I wish they were not so aggressive but if you had to sell junk in order to eat your next meal, you may be agressive to. Didn't mean to start a big argument on here, just wanted to point out that these people are in need.
If I had to sell junk I think I'd be the person smiling at the tourists and wecoming them to my island from a comfortable distance, perhaps from a chair where they wouldn't feel threatened and alsking how they were enjoying their vacation. If all those around me were driving off my clients by their aggressive actions, I think I'd find another spot away from the hoards. Betcha, I'd sell a lot more junk than the folks invading peoples space and grabbing them to pull them into my shop. Perhaps I'm wrong and tourists spend more from the high pressure tactics to just appease them with a few dollars to get away. I won't be one of those paying and rewarding rude and aggressive behavior. Being needy does not excuse bad behavior.
By the way, being wealthy doesn't excuse bad behavior either. We get our share of those at the other end of the scale all too often on the news as well.
