13 Struggles That People Who Don’t Live In New York Will Never Understand

No, we don’t think that the whole world revolves around the city and those of us in it (well, we try not to anyway ?), but there are some things that non-New Yorkers will just never understand. Like the feeling of tremendous yet utterly trivial triumph upon just catching the closing doors of the subway, or the fundamental seriousness and gravity of someone standing on the left…

1. Living in constant fear of the pigeon/rat/roach apocalypse.

2. Getting stuck behind slow walking tourists everywhere. And hating yourself/feeling important when you get annoyed about it.

3. Having to establish a very particular walking style to avoid them.

4. Not being able to get home for lunch – getting there takes twice the amount of lunch break available and an hour’s salary.

5. Not knowing whether that lady on the subway standing up is pregnant or not.

6. You giving up your seat… and it turning out she’s not.

7. Falling asleep on the subway and waking up in the middle of f*cking nowhere.

8. Or worse, back where you started.

9. Having a false sense of security that NYC is so big you’ll never bump into that ex/ex boss/ex friend/ex roommate…

10. And doing so at the worst possible time.


via GIPHY

11. Viewing apartments that look like former prisons (if you’re lucky) and having to give up all your money, body and possessions to be able to afford the rent.


via GIPHY

12. Living in an empty room for $2000/month because you sold all your possessions to get it. 


via GIPHY

13. Constantly complaining about NYC but never leaving because, well, it’s NYC!
