The Stynger - Day 1

Technically this is the second one. That was before the pre-re imaging (there is so much wrong with that).

So theres this site called Overheard in New York. It's part of a group of websites that allow people to post the most random conversations/situations that can be overheard or eves-dropped. As you can tell this site is all about the Big Apple. It is much like the TBS commercials about things being "funny".

This one caught my eye a few days ago and summed up how I felt every time I walked out of my apartment and into the street filled with masses.

... And Patronize Our Vendors

A tourist mom with three teens in tow halts in the middle of the block, causing two suits and several other people to crash into them.

Suit #1: For the love of God, move, you idiots! There are people walking behind you!
Tourist mom: You don't have to be so rude!
Suit #2: He's rude? You clearly see this is a busy sidewalk, and yet you stop dead in the middle and block all traffic!
Tourist mom: He didn't have to say it so rude -- we are not from around here!
Suit #1: And does that somehow excuse your being idiots and stopping in the middle of a busy street?
Tourist mom: At least we are not so rude in Tennessee!
Suit #2: That explains the idiocy, but it still isn't an excuse.
Tourist mom: That was unnecessary!
Suit #1: Perhaps, but it's true.
Suit #2: Here, maybe this is more polite: Welcome to New York. Slow walking idiots prone to stopping for no reason stay to the fucking right of busy sidewalks, and don't get in the way of the non-mentally impaired locals. Now fuck off.
