Indirect Speech (A bad day) - Алеша vs Maksim

По цепочке по 1-2 предложения перепишите текст, трансформировав прямую речь в косвенную.

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

“Well, whatcha gonna do about it?” he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

“Come on, man,” the biker says, “I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand to see a man crying.”

“This is the worst day of my life,” I say. “I'm a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my old lady in bed with the gardener and then my dog bit me.”

“So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve; then you, you jack-ass, show up and drink the whole thing! But enough about me, how's your day going?”

I burst into tears, and he asks menacingly what I'm going to do about it.

He says to me that he doesn't think that I would cry and that he can`t stand to see a crying man.

I shared with him that was the worst day of my life, and I was a complete failure.
