practicing confrontation

downtown asheville, walking past the jerusalem garden restaurant this morning, a man who looked to be the owner or manager was hosing down the sidewalk. spraying water on and in between all the cement blocks to wash cigarette butts into the street or in front of his neighboring businesses on either side.

he paused as i needed to walk on the sidewalk he was spraying

me: you know we're in a terrible drought?

him: (yelling) people should not be allowed to smoke on the street!

me: don't you have a broom? this is so irresponsible and greedy.

him: (glare)
