The List, Part 6

Tourists who are so intent on getting pictures of the FDNY at work that they get in the way of the firefighters and encourage their entire families to join them.

AKA morons.

Hey, those morons pay your salary! Not literally, of course, or even figuratively, but still.

Tourists? Nah. We could kill 20 or 30 million a year and it wouldn't affect my business much.

You mean firefighters have jobs to do??! They aren't, like, amusement park employees dressed in costume like at Disneyland?

N__B said...

You've never been here, have you? They think the entire goddamned city is an amusement park.

I was there recently and saw children getting their picture taken with Elmo in front of an M&M store.

M&M World in Times Square? That's a good example of why natives avoid XSQ. Or did you mean M&M Pest Control on Orchard Street?

Rusty Shackleford said...

I was passing by the M&M Store on the way to Sam Ash and Rudy's. I SWEAR

N__B said...

Why go to Rudy's when you've got the Film Center steps away? You got a thing for hipsters and toothless old men?

Rusty Shackleford said...

Do they have guitars to ogle at the Film Center?

Also, yes.

The last time I was there was during a spell in which the 1 line was being worked on, and I had to get off at 42nd rather than up at Columbus Circle.

**shudder**
