A Bronx Tale

Staffers from Naomi Rivera’s office contacted Observer headquarters today to inquire about the best email address to send press releases to. But upon giving the caller the general address, the staffer was unable to understand editorial@observer.com.

The frustration in my voice was audible after the fourth time of saying editorial at observer dot com and the caller inquired as to why I had an attitude. I informed her that I didn’t and had to go.

She proceeded to call back and inquire once again, informing me that she had some time on her hands to discuss it. I again informed her that I didn’t and had to go.

A senior staffer called just a few minutes later to inquire why I was unable to give our email address to her worker.

Only in the Bronx kids, only in the Bronx.
