Condé Nast Traveler recently tallied the results of an annual Readers’ Choice Survey, which asked their audience to rate cities on a number of aspects. Two of the sections asked readers to name the “friendliest” and “unfriendliest” cities in the world.
The survey revealed that Wilmington, Delaware, coming in at number eight, and Atlantic City, New Jersey, coming in at number five, are considered some of the most inhospitable cities.
I have a distinct sense of “personal space” that is frequently violated while in check out lines. Many stores have small counters. Don’t try and jam all your stuff on the counter before my transaction is concluded. Don’t crawl up my ass till I can feel you breathing down my neck and DON’T try and watch while I put in the pin number for my debit card. WTF people, that’s down right rude. I wish I had a built in personal space violation alarm that would automatically go off when people are just TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT!
