It’s not often that we see people behave so despicably towards others, but unfortunately, that’s what happened in San Diego when a group of four women harassed a hot dog vendor. The women were incensed that he was charging $7 for each hot dog, and they proceeded to berate him with foul language and taunts. The situation escalated when one of the women even spat on the vendor’s hot plate, contaminating the food he was selling.
The vendor in question is Andres Arguelles Alvarez, a Hispanic man who has been selling hot dogs on the streets of San Diego for a long time. Although he’s no stranger to dealing with difficult customers, these four women were particularly nasty. In the beginning, Alvarez tried to remain calm and asked them to leave him alone if they weren’t willing to pay for his food. But the situation quickly spiraled out of control when the women started handling his food without paying for it and making inappropriate comments.
“Can you move, please?” Álvarez asks, but the women laugh in his face.
“She’s not doing anything, to be honest,” one of the bullies responds, slurring her words as she speaks because she is likely intoxicated.
“We’re not doing anything,” another said.
“But what if we want another hot dog? Should we move? No, we should not! Should we move, sir? No, we should not!” she continues.
The video of the incident went viral on social media, sparking outrage and prompting an investigation into the women’s behavior. One of the women has been identified as a former student at Cal State San Marcos, and the university has launched a probe into her involvement in the incident.
Unfortunately, it’s unclear whether these women will ever face the consequences of their actions. While the investigation is ongoing, it’s unlikely that they’ll receive just punishment for what they did to the hot dog vendor.
Eyewitnesses have confirmed that Alvarez did nothing to provoke the women’s behavior and that they were simply looking for an excuse to cause trouble. Their entitlement and lack of respect for the hard-working vendor are a stark reminder of how far we still have to go in terms of treating each other with basic decency and respect.
The incident has sparked outrage on social media, with many people calling for the women to be held accountable for their actions. The fact that they were able to get away with harassing a man who was simply trying to make a living is unacceptable, and it’s important that we stand up against this kind of behavior.
In the end, it’s up to all of us to make sure that incidents like this don’t happen again. We need to hold each other accountable for our actions and treat each other with the respect and dignity that we all deserve. Hopefully, the investigation into this incident will lead to justice for the hot dog vendor and serve as a reminder that we all need to do better.
