Non-Americans: What Did An American Tourist Do In Your Country That Made You Do A Serious Double-Take?

As an American who loves to travel, I'm sure I've committed my fair share of faux pas over the years. I'm usually informed by my family and friends who live overseas that they can often "hear Americans coming" whenever they're out in public, which is basically just code for us being loud as hell.

So, I want to know: What's the worst (or weirdest) thing you've ever seen an American tourist doing in your home country?

Maybe it was a relatively innocent mistake, like insisting they get an iced coffee or cold brew at a cafe in Italy. Or even worse, ordering a cappuccino after 11 a.m.

You may have witnessed some very ignorant tourists who get frustrated when people around them don't speak English or don't accept US currency.

Maybe you were in a museum or historical site and saw a few Americans touch the art or climb over ropes to get a photo of a preserved artifact.

Or maybe you live in the southern hemisphere but witnessed some Americans who only packed their winter wear for a December trip, completely unaware that it was the middle of summer for the other half of the world.
