A nice little gem to amuse you from Elder Daughter.

These were taken from a newspaper article about the travel industry and the complaints made by tourists:

"No one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."
"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

"It is your duty as tour operators to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
"I was bitten by a mosquito - no one said they could bite."
"We booked an excursion to the water park but no one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."
"The brochure stated : 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers, will we be ok staying here?"
"We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."
"I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends'three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."
"It took us nine hours to fly to Jamaica from England - it only took the Americans three hours."
"There were too many Spanish people. The receptionist spoke Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners."
"My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the rooms that we booked."

Ha! Ha! The thickness of some of my fellow countrymen never ceases to amaze me! Or were the people who made those holiday remarks Welsh?

Certainly not, YP! I'll set Keith on you if you pursue that line of thought!
Glad you enjoyed it, Craig.
