World's Worst Tourists

Unread postby rebelwithoutaclue » Thu Jul 09, 2009 2:16 pm

The French. Why did they have to do a study for this? You could have asked 1000 random people and 90% would have guessed the French as biggest assholes.

Reasons: They don't bother to learn any of the language of the country their going, then get pissy when people don't understand them. Also, they don't tip.

And the French response (in true French asshole tradition): "Our country is so magnificent, nobody ever leaves for vacation, they all stay here."

The Japanese ranked as the best tourists, also not a stretch as they are generally very polite.

Eff that, Asians are the worst hands down.

Mainly because they usually travel in a pac of sixty and are "ooh aah" -ing the entire time while taking picture of every single gawd damn wall along their path.

A freaking cab could drive by and they would stop to stare, completely unaware of the fact that they are blocking a sidewalk or a crosswalk and destroy it. They have no understanding of their surroundings or the people that are around them.

Not to mention that Asians NEVER tip.

French are bad, but feh.

And Asians travel to the US in FAR greater number than the french.

Eh, the one french transfer student to my high school senior year a couple years back was a really nice guy, actually was a huge American football fan and played on our team for the year he was here. He actually was a Browns fan too. But I think the reason for all of that was because he was from the country side rather than Paris, which is where the real A-holes come from.

I don't disagree but as a point of order, this was a world traveler poll, with the 4,500 people polled working in hotels all over the world.

I guess the difference I see between French tourists and Asian ones is, French people are usually assholes on purpose; if Asians are rude, it's usually because they don't know any better. They come from a very respectful society.

Fair enough.

I mean, eurotrash is eurotrash and it is not just the French.

That said, I don't care if they are annoying on purpose or not, Asian tourists drive me insane in the U.S. However, if your poll is globally based I could see the results being different.

I've never understood the hatred towards the French. They're arrogant and think their country is the best in the world. Hmmmm Sound like anyone you know?

To be honest, i've traveled more outside of the US than in it, so I haven't encountered that many tourist. There were some assholes in Vegas, they were from Vermont.

When I was at the Grand Canyon, this bus pulled up and about 80 Asians got off. They spent 20 seconds looking at the canyon before a squirrel wandered by. The Asians immediately turned and began snapping photo after photo of the squirrel, completely ignoring the Grand Canyon.

I dont think anyone is joking. We are the best in the world (some like to call that arrogance, I like to call it...well... arrogance :thumb up: ). Talk to me next time people are risking their lives in a rigged up refrigerator boat trying to sail across shark infested water to sneak in to the British Kingdom or any other contry for that matter, or when someone bears 120 degree desert heat and crazy Arizonians with shotguns trying to kill them just to get in to our country. Then because we are the best country in the world we help these people, give them money, education, healthcare etc.

I will say you guys are certainly in the silver medal game, but the gold is locked up.

Strange that the article didn't mention Americans...

I remember reading an article like this one a year or so ago about a poll taken then, and it basically put Americans in the middle of the pack. The general reason was that there are some number of stereotypical obnoxious Americans who travel, but there are enough other Americans (including those who make an extra effort to not be the stereotype) that it balances things out.

Because you know someone will soon come up with the standard responses to the "We're the Bestest in EVERYTHING" comments.

Like bringing up poverty rates, standards of education, infant mortality rates, % of people with no health insurance, etc.

How about the fact that we bailed your asses out in the past when Chamberlain was just looking to placate the Nazis? How about the fact that we rebuilt Western Europe and Japan? How about the fact that a staggering amount of innovations have come from here due to a system that rewards (or at least did in the past) creativity, ingenuity, and the ability to convince people to buy your product?

There's a pretty good reason masses of people from around the world have come to settle here. How odd is it that a country would have a motto like "e pluribus unum" or document that they believe all men are created equal due to God's design?

I'd say it's the high minded ideals that we don't always fully operate under but we do aspire to. Those ideals are transferable.

We also have no aristocracy. No royalty. Our political theory doesn't center around the head of state.

So do I think the US is the greatest nation on the planet? Yes. I'd betcha most Americans feel that way too and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Never would imply we are perfect, and never will be, but I dont think it is a stretch to say we are the farthest along. We have our flaws, but on the whole the US is overwhelmingly good.

I am certainly proud to be an American and I would expect citizens of other countries to feel exactly the same about their country. Who gives a shit who is "the best"? We're all humans and citizens of the world and we need to work together. Far more in common than not.

Yes, I'm aware that this basically makes me a hippie. Time to stock up on the patchouli.

You wing nut GOP people kill me. You may be the most unfair wannabe intelectuals masquerading your true intentions as a group; ever.

Crippling deficits are only an issue when they are a result of spending money on Americans and not Arabs who burn our schools we build them and try to kill us.

What happened to caring about America first? We just gave up. Pigged out, consumed, looked the other way under the Bushes.

Used to be a stigma if you bought foreign. Used to be Wall mart's slogan was made in the USA for good.

God, you simps take your eye off the ball so easily, and hate Americans while waiving the flag.

