The truck clean got finished, went to the room, no hot water, no water at all
Mick never did wash the truck, he got 2 blokes into do it, then complained when they didn't do it properly (just round the corner is a jet was for trucks, he just didn't look or ask about it)

I must say that I didn’t feel very adventurous at all, squashed on my Thomas Cook Airways flight from Gatwick to Hurghada with the package tour hordes. Screaming kids and suburban couples heading off for their fortnight of sun, sand, sea and salmonella, were not my favourite travel companions, but I did admire their bravery ...
