If I ask you what city you live in please don't tell me Manhattan. Is there anyone here from NYC that can explain to me why people think Manhattan or Staten Island are cities. Queens too!

ME: What city did this happen in?
Person: Oh Queens.
ME: Okay, but what city in Queens?
Person: Queens, NY

Because they hate explaining to everyone what a borough is. Why are you being such a cunt about it. Don't you have anything more important to cmplain about?

Did you know that old New York was once New Amsterdam? I can't say why they changed it, but I guess that people just liked it better that way.

It's annoying as shit just because when people call in for my work I have to fill out a form that says what the city and state something happened in. These fucking stupid cunts end up arguing with me for about 2-3 minutes each time about what city they live in. I had another insurance agent call in yesterday. For about 5 minutes I was telling him that its okay if you don't know what city its in. He kept repeating Manhattan. I was trying to explain to him Manhattan is an Island or a Borough but not a city. I finally told him "You know what? I'll just put down New York City because we're not sure."

He was then like "Fine, I'll google it." Another minute wasted.....then he returns with "Well, maybe the city is actually Staten Island."

I wanted to scream at this motherfucker who was wasting my damn fucking time.

It was originally settled by the dutch who called it New Amsterdam. Later they were mostly forced out by more English friendly settlers who changed it to New York because they didnt like the Dutch.

SO PUT NYC EVERY TIME SOMEONE SAYS BROOKLYN, OR QUEENS, OR BRONX, STATEN ISLAND, MANHATTAN.

ISN'T THAT WHAT THE ANSWER ALWAYS ENDS UP BEING

I DO NOT SEE THE ISSUE HERE

I don't have time to do that for every stupid person that lives there. I usually do end up putting NYC but there's a few other choices too. Like Sunnyside or different towns inside of NYC.

So you have time to argue with them for 2 minutes, but not to google it for 30 seconds.

Hmm, I heard that too, but I'm pretty sure it was the Turks, not the Dutch.
