So the metro was a disaster today and I was an hour late to work – I work in Rosslyn, so I had to get off at farragut north and walk to farragut west. As I walk into the station there is a newspaper guy passing out papers. He corners me and asked if I “wanted to have relations.” I was really freaked out and told him to get out of my way before I called the police and he just stood there. I quickly moved to the left and ran away. I was really freaked out, but more upset that all the people walking by who turned and witnessed me almost getting assaulted in the middle of the day didn’t even help me out.
