For you people on here who have been to Jamaica dozens of times or live there and know the people better than I. Do Jamaicans really think we are all rich?
I understand that even for those of us who are budget travelers us being able to take time off work and travel is a huge luxury and I iamgine what we spend on vacation could be what they earn in months if not a year but do they really think we are rich?
I dont make a whole lot of money, I save all year and maybe take one vacation if I'm lucky so I'm far from rich but try to be a generous tipper and spend money to support the people.
On my last trip I had 500J left on our last day. The security guards are always friendly and do a good job of keeping people from bothering you if you dont want to be bothered and I'm sure they rarely get tipped even though they work hard just like maids, waiters, etc. Anyhow, I went and told him we were going home, thanked him and told. He asked me how much a laptop cost and I told him a few hundred bucks. He then asked me if I would bring him one for his son next time he came down. I don't even own a laptop myself.
Just wondering what their Jamaicans think of us, do they consider us all rich like I consider a athlete or movie star rich. Maybe a stupid quetion but I was just curious.
