Today, getting off a bus, it was pouring rain so I got my umbrella out. A man elbowed me in the gut and grabbed it. When I told my mom about it she said, "That's New York, get over it." FML

Let's face it, in all these places, you will have some jerks, and some lovely people.
Getting rather bored with all these stereotypes about what people are like in certain areas of the world. Every individual person is different! :)

@59 I'm sure you could punch a Canadian in the face and they would apologize. Or you could mug one and they would be so kind as to invite you for dinner.

#32 - I highly doubt that's it, because I'm a five foot tall, 100 lb Asian female and even my friends can't help but be amazed I've never been mugged because I'm often in the city alone and at night. xD It's probably more of what #27 said.

Sadly, in New York City, the police would probably respond as OPs mom did.
Unless the cops see a man running with an umbrella printed with "This is 'OPs' umbrella"
they're not going to do anything.

In new York people don't just elbow people and steel things maybe if you're in a bad neighborhood, but if so you shouldn't have been there. But never the less that extremely sucks, and I definitely feel bad!

Dear #17,

Your sentence is missing any punctuation marks. Consider yourself corrected and please try to seek an education.
