Apologies if this has already been published.


This was sent around from Thomas Cook Holidays - listing some of the guests complaints during the season. Some people should not be allowed to go on holiday!!!!!


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

"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."

"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."

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

A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, 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.

"The beach was too sandy."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners."

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

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

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

"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."

Its German, has a round badge, reminds me of a Mercedes. Satan fuelled
life would be so good without members of the public spoiling it.

I get fed up with people saying to me " I would like to book a seat on your flight to ...."

They don't understand that we (I, in their book) are an airport, and a mile of runway can't actually fly anywhere, and that they should contact the airline who flies the aircraft to that island to book a seat. And in the main, they find this far too much and do lots of huffing an puffing about the fact that not only have they had to walk from the car, to the airport door, they now find they could have done all this from home in the first place.

It always amuses me when I explain how a telephone works at this point, amazing invention that is, one day it will catch on.

Reminds me of when we went to South of France with the inlaws. Who quite audibly complained that the restaurant menu was not in English. They could not (and still will not) grasp that the slow service we received was down to them!

We had a similar experience when my mother worked in Gambia(West Africa)...

A charming German tourist decided that she had had enough, and wanted to complain... after a while the receptionist sends her to my mother, and as best I can remember:
- This contry is horrible; there are too many black people here, and in addition, no-one speaks German!
> May I remind you that you ARE in Africa, this is "their" country you are in, not yours. Why did you come here in the first place?
- Well, I wanted to goto Monaco, but this was cheaper...

Sigh...

This and that.
A few years ago, I was doing some work at a travel agency, and a couple came in to pay the balance on a holiday they'd booked.

They paid, got their paperwork and so on, and received wishes from the staff for a good vacation. As they were leaving the shop, the woman turned back and said "Oh, one more thing; can I have the adress I need to write to to complain about the holiday?"

It was a very rude elephant and certainly not suitable for viewing on a public forum

PM me your email address.....
