New Yorkers are viewed the world over as impatient and aggressive with notoriously short-tempers. In just twenty seconds, two businessmen have reinforced that reputation and swiftly epitomzed the stereotype of residents in the Big Apple.
The suit-wearing men achieved this embarrassing feat last week when they were captured on film getting into a brawl over a cab in Manhattan's financial district. In the video, the portlier of the two men gives the first shove as the other balls his fists. Continuing to barge each other, the men race to the taxi - seemingly unaware of a young woman who has to dodge out of their way.
The men continue grappling as they both try and get in the cab and one succeeds in getting the other in a head lock. The fight was caught on video by a passer-by who promptly posted it on YouTube on Thursday.
