NYC Welcoming Committee

Contrary to popular belief, we’re actually quite an approachable bunch ~ that said, we totally size you up first & decide if we have the head to deal ~ now don’t take that the wrong way, it’s just that there are so many of you, that we have to pick & choose on a daily basis.

For example, when I see a pack of tourists standing on a corner wrestling with an oversized Subway Map I usually point them in the right direction or if I see them about to walk into an Olive Garden, I might be inclined to throw myself on the ground & beg them not to enter & then humbly suggest a nice local Italian Restaurant or where to get a decent Bagel.  However, if you’re wearing a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt & you’re over 16 or say a Christmas sweater with anything 3D, I’m sorry, but I’m just not stopping.

I’m also going to dust  you if you’re standing at the top of the subway stairs or if you abruptly stop in the middle of the sidewalk ~ here’s the thing they don’t tell you in those little glossy tourist books – YA GOTTA PULL OVA!
