Dear st00pid tourists:

Please do not stop dead in the middle of a crowded sidewalk. Do not do it to look around, take a picture, tie your shoes, send a text message, call your mother, or any other shred of a reason that may hover near your awestruck small-town brain. Especially do not do this on 42nd street in Times Square on a sunny holiday-weekend afternoon. Step to the edge where you won't block traffic and I won't have to run into your suburban SUV-sculpted ass.

Also, do not stop in doorways, at the entrance to or exit from elevators or escalators, or anywhere else that is a pinch point for traffic. Hint: pinch point does not mean ass or nipple.

Yeesh. I thought the Mirage was bad for putting me on tourist tilt.

Could you send that note to the looky-loos at the Farmer's Market too please? Thank you!

I avoid 42nd Street/Times Square at all costs. I work near Bloomingdales on Lexington Ave and the sidewalks especially in the evening are crawling with tourists who get in my way of heading to the N/R/W subway. I'm on mega tilt usually before I even go underground.

This comment applies equally to folks getting off of airplanes...

Dear Idiot,

When you step off the plane onto the Jetway the hundred people behind you do not cease to exist. Please step aside before straightening your briefcase, luggage, baby stroller, husband, parent or whatever. Also - when you step through the door into the terminal please step away from the door - out into the wide part of the terminal - before beginning to scan for your loved ones, Starbucks or whatever.

Steve
