Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Hollas are everywhere. This one comes to us from the Improper Bostonian:

To the guy at Embassy: You're the reason I never go to clubs. My girlfriends and I were dancing in a circle off to the side of the dance floor. We were innocently shaking what our mommas gave us, singing along to Kelly Clarkson's "Walk Away" and generally enjoying a girls' night out. Seeing as we made up the majority of the heterosexual female population that night, you homed in on us. You came up behind my friend, and she indulged you for a bit, then gave us a sign and we helped her escape. But you wouldn't be deterred. You make your way around the circle and snuck up behind me. I moved away, but being the persistent pest you are, you followed. I moved again and you stayed a few steps behind, remaining there for a good portion of the night, bouncing awkwardly to the music and staring hungrily at our circle. Maybe if you'd asked before you grabbed us from behind, you would have had a chance. You could also try being less creepy in general. Thanks a bunch.
