“The bouncer at the door just laughed.”

I was out on Halloween night at Grand Central with some friends. A middle aged man started following me through the dance floor asking me to dance. I refused politely but he grabbed my arm so he could continue trying to “persuade” me. I pulled free and waited for my friends by the door. On his way out to leave he stopped in front of me and started saying something I couldn’t understand, then when I looked down at my phone, he kissed me on the lips and ran out the door.

While I was standing there looking shocked and disgusted, the bouncer at the door just laughed and said “is that how you roll?”. To add insult to injury, on the way home a man passing me on the sidewalk asked: “Can I lick your pussy?”
