(Number one dirtiest, loudest and rudest city, that is, according to Travel and Leisure.)
No fucking shit
Dirtiest and loudest I’ll totally believe. Rudest? Hell, no. We just don’t like idiots who block sidewalk traffic and come here to complain about the dirt and noise. NYCers are certainly impolite, in that they don’t do meaningless pleasantries much… but not because they’re rude. We just don’t like bullshit.
Utterly superficial politesse is obnoxious. Because it means shit.
rant rant rant…
And I always wonder what segment of NYCers they base this sort of thing on, ‘cause it suuuure doesn’t reflect the spectrum of the city’s residents.
The lack of stupid small talk/pleasantries is the best PART of nyc. Every time I go to the West Coast I just want to punch everyone because why are you talking to me when you obviously DON’T ACTUALLY WANT TO BE TALKING TO ME?
But, yeah…dirtiest. That’s pretty much accurate. And loudest. I can hear an ambulance, 2 dogs barking, 3 people talking, and at least 2 people having sex right now and I am inside my apartment with the windows closed.
