Didn't You Know That I'm A Mindreader? I Sure Didn't

Tonight, on my way home from work, a woman asked me for directions. She asked me, "Excuse me sir, can you tell me where midtown is?" I was kind of in a mood, and it took a lot of self-restraint to hold back the urge to roll my eyes. I just replied "This is midtown." Instead of a look of embarrassment, I got a withering look from this lady, who said "No. Where's 42ND STREET?!?!"

Whoa, be-yotch, if you wanted 42nd street, why didn't you fucking say 42nd street? I think I tried to give her some 'tude and the evil eye, but it probably came off more like a "I have something in my eye and do I know you from somewhere?" look.

I would have just said, "I spekka no tha English!"

Haha. Monsieur Sarcasm, I think you and I would get along like a house on fire.

So did you tell her where 42nd street was?

Grudgingly I told her, "go up there and turn left for 4 blocks."

Are you even capable of 'tude?
