I was walking across the street from the Silver Spring metro near the Starbucks, looking for the bus stop I needed. As I was approaching the Starbucks, a young male shouted “Hi honey!” to me. I ignored it and pretended to be texting on my phone, so he kept on going and said, “What? I cant talk to you cause youre pretty?”. I kept on walking and ignoring him as he went on talking to his friend about me. After I passed him, he shouted “bye honey!” and then continued to talk to his friend about me.
