I was walking out of my house to go to work – it was early and the weekly trash collection was that day. As I turned onto the sidewalk from my walkway, the garbage truck pulled up, the man collecting my trash stepped off, and in a very casual way said to me, “I’ve always wanted to f*ck a woman with short hair.”
By the time I realized what he’d said, he was gone. Just like that. Needless to say, I just felt kinda icky for the rest of the day.
