This young man from out west was visiting New York on his vacation. He was beginning to learn that some of the New Yorkers were a bit brusque.
One day, as he was walking down one of the avenues. He stopped a man walking toward him and said, “Excuse me sir, but I’m from out of town and visiting New York for the first time. I am a bit lost and wondered if you would be kind enough to direct me to the Empire State Building. Or should I just go #@^% myself?”
