So today I was walking from work (The Speakeasy) towards the Bart train through Chinatown and saw a dude about my age walking towards me. An Asian guy…with a little pep in his step. As we got closer I noticed he was staring at me, so I kind of glanced at him. As he got a couple of steps past me he blurts out: ‘What the fuck you lookin at, nigga?’

I had my headphones on (Run the Jewels) but was positive I heard right. I turned to look at him and he stopped in the middle of the sidewalk and just started screaming at me. “what the fuck you lookin at nigga? you wanna fight you fucking piece of shit…blah blah blah…” I was taken aback…I’ve got zero interest in getting in a shouting match or a physical altercation with some random guy on the street…so I just kept it moving. I was sure to steal glances in car and shop windows to make sure he wasn’t about to run up on me. Dude kept screaming for a good 15 seconds.

Anyways. Fucking strange. People are fucking strange.
