We're Not Rude, So Stop Bothering Us! (A Greeting From New York City)

I'm ashamed to say that I occasionally watch Live with Kelly in the morning (used to be Live with Regis and Kelly - you know what I'm talking about).

I'm not a native New Yorker, but have lived here about twenty years, so I consider myself a New Yorker by default. I'm originally from the Southwest of the U.S., where people are so polite it's almost sickening. I almost dread…

A Journey That Radically Changed More Than One Life - Motorcycle Diaries With Technology
