The Old Lady in the Chicken Place

The most interesting thing I saw was when I was in the chicken place near where I live at in the Bronx. Me and my friends was in the chicken place and we was eating and this lady was there and she was eating and she was having a baby and she had about three beef patties with cheese and pepperonis on them. This poor lady or crackhead came in and asked for some change. Everybody give her some change, I give her like 50 cent or 75 cent, I really don’t know, so then she left and came back and there was some real Black boyz in there. They was mad black and she ask them for some change and then I guess they give it to her. Then she took they basketball and she starting playing with it and the basketball went flying on the other side of the room and she went to go get it and she fell into the door and me and my friends was rolling, we was dying laughing.
