whatshisname: The drunken British contingent seems to change locations every few years. Don't worry, folks, in 3 or 4 years, they'll be off spending their money and puking all over Croatia or somewhere.


=============

I was watching some travel show that had done an episode about Croatia.  While they were filming in some restaurant a commotion erupted off to the side.  As it turned out there were a couple of tables of female English tourists who were trying to dine and dash. The restaurant staff dragged them back in and called the police.

RayD8: Aussies are as bad, if not worse.
Then we have American tourists. At least the Brit and Aussie tourists have the excuse of drunkenness. The Americans are sober asshats.

Why do American tourists speak so loudly?
So you can hear them over their clothes.
You can always tell when a plane full of British tourists lands. The whining can still be heard after the engines have been shut down.



I assure you, when I visit Prague in November, I will be a drunk American with class.

British people on "holiday" exemplify the expression, "a wretched hive of scum and villainy".

ongbok: She seems to have the same attitude and complete lack of understanding that a lot of people have in this thread. They have the attitude of "If they sell alcohol I can act like a total ass, and if they don't like it don't sell alcohol." And they completely miss the point that they don't care if you come to drink, it is you acting like beligerant assholes that they have a problem with. And no, because they sell alcohol or have a party resort doesn't mean they shoulld accept people acting like assholes.


It's possible to drink excessively and not become a belligerent asshole?

Or are you saying that British tourists shouldn't drink excessiavahahohoahahaha!

I can't even finish that sentence.

You can't just say "British" - you need to narrow it down a bit:

Top 10 Places Where People Reside Who Can't Handle Alcohol When Traveling On Vacation:

1. Northwest England, UK
2. Bayonne, New Jersey
3. Thuringia, Germany
4. London, UK
5. Central Transdanubia, Hungary
6. Kosovo
7. Cleveland, Ohio
8. Monaco
9. The Dutch
10. Breckinridge, Oklahoma

I've worked in hospitality a few years, and almost always lived in tourist towns.
Aussies and Brits are assholes to everyone when they're drunk. Americans are assholes drunk or sober - but usually only to anyone who's working a job. And they give bribes. They think every country that's not USA is a third world hellhole, and all they have to do is bribe their way in or out of anything, which is farking hilarious.

OLD NEWS IS SO EXCITING!!!

I did a Euro-backpack thing for 2 months in 1990.  In Ios we made friends with a hotel owner who was about 4 years into owning his business.   He said when the Brit tourists came stumbling off the boats he'd tell them he was sold out regardless of how many romms he had available.   He said the trouble they brought, the mess they made and their sheer jerkoffishness made it not worth giving them a room.  Americans, he said, were mostly ignorant loudmouths but they were polite, left good tips and were no trouble.

I really can't see the point of travelling great distances to go on holiday, if you're going to spend half your time  drunk or hungover. Maybe it's the fact that I'm a Kiwi and NZ is so remote that making it to another country is an accomplishment in itself, but I want new experiences when I'm on holiday. I can get shiatfaced well enough at home.
 
2013-07-20 12:29:42 AM
As I've seen plenty of Americans do it I would like to use the no true Scotsman defence.  These aren't Brits, they're chav scum, you'd get a similar thing if a bunch of innercity guido's escaped from the states and landed in a place full of sun, half naked women and very very very cheap booze.

The only people going to these destinations are the ones who want to get pissed, get in to fights and then sleep it off in the sun for a few weeks.  As a Brit I have very little problem on holiday, even in Spain because I don't go to those resorts as I'm not looking to either get pissed, in to a fight or sleep of the resultant headache.

"Dammit Frank keep it together."

As someone who, any minute now, will have to go to the corner bar and drag a friend back to my place, I lol'd (literally) at your pic. He had a terrible day and it's more or less a given that he's passing out here because I'm about five doors from where he's getting 'faced. If I strained my ears enough I bet I could hear him getting in a fight over darts or football stats.

