This is a question Inflated Self-Importance

Amorous Badger asks: Tell us tales of people who have a high opinion of themselves. Jumped-up officials, the mad old bloke who runs the Neighbourhood Watch like it's a military operation, Colonel Blimps, pompous bastards and people stuck up their own arse.

I have inflated self-importance
But especially when it comes to dealing with tourists in London. I glare at them when they pause on the pavement to take photographs of each other, and curse them for walking side by side so I have to break pace to get past them when I'm jogging along embankment like a big sweaty teacake.

Last week I was on the tube and a little group of French girls were glancing at me and giggling. I thought, well they can't be blamed for fancying me. With my black glasses, padded jacket and oversized headphones they probably think I'm a Hoxton new media man from 1997 off to pitch his web currency idea. But they didn't fancy me, they were laughing because I was listening full volume to 'Crockett's Theme' by Jan Hammer and the headphones had come out.

Japanese tourists take photos of...
...absolutely anything they can get their mates to stand in front of and make the peace sign.
I think they're creating their version of google maps and are plotting where to put everything when they kill us all and take over the world. It's not the peace sign, they're actually sticking their fingers up at whats behind them...

Including the "Bridge over the river Kwai"
Where their ancestors forced thousands to work to their death so they could build a railway. It made me wish that every one of the grinning wankers were forced to visit the local museum which covers that period.
