Funny thing: Being a New Yorker means you are the greatest street crosser in the world. Known fact. Just check the next time your here.
30 people will be waiting for the light to turn, heavy traffic and cars flying by. Horns honking, wild west situation. Still, the next New Yorker to arrive will force his or her way past all the rest and into traffic. And for some reason, find themselves completely shocked when traffic is too bad for them to cross. Albeit too embarrassed to turn back, the person will stay there until the light turn.
However, at that point, the people that was waiting at the light already started walking, and the greatest “crosser” in history is yet again stuck in the midst of a mass movement, slowly moving forward.
The hare might be faster, but the turtle lives longer.
