What's wrong with romans?

#1 Post by blind-man » 12 Jan 2012 19:56

I've been to a lot of different cities and countries all over Europe, but romans are by far the most rude and downright impolite people I've ever met. Waiters almost throwing the dishes at your face at restaurants, people who work at tourist attractions refusing to speak English, people line skipping all the time (even in front of women and old people!). They live in such a beautiful city, so what the fuck is wrong with them?

In Italy you must be lucky to find people who know how to speak or write italian, let alone english.

YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

...Mad world

Uhm naaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, nooooooooooo, no definitely, people from Tuscany always make me laugh my ass off :mrgreen:
Maybe the waiters of Florence didn't study in a 5 stars restaurant, but I'm far from calling them rude :P
people who work at tourist attractions refusing to speak English


No wonder.
Italian people sometimes are refusing also to speak italian language correctly. Some of them are even sitting in the italian parliament.

I would also be rude to tourists if you couldn't move a foot within your city without stumbling over one. :mrgreen:

Yeah, they should just ban all tourists from Rome and watch as the majority of the city's businesses go bankrupt. Maybe when they're all unemployed, they will learn to respect tourists. :wink:

I'm from Vienna, I live in a city that makes millions with tourists. It was a joke. :mrgreen:

But with a grain of truth. If you can't stroll through the nicest parts of your city without being afraid of being run over by thousands of tourists -every day- it can get annoying. Ask people in Prague. :wink:

according to data from the Region of Tuscany, in 2011 in my region there were about 11.5 million foreign tourists for a total of about 42 million days of attendance ...

I do not live in fear that next year is not no tourist ....
