So im waiting at the bus stop on Sunday to go downtown. I see this older man crossing the street towards me in a Shalwar Kamize. I acknowledge him and he sits a seat away from me. After a few seconds he acknowledges me back and says something in German. I reply “English?”.
He asks where im from and I tell him American. He tells me I’m beautiful a few times before asking if I liked him. Confused on how to reply to that, I shrug and say I dont know.
Then he makes his request clear asking if I like sex?
Im thinking oh boy here we go…
I didn’t respond so he continues. Do you like sex outside?I said no!
You don’t like sex outside? And proceeds to point to the park behind us. Only 2 or 5 minutes he adds, as if that was suposed to entice me to take him up on his offer.
I just ignored him
He asks if I have kids I say no. And adds you dont have kids, and you don’t like sex? Im not following his logic. Does the fact that I’m a single woman traveling alone mean that I’m open for sex with any random, or that I’m a prostitute?
Oh did I forget to mention that he asked me how much? As in how much it would cost him to get with me.
Then he starts with the are you from africa? I mean the fact that I consider myself an African American suggests that im of African descent. But I had to explain once again that my parents are american as are my grandparents and their parents.
I found out that he was Indian.
He noticed my tattoo. And asked if I liked music.
And somehow he ended up asking me about terrorists and the twin towers in NYC. I WASNT sure what exactly he was asking me at that point though. It seemed like a series of separate and seemingly unrelated questions.
Finally the bus came and I was hoping he didn’t try and sit near me.
I waited too late to try and snap a picture of him. But that’s him getting onto the elevator.
