I asked if they thought they were big trying to scare a woman walking alone

New Submission from Tam

Two young men walked towards me aggressively as I walked alone on Wood Green High Street. One kicked a bag of rubbish at me. I stopped and asked if they thought they were big trying to scare a woman walking alone, and that they should be ashamed, especially as it was International Women’s Day. One came towards me arms outstretched and said ‘Sorry, let me give you a hug’. I said, that’s not happening’ and walked on. He then shouted ‘stupid bitch’ at me as I walked away. I was concerned they’d follow me as I turned off the high street to get home. Thankfully they didn’t but I was jumpy (more even than usual), until I got inside my house.
