This is no joke.

Ok, so the title means that this news article is real. (Because it sounds unbelievable.) But seriously, this article is SO funny, and very much authentic. Enjoy!

THE strangest holiday complaints ever made by British tourists have been revealed, with hilarious results.

Thomas Cook and the Association of British Travel Agents compiled a list of the bizarre complaints -

It seems many British travelers aren’t used to beaches, with a tourist complaining that “the beach was too sandy” and another upset when they discovered fish swimming in the sea.

"No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled," the tourist said.

It seems some travelers also have a lot to learn about nature.
"I was bitten by a mosquito – no-one said they could bite," a holidaymaker complained.

In another complaint a British guest at a Novotel hotel in Australia said his soup was too thick and strong, not realizing he had been supping from the gravy boat.

Other complaints included “there are too many Spanish people in Spain” and “too much curry served in restaurants in India”.

Sometimes you just have to wonder what happened to common sense! I think if people can't appreciate other cultures and a change of scenery, they should just stay in their home country!! Just my personal take.:)

I remember God's World News once did an article on the most ridiculous warning labels. They had us roaring. For example - this one was found on the handle of a hammer:
Caution: Do not use this hammer to strike any solid object. And a warning on a lighter read: Flame may cause fire. It's hard to believe....

@Kathrina
No kidding! It's our world though I suppose. And yeah, wow, what a label.

@Sarah
