Six holiday makers annoyed the owner of their Spanish hotel this week by not smashing the place up in drunken brawls, by not throwing up in hallways, or by having sex in elevators.
The lack of upsetting noise, violence and general drunken debauchery from this group of civilised holiday makers caused such rage and fury in Carlos Sultana, the owner of La Platha Cenza that it drove him to the brink of suicide.
So incensed was he at not having to clear up after this un-loutish group that he was almost forced to close the hotel for the rest of the summer. Even after begging some of the lads and offering them to stay for another week free of charge was not enough incentive for them to change their behaviour. He even considered making the mess himself, so as not to lose face in front of other hotel owners in the region.
With some negotiation, staff worked extra hours to break a few tables, smash bottles and glasses, and piss in the lobby.
One of the hotels’ residents was reported to say “I’ve never witnessed this kind of behaviour before”.
Another patron stated “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I mean, who do these young people think they are?” “I shant be staying here again, not if I don’t have something to complain about”.
A young lady, who was staying close by said she was shocked to see the group having fun around the pool, without a single beer bottle in sight. She also commented “I didn’t know people of my age could act like human beings. Where do they come from?”
We wanted to find out the answer to this conundrum, and discovered that, oddly enough these ‘people’ came from one of the most impoverished areas of the UK…Croydon.
Is it so unusual to find twenty-something’s with regard for civil holiday-making? We visited one of the so called “Spanish Six” in their native habitat and asked why he felt the need to be so law abiding in another country.
“Well”, said Mark, 22, “people of our age are always being dowsed in the same cheap lager that we thought we’d have a break from the usual Friday nights out”.
