1. Look up when you’re walking!
There are only like A TRILLION people and things you can run into.
2. Don’t ask a New Yorker if they “have a minute for…” anything before or after work.
I’m late and then I’m tired.
5. Cover your stinking mouth!
This applies to coughing, sneezing, yawning, burping, and all other above the neck functions.
6. Use the trash cans, they’re literally on every corner.
Guess who’s not cleaning up after you? Me.
7. Don’t forget your earphones and glasses if you don’t want strangers to bother you on the train.
This trick is professionally called “sensory masking.”
8. Show up to the movie theater an hour early if you want to sit with the people you came with.
9. Everyone at Whole Foods needs to chill out.
There’s enough organic kale for everyone.
10. Be nice to anyone you know with a car so that you can go to IKEA.
11. Have your Metro Card ready before you reach the turnstile.
Ain’t nobody got time for your fumbling around.
12. Stay away from horse and buggy rides.
They’re smelly, they’re slow, and the horses will thank you.
13. Don’t be one of those people in line for the Starbucks bathroom.
You’re better off holding it.
16. Be aware of people’s personal space.
This applies for bars, subways, stores, etc. That is… unless you like getting beat up.
17. If you have business to take care of at the post office… clear your schedule for the day.
18. No, no one is making conversation with you on the street.
They’re hooked up to one of these monstrosities.
19. This is not how you pick people up anymore.
20. Squirrels rule the parks, you are just a visitor and you best keep outta their way.
21. Only the bold get cabs on the weekend.
The more creative you get, the better.
