Red face Actual complaints

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



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

2. "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food."

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

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. "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallartato close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time -- this should be banned."

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. "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."

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

So that's what causes it. I have occasionally wondered about that.

Anywhere you have customers, you have some clueless persons.
Reminds me of the old PC tech support calls. "I can't get my cup holder to come out of the computer anymore"

Or the woman that called into the radio talk show in Neenah, Wisconsin. She wanted the "Caution--Deer Crossing" sign moved down the road away from her lot. This so the deer would cross further away and she wouldn't have to dispose of the ones that got hit and ended up in her yard!!

And all this time I thought it was washing your underwear in the same laundry load!

1. "They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax."
Yeah, right! I'll bet he only said that because you caught him looking!

9. "Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers."
And no one ever told you could could slice an egg with a knife?

19. "My fiancée 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."
You've never heard of birth control?
And how can you be so certain that it was the king bed that made you pregnant? Did you have a paternity test done?

ée, the baby, and the king bed] Mr King Bed, you are the father!

The poor husband having to be all stressed out by those topless sunbathers. A guy just can't relax anymore without these kinds of distractions.
The things we men must endure.
