NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The temperature isn’t the only thing getting hot these days. If you’ve been outside, you may have noticed tempers are flaring.
As CBS 2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported Thursday, the hot weather does a lot to our behavior.
There’s road rage, air rage, fan rage at sporting events, and now we have heat rage. It’s not new. It’s actually part of our language. Tempers flare, anger simmers and boils over, and of course there’s the proverbial hothead.
Gomez took to the 98-degree streets Thursday to measure the mood of New Yorkers.
“I’m agitated right now! I’m trying to go and bumping into people. I can’t do it! Y’all can have the heat! I’m staying indoors,’ said Teirra Francis of Manhattan.
