There seems to be a general theme in New York City. After living in the City for a year and a half I believe that the general theme of the city is that a few minutes can actually make a difference in the grand scheme of things.
I was trying to get on a subway to go home this evening and in the City tradition of ‘Sardines in a can’ people were cramming into the subway car, just as the conductor made the announcement that there was a train directly behind the one i was on. However, people kept cramming in, even though there was a train minutes away.
My message to the people of New York: Slow down, take the next train, pad in some extra time to walk to work – a little slower. SLOW DOWN – enjoy life!
You’ll thank me later!
