Friday Funny



"The beach was too sandy"

THESE ARE ACTUAL COMPLAINTS RECEIVED BY "THOMAS COOK VACATIONS" FROM DISSATISFIED CUSTOMERS: 

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

2. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallarta 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." 

4. "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own               swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price." 

5. "The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room." 

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

7. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my             husband who just wanted to relax." 

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

9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-            slicer in the drawers." 

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 and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the      bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have          made our holiday more fun." 

12. "It took us 9 hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only 3 hours to           get home. This seems unfair." 

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

14. "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the resort.' We're trainee hairdressers and we think they          knew and made us wait longer for service." 

15. "When we were in Spain, there were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist             spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many                     foreigners." 

16. "We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was 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. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes." 

19. "My fiancee and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a         room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the       fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room       that we booked." 
    
BE AWARE...SOME OF THEM WALK AMONG US and THEY VOTE!

My husband liked the ones about the topless beach and the curry restaurants in Goa!!
I loved them all.
Sometimes even perfection isn't good enough for some people!!

Hi Hettie....I'm shaking my head, some people just amaze you, never going to be happy - they're all hilarious. Have a lovely weekend Robyn

Susanne Vargas said...

They are hilarious until you remember that they are real! Those people should just stay at home! Incredible!

It's a good thing I don't use a travel agent. The very idea that foreigners would be serving me food in a foreign country makes me shiver! Ha! Ha!

I totally got wrapped up in these "complaints." They came from small minded individuals who find fault with everything. Nothing is good enough for them. Perhaps a disclaimer is in order, such as "fun is mandatory," or "find a way to enjoy your vacation."

Thanks for showing these. They would be even funnier if they had not been submitted by REAL individuals (a$$h0%es).

I´ve seen some of these before but they still made me laugh out loud. It is hard to believe there are rally people around who think like this. Of course the last one is the real winner, but number 15 just about sums life for us and we wouldn´t have any other way. We avoid the English, especially the ones on holiday. But hey.. When in Spain do as the Spanish do..!! Kate x
