Don’t Be That Guy (On Vacation)
Every day we encounter annoying people. Even though vacation isn’t supposed to have any of the annoyances of every day life, annoying people take vacations too. Here are three guys you don’t want to be on vacation.
Guy Carrying All of His Earthly Belongings Onto the Airplane: This guy avoids paying luggage fee like my husband avoids chick flicks. He and each of his children bring overstuffed duffel bags onto the airplane. It takes them several extra minutes to sit down because they have to find overhead space to fit their voluminous carry-ons. All of his fellow passengers are inconvenienced because he slows boarding down, not to mention that he takes up more than his fair share of overhead space.
Chair / Beach Bed Saver Guy: This guy wakes up at the crack of dawn and spreads all of his earthly belongings (the same belongings he stuffed into the overhead bins the day before) across chairs at the pool as well as a set at the beach. He doesn’t spend much time in either set, but he wants his options open. Other resorts guests have a hard time finding a place to enjoy the day because this guy is hogging all the lounge chairs and beach beds.
Rude Guy: This guy’s mom apparently never told him about catching more flies with honey than with vinegar. He drips vinegar. From check in until check out, he is cross with everyone from front desk personnel, to wait staff in the restaurants, to the sweet housekeeper who cleans his rooms. Somewhere along the line he got the impression that if he did that, people would scurry to fulfill his wishes. He should try being nice and see how that works out for him.
What other guys should you avoid being on vacation?
