Weird Wednesday – Weird Pittsburgh
Now before all you Burghies go getting offended, “weird” in this instance means “different than what I’m used to.”
Here are some things I have encountered in Pittsburgh so far this week that have differed from what happens in my normal world:
- I nearly died a couple times on I-376 when people actually stop – I’m talking dead stop; from 70 mph to 0 mph in mere seconds – on a 6-lane freeway to let cars merge onto said 6-lane freeway from entrance ramps and rest areas. Are you kidding me?
- The CVS across from my hotel closes at 7:00 pm. I guess I got spoiled by the 24-hour CVS a block from my hotel in mid-town Manhattan.
- A cash-only restaurant. Right in bustling Market Square, mind you! You don’t see that much anymore.
- The aforementioned banana crisis!
Will report back if I encounter any more weirdness while I’m here!
