Riding to work in midtown this am, I came within .00005 seconds of a cab door being opened by a ****heel, wussy out-of-town businessdork so goo-goo eyed and stunned to actually be in NYC, he never looked. And yes I was checking roof lights (tip). Cabbie had it off.
After an overwhelming urge (suppressed) to throw a haymaker, and then a rush of happiness to be alive, I said to myself, let's get positive on this. So this thread:
All you longtime messengers and commuters, what are the 5 most important things you do to keep from getting killed, losing teeth, etc. in NYC traffic?
And everyone from everywhere else, go ahead and post your inevitable "you deserve what you get for living in NY" comments if you must. Just try to make them funny if you can.
