I dunno if this experience is worth-sharing or not. If you think this is inappropriate or gonna affect the feelings of particular race or class, do not share it.
I stay in Dallas on H4 visa.
I was just learning driving.
I was driving with the trainer seated beside.
We stopped at the gas station beside the gas tank.
The trainer left the car saying he would fill the fuel. I was sitting still in the driver’s seat.
He went into gas station before fueling and was back in 3-4 minutes.
Meantime,there were two cars, one in-front of me at another gas tank, the other was behind me(it seems the back car missed the slot in which I parked.)
I was on phone. Suddenly, I dunno what happened, two African American ladies from the back and the front cars came and started pointing finger towards me and shouting something.
I slid my glass door down and said am still learning and the trainer will be here in a minute.
I am sure there are other slots to use too. They became really aggressive and started abusing.
I closed my glass door back again. They just stood there all the time(4-5 minutes) calling the number on the car and shouting.
The guy came and they said something to him. The guy ignored them started fueling. They moved to another slot but still they were shouting.We left from there ignoring them.
I guess its the driver’s mistake not to fuel as soon as we got there. Yet, there are other unused slots too.
Why does they have to be so aggressive?
Why are they so crazy?
Seriously, Where do these guys come from?
I don’t really get it.
This may not sound serious. But, I do know heck of lot of crazy incidents happened especially with the particular kind of race.
Once, my husband was pointed a gun by a African American guy( in Cleveland).
You might have also known similar kind of experiences with the many immigrants(especially) working,studying,etc..
We always flaunt about the greater things of America. I sure agree it.
But, what can we do about incidents like these?
How can students especially can handle these kind of situations?
We don’t know what may happen if we reply rudely; they may carry guns.
I just want to know how to handle these or even worse kind of situations?
