If you’ve ever wondered what city life is like …

Some days are normal. You wake up, go to work, come home, go to sleep.

Other days you wake up, go to work, walk out of the tube and hear a woman screaming in absolute anger.

You don’t think “Cool! A fight!” because it’s a big city and what if there is a knife flying around or you get hit with a stray fist?

Then you walk closer and hear:

THE BUS DRIVER WON’T LET YOU ON THE BUS IF YOU CAN’T FIND YOUR MONEY. IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR MONEY, YOU GO SIT DOWN, AND YOU LOOK FOR YOUR MONEY. IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR MONEY YOU AREN’T GETTING ON THE BUS BECAUSE YOU NEED MONEY TO GET ON THE BUS.

Because it’s a big city everyone walks by and either doesn’t notice or pretends it isn’t happening. I’ve learned that a lot of things can happen in a big city before people will stop and acknowledge.

  1. I actually found that kind of ‘walk on by’ approach really scary when I’ve visited a big city.

    • It is! People should conduct an experiment and put a fake, but obviously ridiculously real looking dead person on the sidewalk and see how many people notice and then keep walking. I bet it would be dozens.
