You know what is fascinating about the East Coast? People in the service industry do not talk to you.
And I love it.
I drove through toll booths today and exchanged precisely no words with the people taking my toll. Well, one word, I said thanks. Because I’m a Midwestern plebeian who has had awkward, small talk manners forced into my personality.
But here on the East, I don’t have to say a word, and that – that is the American Dream.
