Setiabudi – Verbal Harassment
A guy who called himself Ricky approached me at Setiabudi 1 and started chit-chat which then quickly turned sleazy. I was not engaging in conversation with him, but he was persistent and annoying. It might have been harmless enough the words he was saying, (calling me sexy and beautiful) but it made him a pest and the thoughts and intentions behind his words made me feel disgusting. He asked me to “make love to him” (after he had talked to me for a few minutes) and behaved offended when I told him no and walked away. I just wanted to sit on my own in peace for a few minutes in my lunch break but he ruined my experience. I should have been able to sit there without him harassing me, and I bet he tries this with other women frequently too, as he was very confident.
