The Preciousness of the Midtown Cigarette Break

There can be no underestimation of how precious the Midtown cigarette break is. Indeed, it is the life blood that streams through the Midtown office worker’s veins, renewing energy and a strong enough presence of will to carry on. While many Midtowners vacillate between the importance of gym workouts and eating salads from Chop’t, the daily indulgence in a cigarette break cannot be denied.

Not only is it the perfect excuse to take leave from your cubicle during the cruel eight-hour span during which you must sit in the same place, but it’s also a great way to find out which of your co-workers is a semi-passable bad ass versus which ones are total narcs who probably live in Astoria. Because, let’s face it, the last thing you want is to share a cigarette with someone who’s content with their station in life, as the old adage, “Misery loves company” (just not the company they work for), is especially resonant in Midtown.
