Running Behind

"Getting pissed that someone is slowing me downdon't they know I have somewhere to be?!instead of getting mad at myself for not leaving home ten minutes earlier is not only ridiculous but also very New York. We're always running behind, overbooked, and missing the train all because some idiot (not us) made us late."
Phoebe Robinson, You Can't Touch My Hair
