This happened over a year ago, but have never shared this. I want to share it now because it’s actually a positive experience that could have turned into something horribly wrong.
I was walking home during the day from the metro to my house, cup of coffee in hand (Columbia Heights area) as I was waiting to cross the street, I had a weird feeling about a younger boy to my right. I wasn’t sure why, but sometimes you just get THAT FEELING. I didn’t make eye contact with him, and didn’t want to, but I pulled out my phone to talk to my brother in case anything happened.
Sure enough, as I was coming closer to my house, he is following me and cat calling me. “Hey baby”, “Hey hottie”, etc. etc. I still have a bit of distance on him and I’m walking faster at this point, but am getting quite angry. I turn around to yell at him, and notice his dick is completely out of his pants, while he is holding it, swinging it around, smiling, and says “you like what you see?” Furious, I run over to him, and throw my cup of coffee in his face and scream “Get away from me you idiot!!” Which works and he runs off.
Note to idiots: Do not mess with women carrying coffee.
