Bernthal-The Way It Oughta Be: American’s Worst Travelers

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO.-I'm not exactly a world traveler but I have visited a few countries outside the U.S. I was surprised when I saw a survey that ranked Americans as the worst travelers.  Our neighbors to the north in Canada didn't seem to care for our visits and Aussies say were not well mannered.

Americans also confessed to pilfering from hotel rooms.  Towels, robes and even the Bible.

Maybe our problem is we take fewer vacation days then most other countries.

Maybe we need an extra week off for practice to work on getting ready fir our big vacation.

I doubt your boss will give you extra time off, so instead if your planning a trip overseas soon, please be on your best behavior.  We have enough problems here; we don't need to damage our reputation even more.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
