It’s bad enough when we embarrass ourselves in the comfort of our own home, where family members won’t judge you (they may just remind you of it until the end of time). Embarrassing yourself in front of a load of strangers in foreign lands is on a much grander scale and can be the stuff of sweat-filled nightmares for years to come, or gasping anxiety attacks when we remember what we did. Most of us are shamefully guilty of making a fool of ourselves from time to time and even on holiday. Take a look to see if you’ve committed any of the social crimes below…
Letting the good times flow
And flow they do on holiday, particularly if you’ve ever been to an all-inclusive resort! Combine the carefree spirit, the low-priced booze, the measures to make your eyes water and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. Having one too many on holiday is common, but who has had so many they’ve had to apologise to the cleaning staff about the ‘tummy bug’ that caused a bout of violent sickness? Or worse, had to apologise to bar staff when there wasn’t time to make it to the loo?!
Hangover from hell
The day after the night before can see us crawling around our hotel room and wincing at the sight of sunlight. If by some sheer miracle you can venture outside, you’ll likely be found looking a little green around the gills, unable to eat a thing, crippled with a headache and looking very obviously the worse for wear to all who can see you (and who possibly saw you the night before!) If it’s a catastrophic headache you suffer from, it may not just be as a result of the booze – it could be a migraine. Kit yourself out from Click Pharmacy before you leave and you could avoid one thing at least!
It’s all Greek to me
Saying gracias to a Greek or merci to an Italian ensures we don’t look culturally chic as we desire, more an uneducated oaf. Cringe! Remember where you are on holiday and what language they speak.
Being caught short
The booze, keeping hydrated or just not fancying using a less-than-savoury loo can mean that we are eventually forced into relieving ourselves somewhere a little more public. Such as a flowerpot or backstreet! The heat and everything else can increase your desire to go thanks to a minor infection such as cystitis so in case that happens, make sure you pack some treatment before you go from Click Pharmacy.
Tiny clothing for maximum tannage, slippery substances coating our skin, wetness from a quick dip and trying to roll demurely over gives an eyeful of flesh to our sunbed neighbours. Luckily you don’t have to see them again…after every day and meal for the next two weeks!
We hope your next holiday is lacking in embarrassing mishaps such as these, or you at least give your companions a good laugh!
