Beside every man acting stupid will be a hot woman.
On the way back from bowling, where I got a ride with Shuaib and Sushmita, we were going north on Warden Avenue when out of nowhere this red Mustang emerged, from a parking lot onto the main road, completely swerving and cutting us off. I think Shuaib literally fell on the horn - it was a prolonged, loud, series of blasts.
The brake lights of the Mustang lit up, and the driver's door opened. Oho! Churir upor shina juri! The guy wanted a piece of us, eh! Shuaib got out as well. And since I was the other guy in the car, I had to get out too. Not that I think Shuaib needed any help - he used to work as a part time bouncer for night clubs in our college days - I was there to stop any fights.
The driver of the Mustang was an Indian guy, our age, with his jeans pulled way up, hair combed back, covered with either gel or Dabur Amla, red pullover, sunglasses on (even though it was 10 pm). In other words, a Hero Hiralal wannabe. He started to shout at Shuaib, who also started to shout back.
Then the door on the passenger side of the Mustang opened. And this woman stepped out. And we stopped arguing. For a moment. She was a really good looking woman. Really hot. Traffic stopper. And she was with this guy? My (unproven) theory was that the guy is a cousin who had come to visit Toronto and she has to show him around.
Anyways, now that the hot woman is on the scene, the Mustang dude decided he had to appear macho. So he stepped forward, clenched his fist, extended a finger out and yelled "Ya, so F*** you!", and repeated the action for good measure.
Except, the finger he extended was his index finger.
Shuaib looked at me, pointed with his index finger, and uttered "F*** you????" I pointed back at him. And we both started to laugh. The guy now appeared completely puzzled, so he "pointed" at us again and swore. And we burst out laughing again. And then his cousin/girlfriend/hot lady joined in! She didn't want to, she was trying to stop herself, but it was funny! And the more she tried to stop, the more she burst out laughing.
Oh it was bad for him. I almost fell sorry for the guy. We were still laughing as we headed back to our car and drove off.
Moral of the story: If you are new to Canada and want to swear, learn the gesture first. Not to mention it's rude.
