What I've learned from working in the city, part 2:

-No matter what temperature the weathermen (or in my case, Weatherbug) may claim it is, it always feels at least 10 degrees colder in the city. I first noticed this during a trip to Toronto one spring when I only brought along a thin coat and became a popsicle quite rapidly.

-Men who dress as Superman (and princesses, and alligators...) are commonplace. It seems like every major city has one. This particular one decided to try to carry on a conversation with me about how he was looking for a new wife since his last one had died.

-No one obeys "elevator etiquette". I mean, I don't know about you guys, but I can still hear my mother's voice telling me, "Let the people on the elevator exit first, then get on." Yet, I've been nearly trampled several times as I'm exiting. Do we need to post signs or something?

-I finally understand the appeal of "casual Friday" now that I work in an office that doesn't offer it. By the time Friday rolls around I am tired and most of my work clothes are dirty. Nothing would make me happier then jeans and a hoodie on Friday's. (Except maybe jeans, a hoodie, and free soy caramel machiattos. Take note, corporate America!)
