The locals don’t always take kindly to tourists – well, at least the locals who aren’t human. While most travelers report that local people are kind, generous and helpful, some have a little bit of a problem with the wildlife. Travel agent Clark had a funny run-in with a monkey after leaving the doors open in her hotel room.

“Upon check-in, I open the double doors so I could hear the ocean and I [had a] fruit basket in my room. I started a bath…and when I got out of the tub, I thought I heard someone in the living room of my one-bedroom suit,” she said. “When I came out of the bathroom, I realized that someone had taken a bite out of every piece of fruit in my fruit basket. I realized I was safe and sound as long as I closed those double glass doors because I had had a visit from a green monkey.”
