I was going to shop with my mom and my friend, but my mom’s car has a broken radio. I rushed back inside my house to get cds to play so I wouldn’t be bored. I have a handful of cds and I’m walking down the porch to get to my mom’s car and there he is. He’s looking at me, obviously not bothered that I’m rushing to get to my mom’s car, looking very uncomfortable. “Hey, cutie pie!” He keeps yelling and I look a few times, just weirded out. I start getting closer to the car when I hear him say, “F U too.” I’m only 15. I tell my friend about what happened and she said it might have been because of me looking older than I actually am. I told her that he shouldn’t have assumed my age. I also told her that it wasn’t okay and that I shouldn’t be embarrassed, but he should be. Calling women out on the street, making them feel unsafe and embarrassed, is NEVER okay.
