I was standing in his way, so he hit me.

I was standing in front of Roche Bros. supermarket in West Roxbury, talking with Kevin McCrea after having signed his nomination papers to get him on the ballot to run for Mayor of Boston.

All of a sudden I was hit in the right ankle by the first cart in a line of shopping carts, being pushed towards me by a 115 year old 6 ft tall cart wrangler.

"Hey!" I yelled. "Watch where you are going."

"You're in the way." he replied.

I said, "No, you need to stop the carriages and ask me to get out of the way."

At this point Kevin McCrea says, "Can't we all just get along?"


  1. Was he 115yrs old or 11 or 15? The cart wrangler that is

  2. You got me on that one. He was at least over 75, I exaggerated for effect.
