Only in NYC.
Yesterday, we were RUDELY awoken by ridiculous honking at the stoplight outside our window starting around 5:30 AM. There's usually a certain degree of honking, but it's somewhat tolerable. But this time, the level of honkage escalated throughout the morning and became basically unbearable and completely maddening by the time I left the apartment. I was ready to start throwing heavy/sharp objects out the window at these disruptive cars that were ruining my morning.
Come to find out - the stoplight had broken! But not one of those polite stoplight breakages where the light starts blinking to inform drivers of its brokenness. Nope, this is a rude Brooklyn stop light that decided to just STAY RED.
Sigh. Only in New York....
