We all dream of being somewhere distant or exotic, or why not both? Still, the chance for a long holiday somewhere is always slim, and we get to travel no more than a couple of times a year. The things we like about it the most are the new experiences and the sites we see. But it is not the same joy for the people who live where we would love to visit. We might be excited to be here or there, but locals would often look at us as the annoying tourists we might be without even realizing it. The list below shows how some people who live in holiday locations reacted when tourists acted in an annoying or weird manner. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The barefoot people
We know that more and more tourists choose India as their next destination to visit, but we know that doing things such as the one described here is not something you want to do.
2. The state
This is one person who is already fed up with tourists, and we could all agree that certain people out there can be incredibly obnoxious.
3. The destination
This is yet another thing that we guess would make the locals annoyed, as tourists ask it all the time. Canada is a huge country and everyone should know its size before going there.
4. The area
This is a post revealing that it does not matter if you are local or not. Tourists can be ungrateful and annoying despite your best effort to help them with something.
5. The ruins
We guess that tourists are sometimes too cruel and heartless in an attempt to take a picture, but this person did not stand for their inappropriate behavior.
6. The brother
Wow, this is something truly amazing to see, and we cannot believe that people out there would have the audacity to step inside someone’s home, not realizing it was real.
7. The Japanese couple
We guess that this is the kind of thing no tourist should ever do again. It seems that this person was able to witness an incredibly dangerous moment.
8. The elevator
We guess that some people feel the sudden urge to cause mayhem as soon as they leave their hometown, and they do things like the one described here.
9. The sister
We are quite certain that some tourists have no idea where they have been until they come home and start looking at photos. They need to be in the moment, not taking a million pictures.
10. The falls
This is one thing that nobody could stand for more than five minutes. These conversations with people who don’t know better are always painful.
11. The shout
We are quite certain that people who live in places that are popular among tourists are used to seeing such absurd situations all the time.
12. The beach town
People are not really aware of how big California is, or they are surprised to find out Canada has about a million less of population.
13. The town
There are moments when working at retail is harder than anything else. We are quite certain that this was a tough situation for the employee.
14. The tourist
Well, this is one thing that could show you why locals sometimes despise tourists and everything they do. This is simply an absurd situation.
15. The beach
We guess that people are sometimes too afraid for their own good, and it seems that what this family did was not the best idea of them all.
16. The destination
People don’t know any better when they are after a picture they could brag about to their friends when they return home. This is not a good idea most times.
17. The rush hour
We guess that locals are used to seeing tourists driving around at a very slow speed, but they are annoyed for sure when it happens too often.
18. The road
Those who live in places where there are no bears at all are fascinated by seeing them when they visit other places, but that could be a problem.
19. The beach
This is not something to be mad about, as people sometime see the sea or the ocean for the first time when adults, so there is no surprise here.
20. The groups
This is the kind of situation that those living in holiday areas are surely familiar with. But it is weird to see this happen in Detroit, we guess.
21. The people
People’s basic instincts seem to be helpless when the urge for a better photo is present. It seems that these people push their luck every time they do this.
22. The tours
This is the kind of thing that is only typical for the past decade or so, but people who live in touristy areas are already fed up with it.
23. The operator
We believe that some parents are not doing what they need to do in order to raise their kids the right way. This is an unacceptable type of behavior right here.
24. The house
We guess that this is a problem that not everyone would get, but it seems that people who are not living near the beach will never get this one.
25. The side of the road
This hilarious post is related to a serious problem that people often neglect. It seems that those who are trying to take such a picture need to be aware of the dangers involved.
26. The smokers
We understand that some people are too worried about this or that, but they need to learn the details about local laws and regulations before they judge.
27. The store
We know that some tourists are not good at finding sites to see, but this woman must have been confused by something, or distracted.
28. The large groups
This is not the kind of thing that would surprise us, but those who have never lived in a city packed with millions of tourists would find it hard to understand.
29. The resort
This is a post that shows not only one, but a few suggestions that demonstrate just how bizarre some tourists can be when they are abroad.
30. The expat
It seems that some people are never going to understand that they are not the only ones who get to leave their countries and travel to other continents.
31. The couple
We know that people who live in such areas are used to seeing millions of tourists, but it sometimes gets unbearable even for them.
32. The complain
Well, this is the kind of thing that you will never be able to explain to some people. This person needs to learn the concept behind maps.
33. The city
This is not something we understand quite well, as there is a lot more to see in the UK besides London or the other big cities on the island.
34. The ski town
It appears that working or living near such a place would always result in tourists asking you such bizarre or hilarious questions.
35. The area
We guess that this is the kind of question that could cause a local resident to both be annoyed and amused at the same time. This person had some fun, at least.
