His night ended up in the hospital getting a rabies shot and stitched up from the chunk of flesh that was bitten off of him. Yep, this happened.
right... this is exactly the type of thing I'd like to avoid.. and keep my flesh. Funny reversal of the psycho thing occurred.... I was dining alfresco in the Santa Monica promenade with my ex-gf.... when this guy comes up to try panhandling for money. (For the record I am white, my gf Asian the guy is black.) Now we're in a fenced off area for the restaurant's outside dining and I'm none too pleased being interrupted, but I try to be polite with a "hey man, not at the moment please... the lady and I are trying to enjoy some lunch" kinda thing. The guy literally goes berserk and starts yelling at me "you n*ggr this" "you f'g n*ggr that" and I'm like "wtf asshole have you looked in the mirror recently?" (I know rude but he brought it on.) anyway my gf (who has a bit of a accent and is clearly not American) is just naive or crazy she starts on with "no wrong answer!! not a n*ggr... he is cracker and I am chink! White boy is cracker and Asia girl is chink!!" That's almost exactly what she said (scary I know...she was a real piece of work). This big ol' dude just gets all quizzical... like "what the fuck is wrong with THIS bitch!"
It was actually hilarious b/c he suddenly hadn't a clue how to respond... he wasn't expecting my crazy-ass gf!! Not only that, but clearly there were other people (white, black, Asian and otherwise) in the restaurant and they weren't sure whether to applaud her efforts for standing up for herself, or be dismayed by her total lack of concern at shouting these racial epithets. Shortly thereafter, restaurant staff told the guy to leave. It was an interesting meal to say the least....
