  • Those damn British

    We're a nation of complainers, in fact I don't think we are happy unless there is something to complain about! Seems these vacationers had to work hard to find something to complain about too...

    20 of the most ridiculous complaints made by British holidaymakers whilst abroad. (click next to scroll through them all).

    Still, mustn't grumble. ;)



    Seriously, some of those are so ridiculous it makes me ashamed to be a Briton (as if I needed another excuse).

          I remember reading this a long time ago:

          LONDON (Reuters) - The best tourists in the world are the Japanese, followed by Americans and the Swiss, a survey based on views from hoteliers across Europe said Wednesday.

          Japanese tourists stood out for being polite and tidy, securing 35 percent more votes than the Americans who came second.

          Swiss tourists were commended for being quiet and considerate, unlike the Britons who were judged to be the fifth worst tourists because of rude behavior, noise and a miserly attitude to tipping.

          But despite their faults, hoteliers do look favorably upon British spending habits voting them the third biggest holiday spenders after Americans and Russians.

          Based on responses from 15,000 European hoteliers, the survey carried out on behalf of travel Web site Expedia showed that the worst tourist nation was France, followed by India, China and Russia.

          Britain was second in the worst-dressed tourist table which was headed by the Americans, and fifth in the least-generous table which was headed by the Germans.

                ha, saw it on www.fark.com or as the owner of the website refers to it as: "The Nanny State"

                if you think that's bad, just read everything that has the "Florida" tag attached to it.

                  LOL. Like it's just British saying these things. You KNOW there are lots of Americans saying stupid stuff like this.

                    I agree with that, i'd like to see some complaints of American's on Cruise Ships....why it is so popular in America I have no idea, I've never been on one, but I do know many who have.

                      I can't see where it says "British" - it just says complaints. Could be anyone lol and I doubt the Brits are the only ones to come out with ridiculous comments such as these ;)

                        While I can imagine Americans being equally stupid, the Brits may be more rude in their expression of it, earning a lower score among the tourist trade. Americans may simply be more tolerant in their stupidity. (I know I try to be. ;))
