Ignoring them just does not work part I.

Ignoring them just does not seem to be working anymore. I’m listening to music and checking my email. I see a man out of the corner of my eye and hear him say, “Hola, mi amor.” I think to myself, “Eek,” and keep looking down. The man then walks up to me and puts out his hand to me as if to shake my hand, again says hello. I’m stunned that he somehow thinks this is a good way to approach a complete stranger. I look at his hand, which is dirty.  I recoil and scrunch up my face, say “I am NOT touching you.” He walks away and mutters about me being a broken whore. Right. I shout back, “It’s not my fault you’re creepy!”
