Expedia just released a survey of hoteliers that asked which nationality makes the best tourists. The Japanese came in first. Americans were eleventh.
Americans scored highest in generosity, but were demoted for being noisy and complaining a lot. Which leaves me wondering how these categories were weighted. Wouldn’t you prefer a noisy, critical guest who left a big tip to a quiet, complacent guest who stiffed you?
HERE, HAVE A BAG OF MONEY, YOU INCOMPETENT! I’d love to hear that. (Aside from the money part, I often do.)
