I can't imagine why fellow New Yorkers would be upset about this? Joba's dead right. Is it because we don't like hearing the truth? The truth is, most NYC'ers are rude as hell. There, I said it.
"The biggest thing that I've noticed driving here and there is if you let somebody in, they open the window and say 'thank you,' " Chamberlain said about getting behind the wheel in Nebraska.A few weeks ago, I changed lanes on the Hutch due to a merge. Rather than letting me in, when there was more than ample room, the guy behind me gunned his engine, ran up on the shoulder (there really isn't one on the Hutch, if you aren't aware) and pushed me back into the middle lane before I could move back myself, causing damage to both cars. Ricky Bobby had nothing on this #$%^&(#. Thankfully, no one was hurt. This was the same guy that 10 minutes earlier I witnessed running the righthand lane shoulder to merge onto the Hutch. Wish I had an on-board video camera like the cops because this guy should have his license revoked. Want his license plate #?
"In New York, they might hit you. Yeah, it's a joke."
It's not the drivers, it's the rude attitudes that foster the "my time/space/stuff is more important than yours" mentality. Can't stand it.
