I love hearing bad vacation stories! I just got back from a 2 week Hawaii vacation (Maui and Kauai). We went to a wedding on Maui and one of our friends got the window of there rental car smashed, while they went swimming in a waterfall! Then after they called the police, and on there way back to their hotel, they got rear-ended, and my girlfriend Crystal who is pregnant started contracting....poor things. But everthing ended up being okay.
Now personally my worst vacation nightmare was when my husband and i missed our flight to mexico...(his mother's fault) but our luggage was on the plane. We were able to catch another flight to LAX. When we got to LA, we were stuck 2 hours at the United Counter. Luckily the supervisor name Osama (really) helped us out printed up new tix and we stayed over nite at a hotel. While at the hotel i inspected the tix. WHen he reprinted them, he forgot to included our flight out of Ixtapa to mexico city!!!! I started freaking out, told my husband we had to wake up early to go back to the United counter to get this fixed. I started thinking what if he wasnt there, and it was just some random person? They wouldn't know what the heck we were talking about!!! So we get back at LAX at 5am....im sweating bullets....guess who was at the counter OSAMA!!!! THank god.
He resolves the problem gives us new tix....and upgrades for the way back...We catch our flight to Mexico City..Go to the Mexicana counter to check in for the last leg of our flight....We are told the flight doesnt exist!!! I was so damn tired at this point....I got really pissed and said in Spanish...You better fix this and fix it now!!
I guess it worked! We got a flight to Ixtapa on AeroMexico... We arrived at the airport...Our luggage was sitting safely in customs..and it turned out we missed the hurricane by one day!!!!!!!
We did have a wonderful vacation....
Can wait to hear other peoples stories!!!
