“I just wanted to get to the gym.”

I was walking to the gym the other evening and the guy behind me was trying to get my attention by calling out “Hey boo. I just want to tell you look good.”  I just wanted to get to the gym in peace and was in no mood to deal with being catcalled. After I ignored him, he said,”Fine. Be that way.”
