Top 3 Signs You Are An Annoying Tourist

Working at a place like Disney World or Universal Studios may sound like a heck of a good time. What sounds like an even better time is actually visiting the theme parks; whether you are a local or come from the depths of some strangely spelled country, odds are you will have either a mediocre or satisfyingly great time. We aren't going to focus on the good side of that trip to Disney World though. Instead, we are going to point out that one person that made your trip that much more a regret rather than the best decision of your life.

Here are the top 3 signs that will assure you you've found an annoying tourist or you yourself are one:

3.Walking pace is similar to that of a crawling child
Come on now. We aren't all pushing around a stroller with our kids crying about how much they want to ice cream or go home because their feet hurt. People visit theme parks for all sorts of reasons and one of those reasons does not include having to dodge and surpass slow-walking human beings. At least stick to the sides of the walk way or, better yet, do us all a favor and increase your speed by at least 1 more mile per hour. 

Let's do the math here:
Group of tourists walking slowly towards shop "X" -  
Group of tourists walking slowly towards shop "X" =
No wasted time trying to dodge or painstakingly hit a child as you try to speed past everyone
2. Stopping in the middle of a walk way
If you've ever almost accidentally sexually molested someone on accident from behind then you know what this one is all about. Let's play back that memory you had of that one time you thought to yourself, "Seriously, you had to stop here of all places so no one else can get by you?"
It's a seemingly nice day out so, you decide to go to the mall and buy yourself a little something cause, well, it's payday. You see the store you've been searching for insight when all of a sudden BAM. A tourist stops you right in your tracks. All you were doing was walking behind them trying to reach your destination of choice however, that annoying tourist had bigger and better plans for you. That tourist decided to suddenly halt the rest of the foot traffic coming through the mall because he or she had to tie their shoe. In the middle of everyone's path. Why?
1. Origination: Brazil
You come with your tour group flags, your song-chanting travel groups, your luggage at the mall, and you feel as though the whole world is waiting on you. I don't think this needs much of an explanation.
By the way, if the best decision of your life is to take a trip to an amusement park full of the annoying kind of tourists then sincere condolences go out to you and your loved ones.
