09:22 am - No one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled.
The Telegraph recently ran an article detailing the amount of ludicrous complaints tour operators have received from various tourists who would have done better just staying at home.

One tourist was unhappy because there were too many Spanish people in Spain. Another one complained that the beaches were too sandy. And a third was bit by a mosquito and was thoroughly chagrined, because "no one told us they bite."

"No one told us" is a common theme. Wonder why.

Oh, and then there's the elephant. That might be the best one of all. G'wan and read it already.

I dunno. Having worked as a travel planner and having had to endure some of the most bizarre complaints and demands, I admit each one does indeed have an air of legitimacy. Lots of ignorant travellers out there. These are the people who tell you they want to plan a vacation and, when pressed for a destination, answer "Oh, I don't know... someplace warm. Close to the water. And not a lot of people around."

And they invariably end up picking a Spring Break weekend, too.

The elephant does smack of Henry Root, now that I think about it.
