Heya everyone, long time no post!
Something annoying happened yesterday.Warning: Rant. Long. For pictures scroll down.
I was supposed to meet a friend of mine at a tram station, but she called me about 4(!) minutes before it was supposed to arrive at my station. I still had to GET to the ruddy station then.
When I got there, I was hit on by this complete stranger who greeted me by:
- saying hello (which is allright),
- shaking my hand (which is fine, really)
- kissing me on my cheek (okay, bordering on uncomfortable) and
- kissing me twice more (which might be customary in a Dutch greeting) but inching closer to my mouth with every *...* kiss! -_-;
I told myself it was nothing and that he was harmless. Then he proceeded with asking me questions about what my name was (I told him Alex, which isn't a complete
lie), where I lived and what I was going to do, to which I produced very vague aswers. We also spoke about some random things like religion and belief in god (I don't) and then asked me if he 'could get to know me a little better'. I bluntly told him 'no, I don't make a habit of handing out my information to complete strangers'. After that he said goodbye, again kissing me. The idiot.
I just got on the tram afterwards, and apparently missed my friend completely. Since I couldn't get into the club where we were supposed to go without her (and I don't have a mobile phone) I waited for about 20 minutes, then concluded that she really went without me, bought a ticket and decided whether to take the tram or bus home.
During all this, I was not harrassed again by complete strangers, I only was greeted by catcalls, whistles and the occasional calls of 'hey babe' and 'honey, what yer doin' (<=Dutch, translated).
Okay, it is nice to be appreciated for what you look like, but come on!
Brown, baggy pants+ Allstars+ plain black tank=> does not equal half-naked, outrageous outfit! (though my Allstars are really cool, and my grand arse does look good in those pants ;P)
But anyway, I got home safely and early. So I took the time to take some piccies. If interested, click lj-cut.
