I was walking along Columbia Rd while trying to find a cab home, when I saw a group of guys on the sidewalk ahead. As I got closer, I heard them talking about cigarettes. One of them said “yeah man, where’s my pack? Hold on a sec.” He then turned to me and said “hey baby girl, I’m gonna fuck the shit out of ya.” I turned and said “Would you talk to your mother like that? I don’t think so, so don’t fucking talk to me like that” and kept walking. As I walked off I could hear him yelling at me “You don’t know my momma, bitch! My momma’s a slut too, so I’ll tell her I’d fuck the shit out of her too.”
I’m used to the generic “hey baby, smile baby” etc, but this was a whole new level of terrible, and really ruined the end of an otherwise pleasant evening.
