A few words on subway etiquette
Let’s talk for a second about manners, New York City, because I for one am at a loss. No, this isn’t about “New Yorkers being rude,” because frankly, that’s a crock of lies sold to us by ’80s cop shows and suburban parents being to afraid to let their kids fly the coop (ahem). No, New Yorkers are some of the nicest people around. Blunt and frank, but hey,...
I'm a verbose asshole.
I found this on my computer while cleaning out files. It’s okay if you laugh at me; I lol’d ‘til I got a tummy ache. PS: This was from November, 2011. Ugh.

80s Feminism and Carl Winslow
V: Bitch, do your job [re: Lady Cop responding to J. McClane's radio distress]
J: This is the 80s! It's subtle commentary on women in the workforce. Basically, female cops are untrusting of emergencies and cannot do their jobs.
