Tourist dollars help out ones community. A small price to pay for a little inconvenience.

I feel your pain. I have two jobs and one deals with the public in the amusement industry. Come Memorial Day weekend, the idiots come out of the woodwork. My heart goes out to all the public service employees out there. Especially during this time of year.

I couldn't agree more. For several years I lived in an area that relies heavily on the almighty tourism dollar - only I never referred to them as "tourists", they were "terrorists". They take over everything & every place from the lake to amusement parks to restaurants to campgrounds to resorts & the roads....like swarms of starving cockroaches. Of course they're entitled to their vacations & time away from the hustle & bustle of their every day lives, as we all are, but they could at least attempt to be pleasant to the locals who are providing the services they're so rudely demanding.

Sounds like where I used to live in Alaska. Once king salmon season hits it is tourist season until the fall. The town would go from 3000 to 15000 with all of the tourists and cannery workers.
But cause I was a local, I knew how to avoid em

I never understood the idea of celebrating our murdered soldiers.
Some will lie and say this is a day of rememberence.
If so the question I ask is why do we not remember the lies that got our loved ones murdered.
Memorial my @$$.
