Accomplished tourist makes disturbing blunder

A British tourist has made a disturbing mistake on the last leg of her cartwheeling tour around Cornwall.

Caroline Gough has stayed in a variety of pubs and guest houses all along the Cornish coastline and believed herself to be quite an accomplished and experienced guest.

However she admits that perhaps experience has led to complacency. “That might be the only way to explain what happened,” she told us.

After checking into her Penzance accommodation,¬†Caroline completed her bedtime routine and placed the all-important “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door of her bedroom.

“Imagine my surprise when my peaceful slumber was disturbed by a large amount of clattering and the tuneless singing of “Is this the way to Amarillo?” all before 8 o’clock in the morning.”

“In an absolute rage, I shot out of bed, only to discover a builder standing on scaffolding outside my third floor bedroom, shouting about how much he loves himself to his builder mate below and to everyone else who had previously been enjoying their holiday lie-in.”

“Then I realised my mistake.¬† I had put my Do Not Disturb sign on the bedroom door instead of hanging it out the window. Tonight I shall clamber up the scaffolding to hang the sign in a place where the builders will clearly see it. I’m sure they will treat it with the utmost respect and wait quietly and patiently in their van for me to wake up before they start their tuneless singing and relentless banging about.”
