    Heat wave discourages Scots

    Friends of mine works for one of the larger holiday companies in the UK, today he got a call from their Glasgow office.
    A chap had called to ask if he could cancel his group booking (12 guys) trip to Thailand.
    His reason was: it was 28c in Glasgow today and they have been told it is much hotter in Thailand, they don't think they can handle it !
    I am sorry to say their request was denied, they will be on their way in August.

    We could have a whip round to pay immigration to not let them in.

    Most of the scots I know wouldn't know how hot it is here as they never leave the aircon bar.

    Looks like they'll have to pack their summer kilts.

    That's because the aircon is free.

    They are now experiencing the hot sunny summer and have worked out that a holiday in good weather locally may be a better deal,and Thailand can wait.
    They could take out travel insurance and cancel,then claim.
