They Shoot Douches, Don't They?

This asshole has his Mac plugged into the wall with the cord hanging directly in front of the doorway at Paradise Cafe, essentially booby-trapping the joint so someone gets hurt. I am praying the next person who comes in trips and sends his hipster computer flying across the place.

UPDATE: A quintessential New Yorker walked up to the guy a few minutes later and said, "This is really fucking stupid" to which the guy sheepishly replied, "Is it?" Mr. New York explained WHY (I had to struggle to hold my applause) and then the selfish YouTube fan packed up his laptop and left. It must be nice to be able to SAY what I only dream of. Bravo, sir!

Is everything ok? You haven't seemed like yourself the past 2 or 3 weeks. You tone has been decidedly angry and critical. It almost seems like someone else is writing for you but I know that's not true.

I hope all is well and that you return to your more humorous style.

I'm fine, thanks. I just have little patience for rudeness.

I enjoy the way you 'speak up' on your blog.
It's more problematic to publically disabuse a stranger.

The stupidity of people knows no limits.

applause? i would have burst out laughing; this guy is a perfect example of what one of my fourth grade classes came up with for a definition of an "idiot" - he's too stupid to know that he's ignorant! 9-year olds get it right away...

Why is it that people don't think anymore on the rest of the world, just about themselves. That's what that guy thought "Mmm, I can use MY MAC laptop and have it charged at the same time. I don't care about the rest of the people or the people who come into this place. It's all about ME!"

This kind of behavior truly boggles the mind -- are people like this really just this clueless and/or self-centered? And yes, it would've been an excellent lesson if someone had tripped and destroyed his laptop!

And how about all those people who decide to stop suddenly in the middle of a busy sidewalk or subway platform...
