New Yorkers love to bitch about the petty and mundane. And I love to join them. There are few things more enjoyable than grumbling with a complete stranger about the MTA, bad pizza, rude cab drivers, the Boston Red Sox, but mostly the MTA ... and now, bagels.
There is true fury behind the bitching over the subway fare hike and the inflated cost of bagels. If you want to see steam come out of a New Yorker's ears, just mention the MTA or the wheat shortage.
Things I Love" Thursdays are inspired by "I Love New York" (BNY, February 14, 2007).
