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 love tourists. I live in Vegas and if it wasn't for tourists then many of us wouldn't have jobs. Yeah their driving sucks ass and their arrogance is annoying but eh as long as they're losing their money on our slots then I don't care lol.

My grandparents are snowbirds. They have a condo at a country club down there.

They do indeed drive slower than poop.

Every state gets tourists and seasonals.
My mom is from and still lives in fl and she goes to Vermont every summer to get away from the heat.

I visited Boston about 8 years ago and really enjoyed it. I live in a tourist area and after having to find our way around the city I came home with a new appreciation and patience for the tourists that come here. I wish I could have stayed longer in Boston, I flew in for only 4 days and it wasn't nearly enough time. Everyone was so nice and I really just fell in love with the city.

Quoting christina0607:

I live in New England and fall is hell here. People drive slow and look at dying leaves. It blows my mind. Then they will stop people and ask where the best leaves are...seriously? My answer is standard "the trees".

I totally feel for you.

You think Florida tourists are bad drivers? I lived in North Pole Alaska..tourists there are a Freakin hazard!! At least in Florida you have nice dry road and not massive sheets of ice that you have to drive on!

LOL ... I was just thinking the same thing.  If it wasn't for those 30 million Canadians going to Florida every year, imagine what the Florida economy would look like.

Oh, you mean those folks who are helping drive your state's economy?  Yeah those folks are LAME!

I live in Hawai'i...and yes tourism helps our state but yeah alot of tourists and snow birds are straight up rude, ignorant, loud, obnoxious etc.... we just try to ignore them as best we can. Here's a funny quote from a movie that made real Hawaiians look silly.. "damn you tourists! coming ovah hea stealing our pineapples and making my sistah clean your room!" LOL (50 first dates) oh and we get alot of annoying military too...they get discounts for EVERYTHING even the flippin' movies...ridiculous...but there is good in everyone and you just have to suck it up and deal...or move...
