He seemed so excited to meet a fellow American that he returned after a few minutes to ask if she wanted to see the sights in Paris with him. He gave her his email address. Dude was 50.
First and foremost I’d like to give a nice, big “fuck you” to whoever picked my pocket today. And not a gentle “fuck you” but the rough, rapey kind where your asshole feels like some convicts ran a train on you; the kind where you can’t walk straight for days; the kind where you shit blood for a week.
