Vent Your Annoyance, for a Buck

Tell me off, nyc Photo by myself at 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue, in Midtown.

A fellow sat just outside the main branch of the New York Public Library. His sign reads 'Tell me off for $1.00'.

It was really, really, really hot and humid in the city on Wednesday. Everyone was either holed up inside or on the streets, sweating and moving very slowly. A lot of folks, like the fellow above, resorted to taking off their shirts (all of them were men).

I've seen my share of signs in New York, and this one ranks near the top of the list. It strikes a nice balance between humor and urban rage.

Did you happen to stumble upon a reality TV show in the making? Maybe Undercover Boss or Undercover Millionaire. :-)

I hope some people rewarded him with $ just for giving them a smile!

If this is all I know about the guy, I suggest that he's a very wise man. Or at least a lever one.
