Lifts....

Post by david63 » 30 Oct 2018, 16:06

Just read one of the best questions ever on Facecloth...

"Do the lifts go up and down or does one go up and one go down?"

Next question will be "Does the same ship bring you home that takes you out?"

I'm sure we can think up some more

I saw that David and considered responding, but how could you without sounding condescending.

No, can't you see the cable all the way back to Southampton?

there's also the story of someone complaining to reception that they had booked a sea view cabin and all they could see was cranes....

Ship was yet to leave port

A few weeks ago on another forum, someone complained that the English breakfast didn’t change for the entire cruise.

There’s a story I heard, but I doubt if it’s true.

Someone complained that the microwave in his cabin wasn’t working. They sent someone to the cabin, and it turned out that this bloke was trying to heat a cup of coffee in the safe!

A true story about a safe that my brother told me when they were in India, Gill.
They checked in to the hotel and were pleased with the overall standard.
He went to put their valuables in the safe as you would, when he realised that it wasn't secured down and anyone could walk away with it.

So, he picked it up and walked down to reception with it.

" There is a problem with the safe" he told the receptionist.
" What is the problem sir"
" It's in my hands" he said
" Sorry but I don't see what the problem is"
"Well, I've walked away with it"
" So what exactly is the problem? Do you have trouble opening it"
" I'm standing in front of you with the 'secure safe' in my arms and you cannot see any problem?"
"Oh ! I see. would you like it secured down?"
"Yes please, otherwise it's not much use"
" No problem sir, I'll send up maintenance"

Appartently no one else had noticed that it wasn't secured down.
