Remarks in NJ Walmart

I was walking behind an older (mid-60s) white couple who was walking quite slowly and taking up the whole aisle when they stopped and moved to the side. As I passed them, the woman said in a loud obnoxious voice, "she could at least have said thank you!"

I stopped and turned around (which caught them by surprise) and said, "I didn't ask you for anything!" The man then told me to "go back to Japan" to which I angrily shouted "I'm from here, you idiot!"
