It's often said there's no such thing as a stupid question...

These wonders would seem to disprove that claim.

I'm a member of a few travel related groups and in the past few days these questions have been asked.

1.  We went to Greece in September last year and it was too hot.  We have booked again for September this year.  Will it be too hot again?

2.  We fly next week from our local airport and the flight this week has had a long delay.  Will it be the same next week?

3.  XYZ tour operator isn't flying to our required destination next year from our local airport.  That's not fair.  What can I do about it?

    In the maternity unit where I worked, a woman who gave birth prematurely asked the midwife:  "Will my baby's birthday be today, or the day it should have been born?"

    Reported in the Daily Telegraph in the late 80s as heard on a tourist coach after a group of Americans  visited Windsor Castle.

    I was stopped by an American tourist in Edinburgh castle when they were changing guards. 
    " what just happened then?" 
    " they were changing the guards"
    "but aren't they the same guys?" 
    "no, they just look the same as they're wearing the same uniform"
    " Oh...." blank look and walked away.

    Yes - you can't beat those tourists for their astonishing lack of basic knowledge, can you?  :D
    We just keep happily taking their money off them...... ;)

    @josusa47 - that's actually quite terrifying  :o
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    we asked for two single beds and you gave us a double, now I’m pregnant and I’m holding your company responsible.

    American tourists .....   While I was a railway guard on the London - Brighton line, we stopped at Gatwick Airport, and an AT asked me,  "How do I get on the train?"  I suggested one foot at a time - it works for me.

    And halfway along the north Wales coast on the way to Holyhead for the ferry to Dun Laoghaire,  "Are we in Scotland yet?"
