Photo stories II

These photos are in the same sequence within a time period of 35 seconds. After a very important victory against Italy in the World cup Qualifier, I was on my way home from the bar, *Note: Due to the time difference the game was played at 11.30 in the morning in San Francisco. The time was around 1 pm and I had got a couple of drinks in me while watching the game. I was on my way home and with a big smile on my face. I use to live in the famous Tenderloin in San Fran, which is well known for all the crazy people that stroll down the streets and this was no exception. Like we can see on the image, I first saw this fire truck which looked pretty cool, seconds later I see this man, and I ask kindly if I can take a photo of him and he agreed with a smile on his face, but with my drunk mind I couldn't predict what was going to happen next. After the photo was shot he flipped, he started yelling at me and thought I was with the police, feds or DEA. He wanted money, I first refused, but then he raised his golf stick and yelled give me money, so I reached down my wallet and thought he can have a couple of bucks, but when he saw that I had more money in my wallet he got aggressive. I was shitting myself threw him the remaining money in my wallet and took the sprint. Man I have never been so scared in my life. But in the end of the day, I got the photo!
