I stopped at the gas station this morning to top off my tank and get some coffee.

Let me back up and explain what I decided to wear today - this will make sense shortly. It is getting cooler in GA, so I put on a cute sweater-type dress that is gray with a black overlay (looks like a long sweater in front). It comes to right above my knee. Along with that I have on black tights and knee-high boots.

Pretty cute and not at all slutty. AT ALL.

So, back to the gas station.

I pull next to a pump and get out of the car. There is a fella at the same pump on the other side. I hear him mumble something but I think he is talking to someone in the car or, possibly, on the phone so I ignore him.

I start pumping gas and lean into the car to get my wallet so I can run in and get my coffee. I hear dude say something about "... in that dress." Again. I think he is talking to someone else, so I mosey my way into the store.

As I am heading back to my car, I notice he is still lolly-gagging around and using the windshield solution to wash his windows. OK... no problem.

I grab the gas nozzle and begin to replace it. THEN I hear him say - loud - "I wonder if she opens her legs, too". At that point I could tell all of these mumblings were aimed at me. I have never gotten in my car so fast.

It really sketched me out. I'm not used to gross men saying nasty things. I can handle compliments, but this guy was gross. I got that vibe from him at the get-go. He also had on some sort of reflective vest, so he works in the public. Can you imagine what he says about women that CAN'T hear him.

Ugh. Gross.

You got hit on by a creeper. Ewww! giggling Poor thing. I wish you had heard him loud and clear so you could've at least shot him a dirty look.

I bet you looked cute tho'. The outfit sounds adorable.

How's the job?

I told Pooldad this story and thinks that you should have mentioned your cop husband to the creep.

It may have been a creep and a creepy remark, but hey!

I have so many thoughts NOW about what I could have/should have said. At the time, though, I just wanted to bail. This is one of those times that I wish I didn't run from confrontation! LOL
