    Had to repost these from another forum, lol.

    Anybody get comments like these if they run a holiday/travel site?!

    LOL, hilarious! :lol:

    From Thomas Cook Holidays listing some of their UK clientele’s genuine complaints

    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. "The beach was too sandy."

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

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

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

    9. "There was no egg-slicer in the apartment."

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

    11. "The roads were uneven.."

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

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

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

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

    16. "We had to queue outside with no air-conditioning."

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

    18. "I was bitten by a mosquito. No-one said they could bite."

    19. "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."

    Last year, here on Rhodes, I met a Scottish couple in a bar who had come to Greece for a holiday. They heard me speak (I am also Scottish) and they came over to talk to me.

    After a few minutes the chap produced a paper notebook and flipped it open. It transpired he had taken his notebook on holiday with him so he could write down everything that irritated him. I couldn't believe what I was seeing but he was deadly serious. It turned out he had 10 things written in it before he left Glasgow airport!

    Seriously - who does that? It was their first holiday in 10 years.

    I guess people who go on holiday intent on claiming compensation when they get back.

    LOL! :mrgreen:

    Here's another 4 of these:

    - 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".

    - 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.

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

    - "We bought' Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."
