I was getting my overcoat from the door.
A man came to me and started to ask about where I work (I work at a ski-resort); I told him where. He asked where exactly I worked.
I presented him with a promotional pen.
He declined. I dropped the pen at his feet.
He then turned to my friend to talk.
After that; without warning, he took hold of my hair.
Not for what I believe.
Not for what he believed.
Only for violence.
Violence was his media.
And I was his object.
Do I feel hate or the need for retaliation?
Because I could use the legal system to attain cash money. I could acquire wealth.
It is not my goal.
The man will not enter the bar (nor any other bar anywhere I dwell).
That will be my retaliation.
If any customer mentions themselves being a friend of his when I am at work; they will only have the seed to blame.
Strong feelings would be wasted on these individuals.
What would you have done?
