When’s your baby due, buddy?

First of all, I’m a big guy. Generally, I don’t get bothered on the street other than the occasional “get off the phone.” But this time was different, I was crossing the street from my office to get something out of my car.

While I was waiting to cross the street, a green pickup truck drove by and the creepy driver shouts “when’s your baby due, buddy?” I was really pissed off by this. I really wanted to take the cigar in his hand and do something to him with it…but he drove off too fast. I did get his license number and called the Arlington County PD, and they said they’d keep an eye out, but that they couldn’t really do anything.

I just felt really kind of humiliated for the next few hours and I wished I had called the asshole out or at least told him to F*** off. But I didn’t.

    Man, this cigar-smoking loser sounds like a chump! Sorry you had to deal with that.

    There seem to be quite a few stories from Arlington here lately. Just goes to show that one’s no safer in the suburbs than they are in the city when it comes to harassment!
