There is a guy in my building I always see when I go to work. Every time I see him, I try to be polite and say hello.
So one day we are in elevator...
He say, I notice you always bow when you see me.
He say, I dig it. It is a sign of respect.
I let that simmer in my belly for 2 second, then I say, I DON'T BOW WHEN I SEE YOU!
He say, yes you do. You dip your head after you say hello.
OH I DIP MY HEAD??
That is when I really cannot take it!
I LIVING HERE FOR 15 YEARS! You think I'm shy fobby tourist asking white man to take photo??
Then he say, I did not mean to offend you.
I say, of course you offend me! You make stooby comment, you lucky I don't kick you!
Now every time I see him in elevator, he hangs his head down low and don't say nuthin...
Now he kowtow to ME!!!
