Lost In New York, parts 4716 - 4719

 4716. Then the old man, dressed in a grey undershirt and grease covered wool pants with cuffs, comes out from the kitchen, walks up to his wife and shouts, "Tell him No". Then he turns around, goes back into the kitchen and continues his cooking, or whatever it was he was doing.

 4717. The look on the old lady's face tells you that you can't have your coffee the way you want because of the husband in the kitchen, who will not allow it. But why won't he allow it you wonder.

 4718. You figure it out in an instant because it is obvious; when you did not get off the bus at the right stop, you ended up outside of the tourist area, and the tourist area is where everything is like Disney Land, groomed and cultivated for your express satisfaction.

 4719. But now you are in some region where people like yourself are hated, and the fact that you have money to spend in their establishments only makes their disgust for you more intense.
