Going out and having fun at clubs is a lifestyle choice I guess. Someone once said “I love the privacy of crowds,” or something like that. So when I go out and party and try to look fab, it’s for me and not for anyone else. Yes, there was a time, about a decade ago when I would go “to see and be seen”, but I have out grown that I think, and I just want to have fun. Some people go to movies, some go to coffee shops, some read a book, I go out.
Unfortunately, there are perils to partying. One that I particularly hate is being groped. It’s happened a few times before, and you’d think I would have learned what to do, but apparently I have not.
Last Friday, I was out celebrating a friend’s birthday. I had my party on and having an awesome time just dancing around as per usual. At some point, after one too many glasses of wine, I eventually had to go to the ladies. The place was crowded, but I’ve maneuvered through worse traffic. Then, there was a hand on my ass, and fingers creeping up on the edge off my particularly short skirt. I instinctively reached out to stop the hand, and I turned and saw this man staring back at me like daring me to do something. I was stupefied. ANG KAPAL! There was a throng of people that basically carried me off the other direction. I went to the banyo and tried to collect my self. I still couldn’t believe that it happened so blatantly.
I headed back to our table. I was in a party with 3 “big” guy friends, 2 of which were fraternity brothers. One of them saw my face and instantly knew something was wrong, so I told him. He was ready to go to war, but I didn’t want to ruin the night naman. So I just made a show of kind of pointing to the general direction of the fungus-eater and let him see I was surrounded with guys who could literally tear him apart limb by limb. Next thing I knew he was gone, and probably moved to another table.
Look, I understand that some people are just creeps. What really pisses me off is the fact that I wasn’t able to do anything to him! Why didn’t I break his finger? Why didn’t I slap his face? Why didn’t I scream and raise holy hell at that club?!!!? Hopefully it won’t happen again. And I hope for all you ladies out there, who will have the unfortunate opportunity to be groped, you will have the good sense to at least throw a drink at the a-hole’s face.
OMG! This happened to me too… I was riding a jeep on my way home, tapos nakatulog ako sa byahe. Nagising na lang ako because I felt this dirty old man groping my boobs. Grabe! I was so shocked! I gave him a look, dun lang nya tinanggal yung kamay nya… Kami na lang palang 2 yung nasa loob ng jeep plus yung driver. Sa sobrang takot ko, bumaba nako kagad ng jeep. Baka ano pang mangyari sakin dun.
The next day, I told my classmate what happened to me. I happened to her din too. She was sleeping din daw kasi it was a very tiring day at school. Ai naku!!!
Siguro sinasamantala nila yung pagkakataon na nakakatulog yung mga pagod na estudyante para mang-manyak. Kainis! Sarap putulan ng kamay.
So girls, try not to sleep in public vehicles, hindi mo alam ugali ng makakatabi mo. And beware of those guys with jackets or big backpacks infront of them. They use that to cover whatever they are doing.
OMG!!! perve talaga yun!!! shucks! Kaya minsan nakakatakot magpuv kasi may mga ganyang tao. Kahit sa malls meron eh. happened to me in Alimall when I was like 12 years old.
