BEAUTY TO FIGHT FOR.
I pulled up to some cheap ass gas station last night at 15th & U where most of DC cabbies fill up, there were three other cabs at the pump and two of them were yelling at each other, Sun cab #644 and Super cab #226, I didn't know what it was all about because they were screaming their lungs out in Ethiopian language (Amharic), since Washington has a large number of Ethiopian immigrants I managed to learn a few words but not to the extent to understand the yelling match. The word exchanges grew louder and louder and the next I know the driver of the Sun Cab started throwing punches at the other guy who is much bigger and kept running circles around the pumps to save his life, that was some funny shit to look at, it was like a script from the three stoogies, I couldn't stop laughing.
I managed to grab and hold the attacker while the driver of the Super Cab took off and drove away fast. I asked him what the fight was all about and he told me that the guy was giving his girlfriend, who is a bartender at an Ethiopian restaurant a hard time even after she told him she has a boyfriend, he said "he is lucky you saved him tonight next time he will be kissing my feet for mercy." He apologized and drove away.
Washington has tons of gorgeous Ethiopian chicks, and I think Ethiopian women are one of the most beautiful creatures in this planet, I don't blame them if they fought over one, but I don't think the driver of Super Cab# 226 put much of a fight besides running around in circles.
