They think that they can go anywhere and do what they please. San Diego couple faces 7 years in prison after posting a photo on Instagram of them posing in front of a Thai temple with their britches down. This ain't a couple of teenagers either.

"Yeah -- they represent all Americans"

NSR, I never intended for the thread title to be taken that way. However, so many Americans, who travel abroad, are so unaware and clueless regarding the customs of the country that they're visiting.

JAFO, I get it -- no problem.

We have lots of Americans who are clueless -- period. I live in a place where many people come to vacation. "Summer people" we call them -- they invade the town and make like they own the place. They are just crappy people who happen to be Americans.

On the flip side, we also see many people from other countries here -- some are real a holes. Most are not.

Americans didn't invent dumbassery -- some of us are just keeping it alive and well.

Yeah, a full moon will get you severe punishment in Thailand. Too bad they are not as enthusiastic about punishing people who rent out their kids to pervs!

Amazing immaturity displayed by a couple of nearly-40-year-olds. And I’m sure every country on the planet has shining examples.

Most countries don’t have spacific laws to protect idiots. They do expect a certain amount of respect for their culture and beliefs. Ignore these at your own peril.

The way I was raised international/universal respect was the norm.

The dirty American theme continues to prevail. Our freedoms are ours and not to be presented in all cultures. Their acts are considered illegal in their liberal neighborhood of Hillcrest although never more than a traffic ticket type fine would be applied there unless they did it in front of children or complaining citizens.

I got hissed as in Japan once and I have no idea why. Yes, the britches where up and buckled.

So our administration has saved shoplifting college basketball players. Will it save a stupid gay couple who showed their butts?

Unless it's a capital crime, no foreigner visiting the US is going to get press for bad behavior or minor offenses. If they do make their way into some sort of social media, it's usually branded as Xenophobic.

I think, in Europe at least, that the hordes of Chinese tourists have become much more annoying than the stereotypical "Ugly American" was.
