There are rude people everywhere, idiot.
on behalf of all New Yorkers, thank you
there's rude people in every city/town/village...maybe people just disconnect. Maybe it's the pressure of life. Whatever, there's no excuse for it.
Many people in New York are pretty rude. I was born in the area and lived there three different times. They will always say they are not rude, just blunt, but really they're rude. Just enjoy the city for what it offers, but if you want to keep some semblance of courtesy and manners, don't live there. Just don't take the morons to heart.
Lets see - if you are referring to the city, most of Manhattan was flooded and Boehner and his friends have done jack to help them; 9/11, Rudy milked that - so I would be fairly pissed off also!
OK - what is this Southern hospitality you speak so highly of?
You need to do much more research before posting such a generality and trying to pin it on NY . IMO
Don't forget- you are also 'just a kid' to many people,and teens,etc get dismissed,sometimes. Chalk it up to the differences between your deep south and northern metropolises.Visit both cities MANY more times and enjoy yourself! TY for your sincerity.
New York can be fun, but I'd lose my manners too if I lived there too long.
Well you did the right thing,well done.
people in general are rude. NY just seems to have them all in a confined space
