I’m from DC but went to Dewey beach with some friends. As we were walking to dinner, a guy walking the opposite direction came up to me, snarled really loudly and put his hands in front of my chest and made the motion like he was going to grab it. After I yelped in fear, I recovered and said, “Hey, that’s not funny, a–h–.” He told me to get a sense of humor and not be so uptight. I felt very violated.
