  3. 3. 2. At the hotel, you are shown a room which has neither the balcony nor the sea view which you‘ve asked for and paid for. Do you ... <ul><li>A) take what you‘re offered for the moment, but determine to get what you want in the morning? </li></ul><ul><li>B) refuse to accept the room and camp in the lounge? </li></ul><ul><li>C) smile and turn up the volume on your personal stereo (you knew things would go wrong)? </li></ul><ul><li>D) take the room, certain you‘ll be able to swap it later? </li></ul>

(You once read an article that said the sun can tan you even through thick clouds.) </li></ul>
  6. 6. 5. Doing the accounts at the end of the day, you realise that you handed over a 200 instead of a 20 denomination note as a tip for lunch. Do you ... <ul><li>A) go back to the restaurant, certain they‘ll give you a refund once you explain what‘s happened? </li></ul><ul><li>B) curse all foreigners and never leave another tip all holiday? </li></ul><ul><li>C) shrug your shoulders and write it off to experience? </li></ul><ul><li>D) have an enormous meal at an expensive restaurant to show that you won‘t let your holiday be spoilt by a little thing like money. </li></ul>
