How dare you talk to me like that?

New Submission from Anonymous:


I was in Highbury Fields in Islington waiting to go running. Just waiting on my own for the rest of the running group to arrive. Guy walks past with headphones on and starts saying some explicit stuff about me what he’d like to do. I look up and he’s looking right at me and then carries on walking. I called after him ‘are you talking to me’? He turns and smiling says “I can’t hear you” and just turns away.

Made me feel really exposed. Also really angry, like how dare you talk to me like that? Not the first time something like this has happened to me but first time in a long while that it was so blatant and so obviously done to make me feel uncomfortable.
