For those of you that are in the event planning industry, you know that travel complaints are just part of the job. Legitimate ones, that is. Whether it be air travel complaints, hotel complaints and now the upcoming holiday complaints, there never seem to be any shortage of people feeling slighted. And personally, I can sympathize with the legitimate complaints (unexpectedly being transferred to another hotel, the airline oversold your flight and you’ve been bumped off your flight, etc.).
You Will Shake Your Head at Some of These Travel Complaints
The good people at Just the Flight (a UK travel site) have compiled a list of ridiculous travel complaints. Here are a few that you will find mind boggling:
A man sent a complaint to Disneyworld claiming that it was “too touristy”.
After being told she could reach the front desk by dialling 9, a lady complained when she was repeatedly unable to do so from her mobile.
“The street signs weren’t in English. I don’t understand how anyone can get around.”
“The animals at the zoo looked very sad and it made our children cry. Can’t they train them to smile?”
“I spent a whole week on safari, and didn’t see any good animals. There was only a load of antelopes.”
“You told us that there was a rooftop pool, but above us was just another room.”

There’s no doubt that traveling can, at times, be stressful. After all, there are many factors at play to make everything run like clockwork. But sometimes people can complain about the simplest things. Personally I call these first world problems. But seriously, don’t you think that some people should just stay home?
