I have just two grumpy old Austrailian guests my UK Listing. I knew from the first second of speaking with them it was not going to go well. They had a venomous attitude. After seeing them trying to park their car I knew these pair had trouble written on their foreheads. nothing good enough - everything and everybody was against them. I figured they were just tired after a long flight.
They came to my self-catering appartment with no food and I took them in my own car to two supermarkets to get supplies - They were just barely able to drive and as for parking…Jesus.
They had bought a SIM card for their phone in Ireland and wondered why it would not work in the UK - they started moaning at me about it - even helping them get on my WiFi did not appease them
They seemed wholly unequipped for foreign travel and anything they were not used to at home is phasing them completely. They have minor mobility problems and the gent has a chest infection - nice. but no reason to be nasty to strangers.
Three times they knocked on my door unable to work something or find something that was made clear in the listing handbook and that was their first night.
As a host and businessman I bit my tongue and was as nice as pie with them.
Imagine my horror when they gave me 5/10 for every aspect of my listing and zero positive comments, only silly spurious negetive ones.
I was incandescent with rage on reading same especially as all my previous scores were 10/10
In short they were BASTARDS!!!
ah right … I feel a little better now
Thankfully my other Aussie guests were a dream
