What The Hell is Going On?

I just got home, fired up the TV to watch a bit of MLB Network when this guy right outside my patio starts talking on the phone. I believe he is from the Middle East because he was not speaking Spanish. About 3 minutes into his conversation he gets all fired up and starts talking louder. I allow this to continue for about 3 or 4 more minutes and then something snapped in me. I walked to my door, went outside to simply ask him to either pipe down or move the conversation somewhere else. He sees me and the following interaction ensues:

Him: "What are you looking at, Friend?"

Me: "I was just going to ask you if you could go somewhere, other then right outside my window, and talk on the phone."

Him: "This is a free country! I can talk where I want!"

Me: assuming a shocked look on my face " Are you really going to go there with me because you don't want to."

Him: Looking at me.

Me: Looking at him.

Him: Turns and walks away.

Now I hope I just didn't start something long term, my lease doesn't end until February.

LOL! He really used the "it's a free country defense?" Was he ten? Maybe you should press an air horn for 4 solid minutes outside his window. After all, it is a free country.
