elbow to push your hair back or adjust your glasses, DQ if the hose detaches when you pull black lever ?? At the end we raise the FROG Flag and play the theme song from VACATION ???
