Locals here could absolutely be more friendly-yipes!

May 06, 2017 12:24PM

I saved for a while to come down here for just a few days. The ocean and the beach are EXACTLY like the pictures I saw-just gorgeous. But I've been here for 48 hours now and have been lectured by a local three times already. Really bossy and in my face! "Hey! they told you to wait here! You need to listen!" What? Dude, I'm not some ultra-rich american jerk who looks at locals like attractions. And I didn't scrimp and save to come down here and be treated like a recalcitrant child! I live in a tourist town myself (a ski town) so I know about tourists' sometimes ridiculous requests. Those tourist allow me to live my dream life in the mountains! I know that! Not a really pleasing thought, true. But reality baby!

The town of Charlotte Amalie was really charming, in a 99th and Kinsman, East Cleveland kind of way. There are just so many places to get your cash checked, or receive hard guy stares from men, woman, and children! And if liquor stores where you want to buy lottery tickets, are your thing? Then enjoy the many fine amenities this place has! happy I have been looking forward to this trip for SO LONG. I'm staying on the beach for the rest of my time here and then getting my ass back to Summit County, Colorado. Peace the f*&&^% OUT Virgin Islands!

The local locals, as in not the ones coming in from the continental US and operating a business but the true natives of the island are super-rude in St. Thomas. In St. John's they are very nice. Went to a laundromat in Cruz Bay and the ladies there were friendly and helpful.
