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.
