And YOU sound like an ASSHOLE tonight!

I left work Sunday afternoon at 5 and was heading down Charles Street to the T. I passed the Beacon Hill Pub and an elder gentleman smoking outside who greeted me with a "hello." I responded as cordially, and sure enough after passing him, he comments, "You look glorious tonight." I step off the curb to cross the street, but pause to reach for my phone. The man has already moved on to harassing the female passerby behind me who is politely declining his request for conversation. He exclaims, "You owe me a few lines!" She again declines his requests to which he replies, "Don't yell at me, yell at this woman!" pointing to me as I snap his picture.

Sir, nobody OWES you anything, but we DESERVE to be left alone!
