    That’s where you went wrong, expecting ‘people’ to be reasonable / nice…

    I am amazed at people going on the internet and complaining about what other people choose to moan about in a “Visitor’s Book” while on holiday ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sat in the kitchen with the patio door open and a massive glass of red whilst the wife and kids watch Finding Nemo (again) in the other room. It is my 10 minutes off and I choose to spend it with you.

    Also. I have found the free issue foil. They could have made a casserole lid from that.

    I too am in a holiday house while wife & child watch alice in wonderland, I’m drinking lager though. Been on the beach today, near St Austell, beautiful, will have to come here again. This side of Cornwall is much nicer than the Newquay side. There’s no moaning in the book here but there’s no food processor, Bahhhh.

    The only time I’ve ever written in a guest book, I put, “Your oak floors are shite.”

    Seen one where they moaned that they didn’t get the sea views as advertised.

    Due to fog…

    DD – did you sign it “Professional Flooring Engineer”?

    “Your oak floors are shite.”

    I really hope you didn’t expand on that comment when you wrote in the book.

    I also hope their floors were Pine or Walnut.

    Edit…just for comedy value rather than your wood identification skills.

    I signed it “Whingey Arsehole”, but on reflection, yours would have been better. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looking through he “Visitor’s Book” in our excellent holiday cottage I am amazed at the things people choose to moan about in writing to the owner.

    No casserole lid.
    No free issue foil or cling film.
    Couldn’t work out how to use the oven.

    and my favourite…

    No gravy boat.

    I don’t like the guy in the adjacent parking bay’s Range Rover. I shall have a whinge about it at the end of the holiday.

    Sitting at the Gourmet Pizza Co on the South Bank, just along from the national in fab sunshine eating nice food with a view to die for and the two old bats next to me have moaned about everything!

    I could ask them if they have stayed in a sub standard holiday cottage recently?

    The penne went back because it wasn’t linguini now it’s the wrong kind of linguini FFS! Awesome entertainment.

    When I worked for a holiday company in Royan then St Tropez I came to the conclusion that most clients led imperfect lives in tatty houses in dreary places doing average jobs very averagely then when they turned up on holiday they expected everything to be perfect.

    TBF a casserole with no lid just looks like a cheapo/lazy cast off.

    Seems they own one but some cyclists keep nicking casserole lids and gravy boats.

    They just replied to he waiters enquiry with “The meal was lovelly thanks”. Bloody cowards.

    See what I did there?

    We stayed in a lovely little cottage on Islay in July which was on farmland in the middle of nowhere & some silly sod had complained about farm animals in the garden.
    Reading the comments on that comment was funny!

    We’ve just come back from a very nice week in a cottage in Brittany. My wife is complaining that she has put on 3 pounds. I seem to have lost 2 so we still have 1 unaccounted for.

    I also have the very annoying habit of losing weight at Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So you have stolen approximately 450g of France?

    Just as well they allow free trade within the EU, otherwise they could demand you returned it.

    No…no that’s not right. Surly this is down to the poo factor.

    Ooh I’m still livid about this one…
    Last Poppy Day I had a lady return hers as the little black plastic bit in the middle fell off.
    I could have throttled her and legally got away with it.

    I recently stayed in the most incredible hotel I have ever been to and noticed that a previous guest had complained that the street outside was too noisy.
    The hotel was on 5th Avenue in New York.
    Not sure what they expected.

    I stayed in the Bridge or Orchy Hotel few months back and noticed a similar complaint on TripAdvisor – that the hotel was too close to a noisy highway. ๐Ÿ™„

    I did get a nice photo in the evening though

    Once had someone complain that their room was cold. On offering to turn the heating up for them, they advised that they had turned it off as they “didn’t like heating bedrooms”.

    In a ski chalet. In January. It was -25ยฐC overnight.

    Sometimes you just have to smile and offer a hot-water bottle.

    Had a bad meal with workmates at a local pub one lunchtime. My colleague fed this back by writing “SHIT” in foot-high letters across the table, using chips (with a ketchup full stop).

    On Tripadvisor someone had complained that they couldn’t get a cup of tea at 10pm on a Saturday night at the Torridon Inn. They’d called in ‘on spec’ during a full on Jockanese wedding reception!

    Who TF wants a cup of tea at 10pm on a Saturday night with someone else’s wedding in full swing, apart from your Granny?

    We were reading the guestbook in a hotel in Paris, where some budding author had written a line about the hotel being the ‘perfect place to finish their first novel’ to which my wife commented underneath that she had just finished her paperback on the eurostar, and maybe the hotel should consider some kind of book exchange in the near future.

    Oh how we laughed.

    Most of what I’ve brought back is measured in cl’s rather than g’s. ๐Ÿ™‚
