Regular commuters see this all the time. A group of mostly domestic tourists will hop on a downtown train figuring they all go to Ground Zero, Century 21, etc, get confused, miss their stop, head under the East River, pull out their subway maps and realize they're in Brooklyn. Eyes get wide. Panic sets in. Hopefully then a reassuring NYer will tell them just to go to the other side of the Fulton, Borough Hall, Court St., platform to return to civilization.

Lulz, that panic in their eyes is so real, but unwarranted, it's a bit funny. I always help them out though. Whenever I see people confused, I try to help on the subway or platform.

That is definitely true. I hate drummers regardless where they are in the transit system. If there is no melody then I don't want to hear it in the subway. Some idiot hitting a bunch of spackle buckets isn't getting shit from me.

I think it is amazing how everybody thinks Brooklyn is still the way it was in the 70's and 80's.

I find most Asian and European tourists are pretty familiar with public transportation and can navigate the subway pretty well even with a language barrier and a system as vast as the MTA.

But most domestic tourists who are used to hopping in their car to go down the block are completely lost.

More people should hold their friends/family to that standard.

I expect a lot out of myself and will expect a lot out of my kids. But not so much out of other people. Then again, I'm a criminal defense lawyer, so it's hard for me to be outraged by people who are being annoying on the subway when I deal all day with people who are accused of terrible things (and the cops and prosecutors who abuse their power on a regular basis in trying to put my clients away).

Yes, good game for Pandev, but a win would have been better.

It is ok, you are not in the courtroom and have anonimity, you can be honest now.

Sadly, I wish I was lying, but it's the truth. Also, I think a lot of people on here know who I am IRL, so I don't have that much anonymity. wink.gif

Get out of here. You'd rather be on an NYC subway commute to work than in Albany walking through snow and slush.

It's because they're using Chinese grammar. 口語 = oral English

FYI 口交 = oral sex teacha.gif
