I submitted “It is NOT a compliment” and another story. It’s been a week since my move and it feels good to be able to walk from home to the Metro and back without dummies catcalling at me. I love my new neighborhood.
I was coming home from karaoke, and wanted to grab a snack from CVS before going home. As I waited for the light to change, some cornball on a bike who was dressed like Lance Armstrong yelled “Mmm…gorgeous!” at me. I didn’t know how to react. All I could muster was an “I moved to the suburbs to escape that nonsense” and shook my head. Unlike in my old neighborhood where a good chunk of the harassers I dealt with were physically threatening, I felt no threat with this guy. It was just so annoying to be coming from a good time at karaoke, just to be reduced to a piece of meat by some idiot. Is there any true escape from this?
Location: Across from the CVS at Court House Metro (Arlington)
