Take My Puppy!

There's nothing unusual about seeing drunks walk around aimlessly at 6:00 in the morning here in New York. In fact, I've found that it's actually quite a normal thing to see around here. There are, after all, no shortages of after-hours bars that cater to those that want to stay obliterated past the 4:00 a.m. closing of the regular bars. I've actually found that the streets are quite dangerous between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., as all the drunks are either drunkenly driving home or walking (staggering) home as night turns into day.

So, there seemed nothing out of the ordinary this morning for me as I was jogging through my neighborhood and I saw a man stumbling through the streets. He was yelling incomprehensibly to everyone and no one, but I just ignored him and kept on jogging.

However, on my jog back home, I saw that the drunk man had stopped and was yelling at an old Mexican man with a little puppy. As I jogged towards them, I strained to hear what was being said.

"Give me your puppy, old man!" the drunk man yelled.

"Please, sir, go away!" the old man pleaded.

"Give me your f*ckin' puppy! I'll take your fuckin' puppy!"

I saw the drunk man step forward and knock the old Mexican man's sancho hat off his head. As the old man bent down to pick up his hat, I saw the drunk man step closer towards the old man, and it looked like he was going to kick the old man in the head.

In fear that something bad would happen and without thinking, I yelled,"What the hell is going on here?!"

"Who the f*ck are you, you little chink b*tch?" yelled the drunk man.

"I'm the b*tch that's gonna kick your ass if you don't leave this man alone," I said calmly, and with much more confidence than I felt.

I'm not sure why, but the drunken man started to walk away. Perhaps it was my intimidating 4'11 frame. Or more possibly, the fact that I had my wolf with me frightened him away.

"Here, mister! You want a puppy?! Take mine!"

  1. That is awesome! I was in DC once and a man was hitting a girl in a car. Without even thinking, (stupid) I ran up to the car and yelled "what the hell are you doing?". The man stopped for a moment and the woman jumped out of the car and ran down the street. I than proceeded on my way rather quickly wondering what the "hell" I had just done...

    Nice job!

  5. go Kiri, or it could be you black belt butt would kick his you know what. Girl I got your back, good for you, that poor old man, and tell him he got it wrong with the nationality and to get a clue. maybe he could be more of a pleasent person if he went to AA...
    Someone should tell him he if he is a mean drunk he shouldn't drink at all. Be a nice drunk if you are going to drink...still no excuse but have no other comments on drinking seeing as I don't drink, but if it was me, I would have kicked his a*s for even making me yell or address him, then kick it again just for making me have to kick it the first time...

    You go chink!!!! heheeee

  7. that's extremely brave of you nova! :)

    i'm 5'7 and i shamefully think i'd be chicken to do that.

    this also reminded me of a show that makes social experiments. just to test what people would do in similar situations.

  8. Good for you! I witnessed a domestic dispute last week and didn't say a thing. Didn't even anonymously call the police. As a society, we've gotten too used to minding our own business, even when we see people hurting.

  10. Awwweee....he didn't get his chance to get his ass kicked by a 4'11" girl. He missed out. Glad you rescued the old man and the puppy. Pisses me off when people pick on the elder esp if they are immagrents.

  11. If he backed down from you it shows he wasn't that drunk. :D

  12. Why am I reminded of the scene in Teenwolf where Michael J Fox orders a keg of beer, only to be told he's under age - then he asks again using his wolf voice and glowing eyes and the store dude craps himself? Ok, now I guess you're going to tell me you're too young to remember Teenwolf... :)

    Good for you. Batman could learn from you :)

  15. Cool story! Hey, glad you found me too, I only just set that up a few days ago, I missed having a blog... to answer your question, I do like Patsy Cline but it would be silly for me to try to play music like that, no one would recognize it.
    A good first guitar is any guitar in your price range that you fall in love with! If you can't stop touching it, then you'll know. :)
