Leering at the grocery store

Just when I thought I could go for a period without being harassed…

I went to the grocery store this evening, and as I went to grab a cart outside I saw two guys standing near a cab talking. The guys stop talking and start staring and grinning at me. It was annoying.

“Do you see me smiling?” I said. “I repeat, do you see me smiling? Stop staring…that’s ignorant!”

I saw them both jump into the cab and thought I was through with them. WRONG!

As I was browsing the aisles, I saw one of them in the store! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?! This guy was telling some other guy, “Man, what did she have to get all excited for?” When this guy made eye contact with me I sneered. He does the same. A few seconds ago you had no problem grinning like a buffoon at me, so now you want to act offended? And it pissed me off that this guy was telling his friend about me as if I were the one causing problems. What a loser!

I ducked into another aisle, and luckily that was the last time I’d see him, phew.

I wish I had taken my phone out to catch a photo of this creep (and the first creep that was with him when he was outside near the cab), but I had my hands full at that moment.

Can’t even do some grocery shopping without dealing with these idiots. Damn!
