The Second One this Month

September 10, 2007 at 8:16 pm 15 comments

This past Sunday was another Sabbath full of sin and iniquity, and no, THIS time, I was not to blame.   I boarded the Red Line at Grand en route to church clear up at Northwestern University.  At some point between Addison (Wrigley Field) and Granville (where sickos apparently live), I looked up and caught the eye of a creepy-looking man facing me.  He gave me a look–the look that creepy men give women…  I immediately averted my eyes and pretended that I was REALLY interested in my ipod.   

I could feel that his gaze was still upon me, and when I looked up, there he was, unzipped, out in the open, and having a good old time… all at my expense. 

I gasped and turned around, finding two nicely dressed girls trying to figure out why I am all of a sudden staring at them.  After 10 seconds of my incoherent babble, the brown-haired girl saw it and gasped and turned as well.  I got up and moved to a seat that I couldn’t see him.  The blonde girl said a similar experience happened to her at 2 am when she first moved here. The brunette said, “But you’d expect that kind of thing at 2am.  This is Sunday Morning.  GOD’S DAY!!!  People are in church right now!!!”  I told her that I was on my way, in fact.  “Say a few extra prayers today,” she advised.   

And then she turned to her friend and said, “You know, this is the SECOND &#%!$  that I haven’t wanted to see this month.”

    I just got off the phone with my friend, a criminal defense attorney. I proclaimed that i want a constitutional ammendment that gives women the right to mace men who are fondling themselves in public.

    This reminds me of Phyllis of The Office getting flashed in the parking lot.

    Are you telling me that you couldn’t mace someone who exposed themself? Especially when they started to engage the exposed *&$#? Doesn’t that cover some kind of assault?

    Ewww! One summer in Provo (yes, even sickos live in Provo) we had problem with a guy who would streak across our lawn. The police didn’t do anything. Then one night, I was sitting in my front yard at the streaker walked by and serviced himself on the sidewalk. I didn’t have any mace but I did yell and tell him to take care of his needs at home instead of on my lawn. Never saw him again but I did purchase some pepper spray.

    This is *possibly* worse than shigella in the Peruvian jungle.

    It DID make me sick to my stomach, Mari.

    I thought that this kind of behavior was only exhibited by men who were former child stars, but I can’t say I remember seeing him on any 80’s sitcoms…

    In an email from my friend:

    So, I just told your story to a woman in my office and she said that she’s encountered this sort of nonsense several times in the city. She’s completely no-nonsense and suggested if it happens again you take a picture on your phone and send it to the cops or post a blog on the following site:

    Wow – you got to meet Bill Clinton in person!!!

    Ew- that’s just gross. Maybe you will be switching wards to a family one as to not travel so far soon. I’m glad you didn’t take a picture for the “A pictures worth a thousand words #3”

    Lemare, it wasnt my brother again was it?

  • 11. Massimo  |  September 11, 2007 at 7:07 pm

    LeMare, perhaps it was former third-grade class president Mark Perper.

    […] the weekend, I too had a disturbing encounter, though it certainly had nothing on LeMare’s encounter with lewdness on the Red Line. Mine involved a mom on a mission to prevent her daughter from one of life’s great […]

    Is “Perper” a REAL last name???

  • 14. Massimo  |  September 11, 2007 at 11:06 pm

    Yes. And surely, LeMare, you noticed the “Golden Girls” reference.

  • 15. lemare  |  September 11, 2007 at 11:13 pm

    I TOTALLY MISSED the Golden Girls reference. My head is hung in shame.
