Admittedly, getting help with computers is always tough, and god knowz I need it too.

concubines don't cook, do they? they just fuck and dance.

Get me concubines, I'll live with takeout.

I am a 'rude' pedestrian in midtown -- ie, if yer not in a hurry, go the fuck to Paris if you want to 'boulevard' three abreast.

oh I HATE slowwalkers who take up the whole sidewalk more than ANYTHING. I always pass them in an obviously huffy fashion.

people who stand on narrow sidewalks and hold conversations and then make me walk through them to get by.

elmo argonaut, Thursday, 26 April 2007 17:36 (thirteen years ago) link

I actually do hit people who are in my way while walking. once I was walking in harlem, late to get somewhere and I accidentally hipchecked a little girl walking in the opp. direction and 4 seconds later I heard her mother yelling WHO HIT YOU??!!

I so did not turn around.

my personal bugbear: when you (or anybody else) has to sneeze in public – and onlookers glare as if you've horribly offended them, instead of saying 'god bless you' or 'geshundheit' or whatever.

You know that term, "Kill 'em with kindness"? Y'all should move to The South and discover that it's damn-near a literal expression.

"HAY MORNIN' THERE, BUDDY! HOW YOU GETTING ALONG OKAY?"
"Can I just pay for this coffee, please?"

Pleasant Plains, Thursday, 26 April 2007 20:55 (thirteen years ago) link

when i was in India and someone sneezed I said god bless you and then was terrified I would be stoned. GET YOUR GODS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU TRAVEL.

Yerac, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:00 (thirteen years ago) link

i was in a pizza place, walking out with a pie. there's a woman ahead of me, pushing a stroller. she goes outside before me and then holds the door open for me. i smiled, but i did not say thank you. (when i hold the door for someone i don't expect a thank you.) anyway, she got all mad and was like "You know a THANK YOU for holding the door would have been nice." am i a dick, y/n?

Mr. Que, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:03 (thirteen years ago) link

i just say bless you. why bring god into this?

chicago kevin, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:04 (thirteen years ago) link

remy how many times has a stranger in passing said god bless you to you? ive had once instance in my life when i was visiting chicago & its actually managed to stick in my mind because i was so surprised by it

this might only be because i do the vast majority of my sneezing in private though

deeznuts, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:05 (thirteen years ago) link

someone lit a cigarette in my subway car on the way to work today but I don't think it was so much conscious rudeness as just mentally ill / weird

so noticeable in a closed car tho. ugh.

mcdonalds employees who dont treat me like their superior

deeznuts, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:18 (thirteen years ago) link

I don't think with-holding a "thank you" when a door is held is as much a faux pas as is withholding a "sorry" after squashing someone's toes or something. That's when I'll get huffy and be all "AN 'EXCUSE ME' WOULD BE NICE"

elmo argonaut, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:20 (thirteen years ago) link

haha have you ever actually done that kind of thing?? cuz i dont i have nor do i think its happened to me & i can be a pretty rude jackass

deeznuts, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:22 (thirteen years ago) link

No amount of politeness seems to get one served at Daddy's however.

sexyDancer, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:23 (thirteen years ago) link

Smiling is a perfectly fine response to a door-holding as long as you're sure the person sees it. I hold a lotta doors and get a lotta cold shoulders, but making a kind gesture so you can get verbal acknowledgment is bogus.

BLASTOCYST, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:25 (thirteen years ago) link

someone told me a story once about being on a train and some lady using her stroller to keep the doors open as she almost missed the train.

and the subway announcer just yelled, "you did NOT just use a baby to hold the doors!"

or i read it on overheard in ny..oh memory...where have you gone


ok, off to daddy's

but 1st to navigate GCS, the 4/5, union square ...

"AN 'EXCUSE ME' WOULD BE NICE"

I got that once when the subway lurched and I sort of half sat on someone

I didn't think it was that bad but apparently she felt pretty satted on

I apologized but then had to sit next to her for a few stops ... :/ awkward

dmr, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:27 (thirteen years ago) link

my bro has done some shit a couple times recently -- he was at a cafe where one of my friends works and my bro accidentally poured hot tea all over my friend's hand.

FRIEND: Uh... "SORRY."
BRO: Oh, it's alright.
FRIEND: No, "sorry" is what you're supposed to say!
BRO: ... *walks away*

My bro can be quite a tool sometimes.

elmo argonaut, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:28 (thirteen years ago) link

what's annoying here is that ppl will slow down or stop when you're standing on the corner or even approaching (say, on a run), which totally throws off my game because either (a) I'm just chilling on the corner, checking girls and smoking cigarettes* or (b) i have planned my in-run in such a way that i will pass behind the car by mere inches, in the most efficient street crossing you've ever seen. instead, i get dudes sitting there impatient that i'm not flipping out and thanking them for their irritating, obtrusive courtesy

Also, don't fucking wave me on if you have the right of way, you shitty RI drivers.

elmo argonaut, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:39 (thirteen years ago) link

"KILL EM WITH KINDNESS"

Also see insane motherfucker drivers who try to be "nice" and attempt to wave you to turn left in front of them at intersections.

some dude just drifted into my lane this morning and he ignored my honks in this weird "maybe if i don't acknowledge his presence he'll veer into another car and i can get to work early" manner. after that almost happened, he waved to me politely and mouthed "thank you".

félix pié, Thursday, 26 April 2007 21:54 (thirteen years ago) link

i got yelled at for holding the door open for guy in wheelchair a la david cross in scary movie 2 XD

OTM
this includes assholes in NY who have a green light, see that you've stopped well before crossing the street because hey, DO NOT WALK, and they stop anyway at the green light and wave you across?? drivers stop being so old and senile thx

i drank some of that itoen tea in a plastic bottle when i was in nyc! but it was not rose flavoured. it was just straight up green uh both good and bad and i almost finished it before i could not deal with it anymore.
i like that black oolong can. (i don't like drinking from cans though!)
