mascamps.com Posted August 13, 2007 Share Posted August 13, 2007 A little while ago, we received a really, really interesting letter of complaint from some guests via the reservation system they'd used which I thought 'yall might find a short summary of quite funny...1. The staff didn't know when we were coming.2. They just told us that all the restaurants closed at 9pm when it was only 8pm when we arrived.3. The antiquated hairdryer in the room had a strange smell when we used it and didn't have any hose attached to it.4. All the restaurants were closed when we tried to get lunch at 1pm but they told us that they didn't close 'til 2pm.Well, first off, we didn't know when they were coming 'cos they hadn't even told the reservation place about their flights and we'd no way of contacting them prior to their arrival.The antiquated hairdryer is actually a room heater and the strange smell was her hair burning!But most interesting are 2 & 4 which resulted from a rather catastrophic error on their part... they'd not changed their watches on arriving in France and in fact never changed them for the whole week! So, that 8pm arrival was really 9pm and all the restaurants were closed. That 1pm arrival time for lunch was actually 2pm so no lunch all week.Turns out that they'd only ever been on holiday to Spain before and had NEVER changed their watches when they went on holiday!That was OK in Spain as they could eat and shop pretty much any time, but created a whole series of "Mr Bean" adventures during the week of which the above are merely the tip of the iceberg.Any other "Mr Bean" stories to share?
