Confirmed: Biological Terrorism Hits New York

My guy friend and I stopped on the sidewalk to finish up a conversation and say goodbye. A man walks by and gave a hard shoulder nudge to my friend and kept walking. 

Guy friend: Yeah, excuse me!
Man: You stopped in the middle of the sidewalk. You can’t stop in the middle of the sidewalk; people need to get by. 

An argument ensues, then the man walks away. He changes his mind, walks back and gets within inches of my friend’s face. 

Man: I have a cold and I’m going to talk right in your face!
