    Sun too hot, drinks too strong: bizarre British tourist complaints

    Too hot: the warm weather in Portugal was cause for one complaint.

    Hot weather, strong alcohol and melting ice cream were among the most bizarre complaints made by British holidaymakers this year, according to one online travel agent.

    Upon arrival in Portugal, one British family told Sunshine.co.uk of their distress at the sunny weather and complained that they were too “hot and sweaty” in their holiday clothes.

    One man told staff of his irritation at the number of holidaymakers who travelled with plain black suitcases, hindering his attempts to find his own plain black suitcase on the airport conveyor belt.

    After discovering that the shampoo in her luggage had leaked during her flight, one woman bemoaned the fact that the hotel she was staying in provided complimentary toiletries, rendering the entire incident “very preventable”.

    Another woman wrote in to complain that her plane journey was a disappointment because the sky was far too cloudy, impeding the view for her and her children and spoiling their game of eye-spy.

    Following a trip to a local theme park, another woman wrote to the travel agent to complain that the Log Flume ride made her feet wet and the sun was so strong that her ice cream melted too quickly.

    One couple criticised the excellent children's entertainment at their resort – so good, in fact, that their children didn't want to spend any time with their parents, while another couple claimed that the lunchtime cocktails at their resort were surprisingly strong, leaving them rather worse for wear during the afternoon.

    “As much as we would like to guarantee that any problem will be dealt accordingly to prevent it from happening again, the weather, the alcohol being too strong, ice cream being too cold or planes flying too high are unfortunately completely out of our control,” said a spokesman for Sunshine.co.uk.

    British people are the worst! They want everything for free and they always manage to find something to moan about.

    This is surprising... I'd expect Americans to bitch about stupid things, but wow.

    I've found Brits DO moan a lot at restaurants. They always seem unsatisfied with everything, and are offputting to the wait staff.

    I barely complain, I find it rude and in most situations unnecessary. And I'm one of those god-forsaken British people...

    They could come here & complain. The sun IS too hot. We'd all have to agree.

    What true brit would moan about their drinks being too strong for chrissakes?!?! On my last vacation the only thing I bemoaned was the fact that I had not brought my own liquor just to avoid paying the markup at the resort. Duh.
