Early Morning Groper

It’s early in the morning and I’m heading to work. As I go up the escalator at the Eastern Market metro a man says “good morning” to me and I say, “good morning” back. He then goes on to say, “I just want to tell you that you have the most beautiful ass I have ever seen.” I start walking up and he grabs me! I can’t believe it!! I just start walking faster and don’t turn around. When did good morning become an invitation for vulgar remarks and groping?

After this incident, I stopped responding to men when they say, “hi” or “good morning” on the street. Now, I get called a “bitch” for ignoring them.
