OK, folks, whip off the headphones and start listening. I heard some shit today that was really hard to turn away from, and you know, I only heard it because I was futzing with my radio. This woman and this guy were standing on the sidewalk next to a bike rack. She said,
"you're not my friend..Those are women who just want to fuck!"
and the guy sort of looked at the ground and said, "but---"
well it went on from there. I'm sure you can imagine. I wasn't really sure of what had happened, but the situation was readable. A man and woman in their twenties in hipster gear. A woman dressing down a man who had done something to wreck their friendship. She was so mad, but not so mad, or so "over" whatever their relationship was that she was walking the other direction. She was giving him a dressing down, telling him what was what, giving him a lecture to let him know just how badly he had fucked up. He was looking for excuses, explanations, and not really getting a word in.
I really, really wanted to be a spectator (and I tell you, I wasn't the only one. Like cars going by a traffic accident, people were rubbernecking all over the sidewalk).... But - I put on my headphones. Some things, we're not meant to hear...even when they happen in public.
tell me what you heard on the street today.
