Things People have said to me on the Street

  • All sorts of crazy people accost me while I’m peaceably walking 
  • This happens to me all over the city
  • These are in no particular order or chronology
  • It does not include people asking me for directions
 What was said:
  • Damn! Anyone ever tell you that you’re built like a black woman? (said by man sitting in front of his low income housing)
  • MMMMMMM you sure are juicy! (said by homeless man on bicycle)
  • You retarded bitch! (said by mentally ill woman when I didn’t give her money)
  • Don’t you know it’s Christmas? (said by homeless man asking me for money on January 4th)
  • SMACK! (no words, but me getting my ass slapped (hard) by Mexican guy on a bicycle)
  • Cookie? (asked by homeless man holding a crumpled open box of girl scout cookies in exchange for money)
  • Don’t go to North Philly! You’ll die in North Philly! (said by crazy homeless woman)
  • MMM Looking good girl! (said by flamboyant queen)
  • PUTA! (said by white frat guys in a car)


  1. Did you forget what we screamed at each other on the street?

  2. Forget? It's an entire blog post! Or will be...

  3. I'm so excited that I may start an argument just for the fun of it.

  4. The "cookie?" one makes me sad . . .

  5. I think the North Philly warning is a pretty safe blanket premonition for anyone going to North Philly!

  6. Petey - the cookie one just grossed me out.
    Kennie - I agree! I haven't been to North Philly yet!
