“Old dude! What the heck, man? How about some freaking service?”

“Are you deaf?”
David said nothing. He sat still.
“See! I told you! He’s an imbecile.” One’s finger twirled around an ear.
Wondering how he should get rid of these churls, David sighed. The article on the new city project was infinitely more interesting than these tourists.
One of the women approached him. “Old-timer, do you even speak English?”
Smiling, David shook the paper. “Kan ik u helpen?”
