So this is a usual thing for me. I walk to school at least 3 days out of the 5 day week wearing headphones of course to avoid the harassers.
I would say on a consistent basis, I’m harassed almost every time I walk to school, and even with headphones in, men still find it their obligation to smooch, honk horns or pull over on the side for me to jump in their car. (As if I would be so naive!) But this one particular morning these set of construction workers thought it was appropriate to grab me when I didn’t respond to their catcalls.
THEM: “This b#!%$ acting like she can’t hear us!”
ME: *continues to walk with my headphones blatantly ignoring them*
THEM: “Alright then carry ya a$$!”
ME: *walks around the curve STILL blatantly ignoring them*
Then suddenly, one of them grabs me and pulls me in. I’m shocked because I never had anything like this happen to me before. I quickly pulled back and flipped them off and kept it moving.
I was just amazed at the audacity of some people.
