"Just 28?" is the first thing some clever scallywags probably thought. And while, yes, "waking up" and "other people having the gall to exist", plus infinity other things, tick off residents of the five boroughs, we consider these the most egregious, most annoying, most "are you $#*@!@$ serious right now with this?" people, places, and things that truly piss us off.
1. Paying rent
We understand that this has to happen, but we still get pissed. The average rent in New York City is about $3,000. The median price for buying a house in America is $188,000. Do a little math and that means two things:
1. The typical yearly rent in New York City is about the same as a 20% down payment on the average house.
2. The Universe is uncaring and you will die alone in a studio apartment fire caused by the hot plate a broker described as an "amenity."
2. Stepping into a corner slush puddle of mysterious depth
Is it 2in deep? 3ft? Only one way to find out! And now you have typhus.
