“Good morning, luscious!”

I was late to meet up for coffee with my friends and when I got close to the destination, two men hanging out outside a few doors down said, “Good morning, luscious.”

1. It was after 6 in the evening and dark out—“good morning”?!
2. I was running late and not in the mood to be talked to like a piece of meat.

I said “I’m not your fucking luscious!” and it shut them up. The last thing I want or need when I’ve got other things on my mind is lame ass men treating me like an object.
