40 Times Entitled Tourists Thought The Rules Don’t Apply To Them

Published 4 months ago

Few things are as frustrating as witnessing people disrespecting things that deserve our reverence—whether it’s the environment, culturally significant sites, or even simple traffic rules like stopping at a stop sign. Unfortunately, entitled tourists often display this disrespectful behaviour, acting as if the world is their playground.

If you’ve been fortunate enough to avoid encountering such individuals, count yourself lucky. But prepare yourself for some exasperating images as we delve into a collection of the most entitled and ignorant tourist behaviours out there. Consider this list a cautionary manual on what not to do when travelling. Scroll down at your own risk, but beware: you might find yourself feeling more than a little irked before you reach the end.

NapQueen: Always try and learn a few basic words in the local language of where you’re travelling to! Don’t always demand that everybody should speak English! Gets me so annoyed.

Craig Boddys: All fun and games until the kid gets attacked. Should gather all the arseholes like these idiots up, put them in a glass box, and have a “reverse zoo”, where the animals can come and look at the reason humanity is doomed – the dumb are only outnumbered by the dumber.

#4 Do Not Cross The Line

Jrog: Yeah, DON’T. Those are REAL soldiers, with REAL training and REAL weapons. The best outcome is you find yourself a loaded SA80 trained on your face with an angry Scotsman yelling “GET BACK”. Every single time I have been to the Tower of London I have seen some tourist, usually a girl and typically American or Asian, try the same idiotic selfie and acting shocked afterwards.

#36 “Please Do Not Climb”

Image source: outdatedopinion

Jrog: Mispresented. The photo shortly predates the climbing ban enforced in June 2019. The tourist are going up the hill on an official, marked path that at the time of the photo was still accessible, despite the Anangu local population campaigning for closing the path altogether. Not doing so was a matter of personal choice, the “traditional law” mentioned was not “actual law”. after the government finally announced they accepted the requests and before they enforced the closure of the path, there was a short spike of touristic visits from people climbing for the last time. That’s when the photo was taken.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
