so this morning as i was leaving my apartment, i stepped out into the hallway and locked my door. at the same time, my neighbor’s nurse was leaving and was waiting for the elevator. when the elevator appeared she stood and then looked at me as if she was thinking, “bitch, i’m not touching that door knob, you’re gonna open it for me!” for the sake of not missing my chance to get on the elevator, i opened the door and she proceeded to get in it before me and she said, “thank you!” the next 20 seconds in the elevator consisted of me staring straight ahead and wondering why the hell she couldn’t open the damn door. we then exited the elevator and i held the next 3 doors open as she whizzed by me to the subway station… germaphobe? or just an annoying biotch? or am i overreacting? no - i’m not.
30 minutes later i am walk through rock center en route to work. a sea of winter hat wearing, tight jean wearing, fedora hat wearing, ironic glasses wearing, gwyneth paltrow loving hipsters are congregated at the today show to watch or be seen watching coldplay. if you’re wondering where all the occupy wall street people are - they’re up at the today show today.. because they can! occupy rock center
