so....you've had quite the weekend. your heroineing adventure hit newspapers on saturday, you can read it here if you are interested. you know, if your traumatic experience has left you shaken and forgetful.
still confused as to what i am referring to? k, so apparently you were walking in NYC, city of apples, a few days ago. just texting (no doubt something deep and super important that couldn't wait until you not walking)and minding your own business when out of nowhere the ground was no more and you fell. fell into an opened manhole. yes, you were so busy texting your deep thoughts that you totally missed that there was a huge gaping hole in the effing ground!
now the men that were working on this manhole said that they left it unattended for a minute. they left so they could go get some big, bright orange cones to put around the hole. huh, the irony.....
granted, they probably should have left one dude there, while the other went to get the cones, but i am sure they thought that no one would be able to miss the fact that that there was a hole. and certainly no one would be dumb enough to walk into it. congrats 16 year old alexa from staten island, you proved them wrong!!
now, your mama is trying to sue. of course she is. she can't face the neighbors now that the country, or at least the greater tri state area, knows that her child is an effing idiot. so she must place blame on someone else. it shouldn't matter that you weren't paying attention. it shouldn't matter that you were texting. someone should have held your hand and helped you.
so, i guess someone will now suggest that protective padding be placed in or around any inanimate objects, you know something like this:
quick, someone call the mayors office, they need to idiot proof the city,
