Skip to comments.Russians snatch 'worst tourists' crown from Germans... even hiding sunloungers in their ROOMS

For years the Germans have been the undisputed champions of holiday rudeness.
But it seems their long reign has at last come to an end.
The Russians are now considered the most unpleasant holidaymakers in the world, a survey revealed yesterday.
They won first place thanks to their appalling taste in fashion, terrible table manners, and worst of all habit of hiding sunloungers in their rooms overnight to ensure a spot at the pool.
Those who holidayed in Spain, France, Cyprus, Malta, Italy, Turkey, Greece and Portugal took a dislike to Russians, claiming they:
* Took hotel sunloungers into their rooms to make sure they get a seat by the pool in the morning * Ate 'almost everything' at all-inclusive dinners - even taking doggie bags to stock up on grub * Flashed their money around and ordered hotel staff to be at their beck and call * Belched and swore in public areas such as hotel swimming pools and bars * Dressed like 'chavs' - wearing tracksuits and gold bling * Pushed into queues in bars and shops to be served first
Holiday-maker Geoff Hunt, 43, said his Turkish hotel was 'overrun' with Russian tourists in July.
He said: 'They were known as the 'Rude Ruskis' by everyone - even the Germans.
'They just barged into queues flashing their money and shouting.
'Two of them pinched four hotels loungers from the pool and took them to their room so they were guaranteed one in the morning.
'They swore and belched their way through hotel meals and took as much of the free food back to their rooms as they could.'
Holiday expert Gary Hewitt, who runs Real Holiday Reports website, said a 'flood' of UK holiday-makers had complained about the behaviour of Russian tourists his summer.

You have NO idea....I was on a boat full of them last year in Thailand. Coarse, rude, vulgar, insulting to the service people. I had never, ever seen anything like it. The Thai are so docile and polite. They would come along the beach to your cabana and try to sell purses, belts, etc. The Russians would go through everything they had, take an hour shuffling through their merchandise and then never buy anything. And then insult them.
So bad, so bad I can not even put into words.
When sunloungers are banned, only Russians will have sunloungers!
If the Russians keep it up, they’ll be regarded as even of lower class than the Obamaloon cabinet.
The Germans should know the Rooski for what he is...
Years ago we were on vacation in the Carrib. There were a bunch of German’s at the resort where we stayed. The resort staff organized “games” for guest entertainment. It was beach volleyball or pool volleyball or some made-up “resort olympic” event. It always divided out to be the Americans and Canadians against the Germans. For whatever reason this group of Germans were not particularly athletic but they were very hard on the staff. They argued every point and every detail of every event with the staff. In the end it was always the same; “It’s a TIE!!!” It became very funny, by the end of the week; it would always be a wholuppin’ that ended in a tie.
Reminds me of a certain group of people. Hmmm... who exactly?
In general, the more the rules, the less the self-control.
Conversely, the less self control, the more rules are necessary.
Adams said it about the Constitution:
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The left likes to think that the elimination of morals is a “freeing” agenda, when in reality, it only leads to oppression.
It’s just that your version of morality differs from mine.
And what “version” of morality do you believe Adams was referring to?
Obviously, the founders thought some “version” of morality was necessary for the people to live in liberty under our Constitution.
Whatever that morality might be, It certainly includes self-restraint, and being responsible for your own choices.
After all, how would anybody develop/distinguish self-restraint and responsibility if they are treated like children all their lives.
When people are subject to the natural (reality) consequences for their choices,
a certain “version” of morality tends to immerge that corresponds with that reality and avoiding the consequences of defying reality and that morality.
Some just don’t understand that this set of internal rules has already been provided.
