walking in Manhattan, I was evil this week.

So many people walking with their heads deep in the phone that they must be seeing jina.
They keep walking without looking, figuring (I guess) that it's everyone elses duty to avoid them.

Not me.

I frequently "bump" into phone divers.

that's my evil me story, and I'm stickin' to it.

I do that sometimes, too, although more frequently with people walking in the other direction who are taking up more than their half of the lane/sidewalk.



It is what it is.

no, there's plenty of room for everyone to pee in the subway.

I've found that to be pretty much the same lot.
More annoying now with all the restaurants out the street and other construction going on.

I'm about to lose my mind with the numbers of walkers looking down and not up while crossing the street. I've told my kids if I catch them doing that, they'll lose their phone.

Same mentality as some non-maskers I've accosted: if you're wearing one (watching out for me), then I don't need to.

I saw someone doing something even dumber. This was in the North Williamsburg area, on Kent Ave near the ferry landing, which is a fairly busy stretch, lots of pedestrians and quite a few cars. Young woman rode past on her bike, no hands, no helmet, looking at her iPhone. I wonder if she is still alive and ambulatory.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals
