Obnoxious and Awkward Things Done By American Tourists

There's a stereotype about American tourists being obnoxious. It's easy to picture us waddling around, touching artifacts and complaining about "how run down this ancient castle looks." Lucky for us, sort of, a few other big and rich countries are also known for having horribly entitled tourists. Of course it's bad that there's more entitlement in the world, but it's at least better to not be the only ones that everyone completely disdains. But here are some really dumb and obnoxious things American tourists said and did. And here are some dumb complaints people had for their travel agency as well as some weird habits in the U.S.

Wild Things Students Did To Make Themselves Legends

There are a few reasons students become legendary. Sometimes it was a prank or wild thing that that student did and got away with. Sometimes it was a moment of defiance against some stupid school rule. Some of these are memorable because they're straight up dumb, but you be the judge. No one heard from us that it's a good idea to hide 30 open jars of mayo in the vents before leaving for summer. For some extra shenanigans, here are some mad lads who made the world their big briny oyster.

People's Most Incriminating "It's Not What It Looks Like" Moments

Mistaken intent and serious misjudgment can be a real monkey on our backs. Sometimes it feels like we're all working just to prove to other people that we're not horrible creeps, thieves or morons. Most times it's easy to not look like a lascivious rabble-rouser. But sometimes you're caught in a vulnerable position bending over to grab a pen cap and there's just no convincing your coworkers that you weren't just trying to smell your boss's chair. What can you do. Here are some times people proved they weren't the dumb one, or for some more foibles, bold and mistaken customers who were at the wrong store.

First Dates That Made People Go "Screw This I'm Out"

It's really honestly not that hard to not be a horrible date. As long as you have basic hygiene, pay some attention to the other person and refrain from telling that one story (you know the one), you're probably going to be okay. With that said, people have some pretty bad first dates. Here are some other times people had "screw this I'm out" moments.

The Most Disrespectful Houseguests People Have Had

Every person's house is a castle, and sometimes castles get put under siege. Whether it's the neighbor's horrible kid, a random dude who got in during a party, or a brother-in-law who needs to stay for one night for six months, we've all had moments that made us wonder "why do I ever let people in here." The bar never seems to hit rock bottom when it comes to the worst houseguests people have experienced. Sometimes distance isn't even enough in the case of people's worst neighbors.

People Tell Their Age In Non-Numerical Fashion

Like anyone else, our best years are behind us. Or at least they seem that way, since human beings are pretty much psychologically incapable of remembering things accurately. We all want to look back at our VHS tapes and dangerous toys and say that's when we had it all figured out or "young people could never understand this," but in the end it's really just a way of dating yourself. But hey, that's nostalgia, baby.

Wholesome Things People Did For The Love Of The Game

As miserable as other people can make us, and as meaninglessly complex life can get, it's at least a good reminder that doing good things for other people actually makes us feel good. It's really not that complicated. To test your moral mettle, indulge in the shopping cart theory of morality. For some wholesomeness, here's a tumblr thread ageless matriarch that is mamaw or this twitter thread on this movie theater's favorite customer.

People's Brilliant Ideas That Were Dumb Upon Review

It could be caused by inebriation, tiredness or just our own lack of mental faculties, but we get bad ideas. Sometimes our ideas are phenomenal, but that's only because we've just "invented" something that already exists. As stupid as our brilliant thoughts are, we can all have faith that even a stupid thing we invent could be used for something other than its intended purpose.

Occupations People Are Sure No One Enjoys

We don't always have a ton of choice where we get to work, especially when you're just entering the working world. Find anything customer-facing and you'll have to deal with ridiculous customer demands. And don't think every good-looking job is perfect, because there are also those jobs that look easy or fun but are surprisingly difficult. With some jobs the work is alright but everyone else is horrible, in the case of these jobs people quit on the first day. In summary, it's rough out there, man.

Random Tumblr Gems To Hack Through With A Machete

The land of Tumblr is one of intrigue, passion, and horribly stupid observations. Just one look at anonymous quips and gripes and we're off rifling through tumblr gems like a goblin. Do we ever really learn anything? Yes, for a second. Then it's gone again, pitched into the ether with so many other TILs and fancy curiosities. But there's no stopping the glowing aura of those sparkling tumblr gems uncovered from the deep.

The Worst Neighbors People Have Experienced.

A bad neighbor is one of those problems you just kind of have to deal with until it moves away, gets evicted, or dies on its own. Every kind of housing situation has its downsides. Living in an apartment complex and hearing someone's extra-curricular activities sucks. Living next to someone who keeps throwing dirty diapers on your lawn is a phenomenal way to be constantly frustrated. Didn't Sartre say that hell is other people? For some absolute animals who made it into people's homes, here are people's worse houseguest experiences.

Unconventional Problems Skinny People Have

The skinny aren't really seen as a group that gets a ton of hate, but no population is without its unique obstacles. Like, even the tall have tall people problems from the constantly cramped. Upon review, it seems like the skinny have a much harder time floating than the rest of us, plus their lack of ass padding makes sitting a challenge. What a world.

Mad Lads Who Made The World Their Big Briny Oyster

The world is full of rules, and that's just not acceptable for these mad lads who blazed their own trail. The way of the mad lad is one of deceit, manipulation, and a commitment to the bit. It's a lonely road because so few of us choose chaos, but when it works, it works. May the mad lads of the world reap the rewards of their toil.

The Weirdest Colors Paint Store Employees Had To Match

Employees have to deal with a lot of ridiculous customer demands that make work frustrating, but sometimes people just want something really weird. Paint and hardware stores specifically will have people walking in nonstop with random objects whose color struck them as something they would want all over their walls for the foreseeable future. This extends to soap, dirt, melons and body parts.

People Who Had To Choose Between Partners and Pets

It's a not-unheard-of occurrence in relationships: "either the dog goes or I go." People who set this kind of ultimatum often have a very uninformed view on how much people like their pets. If the cat has been around for 10 years and you've been around for 3 months, don't expect an outcome in your favor. That said, pets aren't always stoic beacons of morality. For example here's Prancer, the irredeemable dog and these pets who shamelessly wrecked stuff.

The Worst Houseguests People Have Experienced

We like to think that there's a sort of conduct standard for all houseguests. But it only takes one houseguest to make us realize that it's the jungle out there, baby. And the worst time to realize that people are filthy animals is when that jungle is your home. It's hard to forget a rude and annoying thing a houseguest does, maybe because we feel so disrespected and inconvenienced when someone gleefully brings their crap personality into our private lives. Also, it doesn't help when someone leaves after cracking your toilet in half like they're the King Solomon of pooping.
