New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Greenpoint Scrap Metal
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
This post goes out to my new friend Dan* at Greenpoint Scrap Metal for taking the time to ask his boss if yours truly could have a tee shirt from this establishment. Here’s a snippet of my conversation with him for your edification:
Hi, I met a guy wearing a shirt advertising your establishment on Manhattan Avenue earlier this week. I was wondering if I could buy one?
Dan: I am the “assistant to the assistant”, I’ll have to ask my boss.
Me: You’re a very smart man. It’s always best to be the second in charge. That way you can kick that shit uphill.
It depends on which way the wind is blowing.
I like the way you think!
And with that Dan motioned for his boss to come over, they conversed; and, well, the rest is herstory!
Thanks Dan. You’re the man!
*Who was kind enough to tell me— in detail— what he would like to see my person wearing (his boss concurred). I will not go into details but suffice it to say it was not corporate casual. Sorry Dan, you’ll just have to be content with the knowledge that I’ll be sleeping with Greenpoint Scrap Metal starting tonight!
