    Talking Stupid travel complaints....

    Thomas Cook and the Association of British Travel Agents revealed:
    20 of the most ridiculous complaints by holiday-makers made to their travel agent.


    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 overlooking 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 her hotel room by staff. 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. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England, it only took the Americans three hours to get home.”

    14. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends’ three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller.”

    15. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the accommodation.’ We’re trainee hairdressers — will we be OK staying there?”

    16. “There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad.”

    17. “We had to queue outside with no air conditioning.”

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

    19. “I was bitten by a mosquito, no-one said they could bite.”

    20. “My fiancÚ 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.”

    (we had rented out one of our lacabana units a few years ago over the christmas holiday and the renter sent me a comment when they returned. they told me that they were disappointed in lacabana as it did not portray "wintry christmas theme or feeling" as they had hoped, and would never ever go to the caribbean again for the holidays. )

    20 stupid questions asked by tourists

    My favorite :
    "Why on earth did they build Windsor Castle on the flight path of Heathrow?"

    Hint: Windsor Castle was originally built by William the Conqueror in the decade after the Norman conquest of 1066.
