“Damn, girl, I’d like to see you in nothing BUT those heels.”

I was walking from my car to the mall for an interview, so obviously I’m dressed nicely with heels and appropriate clothing. As I’m walking this car comes up behind me and I hear this man say, “Damn, girl, I’d like to see you in nothing BUT those heels.” I ignored him and kept walking. The car sped up to me and again I heard, “I don’t think you heard me, I want you in nothing BUT those heels, girl.” I continued to ignore him and walked into the mall. It was an inward struggle for me not to turn around and flip him off, but I didn’t know how he would react to that. If he would make another rude comment, if he would get angry and come after me. There’s so many ways that guys can react, so I felt that I could only safely ignore him.
