Oh. My. Goodness. Selfie sticks are flailing about at every tourist spot across Europe and one could get a whack in the head if one isn’t careful (I met a man who wasn’t careful on our cruise. He also wasn’t happy. At least he still has his eyes).
Here are some pics I took WITHOUT A SELFIE STICK of the Selfie Stick Users for your eye-rolling pleasure…

I don’t know who’s photobombing whom here! A selfie stick couple in Cannes.
Train a child in the way she should go….
The Acropolis is crawling with tourists and their bumping selfie sticks.
