City Pigeons are Gangsta
I don’t know whether it is just Chicago ones, but city pigeons are gangsta as hell. Coming to work today, I encountered at least 5 tough ass pigeons who I was about to defer to. When did it become that you actually have to say “excuse me” to some little rodent birds because they stay in the way?
The pigeons were walking on the sidewalk like they belonged there, and downtown Chicago sidewalks during commuting time means there already isn’t a lot of maneuvering space. So add some strolling birds to it and you have pedestrian gridlock. The birds even waited for the light to turn green so they could cross the street. “Mofos, can’t you fly?? Eff you in MY way for when you could be airborne?” Ol’ dusty ass, gangsta ass birds!
In fact, I was getting on the El (elevated train) once, and on the platform was a pigeon who was clearly also waiting for the Orange line. He looked at me like “Ain’t this late train some bullshit?” I did agree though. Anyway, the train came, and this little fool got on it, and got off at the next stop. I coulda sworn he also gave me that head nod.
*Sigh* The natural order is being shaken up.
