Crash into me

No park--no ring--no afternoon gentility--
No company--no nobility--
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease.
No comfortable feel in any member--
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds, November!

- Thomas Hood, November
And no brakes, either! And no brains....third time in two years someone has tried to make a drive-through of the Aubergine Cafe--our beloved coffee shop and chit-chat hangout on Skillman Avenue and Fiftieth Street in Woodside.

Probably distracted on the phone or text messaging, despite what New York's laws otherwise say.

OH that just stinks. Such a nice little place. They don't deserve that. I wonder what was wrong with the driver in this case.

Coffee shops have a rep as being yuppie hangouts. So the drivers of these autos might've just been looking to do a good deed by mowing some down.
