2. Complain to the other divers that the DM is inexperienced, unfriendly, unresponsive to suggestions and too safety conscious (because the DM banned you from diving after you went to 60M).
3. Complain to the manager that the food is bad, service is lousy and the room next door make love too loud. Demand that they provide you with an opposite gender so that you can do her/him louder than next room.

2. Do not let them know that you were scared shitless when you 1st saw them.
3. Do not let them know that this is the 2nd day you are on the island, just walk around arrogantly as though you're god's gift to diving and get your partner (regardless of gender) to pander after you.
