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.

In 2006 Sam and I went on a cruise in the western Mediterranean, and it ended up getting diverted to Menorca. We took a hastily arranged bus tour of the island, which to us seemed like a nice little adventure in a lovely place (even if it was raining), but the thing I remember most vividly was the British tourists who spent the whole trip haranguing the tour guide about how nobody told them they might miss their assigned dinner seating on the ship. It was as if they were grimly determined to have as unpleasant a time as possible and drag others along with them.
