According to Thomas Cook in the UK some holidaymakers
are just never satisfied. Here are the top ten most bizarre and
genuine customer complaints received by the firm in recent

1 On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find
that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like
spicy food at all.

2 The beach was too sandy.

3 I bought a snorkel and swimming mask for my six-year-old
son, but he was too upset to use them as the fish
frightened him.

4 It rained on my birthday.

5 Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The
holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at
other women.

6 I think it should be explained in the brochure that the
local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard
creams or ginger nuts.

7 It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the
afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta'
time - this should be banned.

8 We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (3.50)
from a street trader, only to find out they were fake.

9 None of the hotel staff was English, and the tea didn't
taste the same as at home.

10 I would like to complain about the price of alcohol in
the resort. It was too cheap and I woke with a hangover
every day.

80 years after Little Big Horn, an East Coast journalist began
research on George Armstrong Custer. A friend told him that an
Indian that lived through that experience was still living and
furthermore remembered EVERY event of his long life.

The journalist visited Chief Big Eagle, who now lived in a small
town in Pennsylvania. When he arrived and stated his purpose,
the Chief agreed to answer his questions.

"On what day of the week did the event take place? "
"What was Custer wearing?"
"Black uniform.. ceremony sword.. old hat"
"What did Custer eat for breakfast?"

The journalist was skeptical and figured anyone could make up
these answers. He left, and never published his article.

Ten years later, the journalist was by coincidence driving through
the same small town, and decided to see if the old Chief was
still living. To his surprise, he was. As the journalist walked in he
raised his hand in the air and said, "How!"

"Over easy, with potatoes on the side," said the chief.

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Swiss paper Sonntags Zeitung Donaed ad to con artist March 1, 2007 - Zurich, Switzerland - AP Some people will do anything to appear in the papers. But few have the audacity of a man in Switzerland, who conned one of the country's biggest media companies into publishing a two-page ad he created of himself posing semi-naked beside a bottle of Gucci perfume. The man, who claimed to represent the Italian fashion giant, called up the Swiss weekly SonntagsZeitung last week to book the expensive color spread in Sunday's edition, a spokesman for the paper said. Christoph Zimmer told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the man asked for the 60,000-Swiss-franc (about $50,000) bill to be sent to Gucci. "We've spoken to Gucci and apologized for the mistake," Zimmer said. "We're going to try and get the money back from this guy, but we don't rate our chances." The Milan, Italy-based Gucci could not be reached for comment. (They were probably laughing too hard about the free ad.) Zimmer said the paper fell for the scam because the call arrived too late for the advertising department to check whether it was genuine. It wasn't the first time that the mysterious model a dark, handsome man appearing to be in his late 20s tried to sneak his way into the limelight. According to the Zurich-based daily Blick, the man attempted to book concert venues by passing himself off as Puerto Rican singer Chayanne. The paper said it narrowly avoided also being conned, but was tipped of the hoax by record company Sony BMG, which represents Chayanne. The man is under investigation for alleged fraud, said Meinrad Stoecklin, a spokesman for police in the canton (state) of Basel. ===========================================

=========================================== As US tourists in Israel, a man and his wife were sitting outside a Bethlehem souvenir shop waiting for fellow tourists. An Arab salesman approached them carrying belts. After an impassioned sales talk yielded no results, he asked where they were from. "America," the husband replied. Looking at her dark hair and olive skin, the Arab responded, "She's not from the States." "'Yes, I am." said the wife. He looked at her and asked, "Is he your husband?" "Yes," she replied. Turning to the husband, he offered, "I'll give you 100 camels for her." The husband looked stunned, and there was a long silence. Finally he replied, " She's not for sale." After the salesman left, the somewhat indignant wife asked her husband what took him so long to answer, to which the husband replied, "I was trying to figure out how I'd get 100 camels back home." ============================================ Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! ================================== From the Tech Support Pits: From: Karen Re: IE7 filters Dear Webby, Mornin' You recently replied to a lady about ie7...she couldn't view pics due to the filters. I dutifly printed it out because I just "upgraded?" to ie7. I promptly lost it. Would you please tell me how to 'undue' the filters because I am now having a problem. Thanks Karen Dear Karen I think you got me mixed up with somebody else. All I ever recommended regarding IE7 was to NOT install it and how to get the IE7 blocker from Microsoft. I followed my own advice. All I know about IE7 is that people, who installed it anyway, have problems. Maybe a reader knows what IE7 filters you refer to and how to fix them. Have FUN!

They insert and withdraw cards at ATMs to help owners in wheelchairs who are not able to reach. A spokesman for charity Canine Partners, which trains the dogs, said: "They put in the card and take it out and take out the money and give it to the person in the wheelchair. "They can't put in the Pin but a person in a wheelchair can go sideways on and do that." Up to 30 dogs are trained each year and the charity is hoping to double that figure next year. It takes two years to train them, in which time they also learn to load the washing and pick up items from shop shelves. The cash machine scheme was started by chance when Gulf War veteran Allen Parton was at a cash machine with his Labrador Endal. Wheelchair-bound Mr. Parton was struggling to retrieve his cash when Endal jumped up to reach for the card, money and receipt with his mouth. He said: "It was amazing, as he had never been taught to do this."

======================================== Rodney wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Rodney looks around the room and sees that it is in a perfect order, spotless, clean. So's the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you." So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating. Rodney asks, "Son, what happened last night?" His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door." Confused, Rodney asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?" His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off you said, "Lady leave me alone, I'm married'!" ========================================
