the one that started tellin me where to go said i needed to go back where i had come from and take a left on broadway. i repeated back just to be sure, head back where i had come from, make a left turn to the next block, "right?" i said. i don't think this guy had been questioned much in his life. he shortly said yeah that i needed to make a left and get to the next block. he finished with, "it's on 33rd." well...i had been walking on 33rd! so of course i pointed this out, "isn't this 33rd we're on?"
that was it for him. he was done. "it's in the next block buddy!"
i just called him out on his error. that's all. :) so, that's how i got my first new york "buddy" comment.
