Working the Corner

I wish I had known about HollaBackBoston just a few hours earlier because I would have gotten a picture of this.

I was standing at the NE corner of Commonwealth and Babcock last evening at 6:10 PM when I saw two men in a car stop at the light on Commonwealth, waiting for it to turn green. It was hard not to notice them since there was
music blaring out their window. I then followed their eyes to see that there was a woman walking in the opposite direction from where they were heading on my side of the
sidewalk. She was talking on her cell phone, minding her own business, when the one nearest us leaned out the window and yelled out, "Girl, you lookin' fine!" She
ignored him and looked embarrassed that the person on the other end of the line might have heard him. She kept walking on and these guys stared at her for a little bit,
then turned their attention to a group of high school students who were waiting to cross the street. Thankfully the light turned green before they could harass anyone
