Dear Old Lady on the train,
There is a phrase by Coco Chanel that goes “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” This applies to you, please consider it next time.

Dear New York City Students,
Today is the first day of standardized state testing. Rock it. I have faith that you can prove that one test doesn't measure all you know.

Dear Trader Joe's Employee,
You were quite enthusiastic, but I do not need your personal feeling about every item I buy. If I am buying it there is a good chance that I either like it already or someone recommended it to me. Please don't try to convince me "it's the most awesome (insert any item here) you've ever had!" It's annoying and takes extra time.

Dear Nail Polish,
Why can't I master the art of applying you streak free? Why do you have to make it so damn difficult?
