What Scares New Yorkers? You’d Be Surprised at the Answer…

So some of you may have seen the video that’s currently going around on facebook about the rat on the train. Or not? I was surprised to find out (on my first day in New York) that New Yorkers…who are very tough (or the stereotype of them, at least), are very frightened of…rats??? Apparently a rat snuck its way onto a subway and was running around. Cue all the people on the subway jumping up on their seats, screaming, being terrified, etc. Now, I know that NYC rats are a whole different ballgame than others, probably, and I, for one, am certainly not a huge fan of rodents in general, but…really? For your own pleasure…here is the video! Btw, I just think it’s funny. No meanness or anything intended, just a tad of a laugh.
