Traveling out of NYC – futility and madness!

airport-ratchetness

Traveling out of NYC for business or vacation is always an adventure. Sometimes an adventure in futility! Now, I am one of those easygoing travelers. Nothing bothers me too much whether traveling by air, rail, or car. We all know that things do happen to affect our travel schedules and best laid plans. Bad weather is inevitable. Flight delays will ruin your morning. Traffic jams will cause road rage. Ever want to tear the steering wheel out of your car and beat someone senseless with it? Even I get to my boiling point at times. I just have to keep reminding myself that it’s all about getting to my destination, and that the trip itself is a necessary evil, or impediment to getting there depending on your point of view. I am penning this post on my flight right now which actually took off right on time. A miracle! Continue reading Traveling out of NYC – futility and madness!

Time to play “Hide the Weiner” for NYC Mayor!

I don’t normally post about politics as I constantly find the whole political process a mixed bag of infuriating mumbo jumbo along with a sack full of power hungry liars tossing mud at each other as if they are on a bad Bravo reality tv show. You can easily switch out the annoying do-nothing talentless housewives of “insert city here” with the candidates running for Mayor and get the same shrill characters screaming and slap fighting each other.  It’s a sad state of political affairs here in New York state being that arrests are seemingly coming every week lately over who embezzled what and stole from whom. Now on the horizon rising like a Phoenix out of the ashes comes disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner possibly ready to announce a run for NYC Mayor. Maybe “rising” is not a stong enough term to describe this vigilant sexter, but more like “ejaculating” would be sufficiently appropriate!

Don’t wig out on me man!

What is up with all the dudes I am seeing in NYC lately wearing wigs on their heads? I mean really guys you are fooling nobody. Some of them look like you should have a chin strap attached to it. Others look like a dead animal is perched atop your noggins. Then there are those that just make no sense such as the older guys with grey hair peeking out under a dark brown/black hair piece and they look like hair helmets. Are men in this city so vain and insecure that they feel the need to modify what nature has given them in their DNA? We all know that most times male pattern baldness is caused by genetics and there is no real way to change that unless you go for the expensive hair follicle replacement procedures you see in all those infomercials. Men just seem to have such an inferiority complex when it comes to the hair thing. Those commercials do crack me up. Continue reading Don’t wig out on me man!

As I travel back and forth to work each day it never ceases to amaze me the things I see on the NYC subway. In just these past few days back at work after the Easter weekend I have viewed Subway Douchebaggery at it’s finest!

Here’s a quick rundown of some things that people have done or keep doing that boils my blood –

Stepping on my just shined shoes. Really? At least say “excuse me” and don’t pretend like you didn’t do it!

Eating food that smells like dirty ass in the train. Of all the spots in NYC that you could plop down to eat your meal you choose the dirty subway and a crowded rush hour car to do it? Yuck. Continue reading Why Make The Rat Race Worse Than It Is?
