I was walking my dog near my home, and two teenage boys in an SUV whistled and yelled at me as they drove past. My jaw dropped, but as soon as they passed me, they got stuck behind a transit bus that was parked a stop, waiting for someone to load their bike. In that time, I was able to walk down the sidewalk towards them and reprimand them harshly while they couldn’t move. They looked incredibly scared/embarrassed. I told them they should never speak to women that way, that it is disrespectful.

    Way to go, most of these idoits don’t want to be confronted. This is the way to handle it, call em out and tell em what jerks they really are. Good Job!
