I live right up the street, where the harassment occurred in front a pawn shop. I had headphones in at the time, but this man was walking awkwardly close to me and said ” nice legs” I didn’t know what he had said, so I took out one ear bud and said to him, “huh, I’m sorry what did you say? “… so he repeated it and said again, ” you have some nice legs”. It wasn’t weird to me because I usually get harassed in the street. Plus, I’m petite and 4’11 so.. people think I’m younger than I actually am.
