Outsiders welcome?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I visited the IOM for the first time this week with my family instead of taking our usual break in Wales or the Lake District. Are tourists welcome? I was with my family in Douglas the other afternoon when we stopped to examine a cafe menu in the window. A woman flew into a rant because she had to walk around us, swearing about tourists etc.. On the same day a member of pub staff served every local who walked upto the bar while we waited to order a meal. In the end we left, only to see the locals laughing at our expense. Finally, as we drove back to our accommodation, a car tailgated us aggressively within inches for about half a mile, even though we were keeping to what we assumed to be a good urban speed. Moments later another car pulled out in front of us, causing us to break. What is all this about? We wanted a nice break, like we usually have, but this experience was a first and seemed totally bizarre.
