Things I Heart Complaining About

Ok, I know I fell off the face of the earth for a little while. I was very busy doing important things, like feeling guilty about how little work I was doing in comparison to how much work other people made it sound like they were doing. And then going out for drinks instead of doing work (you know, to alleviate the guilt). Wow, I'm probably going to fail out of law school.

Anyway, last night, while I was sitting in exorbitant traffic in a cab on the way to meet my friends at a bar (why they all have to in the same neighborhood and always go out in that neighborhood is beyond me, especially, and probably only, because it is not my neighborhood), I started thinking about all those little annoying things often observed in New York. Some of them include:
  • watching the cab meter add up while sitting at a stand-still in midtown traffic
  • people who try to hail cabs that don't have their lights on
  • people who try to hail the cab that I am clearly already sitting in
  • when people stop short for no reason while walking in the middle of the sidewalk
  • when people stop short in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture
  • tourists who take pictures of stupid things (oooh, a garbage can!)
  • cab drivers who jerk forward and/or slam on their brakes
  • car sickness
  • throwing up in cabs
  • bike riders who get mad when they ride right into an opening cab door (sorry!)
  • lists that make me sound bitter
