I hate tourists and snow birds

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I live in a beach area of Florida. I hate from November to April and June to October. Snow birds drive slower than poop. My child had violin lessons today across town, and a snow bird was going 25 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The tourists are worse. When you come visit an area, people here are not here as a service to you.

I'm sorry to hear about this. I live in a cold part of Canada. I don't have those troubles here. But then we have other troubles, like living in this climate most of the time.
It is good to be reminded to be courteous and kind when visiting other places!

 Here we have not only tourists and snowbirds but college students as well.  Just gotta leave some extra time to get from Point A to Point B in case you get stuck behind a slowpoke or some nimwit pulls a stupid and causes an accident.

I feel ya!  I live in a beach town in FL too.  I don't mind the tourists as much as the snow birds though.  I don't know why retired people from the north are so damn nasty, but they are.  Actually the ones from Canada are worst (I have nothing against Canadians, this is just a fact).  The tourists just clog up the roads and get in the way, but they aren't as bitchy since they are just looking to have a good time.

I bet you love what they do for your local economy.

Yes, they are lame. When someone drives up coastal highway one in California and stops over and asks which way is north? Yes, they are indeed lame.
