I guess NYC can still be a little sketchy afterall…

So this morning I was walking to school, and had a bit of an incident. This drunken homelessĀ dudeĀ (I think he was homeless?) walked by me and when he passed, he brushed this bag he was carrying against my arm, and then he dropped it. Then, he stopped, turned around and said “excuse me….EXCUSE ME”. I should have kept walking, but I turned around. He said I broke his bottle of wine. I apologized, then he told me that he was taking it home to his wife and I should buy him a new one. I told him I didn’t have any money, but he kept bothering me. I decided to slowly start walking up to school while talking to him, so we’d get into a less isolated area. He told me to go to an ATM, but I really didn’t want to because I didn’t think this was my fault. Anyways, when I got to about 110th street, a police cruiser pulled up next to us, and I kinda looked at the cops in the car like I needed some help, and the drunken guy must have realised what was up, because he finally left me alone. I know it could have been a LOT worse, I didn’t get mugged or anything, but I think I’ll be taking the bus to school in mornings from now on. I guess I should check the m104 schedule before tomorrow morning.
