“What gives, ladies?”
Doris muttered “The man across the street talks dirty, threatening, like.”
Dave stood up. “I'll take care of him.”
“No!” Gertie cried. “He'll hurt you.”
“Nah. I'm ex-Navy, the S.E.A.L.s.”
Dave crossed the street.
Without preamble he said quietly, “quit bothering the ladies.”
“Stop me, mother-fucker.”
Dave moved toward him.
“Dude, I'm calling the cops.”
The cops arrived, ran a routine check. There was 15 year old outstanding arrest warrant for murder. He was one stupid jerk.
