Idiot Tourists Seen Sticking Their Hands In The Hot Springs At Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone Hot Springs

Whenever you visit a National Park, you already know you’re going to be in a mixed bag with all sorts of people…

And that even includes those who have an IQ next to zero.

The story of the “moron tourist” (or “touron,” if you will) is a tale as old as time.

You know, the over eager tourists who think it’s a good idea to get within a few feet or inches of the wildlife, and proceed to nearly get sent to the afterlife all because they were desperate for that one Kodak moment.

Or, even better, the tourists who think it’s an even better idea to stick their hand into a hot spring that can get up to 122 degrees.

With that being said, we saw one of those situations play out recently at Yellowstone National Park.

Tourist Meeka Vigue took a video of kids (with their parents with them, I must add) along with other tourists sticking their hands on a hot spring, and pulling them back as if they’d just touched the stove while it was turned on.

Vigue wrote in the caption:

“Sometimes I really really hate people. Everything in my being was about to set off watching these kids (with parents with them) be so d*mn disrespectful.”

What did they expect? A pleasantly surprising lukewarm temperature?

They aren’t called “hot springs” for nothing.

Not to mention, if they happened to fall in they’d be gone forever.

Just see for yourself:
