“Good luck on your small spot,” said my rideshare client after I dropped him off at the airport.

I told him I like to park near Mall of America because I can get more passengers that way.

“I suppose there’s a lot of traffic there. what with the airport, hotels and stores”

“Oh Yeah,” I said happily.

I spoke to a lot of people about what it means to be passive in Minnesota, how the people remain quiet about a lot of things. One passenger from the east coast told me how people from New York speak to so many people on any given day that they don’t have no choice but to @be direct and authentic.

Must be nice.
