Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint Pay Phone du Jour: Manhattan Avenue
Do you want to know what I really hate? People talking on cell phones in restaurants. All I want to do is dine in peace —not listen to some self-important person making social arrangements or bitching about personal matters only of interest to him (or her). Unless of course it involves v.d. test results, pregnancy test results, getting thrown in or bailed out of jail.* In which case chat on narcissists, my dining experience is augmented by listening to you bitch about your yeast infection.
Needless to say I was delighted that this person sought to take his (or her) conversation outside: to this pay phone in front of New Kim Loon Restaurant on Manhattan Avenue.
Wouldn’t you like to take a nice big whiff of this receiver? Yummy.
*I have heard all the previous at one time or another. I’m not kidding.
