Followed Up My Block

I was walking home around 2 PM when a guy started following me. I slowed down to see if he would pass me, and he came up next to me and starting hitting on me. He kept asking my name. I kept looking straight ahead and saying that I wasn’t interested in talking to him. Finally he turned (after saying “nice to meet you” and asking my name for the fifth time) and walked back where he’d come from; he’d gone out of his way to follow me up my block. One of my neighbors was outside washing his car and gave him the evil eye as he was walking away. Hopefully I’ll never see him around again…

    These men do not take “no” for an answer!

    At least your neighbor had your back in some way.

  2. I know that you posted this a year ago, but I can’t help by reply: Next time some creep asks your name, tell him “Hester SwampCrotch.” See if he stays around.
