A couple of weekends ago I went to Arundel Mills alone to pick up a couple of things. I was approaching my car to get in to leave when I heard a voice behind me say “Hey, beautiful”. I turned around to see a black SUV with two men inside. The driver was the one who had addressed me. The SUV was blocking my car from backing out of my space, so I couldn’t just leave.
I turned and the man started asking me if he could have my number to call me sometime. I politely explained that I am married and hoped that would be the end of it (it never is!). He then proceeded to ask me if I would go to happy hour with him and his friend. (Sounds like a really great, safe idea, right? Ugh.) Again, I politely told him that I would not jeopardize my marriage under any circumstances. He kept trying.
