Location: G St. NW between 14th and 15th
Time: Morning Rush Hour (5am-9:30am)
The shoe shiner on G St. is an unpleasant guy who can’t control himself. Today, I was in slacks and a sweater and he said, “You dropped something.” I said, “Where?” (turns out I didn’t drop anything). He said, “Let me pick it up for you,” while leering. I told him “Fuck you,” and called the cops. That’ll teach him not to harass women on their way to work.
