I watched Capt Sandy's IG live so you didn't have to (with vodka)-she is awful. This was painful. I would compare her "inspirational" speech to Bill Murray in his ending speech in Scrooged, but I love that movie and won't insult him. She is planning on doing this next week. I'll be at work and I can't live through this again-she is inviting her friends and just rattles names off like I know who TF Vicki and Bill are:
BLUF: None of us understand because we aren't working on a yacht. She is the victim here and she is mad.
I couldn't cover everything because woof. It was like she was giving a paid speech-we are all one planet, one love, etc. Lady I waited in line for RBG-you are not a speaker. She is all over the place. She literally said nothing interesting or helpful. Also we are all hateful and mean & should think of Malia and Tom's feelings. The comments I did catch were a mix of YOU ARE THE BEST to YOU SHOULD QUIT. I pride myself on giving good summaries, but this was impossible. She meandered from one comment to another-she kept asking people to help her read comments. She comes off really rude and VERY angry and blames all the viewers. She comes off as the victim (to editing, to maritime law, to all the haters)-she lists all the tragedy that happened to her (it borders on Kelly Taylor's 90210 college years). Useless and with tons of technical difficulties. I know she is sober, but she seems like she is on something-unfocused and confused. She trails off mid-sentence.
-To her micromanaging=her "helping"; if you are a good job, you never see her (so her staring at the deck crew was because she didn't trust them?).
-Apparently her defense is that the Captain is responsible for all the things on board (true), but she used the comparison of the Costa Concordia and how the crew ran that ship aground (which I thought he was on the bridge bragging to a lady). She talks a lot about how much reading she had to do about Malta law and regulations and law. You know-like anyone would that has a job where you need to familiar with regulations (i.e. the majority of us).
-She really talks about drugs and drug testing. I have shared I get drug tested for my gov't job and they test for narcotics. Also anxiety meds are not drugs, but she doesn't see it. She gets mad having to go back to the Valium. "If she gave you her drugs, would it be different." She has to be coached to answer because she said "no" at first. (Drugs are her words, not mine)
-She spent a lot of time talking about the laws and rules that yachtees have to learn. She explained about flying under the Maltese flag.
-Question on favoritism: A lot of congratulatory statements on her career, then on to editing, editing, editing... So we don't see the whole picture (she went to that a lot-you signed up for a reality show Captain). She answered an ad in the newspaper because she had to pay off her debts (I'm not sure if that was the Bravo ad?). She is quoting Denzel Washington, Thomas Edison, and Reggie Jackson about falling forward to say that Kiko was beloved.
-They NEVER showed her helping Kiko and if she was in the galley, it was only because she was doing his dishes. He thanked her so much and they never see her.
-She went on about how to work in the maritime industry if you aren't "college material". That seems like an odd statement. She circles back to working on a yacht and how if you can't make it in college, you can make it there. (Is this not insulting to everyone-college and not?)
-She has no idea how to use IG.
-She has "nothing to do with cabins", she made a mistake because she was annoyed and was tired of hearing about the cabins-she wouldn't have gotten involved if they had made a decision. Haven't we all made an emotional decision? (Uh, they did make a decision-Malia just didn't like it)
-She has "no idea" what happens on the boat-with the cabins, with guests driving drunk on the jet ski. Even though she is responsible for the whole boat? She can't speak for Malia.
-She read the internet because she addresses the comment about Tom not having his knives.
-She has too much of a life to see anyone on the crew off the boat.
-This is "corona's" fault.
-Lots of "I'm sorry that you..."
-"No comment" on Captain Lee.
-She can hire Kiko for her restaurant.
-She claims she will respond to all emails, but not hate. So sorry to anyone here!
