As I went about exchanging, facing and displaying product I encountered maintenance workers, one of which kept whispering inappropriate comments towards me. The first couple I ignored and let slide but as they continued it pissed me off.
I confronted him in a quiet vocal, non politically correct way that he immediately understood. In reality I just wanted to punch him in the throat. If he was doing this to me he was probably doing it to other women and girls and that is not okay. I surprised myself standing up in this manner. I am proud that I channeled courage and confronted the asshole.
Did it ruin my day? Nah, despite the disgusting Neanderthal, the rain and intervals of torrential downpours, life felt balanced. I became aware of the old mindsets and behaviors that were now gone. Released. New strengths and abilities now seem to fill that space. Seems like a good way to move forward.
