people who claim New Yorkers are rude
This just gets my goat.
We've got HORDES of tourists pouring into the city, forcing the continued existence of that wasteful wonderland Times Square, taking up all the space on the sidewalks, and managing to be directly in the path of where I (and every other resident of the city too) need to go, taking an inordinate amount of time to make a goddamned decision, and when I politely say "excuse me" so that I can get by, I hear "God. New Yorkers are like, so RUDE."
No, honey, really, it's not New Yorkers who are rude. It's the rest of the world.
