    Wink A great 'cut and paste' from the 'Mother Board.'

    Some people should not be allowed out of their homes without proper adult supervision.

    allegedly from Thomes and CooK Holidays (other travel agents are available!)- listing some of the guest's complaints during the season.


    1. "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."

    2. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned

    3. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."

    4. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."

    5. A tourist at a top African game lodge over looking a water hole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".

    6. A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she'd been locked in by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the "do not disturb" sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room..

    7. "The beach was too sandy."

    8. "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."

    9. A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.

    10. "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."

    11. "We bought' Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.."

    12. "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."

    13. "There was no egg slicer in the apartment..."

    14.”We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish..."

    15. "The roads were uneven.”

    16. "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."

    17. "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

    18. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation’. We’re trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying there?"

    19. "There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad'"

    20. "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

    21. "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."

    22. "I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite."

    23. "My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."

    Scary, man, scary. These people are actually allowed to have children, perpetuating their stupidity to future generations. One can only hope that some of them earn a Darwin award prior to becoming parents

    This stuff is way too common
    If you read on-line restaurant reviews you'll see complaints like this every day

    One campground that we go to in western Maine has a google review complaining that no one told them that it would less than convenient to reach their "remote" campsite.

    The road was bad and it took too long to get there. They wanted their money back.
    What else would you expect from the word "remote" ?

    My personal fav. is a major full service RV park in Brookings, Oregon. Right down to cable TV and free internet. In the office on some sort of odd business and the couple in front of me wanted their space rent reduced as they wanted to 'practice dry camping.' (No hook-up as in the Wild.)
