Don’t Mess With The DJ

I’m a female nightclub DJ, and was doing a gig in a bar in Adams Morgan when an older guy came into the DJ booth (it’s isolated from the rest of the club – you basically have to be right next to it to see who is in there). The guy started bragging that he owns a bunch of clubs in DC, and telling me they’re always looking for “hot female DJs” to spin parties, blah blah blah. He was really creepy, and the whole time he was talking, he was literally inching toward me, until he was right up in my grill.

I (politely) asked if he could take a few steps back and give me room while I worked. Apparently that was offensive, cause he said, “Fine, f*ck you then” and turned to leave, slapping my butt on the way out.

I totally lost it. I screamed “OH NO YOU F*CKING DID NOT JUST TOUCH MY BODY! How dare you, you disgusting PIG! Don’t EVER touch my body like that again, you get me?” He just looked at me like I’d punched him in the face, then skulked off.

Needless to say, I won’t be working in any of his clubs…

    I doubt he has any! I bet he’s a typical, lame harasser who was trying to holla. You handled yourself well. Glad you got loud and called attention to his crap.

  2. Yeah, I hope he doesn’t own any clubs. Did he tell his name or mention any clubs by name? Cuz we’d know where *not* to go then…

  3. Does the bouncer in the place have your back? I would have gotten him too.
