HOT and BOTHERED in the OC

I'm sitting at a stoplight in my car on Pacific Coast Highway, on the way to the doctor's office today. Outside my window, I see a cute couple, early 20's guy and gal walking down the street. The girl is wearing a jean skirt and flip flops (this was two minutes from the beach). How sweet. Two other men walking by approach them and pass. These men are in their late fifties. White hair.

One of them does a double-take and I watch his eyes go right down to her ass. Then he turns back and tells his friend, they both stop and turn fully around, and start hitting each other, nodding their heads, making snide remarks and laughing. You know, as if they were a couple of horny, misogynistic teenagers.

At least the girl (and her boyfriend) were turned the other way and didn't notice them. But I did. And I thought, "Don't they have daughters? Unacceptable!!"
