The Ones Who Leave Their Trash On The Side Of The Road
From Redditor u/RazzleberryJamCakes:
The ones that leave their trash and broken sleds (though some call them sleighs, or even snowboards, which is just so wrong) out in the forest and on the sides of the road every winter. So lame.

The Ones Who Always Ask The Locals To Party With Them
From Redditor u/pspisy:
Miami, FL, here. I'm a woman, and I spend a lot of time at the beach, usually alone. Tourists, always men, will come up to me and ask me if I like to party, where's the party, come over here and party with their friends, we're not from here and we're looking for a good time, want to call your girlfriends and come party at our hotel? Etc., etc., etc. I can tell they're tourists from their aggressive sunburns and terrible fashion sense.

The Ones Who Pretend To Be Chill But Are Actually Passive-Aggressive
From Redditor u/seriouslydude444:
Windsurfers/kiteboarders from California. They have the facade of "chill" but are entitled and passive-aggressive. They've driven the housing prices up so much that people who've lived here their entire lives can no longer afford to.

The Ones Who Don't Pay Attention To Their Surroundings
From Redditor u/mandraulic54:
I don't travel a lot, but I live in St. Augustine, which gets more tourists every year. The tourists who don't pay attention while on vacation are the worst. Oh let me just walk in front of the US-1 Business during rush hour without looking because I can.

The Ones Who Use People's Private Property As A Public Park
From Redditor u/doodlewacker:
I live in a tourist town at the beach. For three+ months a year, my town has had its population more than quadruple. With that many different people here each week you get a lot of different things. The most frustrating thing for me is that the tourists seem to drive 10-15 miles an hour SLOWER than the speed limit. Everywhere they go. It drives me insane. They also tend to leave a lot of trash behind on the beach. It seems that their brains go on vacation too. Just a general lack of respect. My house is close to a popular destination, and if you make a wrong turn (which happens a lot), my driveway/yard is the first one you come to. I get people turning around IN MY YARD. I've had people walk their dogs in my yard and not clean up, have a picnic lunch beside my driveway... but at the end of the day, it is a general lack of respect for my town that bothers me the most and makes me wonder how they act when at home.

People who have no idea to behave in a city, regardless of nationality. Remember, people live here and are trying to have a normal day, we're not on vacation speed.
