Questions from OP (comical rant)

Jump to last reply

It is supposed to be relatively funny, no need to tell me that if I'm not satified I am not obliged to answer OP's questions..

So, I collated some of the usual requests from OP's that I listed as a post.

So questions :
I'm going to Yurop :
1. What is there to see ?
(come on guys, you don’t think I’ll buy a paperguide and do some research, would you ?)
2. Safe place to stay, close to the main attractions
3. What are the must sees ?
4. I realize they are not all WASP there – Can it be a problem for me, can I survive in these kind of places ?
5. How to go to my hotel ? (no, I won’t tell you where it is, just give the name, funnier…)
Err, forgot the name… not sure it still has one actually 
6. Where can I get a good restaurant ?
My children are picky, so a pizzeria would be nice, my DD,DH, BB, wants to eat in a place like (insert a restuarant that nobody in Europe has heard of)
7. Of course I’m traveling only with $, will these underdeveloped guys take them ?
8. AC : do I need AC ?
9. Car rental : can you rec one ?
One that doesn’t send me fines with fees
One that I can give back with scratches without checking and not pay anything
With winter tyres
With no drop off fees, but I’ll give it back on (insert a country several thousands miles away)
How can I go from xxxx to YYY (ideally an island) by car (and I hate ferries)
10. Hotel : can you rec a hotel in a non-touristy place, close to the must sees, cheap, with king size beds, and US breakfast
11. Patisserie : where can I buy the best croissants..
12. Apartment : I found an apartment, is it good ?
I have no rec, don't know where it is, so no review, 3rd floor no lift and owner wants 95% 4 months in advance cash, the rest when I arrive.
I arrive at 3 30 am, wil lthe owner greet me ?
13. I don't speak French, nor Bengalese, nor xxxx do these guys speak English ?
14. I don't know their laws and will apply the ones in my country of origin, can it cause a problem ?

*****
And I will end by saying that there are some great guys among you who keep answering all those questions... without showing that they are getting tired of some :-)

I'm grumpy (am I ?) , hence my post... hoping it brought a smile out of you - if it didn't, just don't comment : 'I don't understand how some regulars can be so rude and need to answer posts that they don't like. The questions were perfectly legit, if you don't like it, just move on, not that difficult, is it ?'

Have a nice day !
