Why are so many tourists behaving badly?

What is going on? In the past week, my news feeds have been filled with headlines about tourists who have seemingly lost their minds and others who have decided tourists themselves are fair game.


First there was this gem about a Dutch tourist who thought it was cool to give a Nazi salute at a Holocaust-era death camp.

Next up are some morons who thought they could immortalize themselves by scratching their own names over ancient carvings. It’s actually amazing that people this stupid know how to write.

Then, of course, there are airline passengers which continue to show levels of entitlement that would make Marie Antoinette blush like these folks who thought nothing of giving themselves upgrades to business class since the seats were empty.

Then there are the run-of-the-mill stories about people who can’t wear masks on flights, cause a fuss then force the crew to turn the plane around. I’m pretty sure there have been thousands of these incidents since the pandemic began so it’s getting to the point that they barely make the news anymore.

At least this guy who thought it was okay to grope a flight attendant has learned his lesson.

Although this guy only got a fine.

Then there are tragic stories like this one where a Mexican tourist visiting Canada was stabbed by a lunatic in a Tim Horton’s in Vancouver.

What does the rest of 2022 have in store?
