Tonight, six of us were walking down by Pike's market, on a very commonly traveled road, when out of the blue some huge guy in a big coat whips out a knife, walks right up to me, and yells, "I'm gonna cut your f*cking throat!" We then proceeded to run with great vigor.
I know I'm not much of a "city" guy, but wow, if that's what I have to look forward to, count me out. Geez.
Yeah that doesn't happen much. Sorry you found one of the super crazies on the first go. That's part of living in a compact city though.
Haha yeah I know it was an odd occurrence. I actually visit a few times a year and this was certainly a rarity, albeit a wtf rarity. And to top it off, not ten minutes later, I witnessed some dude try to carjack someone's car by pulling a knife out and telling the guy to open his window. The guy just drove off...
