I was on my way TO AN EXAM and two construction workers saw me and said to each other, "look at this one." They then proceeded to say things to each other like "sheesh" and "goddamn." Super unpleasant way to start my day and my exam.
Everywhere I go on campus I encounter construction workers looking me up and down or creepily saying "hello" in a very threatening way. It would be incredible to not feel like I am constantly being stared at and scrutinized on my way into work. I feel violated just walking around on a daily basis!!! Ridiculous.
I was buying a bottle of tequila and the old man in front of me in line decided it would be appropriate to turn around and inform me, "That'll make your clothes fall off." What a loaded, inappropriate, demeaning thing to say. Can't imagine he EVER would have said that to a man...
