Ugh, people, amiright? Always inviting you on trips, asking you to come out into the world with them, to try new things, see new countries, make new memories. “Hell is other people,” as Jean-Paul Sartre would say, but it’s also other places -- places out of your comfort zone, places where they don’t speak English, or have the things you like, as you like them, just so. Places where you ask, “Don’t you know who I am?” and they genuinely don’t.
How can you avoid the manifold horrors of traveling with others? Well, as a matter of fact, there are a few techniques you can deploy on your next group trip that’ll have everyone wondering why you even came, and which asshole invited you. Some will require expert-grade feats of narcissism and obliviousness. But most are accessible to even run-of-the-mill brats.
