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.

My favourite one from around here was the person who was shocked - shocked! to discover that the mountain trail goes through avalanche zones. How could the gubment allow people to put themselves in such awful peril?

Also (from cruise-ship passengers who are never venturing into the woods anyway): "What, you have bears here? Oh, now I don't feel safe."

The regular Idiot Question, from people who've just stepped off a cruise ship and walked half a dead-flat mile, is "So what's the elevation here?"
