    I did wonder if maybe he wanted to inspect it for medical reasons...

    Not so much a snippet of overheard but, I'm on my vacay in close to damn perfection hotel, the food is incredible (lobster thermidor on the beach, Señor? Don't mind if I do) and yet there's TWO couples who complain about everything.

    Yes of course they're Brits. You fucking guys would complain about getting spittle on your cock whilst getting a world class blowie

    A friend of my parents used to do this. I was mostly able to avoid her myself, but still got stuck at a restaurant with her as part of a larger group on two or three occasions over the years.

    She'd complain about absolutely everything - service too slow, service too fast, food too cold, food too hot, food not what she'd expected from the menu, wrong phase of the moon. She didn't even bother to hide from everybody else that she did it in the hopes of getting items knocked off the bill. It ruined the meal for everybody there, but hey... free starter, right?

    Breathed a sigh of relief when the mother finally had a proper falling out with the old cow.

    Reminds me of the time my mum brought a basket of her own spinach to an Indian restaurant and made them use it for her Sag Aloo. I dread to think how much they spat in it before serving it. I could have died from the embarrassment

    @fontgeeksogood us Brits are the masters of complaining.

    Went to the Grand Canyon and gasped at view while a family next to me said "It's not very impressive is it?".

    Always moaning. Americans are annoying but at least they rarely moan.

    Overheard conversations. A group of young girls walked by announcing quite loudly that their boyfriends ball sack hangs really low and it's all hairy.

    That's bizarre, why'd she do that?

    At a guess I’d say she doesn’t like the frozen muck typically used at the tandoori

    She should've gone the whole hog and turned up with a Sainsbury's prawn bhuna and asked them to microwave it for her.

    My observations are, Americans will complain, but usually to someone who can make a difference. Both the Brit couples are being chicken with their grumbles and not doing it within earshot of staff, and of course "everything's fine!" when asked.

    Britain: either complain properly or stfu

    .
    They also have he ability to take the piss or have a bit of a laugh, something which possibly passed you by at the moment the line was said.

    Whoa whoa, nobody complains like the Germans. And we're not afraid to tell the staff how badly they failed, for serving a second too early, or a second too late, or on time.

    I heard a woman in Waitrose tell the staff they were stingy for not providing paper napkins as she turned to leave clutching her free coffee.

    There was the one time where I overheard a woman at the Argos kiosk mentioning something about selling her product on eBay because the staff refused to take it back and refund her for it.

    I heard a barman ask a woman if she had an extra 5p. She had, so her change was exactly 50p and not 45p.

    I genuinely think couples who moan do it because they've run out of other conversation.

    I think people do it try and portray a illusion of snobbery.

    Nothings ever good enough. "I'm used to the finer things" etc.

    Personally I would never send anything back. What does it achieve? Other than an increase in your daily spittle intake.

    I don't get it. That's normal. It can be different denominations of currency, but it's fairly normal. Is this supposed to be out of the ordinary? I see Rogueywon has already expressed similar sentiments to myself, but maybe we're in some weird bubble and such requests are abhorrent elsewhere?

    God damn he's so polite, even when he's kind of saying "WTF are you talking about?!"

    I'd been reading some of the posts and thought anything goes if you heard it, even if it wasn't interesting or amusing. In its prime this forum would have subsequently been filled with dull anecdotes for a page or two and we'd all have had a jolly good time.
