Location: E4 bus stop at the Friendship Heights Metro Station
Time: Daytime (9:30am-3:30pm)
As I sat down on the bus, waiting for the driver to pull away from the stop, an older gentleman in his business suit came in. Though the bus was fairly empty, and he would have had no problems finding a seat nearby, he came and sat down next to me. Since he was a bigger man, my own personal space was invaded and he then started to lean over onto my side. Though I wasn’t directly looking at him, I could tell that he was staring at me, watching my every move.
