Walking away

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Peter was a Japanese. He told me as a kid he'd been tortured and molested in a Christian cult up in Oxnard. He left, and his mother won't have anything to do with him as he is now evil. [/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I read the Facebook share from another neighborhood warning about this Asian guy claiming to be a doctor who'd lost his wallet- could you see it in your heart to loan him a few so he could get his medicine in broken English.
I knew that face. [/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I had a guy tell me I was evil- told me that seriously, and said why was I smiling? I was not. Through his spittle he actually thought for a moment I was going to hit him with my scaffold bar.
Seriously? -an I had to walk away from my couple-thousand he-still-owed-me for work I'd done over a year - "When I get rich I'll pay you." [/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=.SF UI Display][FONT=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]Seriously? [/FONT][/FONT]

I walked away, but sometimes I am reminded, and I look back. [/FONT][/FONT]
