I am gona sue you!

I was taking a tea break at the taxi stop on 28th street & lexington ave when another cabbie pulled right beside me, he asked if I was leaving. I told him since he needed the spot badly coz he pulled over and asked me I would be happy to leave and park on the firehydrent as I am sitting in my car. He said no but then started telling/asking me about something.
just right then an african american stopped by my side and asked him "will you take me to china town bus station?"
since I was parked and the other guy was looking for parking he asked me, " you wana take this job its a good one."
african american spoke up and said, "look tell me who is gona take me because I am gona sue your ass."
the other cab driver was shocked for a moment and said, " what?"
african american. " dont act like you dont speak english, you just talked to me in english. I am a taxi driver in philadelphia I know what you are pulling. now tell me who is it taking me to the station you or him. or I am gona write down your number and sue one of you"
now he pointed at me and I dont do wrong and dont take wrong. I rolled down my window and asked him whats your problem? before he could start pulling crap on me I told him
" this is a taxi parking, I am off duty and parked this guy is looking for parking, none of us can take you he was only asking me if I wanted to finish my break and take him & I was confirming the address where in china town this bus station is. so if you wana sue mention them that taxi driver was having a tea & was sitting on a taxi stand.
he said." I am a taxi driver in philadelphia ...."
me, " this is new york city welcome to new york city."
him. " I know what shit you pull here I am a taxi driver"
me. " and I know what you are trying to pull wana sue go sue." & I showed him the taxi parking sign too
him, " I know what you are trying to pull, you gota serve first come first serve on line"
me," you are not on a line its a parking stand & we are taking a break, you know a break?"
him, " I know you trying to be smart."
me, " no you are trying to be over smart, but dont."
him. " i m gona sue you son of a b****"
me, "you son of a b***** mother f****".

sorry you had to go through that. it's sad when people assume that all taxi drivers are racist, when they are not available for service. it's happened to me too.
