Ever since KFC broughts us rodents on video,there has been a rash of closings. I was just at the post office purchasing my new Jamestown stamps and thought I would stop in for a Vietnamese Ice Coffee at Kelly Ping. Imagine my surprise to find four yellow posters plastered on the front , complliments of New York Dept of Health: This establishment has been closed for the violation of Mental and Physical health reasons ” ( or something along those lines. I took some photos with my disposable camera, a woman in a wrap dress and an accent came out screaming at me ‘ ‘What are you doing? Don’t take any pictures” We have enough problems !” I said I’m an artist, I live in the neighborhood - I’m a customer… ” she cut me off screaming louder( maybe thats what they meant by “mental health”) She said ‘ I don’t care if your a rich F….ng SOHO artist
, I took two more pictures while she was screaming ‘ “People are losing their JOBS!” You f…g Bitch!”Now I was really upset then she screamed”Get Out of here you F…ing dyke!” So I took Another picture and I thought hey lady when your place closes I’ll open up a clothing store called Dyke Gear, or” Dumplings and Dykes”She screamed louder almost crying ‘ What are you going to do put it on UTUBE? I never thought of it, my innocent little single use camera, a slide show?
