Weird incident of the day

I was wearing my 1960's-era vintage faux cheetah coat to work today, mostly because it's warmer and longer than my regular coat. And because it was so cold, I decided to ride Metro for one stop instead of walk the exposed 15 minutes across the pentagon reservation.

Anyway, as I was walking down the escalator onto the train platform, this guy was giving me an odd look that made me wonder if I knew him. As I passed him, he muttered, "can't breathe!" and then hawked phlegm loudly and acted like he was going to spit on my coat! (I'm pretty sure he kept it in.) Gross.

It's faux, dammit! Get a clue.


  1. What a psycho. That reminds me, I saw a bumper sticker this morning that said, "Animals are little people in fur coats." I had an immediate mental image of someone throwing red paint on a scared raccoon and yelling "MEAT IS MURDER!!" at it. Heh.

  2. unreal. whenever we wear fake fur, i think we all need to run around with a sticker that says: IT"S NOT REAL!

    and, if someone hocks a loogie on you, you should take note of their shoes and see whether they're leather. or their do-gooder man-bag, for that matter.


I appreciate the time you've spent reading my post and would love to read your comments!
