This morning this guy sidled up beside me right as I was reaching the top of the escalator leaving the metro station. Then he blatantly grabbed my ass. I shoved him to the other side of the escalator and he kind of tripped onto the concrete and then ran away. The idiots handing out the examiner and the express just said “oohhhhhh” like someone was getting sent to the principal’s office. I would have reported him but he had already run away. Must be his strategy to watch girls’ asses all the way to the top of the escalator and then grab them so he can run away quickly. Ridiculous.
