The muggers

Alo, Savyasachi and I were out shopping for furniture, this and that. At one point, when I came out of a big department store, three black teenagers came up to me and said, "Mister, what time do you have?"

I said, "Four forty-five."

Then they came closer to me and said, "What we really want from you is the wristwatch, and not the time."

I got so furious! I pushed my elbows out, but I didn't touch anybody, and I screamed, "What!" When I screamed, all three disappeared. There were hundreds of people around at the time.
