Do you think this is appropriate?

I’ve been back in NYC for about 24 hours. Today I went to meet my friend for lunch, so I was loitering in Union Square, waiting for her to meet me, and this man decided he needed to talk to me. He said hi, and I might have half responded with a hi, but definitely not an inviting look of any kind. And his next line was “Do you have a man in your life?”

I was honestly shocked. And I’m old enough and teacher enough for my knee-jerk response to be, “Do you really think that’s appropriate?”

He asked if I’d rather he said how are you, and I vehemently agreed, yes, please. So he said, “fine, ok, since you said please. How are you?”

But he did not like my cold, “I’m fine, thanks.” So he proceeded to get very mad and walk in a circle around me while he shouted something about how men with big dicks shouldn’t talk to me because I’d just give them attitude.

Welcome back to America, I guess.

    Some people have #nofilter and they think they are being clever when they are not. Weird people are everywhere; it’s just in America we can understand what they are saying. There are times I’m SO glad my Thai isn’t as good as it could be. Sometimes it’s just better I didn’t know what they were shouting.
