I Don't Just Make Them, I Read Them

Amy Poehler’s 8 Simple Rules for Being a New Yorker

1. Be nice to everyone, especially people wearing hospital bracelets.

2. Don’t ask white girls if they “left their ass at home.”

3. If you have to bring your baby to a movie, make sure he laughs at appropriate times.

4. Don’t eat Cheetos and then sit down at a fancy hotel piano.

5. If you are in Central Park and think you are getting mugged, first check to see if maybe you’re just part of a student film.

6. If you see Oprah at a fancy function, don’t grab her wrist and ask for money. Quietly sneak up behind her and whisper, “You give me that money, Oprah. You hear me?”

7. When walking on a New York street, try not to spit, litter, bleed, or take a crap.

8. If you need to do any of these things, try to do it between two parked cars.

Overheard at Caritas Village

Went to grab some lunch at Caritas Village without a lunch date or anything to read. So what did I do? I eavesdropped.
  1. "no dairy"
  2. "embalming fluid?"
  3. "calls herself the empress"
  4. "he usually tells you everything 13 times"
  5. "I'm a little teapot today!"
  6. "Is that sandwich big enough for you?" (That one was directed at me - I was eating a giant, delicious turkey club. People are friendly there.)
  7. "I dropped an old lady one time"
  8. "you look at Obama he starting to look old already"
