somebody threw shit on my sneaker today. yeah, that's right.
its an old india trick - I was in a touristy part pf town (I shouldn't have been, but I was. I was looking at a few tailors shops) and this shoe shine guy stops me and tells me I have shit on my shoe, and sure enough, there is this big glob of shit on my shoe.
anyway, he cleans it up, uses a number of different brushes and so on to clean it, and then he asks for 15 bucks - which is like a shoe shine guy in the states asking for $30,000, it is totally out of proportion. on top of that, I know that he, or one of his friends, had to have been the one who threw the shit, anyway.
so I pull out about 10 cents and walk away. he chases me for a block, with a group of friends, one of them, I kid you not, waving a cobra (the friend was a snake charmer who I am guessing was what cought my attention and allowed somebody to through shit on my shoe).
