    Tourist Complaint

    A man takes his kids on holiday to Ilfracombe in Devon, a nice beach resort with a working fishing harbour.

    Whilst walking around the harbour he complains about seeing....












    Fish!

    See here Tourist complains about sight of fish in harbour - Yahoo! Travel UK

    Some folks can be really crabby.......
    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

    Mr Copp is understood to have been on a two-week family holiday in the popular north Devon tourist resort when he lodged his complaint, which attracted disbelief from locals.

    One said: “Ridiculous. Does he think all his food comes in packets? What did he expect to see at a working harbour?”
    Yep. That pretty much sums it up.

    He should go somewhere else for tourism if he doesn't like what he sees there. There's plenty of fish in the sea....

    "Fish? In my seaport?! It's more common than you think."

    I hope he never comes on a tour of cattle country. Our bulls already provide us with plenty of what he has to offer. Some complain about the smell of it too, but to me it is the fresh smell of country commerce and cityfolk prevention.

    Some of these city dwellers should never be allowed to leave the city. I expect he complains they don't speak English when he catches a plane to Spain.
