So many times I’ve avoided events in the city after dark because I’m worried about how I’ll get home safely.
The following is just one example.
I encountered the absolute scummiest people on the train just now.
They were loud, obnoxious and played their music loudly for most of the train ride.
I ignored them for the entire trip then when I get up to leave one follows me to the door of the train and says (in the creepiest voice imaginable) “You’re pretty.”
*I shudder internally* “Thank you.”
“Can I have your number?”
*I throw up in my mouth* “Not this time, sorry”
“Do you have a boyfriend?”
“Yes, I do.” *I lie*
“Does he treat you right?”
“Yep, so far, do good” *I lie again*
*omg train doors, open already*
“Thank you again, you’re too kind”
*RUN AWAY RUN AWAY*
*The doors finally open, I’m free, walks quickly off the train and out of sight*
