This was my first year attending the NY Times travel show. I was so excited to learn about far away lands to discover. I got the wind knocked out of me at the second exhibitor, Mexico. I asked for some information and brochures. I asked if it was safe to travel there for Americans. Well the man speaking to me seethed and said to me, "I'll tell you what I told another woman last year.. You know what happened in that Connecticut school last winter? Well that doesn't happen in Mexico. We hear about much violence in your country as well."
I was appalled. This man was so aggressive. All I could think about was what if I happened to be from Sandy Hook, ct and I was visiting the travel show in NY?? This was a horrible thing to say and all I ask is that ALL vendors be better trained on their approach with people.. What's appropriate or inappropriate and/or what others may take offense too.
Needless to say, I left my brochures and left
