Rub my lower back in an inappropriate way & call me "doll", I probably won't stop you!

OKAY! This super creepy lighting fella that I do business with often, touched me in a slimy way today! He is making a chandelier for our client and I show up at his shop to check on the progress a few times a week. Most of the time it seems like he has Alzheimer's, as he never seems to be able to place me and I spend too much time explaining who I am and that I was here 2 days ago as well. When we said our goodbyes this afternoon, he rubbed my lower back A LOT with a goofy look on his face and said "Bye Doll!" - I have always figured in such a situation I would react differently...maybe a slap or a scolding or something to let the offender know that sexual harassment is weird and wrong. Well, I didn't! I totally TOOK IT! I just walked out feeling violated. Anyways, this post is to let you know that you can probably try the same thing, and I will most likely just smile and walk away! Gross!

that's the "seduction" method sexual predators use to find out how far they can go with their victims...expect tune in tokyo on the next visit

Gross!If it makes you feel any better, the cable guy came yesterday and he didn't look at my face once- IF you know what I mean. SO creeped/grossed out and I didn't say anything.
