Letter: We're picking up some bad habits
To the editor of THE EAGLE:
As I drove into the parking lot of Price Chopper in Lenox, I noticed you inching your car forward, and then you pulled out right in front of me. You quickly drove down the aisle of the parking lot and I decided to go onto the next row to avoid you, but you came speeding around the corner in front of me and cut me off, taking the space I was pulling into.
I try not to generalize but I did notice your New Jersey license plates. I lived in the city and I know how stressful it can be. I know that traffic can be a nightmare and everyone is out for themselves, it’s a matter of survival.
I wanted to tell you that we don’t drive like that, we don’t need to act rudely around here, but then I realized that our little town has changed so much, and really, most of the people are not from here, they are from New York and New Jersey and they are impatient and selfish and rude just like you. Sadly, our town is a reflection of you.
