It’s no wonder Europeans don’t like American tourists

Gadling blogger Jeffrey White wrote about a YouTube video some guys posted about their visit to Venice. In the video, the guys have bet one of their friends that he can’t jump from a dock to one of the poles that poke out of the water and back to the dock without getting wet.

The guy makes the first jump and manages to catch the pole without getting wet. And then the pole breaks under water and the guy swims back to his friends. No word as to whether he was able to claim the money his friends had anted up or if the bet was off.

It’s asshattery like this that causes American tourists to have a bad reputation with the rest of the world. Rest assured if the tables were turned and some European tourists had broken these guys’ mooring pole that they’d be pretty pissed and ranting on YouTube about the whole incident.

Oh and if you are going to post videos on YouTube, do the world a favour and don’t whine about the fact that the memory in your camera is getting low. Geez.
