My mother and I (age 16) were briefly followed by a man (possibly in his 50’s). As we passed by him he said, “I let you go in front of me so that I can watch you from behind. Oh I’m sorry, that was a compliment, you should take it as one.”
When he said this my heart started pounding, I felt scared, and I was embarrassed. It felt disgusting. Luckily, I had my mother with me and she calmly blew him off. I was mainly afraid that he would end up following us for a long period of time.
