Top ten most bizarre genuine travelling customer complaints

According to Thomas Cook in the UK, some holidaymakers are just never satisfied. Here are the top ten most bizarre and genuine customer complaints received by the firm in recent years:

1. 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.

2. The beach was too sandy.

3. I bought a snorkel and swimming mask for my six-year-old son, but he was too upset to use them as the fish frightened him.

4. It rained on my birthday.

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

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

7. 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.

8. We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.

9. None of the hotel staff was English, and the tea didn't taste the same as at home.

10. I would like to complain about the price of alcohol in the resort.. It was too cheap and I woke with a hangover every day.


I'm honestly wondering what they expected the travel agents to do about it. Sweep the beach? Cancel siestas? I should think they'd be more tempted to drink all that alcohol themselves.

And the picture. )

I received these via email, so, in celebration of me feeling faaar more awake (as opposed to 9/10ths drained), I'm posting them here. See if this lot make you feel tired! :oD

The email said these pictures don't need captions, but some of them scream out for one. So, don't be surprised if any of these pop up on my LJ later complete with captions.

I got these via email. The title was "Who's the better mother?" Well, it's certainly *not* the lion as he's male. Anyway, the photos are under the cut.

This girl I know lives on the 4th floor of an apartment, and even though it is a fairly good neighbourhood, she has been having trouble with a Peeping Tom that lives next door. Every time she goes out on her balcony to catch a bit of sun while wearing her bikini, this Peeping Tom looks over from his balcony, and stares at her.

She has complained to the superintendent about this Peeping Tom, but he says she must have positive proof before he can do a thing --

She FINALLY got a picture of him while he was staring at her...

Stress test

I know everyone's probably feeling stressed. Christmas has come and gone, but credit card bills are lingering on. So this test can tell if you're stressed or not. It's so simple, but it really does work.


The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at the Mayo Clinic and later at Fletcher Medical Center in Burlington.

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress will find many differences between the two dolphins.

The more differences a person finds, the more stress that person is experiencing.

Look at the photograph under the cut and, if you find more than one or two differences, you may need to take a vacation.

I've just got an email from FedEx! They have a parcel for me, and they 'understand' that it contains a bank draft for $800,000. All I need to do is contact their delivery department and arrange delivery.

My 'contact' (who's from the US but is in Nigeria for 3 months working with a construction firm - so he's, like, totally trustworthy) has paid the VAT and shipping charges, as well as insurance fees.

Oh! All I have to do is pay £150 ($300) to the FedEx Delivery Department in "full payment for the Security Keeping Fee of the FedEx Company". My contact wanted to pay them (because he's so caring and, like, totally trustworthy) but FedEx wouldn't let him.

And if I don't reply, they'll contact the "British Commission for Welfare" (whoever they are) as there's no return address.

::rolls eyes:: I'd better go write that £150 cheque ASAP then, hadn't I?

Amazingly, my email programme labelled this as spam. I can't think why.

I got this by email too. The pictures are (IMO) pretty fantastic. Of course, this is from someone who can't draw a straight line without a ruler. And um...sometimes not even then. ::blushes::
