Chicago-Home of the Super Friendly
I couldn't have been more wrong. I was just getting on the elevator, and our doorman greeted me with a big smile and a "How are you doing?", and one of our maintenance guys wished me a "Happy Valentine's Day!" Are you kidding? Could they be any nicer? Earlier this morning I had a gentleman hold a door open for me. Certainly not the slamming the door in my face like I expected.
Sure, occasionally a cab driver almost plows me down, or an old crazy woman channeling her inner Hans Solo nearly knocks me out with her cane, but all-in-all, I have to say Chicago is one of the friendliest cities in this country. Sure the weather isn't always great, but the people's warm smiles make up for it.
