I was walking to the train last evening and passed a couple standing on a corner looking at a map, then looking around, then back at the map. So I went back and said, "Do you need help?"
They said, "Yes, thank you, where is the Drury Lane Theater?"
I gave them directions (they were very close) and then the man said, "Can you tell me something else?"
I said, "Sure."
In German-accented English he asked, "Why is it in Chicago whenever we open a map, boom! someone stops to help us? This doesn't happen in New York. It doesn't happen in any other city we visit. It's amazing. Chicago has the nicest people!"
