The party poopers at the humor magazine The Idler
-- the same bunch who filled your brain with workplace horror in Crap Jobs
-- now put a damper on the beloved annual getaway with hilarious true stories of nightmare vacations. Here, in all their hideous glory, are tales of leaky caverns, dodgy campsites, and bug-infested bedrooms in "luxury" foreign hotels. We've got dysentery disasters, land-mine-littered beaches, irretrievably lost luggage, and hours of exotic tarmac-sitting at the world's top airports -- not to mention Crap Vacation sex, crime, and toxic food you pay far too much for.
So if you're making plans to get away from it all, make sure you're not going somewhere you'll want to get away from. Let Crap Vacations be your guide down that old holiday road. Getting back to the nine-to-five grind has never seemed to tempting.
From the geniuses behind "Crap Jobs" come hilarious stories of vacation hell--tales of broken dreams, travel sickness, and horrible roadtrips.
