    Just sort of vaguely crashing through each other on your way to the other end of the bar is pretty typical

    But it also involves a LOT of apologizing

    To be honest, outside of Penn Station/Grand Central if you have to make a transfer, most people live and work in places the tourists aren't constantly going.

    Even some of the huge tourist spots like the museums and central park are just so goddamned massive that you don't feel like you are wading through seas of unwashed outsiders.

    Avoid the midtown shit-belt of Times Square / Port Authority / Madison Square Garden / Macy's / Radio City / Rockefeller Center (low 30s to high 50s) and you will have no issues whatsoever.

    Yeah, but the 2000s was when we actually started hearing/paying attention to it.

    I feel like you're just making this up

    I have been staying up far too late watching The Killing. I watched the first episode months ago, thought it was all right, but didn't go back for a long time. A couple days ago I went back and have been binging on it ever since.

    But, like most crime dramas that focus on one case for their entire series, not just a season, the constant bait and switch with the audience is getting ridiculous.

    I think they are adorable.

    When I was working at a convenience store in Bumfuck, Nowhere a whole bus of them showed up. The full tourist thing, like they just got dropped off in Times Square. Snapping pictures, posing with people, etc.

    It was pretty fun. Good people, good people.

    I see liking your own Facebook posts as redundant. Like, someone posted a picture of their cats, talking about how much the liked the photo, and then they are the only "Like" on the photo.

    I mean, that's like triple redundancy there. You don't post photos you don't like to Facebook. So obviously you like the photo, but then you also announced that you like the photo, and then you clicked "Like" on the photo.

    It's ridiculous.

    At the British Museum I saw a Chinese tourist throw her jacket onto an ancient Egyptian statue once like it was a couch, be told off by a security guard and then later the same girl tried to walk up and touch the Elgin marbles. I think it was more that girl was an idiot that anything to do with her nationality though.

    When my wife worked the night shift she'd come home (to Quincy at the time) on the subway at the same time as Vietnamese and Chinese cleaning ladies with huge bags of cans to recycle. The annoying tonal languages after a 12+ hour shift and being exhausted coming home at 8am in the morning made her worried she was going to become anti-Asian racist.
