Is it just me?
Needing to work Chol HaMoed is a real downer, and is bad enough on its own, but for me this CHM, nothing was as difficult as davening locally in a "minyan factory". This shul happens to have attracted all types recently, owing to it's constant Minyonim and bright new Minyan rooms, and I guess that's what makes me so uncomfortable. The fact that it's Chol haMoed only adds to the lack of comfort.
Whether it's Yeshivishe guys with 4 day beards having a "reyd", or Veise zokken shnooks with farkvetshte faces, davening in such a Minyan doesn't easy for the Tzig. Add to that the fact that I'm not vey sociable to begin with and there's a recipe for disaster.
What is it about me that I have a time accepting every Yid for who he is? Is it the fact that they don't?
