Like Popeye said, I'm glad this was only a 7 minute short. Any longer and it might have been MORE tedious. This is an unfunny, boring episode with a stupid twist of the customer's name actually being What Zit Tooya. Also, I'm not surprised that Eugene "McCheapo" Krabs wouldn't actually give away a vacation, but it was still a slap to the face for poor Squidward. 4/10.
Ugh, terrible episode. Not a lot of humor in here made me laugh in fact what humor? Like everybody said the name twist was awful and stupid and the ending was unfair with the brochure. I know that Squidwatd went overboard with stealing the guy's wallet but the prize being a brochure was stupid and somehow unsatisfying. And I don't think the story was that good. Don't watch this episode, 0/10
While I don't hate this episode quite as much as one of its partners, that being Boat Smarts (I'm aware that's a pretty rare opinion to hear), I still think it's bad. It's just a pointless episode with a lot of stupid puns, especially the one of the customer Squidward had tried to get the name of the whole episode (I for some reason thought the pun was hysterical when I was a kid and it made me love this episode). Plus the ending was a shameless ripoff of SB Meets the Strangler. The squid abuse isn't honestly too bad here, since he did kinda deserve karma for his actions, though even I will admit that he was a bit too excessively punished at the end of the episode. Nevertheless, while this episode is perhaps a little bit overhated, it is still a bad episode with a half-assed plot, terrible puns, and is just plain dull in general.
This episode is just boring. Nothing about it really entertained me. It's an episode that nobody ever seems to bring up, and for good reason. And the "twist ending" is just so bland and predictable. It's not the worst Season 5 short, but it's far from the best. It gets a D. It's a shame too, because with a few more jokes this could have been good.
