1- You take taxis whenever the feeling strikes. Don’t feeling like walking in sub-zero temps to the closest L train? Hail a cab! Not in the mood to stare at a stranger’s crotch on a packed subway ride? You don’t have to! Oh how I dream of this day…
2- You no longer stress over the tip/service ratio. Did she REALLY deserve 25% for that mediocre service? After all, those extra two bucks could buy you a morning coffee next week…but what if someone is watching? Scheisse.
3- You never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever have to stay in a hostel again. Suc-cess!!
4- You shop in a posh food market. Notice how I didn’t say grocery store? Organic lollipops for all!
5- You own a Burberry trench. **Note: This is my own personal yard stick of progress.
