Black eye for breakfast

From the Queens Gazette:

Police arrested a 47-year-old Queens man on August 4 after he punched a patron on line ahead of him at a Long Island City food cart.

Police said Joyce Wilson, 47, suddenly began shouting at the 61-year-old victim as they waited their turn at the cart at 23rd Street and 43rd Avenue.

Police sources said according to eyewitnesses, Wilson spewed profanities at the woman, then "hauled off and punched her in the face".

Wilson was charged with assault and resisting arrest.

Perhaps he was pissed off that his mother forced him go through life with a girl's name...

How "vibrant"! How "colorful"!
A snippet of street drama in our "bustling" 3rd world neighborhoods!

Not exactly a high class area like the Queens West sales agents are trying to promote.

If the food off the cart doesn't get to your stomach, some PO-ed New Yorker is bound to (literally) be in your face.

Well, my daddy left home when I was three
And he didn't leave much to Ma and me
Just this guitar
And an empty bottle of booze...
