Danny Trejo Must Really Need The Work

| Hamburg, Germany | Right | December 2, 2016

(I work in a somewhat difficult neigbourhood, with some gang violence here and there, but luckily I have never experienced anything bad. A strange-looking guy comes into the store, holding a big suitcase. As I am alone, he starts to look suspiciously around him, making sure, no one else is in the room. I start to get a little nervous as he comes to the register and puts the suitcase on the counter. He opens the suitcase and pulls out a big machete and starts to wave it around my face. I back up to the wall behind me and in my head start to say goodbye to my family and my cats. He then asked me in broken English:)

Man: “You want to buy knife? Is good knife. Really sharp knife. Can cut things. I give you for 100€.”

(As I realize that he doesn’t want to rob me, I say with a shaken voice:)

Me: “Eh, no… No, thank you. I… I don’t need a knife.”

Man: *then waves the machete around some more* “Is best knife. I can give you for 50€. Special price. I can give you for 30€. Buy knife?

Me: *shaking my head in disbelief* “No… thank you.”

(He then put the machete back in the suitcase, waved me goodbye, and went out of the store.)