/not in the mood to be in a bar tonight so my GF is keeping him company
//yes, I trust both of them, and she doesn't drink much so she can help drag his giant ass back to my place

Sounds as if they have nobody to blame but themselves.  Young adults [on holiday or not] are retarded, regardless of ethnicity or nationality.  So then treat them like the retards they are.

If they're stumbling out of bars intoxicated almost to the point of collapsing, then you institute rules that forbid bartenders from giving additional drinks to people who are clearly beyond their limit.  Also, require bouncers that will toss people who are clearly beyond their limit but are still be snuck drinks.

If you clamp down on the 10% that is causing 90% of the mischief, things will sort themselves out quickly.

I tended bar for some years (and made more money than at my 'real' job). Putting the blame on the bartender is usually unfair. For starters, drinkers can be at the cusp of stupidity but still forming complete sentences while ordering a drink, and then hit the bathroom with three Mexican valiums. You can get a sense as to who you don't want to serve, but without any real proof you just serve them, especially in a pedestrian-based tourist town like I live in. Suddenly the bartender is liable? People turn into monsters in minutes. It wasn't my job to babysit your sorry asses, although that's what I did.

man this same thing happened to me once when I went to Rhodes, there was a special for the brits to fly there dirt cheap and they just behaved like uncaged animals.  The funny thing was, i was in my early 20's and when i saw how they got absolutely completely shiatfaced hammered i basically decided to stop partying like i would normally and decided to really scale back on my alcohol consumption.  Honestly watching that was something between a tragedy and horror story it really was.

miss diminutive: It just seems like this is a slight variation of the Greater Internet Farkwad Theory, where people assume that just because they aren't in their hometown (or home country) they can behave like raging dipshiats.


Speaking as someone who's lived in Florida for 32 years, I couldn't agree more. The fact that tourism negates us having a state income tax is the only thing keeping us from wholesale tourist slaughter. Oh, and the fact that they do a pretty go job of offing themselves, like feeding the nice alligator by hand and petting the pretty snake and riding a sailboard during a hurricane....

See You Next Tuesday: Judging from your horrible command of YOUR OWN LANGUAGE, I'd wager you've woken up in your fair share of vomit-puddles, some of which were yours, some not.


My language?  Dear boy I'm speaking fluent American other wise you inbred retards complain.  Don't like it?  Don't complain when I spell COLOUR correctly.

Besides aren't you supposed to be busy raping babies just like your daddy did to you?  Go on you know you love it.

whatshisname: Why do you have to go all the way to Turkey to get drunk?



FYI, I'm not a drinker and don't get the whole "drink yourself stupid" idea either.. 
But why spend the money to do it? This whole concept is the dumbest thing ever..

 I'm going to spend a bunch of money to fly to another country and stay in a resort and do the exact same thing I could do at home, except here i get to offend a bunch of people and give my country a bad name
in the process..

Good grief..Just stay home and barf all over your own streets and let your own cops
shuffle your stupid butt home. I imagine it's also just wonderful for all of the non-party crowd who
go there to just relax, see the sights and get some warmth..They have to put up with these a-holes
in town and in their resorts.

Cheap flights, cheap hotels, cheap drinks, too much sun - what do you expect? Even the dregs of British society can afford a week at one of these shiathole resorts. Our drinking culture is terrible though, it was only when I went abroad for the first time that I realised that drunken fights, men walking round with bloodied shirts and head-wounds, drunk women passed out on the street etc wasn't normal.

I can say that the Russians are the up and comers in the "Idiot Abroad" stakes though. More and more of them can now afford to go to these types of resorts too and they're probably the rudest, most ignorant bunch of people I've ever seen. Don't know how to queue, treat the waiters/hotel staff etc like dirt. On the plus side, the wives/mistresses are usually much younger than the men and dress like prostitutes so they're not all bad I suppose.

Though speaking from experience, Canadians can be shiatheads as well, especially in Thailand. But everyone is, over there. Hated visiting Thailand. Should have stayed in the Philippines.