He ran his campaign by pushing alot of bullshit, I saw past it and realized it will take a while, but since he set such high aspriations for himself, dont get your panties in a bunch when someone jokes around about it.

Whats good for America? Killing this Cap and Trade bill right now. Talk about not putting America first. Start right there. If Democrats push that through its going to get ugly, real ugly. Think Ohio, PA, MI, IN, IL, WV are bad now? Yeah, JB, Democrats are all about the little people.

You aren't joking. You were insulting the POTUS. OK, now I'm joking.

You are blaming the upper midwest's issues on the Democratic party? Really? Seriously?

Possible that it is just a small bit more complicated and complex? I don't agree with you often, Z, but never took you for some ditto head with no EEG. Talk seriously or toss off.

You may disagree with what Barry is doing. Good for you! Despite the best attepts of the cultural warrior wing nuts and greedy bastards who would sell out a fellow American for a single decent quarter on the balance sheet, it is still America. Disagree. All you want.

But at least this adminsitration has the correct agenda regarding what this nation needs to address instead of wankin' off to some neo con pipe dream about bringing western "democracy" to flaming radical funamentalist wahabbists and dumbing down all our educational resources cause the LD kids can't read.

Oh and for good measure... just curious. What brand car do you drive? Shop at Wal-mart or Target? Buy American as much as possible? Buy union as much as possible? Do you check the label of what you buy to see who you are supporting?

I'm not as good at it as my dad. But my dad is die hard as conservative as they come as well as my uncles. They only buy American (talking cars actually made here, not just a big 3), check the label on everything they buy and do all they can to buy American and union. Don't act like Conservatives or Republicans as a whole don't give a shit. Hell, you want to see something amazing. I drive around Boulder Colorado, hippyville USA probably 90% liberal. I venture to guess 25% of those people dont drive American cars.

I agree, Economy number one issue, and I wasnt blaming the problems in the midwest on Democrats, I wouldnt blame it on any one paticular thing or person. However I was just pointing out that if the Democrats were for the little people as much as they say this Cap and Trade bill would have never been brought up. It will destroy the people you are trying to protect. This thing gets passed, I have no doubt the GE plant my wife's dad works at will be closed up asap. They are already shipping half their work to Mexico, this will just accelerate it.

I drive a GM now, same as I've done for every vehical since my first 20 some yers ago. God knows not out of pure best product evaluation, but becasue it matters to me.

Hate to break it to your uncles, but you can not find a car made 100% in the USA. Marysville employs Ohioans.

I'd buy more American if I could. When I look for something, I will pay a few $ more if I have a choice between USA widget one and Asian widget 2. But we don't often get that choice, where it is Target or DoCut True value hardware.

Unions do not = America. You want common ground? We could likely find it here.

America first. Good luck fining hypocracy in me on that. Next.

1. That is an gross fear-based overreaction. Corporations piss and moan at this stage, but when forced they will quietly adapt new technologies. We need 50 X's as many coal-> gas plants dotting the whole Ohio River valley from East Liverpool to Porstmouth instead of just one in Wellsville. It's all seatbelts and airbags, fella. And if we don't make the first big move to green energy as the next game changer like coal and oil were, the Chi-comms will beat us at that , too, while we spend all out money on deficit and defense. Jesus. Wherw ould/could the domestic auto industry be if the EV1 weren't likked in the 90s while the goverment was bought and sold?

2. Like Mac says, good thing we have a system of government that despite rhetoric drives policy to the center as much as possible.

3. Your father in law is screwed, blued, and tatooed without valued added innovation and/or government regulation. Period. If lect unchecked, capitalism will always, a;lways, always follwo the cheapest source of labor, all other costs breaking even. As sure as the sun rises.

Yeah dude, they understand that. I should have specified assembled and highest % possible

Well good for you on at least checking, how many people dont? The hippies in Boulder will say they stand behind the little people and prance around at all their anti-war and global warming protest and then go drive around in their Subaru or Toyota and shop at Target to buy their cheap plastic shit from China... because Walmart is so for NeoCons.

I'm Asian, and yes... I sometimes get embarrassed when I'm on vacation with my parents, aunts and uncles, and cousins from the Philippines.

But they're just trying to soak it in. Not trying to be rude.

I've never encountered a French tourists so I cannot say anything about that.

Talk to me next time people are risking their lives in a rigged up refrigerator boat trying to sail across shark infested water to sneak in to the British Kingdom or any other contry for that matter, or when someone bears 120 degree desert heat and crazy Arizonians with shotguns trying to kill them just to get in to our country. Then because we are the best country in the world we help these people, give them money, education, healthcare etc.

I will say you guys are certainly in the silver medal game, but the gold is locked up.

Not to mention, we're the largest provider of foreign aid in the world.



largest producer of war and Nuclear weapons too


Don't blame us because we have to come bail you guys out because you cant control your European brethren. Thanks for the compliment on the Nuke's too, glad we could end that shit and save millions of American lives.



I prefer to thank the Russians for saving both of us in WW2
because well let's face it, it's historically accurate.

and yes I got pied mentioning the nukes lol
