People act different on vacation.
And when your everyday life takes place in a popular tourist destination, you witness how weird people can be firsthand. A recent Reddit thread asked, "If you live in an area heavily visited by tourists, what is the dumbest thing you've seen tourists do?" The answers prove that we all lose our minds a little when we're on vaca.
Oh man I worked at a liquor store on Clearwater beach. The tourists that came in with severe burns, blisters, it was awful. Especially the people from England. They were just burnt to a crisp and miserable. They saved up for god knows how long to come here and they spend the first day lying on the beach and the rest of their vacation was ruined for them. - Beths_tties
I work at an aquarium near the beach. One day a couple came in holding a cup and explained to me that they had found a crab on the beach. They were concerned that he was in distress and were not sure how to best take care of it, so they brought it to me. I look at the cup and see a very dead hermit crab.
Basically they kidnapped a crab from his home, drowned him in a cup full of ozarka bottled water, and gave him to me to throw away. - fruitsuitriot
