But do you send it out for spot cleaning while otherwise occupied?

I never dirty my napkin. I don't actually eat food at restaurants; I find chewing is rude and inconsiderate. I simply take pictures of it, then I go home, upload them to my computer and imagine what the taste experience would have been like. It's the only way I can be sure no one is offended.

Sad to see you gave up on Polaroids.

^^ Probably for the best, what with the simple act of wiping your mouth rife with social landmines.

napkins are for losers. real men wipe their mouths on their sleeves.
eta: this is another "honest living" joke.

Alphas wipe their mouths on other people's sleeves.

I wipe mine with my massive schlong. That's in no way gay, it just shows how alpha I am. Really.

It's very demeaning to speak of your partner simply by referencing his genitalia, massive or not.

i was waiting in that cab line outside of penn station last week. normally, i just walk home but had a large suitcase with me so decided to wait. it was busy so there were probably 50-100 people in line and the person who normally whistles for and directs the cabs wasn't around. everything was pretty civilized as most in line knew the routine, or so i thought. after waiting about 10-15 mins someone jumps out of the back of the line to grab a cab, essentially cutting a hundred people, some of whom have probably been waiting 30 mins. i wasn't close enough to say anything. then, it happened again about 5 mins later some distance away and at this point i'm getting pissed. decided if it happens again i'll start policing the line even if i look like an idiot. it didn't happen again before i left.

i know, anti-climactic story but i'm curious if anyone would have made a scene.

The line on 7th? Please to explain the sense in waiting in that line when you can walk 1 block north to 7th and 34th and hail a cab. For the life of me I can never figure that line out.

yeah isn't that one of the better points about NYC, you can get a cab almost anywhere anytime?


But to your point, actually rarely but yes, I've been 'that guy' and pointed out loudly to someone "hey the back of the line's over there". It's one of those social injustices that happens because people let it.

in my experience, heading to 34th or really any direction from penn is the smart thing to do if its not 5 or 6 pm. it can be hard to get a cab in that part of town in the late afternoon.

Yeah, I'm always happy to call someone out when they've cut a line.

Half the fun of living in NYC is jacking a cab from someone. The chat and cut on the other hand...
