New York Minute
I do that, too. The newspaper on top almost always looks bedraggled or missing pages. That's why some of the proprietors come out and rearrange their stock every twenty minutes, so it looks fresh. It may be silly objectively, but in my mind if the presentation even looks dirty or messy, I'm not buying anything there.
The top copy may also be street soot covered.
2) Yup! Just bad karma to get it. And the good news people will never give you the top copy. LOL
I've always done that too. But I've always considered myself a native New Yorker who somehow was born, raised and still resides in Portland. :-)
We are the last of a dying breed. TNG will never have ink stained hands.
i always do that! and not just with newspapers. even items at the supermarket, and stuff...
(6) Ditto! Did that with the Times for years before we started getting home delivery. Now I transfer that habit to milk and cereal cartons at the market (but there, I'm always also looking for the latest sell by date).
7) That's classic. Yup, I still arrive at work each day with smudges on my fingers and face!
