And That Famed SFNE Rudeness Is Where, Exactly?

This morning Team SFNE decided to stop at Dunkin for coffee and breakfast while taking The Boy to school. As we got ready to depart, a big delivery truck from Vincenzo's Bakery in Somerville pulled up alongside. Normally this isn't worth noting, except that the vehicle blocked my view of the parking lot's traffic. (This is one of those extra-busy Dunkins in a not-quite-big-enough strip center lot. Visibility and maneuverability are dicey at best, even without a big delivery truck parked next to you.)

Seeing that I was ready to back out, the driver of the truck motioned for me to stop, got behind the car, and directed me out of the spot--all the while slowing other cars so we could make our getaway safely. Thanks to people like the Vincenzo's Bakery truck driver, my day got off to a great start.

But we have to keep in mind that many people don't like having their beliefs shaken up, such as the belief that all New Englanders are uniformly rude and cold. So don't go spreading this story around, unless you want your weekend to get off to a great start.

I hate the perception of New Englanders. I think we're far nicer than New Yorkers - but not quite as nice as Virginians!!
