I regret being so polite

I was walking home from the subway and a man was walking toward me, carrying two duffle bags, one on each shoulder. We were walking straight towards each other. I moved a little to my right to get out of his way but he didn’t move at all and one of his bags hit me in the chest. I reflexively said, “Sorry!” He turned around and said, “What about EXCUSE ME, you little whore??” And then I turned around (and I regret being so polite) and said, “I SAID SORRY!!” And then another man on the street called me a “white bitch.”
