Local resident rages at tourists ‘ruining the place’

Tourism can bring a big economic boost to an area. But huge numbers of tourists can also create tension. A person who said they lived in a busy tourist destination took to Reddit to complain about irritating tourists.

‘Frequent_Artichoke’ said: “Don’t f*** carve your name on stuff! The amount of people who need to carve their names onto historical buildings and statues is just crazy. Don’t be an a**. You are ruining the place.”

A British tourist recently caused outrage when he was filmed carving a message onto Rome’s ancient Colosseum.

The resident claimed: “And respect people’s properties. Yeah, it’s a cute street with cute houses and charming gardens.

“But that does not give you the right to enter people’s private properties to peep in their windows, walk in their gardens and try to open their doors.

“A colleague is selling his house because he’s tired of people peeping in their windows and trying to open their door to have a look inside.

“He got yelled at for being inappropriate while he was sunbathing in his own garden by a tourist who let themself in the gate and walked around the house to have a look at his garden.”

It might sound hard to believe but some tourists do overstep the boundaries with private property.
