jaylectricity: Who are they forming a union against? Unions work because of power of numbers. Many employees, one owner. In this case they would be going up against the general public with nothing to offer but novelty photographs.


I vote we let them unionize. Then we refuse their demands. Then they'll have no choice but to strike.

I go to NY maybe once or twice a year, and am most certainly a tourist. I have zero desire to go near Times Square.

I see people wandering our the touristy parts of my city taking pictures and tipping the guy in revolutionary war gear, the gold painted gargoyle, the dance troupe, the street magician etc etc.

It doesn't hurt me even a little bit.

There's a million other things to see and do.


New York's alright if you like saxophones.

tripleseven: farkheads who stop at the top of the subway stairs to check their phone before entering the subway.

I usually say very loudly: "There are a hundred better places for you to stop and stand, find one please"


If you just shove them down the stairs they'll never make that mistake again.

\instead, they'll block the handicapped elevator

rzrwiresunrise: The trick' of course' is when you can't remove it, so you're on the hook to pay.


Really? Under what law?

It's generally assumed in a contract that the party with more information bears the burden of a misunderstanding in terms. My understanding is that it was free. Your move.

\This is where the assumption that all Americans are armed comes in handy.

I took my son to get a pic with Spongebob but the line was huge. Luckily, SB was in the store window so I told my son to go outside and press his face against the window and make it look like they won't let him in. Best character pic evah.

kronicfeld: A union? Against whom are they collectively bargaining? This would be a guild or a trade association at best.


A guild...of calamitous intent.
