    yet they still yell profanity at me in situations where cops in any other city would politely say "excuse me ma'am can you please..."
    Speaking as a Southerner with many visits to NYC over the last 20 years or so, that applies to many, many New Yorkers beyond those in NYPD uniform.  **laugh**

    The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

      True enough

    •  This is true, & it doesn't bother me when (0+ / 0-)

      the people doing it aren't in a position of power over me.  I expect better from the police than "get the fuck out of my way" instead of "can you please step aside".  I don't expect the same courtesy from cab drivers.

      I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
