I feel so much more chill tonight but have to respond to my whiny creation. >>820
>What is really inconvenient, is that you have to always have your ID, since everyone staying in Moscow (and other regions where FIFA Cup held) for more than three days must register in local police.
This sounds so terrible. Imagine being hassled by the police because you forgot your ID and couldn't prove you were a local on the spot.
What would happen if you didn't have your ID? A few hours of your day stolen from you? >>825
>I get incredibly self-concious seeing them as I want to make a good impression on the guests in my home.
Ah, I feel similar but just about how filthy my city is. I feel like tourists get this idea that they're going to see beautiful landscapes and nature, and they totally can see those things, but they arrive here and see garbage all over the ground and homeless drunks sleeping on benches mixed with fat locals wearing le slutty bunda leggings that they really just shouldn't wear. I wish we were clean and dignified but still unwelcoming as we are now, if that makes sense.
I don't like to make that kind of impression on foreigners. Otherwise I'm pretty much the local untermenschen you describe except I don't know wtf a bookie is.
>I get the feeling that the graffiti artists who write such slogans are a far greater irritant than the tourists. At least tourists have money and eventually fuck off.
It was mostly bait. I don't know anything about refugees. I don't like that the "eventually fuck off" period is just when it isn't sunny.
Btw, I really like how my interactions with Japanese tourists have gone. One old man asked me a question and I didn't understand him, he apologized for his poor English and it was almost as if he was about to start crying. His eyes were so full of shame and I tried to comfort him but he shook his head and walked away staring at his feet as he walked. He didn't trouble me at all yet was acting so hard on himself. >>871
The city is so filthy anyway. I'd rather Alaska was Belarus tier if it meant I didn't have to see these people.
I wonder if the tourists = economic benefit argument is what makes them feel so comfortable, like they're bestowing us with wealth and having it trickle down and we should be kissing their feet for their generosity.
They should be investing their boomer bux on their children or grandchildren anyway, not on vacations. >>877
>They must buy something ?
No I mean, I decided to not buy a drink because there were 5 of them just like hovering right past the entrance and making it so no one could enter.
I don't know if they bought anything or not.
It was better to go elsewhere because in that moment I felt unable to react reasonably. I overreacted but at the same time they ought to have some awareness of what is going on around them and understand that walkways aren't for standing in one spot doing nothing.
