Clive Emerson and his wife have been coming to Majorca with the family twice a year since 1987, but the hotelier from Northumberland said yesterday that they're seriously thinking about never coming back. Emerson is the first to admit that he loves Majorca, but he said yesterday that the five of them have popped down for a quick seven-day break and he has never been treated so badly. “What's happened to the attitude of people, they're all so niggling and petty, but these things become real pain and I don't know if we're coming back. “I've been coming here for years and we've stayed all over the island, but for the first time ever, this week I was asked for my passport when I was paying by credit card. What is more, the cashier in the supermarket spoke to me in English, as soon as there was a problem she started speaking Spanish.” “I work in tourism myself so I know what I'm talking about and this time everyone's attitude to tourists seems to have changed and it's really annoyed me.” Emerson also said that on their beach, at one end the pedallos are for four people and the other end for six, but as they have three small kids, one for four is enough, but the pedallo franchise will not let them hire one for four. “It's all these little things that are spoiling the holiday, the attitude sickens me,” Emerson said. “And owning a hotel, all these things are more apparent to me,” he added. “I always read the Bulletin when we're here and I'm reading about the problems in the tourist industry and to top it all everyone's got a bad attitude, what's wrong with people?”
