Asian hipster to friend: A blind woman with a cane comes up to me at the crosswalk and asks if its okay to cross. I tell her yeah, the light just changed. Next crosswalk she catches up to me asks same question and I tell her no, the light is still red. She goes anyway. New York… Even the blind jaywalk!
