A Birthday Bust!

June 4th was my birthday. Around midnight, I was walking from the metro to my apartment after a night of dancing with some friends. A man, about 5’8 or 5’9 came up seemingly out of nowhere, with a cup in his hand. Because of the cup, I thought he wanted money, so I said: “I don’t have any cash.” He chuckled and said, “I don’t want cash,” upon which point he looked me up and down. I was seriously disgusted, and scared too. On my birthday!

    Sorry that that creep had to ruin the rest of your birthday. He’s a grade-A loser.
