You’re going to spend way more money than you originally intended, the airline might fuck you sideways like they do to the American population in general, you’ll get a skin-crawling sunburn despite the fact that you used an entire bottle of SPF 100, and your girlfriend might flirt with a sexy-looking French dude. Let’s not also forget the possibility of a natural disaster. Keep calm, and carry on. Those who have the privilege to take a vacation do not deserve the right to complain about slow service at the hotel restaurant. Make the most of your Utopian-like time while you’re there. You might regret complaining when you return to your beige cubicle the following Monday.
