    "The Aroused Elephant Ruined My Honeymoon Because He Made Me Feel Inadequate" And Other Travel Complaints
    "The beach was too sandy"

    Now we can all enjoy the vacations that dumb people take, thanks to Thomas Cook and the Association of British Travel Agents, who keep track of the bonehead complaints they receive from returning travelers.

    Dumb and feeling inadequate is no way to go through life, son.

    For your enjoyment, tales of people's dumber vacations:

    • A man who said an aroused elephant ruined his honeymoon by making him feel inadequate.
    • "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."
    • "The beach was too sandy."
    • "I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite."
    • "There are too many Spanish people in Spain."
    The article has more, including the woman who blamed her pregnancy on the hotel bed.

    I was out in Pofolks when I lived out in the states - for some reason - and I remember being in a queue behind some elderly english folks who were basically telling the server how horrible all the food looked.

    I think it may well have been the only time I have ever been embarissed to be english.

    Although I did decide to fake an aussie accent on Saturday night, but I was pretty drunk and don't think the reason would be as valid as it was then.
