AW, HELL NO!

I was headed to the library when a red car, which had the most loud and obnoxious music coming from it, made a left turn really fast from 18th onto Adams. The driver yells something that sounded like “Yo, beautiful!” at me. I wasn’t in the mood. I rolled my eyes.

I was going to continue walking, when I just got a funny feeling. My feeling was right.

“AW, HELL NO!” I yelled, when I saw this chump reverse his car really fast towards me. He stops and tries to talk to me. I was shaken and unnerved, but I wasn’t going to have it!

“If you don’t leave me alone, I’m calling the police,” I said. I fished in my purse trying to find my phone so I could take his photo.

“Man, what did I do?” he says.

“You catcall me then back your car up next to me like that?! Come on, now!” I said. “If you don’t leave me alone, I’m calling the police!”

“Aw, a’ight,” he says with an attitude, and speeds off in the original direction.

While I didn’t get his photo, I did get his license plate. There was a sideways HD on the left side of the license plate. Is that a special designation or something? Because if it is and this is some type of government-issued car, I will report this guy for using that vehicle to harass me. Like I said, I’m not having it!

This happened one block from a school too, and a few minutes before school let out. I’m glad the kids weren’t around when this happened!
