Followed on VT Ave

For the second time this month, a creepy European guy has followed me around VT ave, trying to solicit sex. The first time, he kept poking me in the arm with his business card. I got loud to call attention to us & went a whole other direction.

This time, I got loud again, & picked up my phone. I told him I was going to take his picture for the cops. He fell back. Or so I thought. When I turned the corner, there he was, behind me. I had to go hide with some folks who were smoking outside (and I’m asthmatic), while the guy pretended he had to go to the post office. Less than a minute later, he came out & went into another store closer to where I was standing. The smokers let me know when he wasn’t looking so I could scurry away.

Just in case, I also described him to my building’s security officer & informed her that he should not be allowed in. Ridiculous.

    Too bad you couldn’t take his business card and hand his contact information over to the police!

    I really doubt the cops would’ve given a d@mn.
