stop confusing the tourists!

Tourists are annoying. They think that Times Square is like, the awesomest thing in the universe. They stare at the lights for hours, take thousands of photos (that will all turn out poorly), and block my speedy stride to work.

Usually, by the time I cross Broadway, I will have zigzagged past at least three midwestern families, all of whom seemed throughly confused about which direction they are walking. “Is this North?” “How do we get to the subway?” “Where is Hard Rock Cafe?”

As confused as these big-lights blinded folk are, we shouldn’t add to their confusion. That’s why I am really peeved at whoever covered up the 7 on this sign:


I hope you know that you have delayed my walk to work for a good three minutes with your selfish actions.

    Tourists may be annoying, but boy do they ever contribute to Manhattan economy. I personally don’t see the attract of hanging around Times Square but do welcome the visitors who come to be part of Manhattan.

    1. tourists will contribute to the manhattan economy whether you’re nice to them or not.

    2. Why did it take three extra minutes? Were you actually giving people directions?

    i must not be like a tourist at all then. when i was there in june, all i wanted to do (in times square) was to hop by to see all the light pollution it makes at night.
