Last week I was at Eastern Market Metro with a friend. She was adding money to her Smart Trip card and I was standing next to her. An older man comes right up behind us, stands really close, and starts saying, “hey pretty ladies, you all look very nice.” My friend turns around and says, “Can I help you?” When he didn’t say anything back, she said, “Can you just leave us alone so I can add money to my card?” He says, “OK” walks off and leaves us alone.
