Advantage always comes with disadvantage and there are two sides to every coin.
You need their money but at the same time, you hate to deal with these people when an overwhelming number of them do not know how to behave properly, disturb your daily life and frighten you. It is a painful experience and dilemma that people in most popular tourist cities have to face everyday.
