I see most people in NPs as interlopers, not all, but dang near to the person,
monkeys aren't as good a metaphor as goats-
Let me explain...
A goat is a goat-never will you expect the goat to learn to wait its turn, or to be polite, or to care in the least what happens to you.
You can see it as they're assaulting small children, old people, and the just dumb...
They just don't care, not mad, not anything, just don't care...if you make friends with them somehow, well then you may come out of any interaction without huffing and puffing, but more than likely, if you go into the field with my goats, you are gonna get the worse end of it.
Many visitors to tourist destinations act like my goats-
when I have open studio, I like to have a goat tied out front, keeps the human goats from looking so well, goatlike to me
