I was walking up 23rd street approaching I st, outside the JBKO GW dorm and was passing by two young men. It was summer and I was in short shorts. One of them said something along the lines of, “Damn miss, if you don’t got a man, let me know!” I gave him a disgusted look and he said, “I was only joking!” I said, “You shouldn’t talk that way to women on the street.” He didn’t say anything else and I kept walking, fuming. I’m pretty proud of how I handled it.
