Genuine complaints!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

From Thomas Cook Holidays - listing some genuine guests' complaints:

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

2. "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."

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 at all."

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

7. "The beach was too sandy."

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

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

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

13. "There was no egg slicer in the apartment..."

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

15. "The roads were uneven.."

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

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

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

19. "There are too many Spanish people in Spain. The receptionist speaks Spanish.
The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners now live abroad."

20. "We had to queue outside of our hotel with no air conditioning."

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

22. "I was bitten by a mosquito, no-one said mosquitos could bite."

23. "My fiance 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."

Be afraid, be very afraid....'they' are living and walking amongst us - and have the vote!

One more sleep!!!

Sunday, December 23, 2012

In just over 12 hours we will be going to the airport to fly to Prague, Czech Republic for the start of our Magical European White Christmas Tour!
Today was a hot day here, 38 deg.C/ 100F! Wonder how cold it's gonna be on Christmas Day when we arrive in Prague?
I think I have enough warm clothes, hopefully. It never gets below 3-5 deg C in the morning here in the middle of winter.

We are spending 3 days in Prague. Never been there, so will enjoy uncovering the rich history of this beautiful city. Will be seeing the 1000 year old Prague Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, Charles Bridge, Wenceslas Square and the Astronomical clock, once the envy of all Europe. In the evening we attend the stunning Prague State Opera to enjoy Verdi's Aida.
And that's just Day 1!
Next day we have a 2 hour cruise on Vltava river in the morning and in the evening we go to Black Light Theatre.

We then drive through the scenic Bohemian countryside to the medieval town of Cesky Krumlov in South Bohemia. We spend 2 days in this stunning village where 82% of the buildings are officially registered as cultural monuments.

From there we travel through the farming Czech country into Hungary and on to Budapest. We'll spend 5 nights at the luxury Spa Hotel Thermal located in the heart of Budapest, on Margaret Island on the river Danube.
In the evening we have a traditional Hungarian New Year's Eve Gala Dinner with entertainment. emoticon
Next day at noon we enjoy New Year's Day concert. The day will end with 1 hour spectacular Danube cruise with emoticonon the famous Danube River.
Next day we'll take an excursion into Hungary's history. We will also be indulging in a spa treatment & relaxing in the thermal pool.

On Fri 4th Jan we cross the border into Poland and visit the medieval city of Krakow dating back to 7th century. It was country's capital for over 500 years and birthplace of Pope John Paul II. Saturday is our free day so I invited my cousin who lives in Warsaw to come and see us. We'll be spending the day with her and after dinner she'll get back on the train and go home. I saw her last year in August when her niece was married, so it will be fun to see her again. Don't know when we get another chance!

On Mon 7th Jan we travel across the border to Slovakia's capital, the historic Bratislava, which was also capital of the Hungarian Empire for 200 years. After dinner we go to Bratislava Opera to see Bizet's Carmen! emoticon

After 2 days in Bratislava we depart for Vienna, where we spend another 3 full days!

This is really a luxury tour. Daily breakfasts and dinners included, sighseeing tours in each city, 2 river cruises with champagne & wine plus 2 operas, theatre and concerts in Krakow, Vienna and Budapest!

I am really looking forward to having lots of fun!

Wished I had had a pedometer back then! Enjoy your trip. You'll need a vacation to recover from the itinerary! That's my favorite kind of trip. I can rest when I get back home. When I'm traveling I want to see it all!

Why men are just happier people!

Monday, December 17, 2012


Men Are Just Happier People --

What do you expect from such simple creatures?

Your last name stays put.

The garage is all yours.

Wedding plans take care of themselves.

Chocolate is just another snack.

You can be President.

You can never be pregnant.

You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.

You can wear NO shirt to a water park.

Car mechanics tell you the truth.

The world is your urinal.

You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.

You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.

Same work, more pay.

Wrinkles add character.

Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental $100.

People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.

New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.

One mood all the time.

Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.

You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.

You can open all your own jars.

You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

If someone forgets to invite you,

He or she can still be your friend.

Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.

Three pairs of shoes are more than enough..

You almost never have strap problems in public.

You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes..

Everything on your face stays its original color.

The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.

You only have to shave your face and neck.

You can play with toys all your life.

One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons.

You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look..

You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.

You have freedom of choice concerning growing a moustache.

You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives

On December 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

Men Are Just Happier People


If Sheila, Candy and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Sheila, Candy and Sarah.

If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman ..


When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back...

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.


A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.

The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.


A woman has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.


A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.


Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed...

Women somehow deteriorate during the night.


Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

Florida burglary.

Friday, December 14, 2012

When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized recently,
thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even left his Rolex watch.

What they did take, however, was a white box filled with a grayish-white powder. (That's the way the police report described it.)

A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said that it looked similar to high grade cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time.

Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars:
'Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago.'

The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens
was found on Nathan's doorstep. The white box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained.

Scotch taped to the box was this note which said: Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day.

And you thought California was the land of fruits and nuts.
