Bonus Tip: How to Anger Your Fellow Tourists!
Cut in line! Yes, that's right - if you're looking to anger, infuriate, aggravate, provoke and enrage your otherwise civilized fellow tourist, just stand to the inside of the line waiting to get into the Basilica as you pose for a photo with St Peter's behind you. Then just keep inching towards the line and act as if you'd been there the whole time. Line cutting is the perfect behavior for visiting the capitol of the largest Christian organization in the world! Oh, and to absolve yourself from any misplaced guilt you may have about not waiting your turn at the back of the line, pretend you don't understand any of the muttered complaints uttered in every language known to man by the people you just gypped. Just act like you only understand Klingon, smile banally, and go on with your line-cutting ways.
Have you ever witnessed inappropriate behavior like this?
*In case you aren't familiar with my humor (you should see what I wrote about Italy's Public Transportation System!), this is a very tongue-in-cheek approach to describe our visit to the Vatican.
