Setting: 8 a.m., Second Ave & 4th St.
Her (middle-aged lady with rollie suitcase): How do I get to West 4th?
I point her towards the nearby F but she doesn't want to do stairs. I point her towards the bus.
Her: And I can get the 2 train there?
Me: No. Where are you going?
Her: Columbus Circle.
Me: The 2 doesn't go there either.
Then she tells me she's actually going farther uptown.
I don't know how people expect to get directions if they won't tell you where they're going!
