9. The brazen public urinator
Or maybe you’ve just lost all reason and decide to just take a leak on the street in public view, because who cares? It’s party o’clock in the Big Sleazy! Well, you just got into a pissing contest with the aforementioned NOPD, and you sir, are about to lose.
10. The soon-to-be crime victim
Feel like wandering alone, drunk, down dark alleyways for a mile back to your hotel at 4am? In most places, that would be a bad idea. In New Orleans, that’s the king, CEO, president, four-star general, and head janitor of bad ideas. There’s safety in numbers and well-lit/populated areas, and there’s no shame in calling a cab to get you home.
11. The rube
NOLA is a tourist-friendly city, perhaps one of the most tourist-friendly in the nation. And with tourist dollars also comes the kind of fringe folks who want a piece of the pie. Don’t give it to them. Whether it’s “where you got dem shoes” (they’re on your feets) or other scams, if someone starts to hustle you, you have no obligation to take part in that person’s shenanigans. Just don’t be a jerk about it... politely declining should be sufficient.
