Actually, I’ve never had a problem on busses. Other places on the other hand . . . ! :rolleyes:
I’m not sure if this guy was deranged. All I know was I was bicycling through Waikiki about 7:00 am after running an errand for a client (long story omitted) when a fellow asked me if I’d be willing to do something when I stopped to buy a newspaper. When I declined, he said, “I can satisfy you!” as I got on my bicycle and pedalled away. Half a block later, I came up with the perfect reply. I should have assumed my best British accent and said, “Sir, you do not have the capacity to satisfy me!” No, I didn’t turn around and deliver it.
Also, as a general hint to the male population, if you’ve followed a girl back to where she’s hanging out her laundry and she keeps telling you she doesn’t want company, leave her alone!!! There’s no way I was hanging out my underwear to dry in front of the guy who wasn’t getting the message (and no, he didn’t live there and he wasn’t visiting someone who did), so I pulled my laundry off the line and wound up hanging it up to dry later.
One final hint. If I smile at you and say, “Hello”, I’m not expressing a mad, undying passion for you, sexual or otherwise. I’m being polite. If you take it as the former, I may have to stop being the latter. Trust me, you wouldn’t like that.
