I had to go take care of some business one afternoon. I waited a long time for the person i had to see. I sat from about noon to a little after four p.m. in a medium size room full of people that had no windows. I was tired and i needed some air so i decided to go down to the first floor of the building and stood inside, leaning against a desk by the front entrance.
While i was minding my own business, looking out the glass door the security guard there behind the desk began to pick at me.”Are you alright?” he asked, trying to be funny.
I just ignored him. Then he kept on with other smart remarks and i still ignored him.
Then, he came out and said “Oh, i better call an ambulance for her!” He just kept showing off. I don’t know if the security guard suit went to his head or what. All i know is that i got tired of him and his mouth and i said “No, you better call immigration”.
And boy did he get excited. He was a black foreigner who had an accent and my words really got to him. He raised his voice at me saying get out of here! But i didn’t budge. Then he threatened to call security on me. For what? He should have kept his mouth shut.
And anyway, i thought he was security!
