True. I worked at a Dutch hotel company for years and also handled complaints which escalated to Head Office. In my first week, I got a call from a guy who didn't want to receive our mailings because it traumatized him. The reason being, his wife and he stayed at one of our (golfing) hotels and, while they were sitting on the balcony, his wife got hit by a golf ball. His request to Front Office to call the police so they could arrest the golf player, was not met with enthusiasm. Which is why he called me - 4 years later.
An other customer called because they booked the orange room but found it too orange to their liking.
An elderly couple booked a peaceful weekend getaway in a beautiful hotel located in the country, but found there to be too many birds and other wildlife.
Ah well, I could go on and on. You would not believe the stuff people complain about (just to get a refund)... very funny.
As are many of the jokes on here (which I by now have forgotten already, except for the ketchup one and the algebra one - hilarious!).
