Oh, That’s Interesting…

In a post that explains how whereas getting hit on in New York is pretty routine, getting hit on in San Francisco is a whole ‘nother story, Leah relates the story of some random sketchy dude (not pictured) hitting on her on Muni the other day:

I WAS SITTING ON THE 33 BUS HEADING TOWARD CASTRO STREET TO TRANSFER TO THE 24. I GET OUT MY PHONE TO TEXT INDIA, AND THE GUY SITTING TWO SEATS DOWN POKES ME ON THE ARM, AND I’M IMMEDIATELY THROWN OFF BECAUSE PEOPLE DON’T TOUCH YOU IN NEW YORK. I LOOK OVER, AND HE HAS HIS PHONE OUT, AND HE’S LIKE “OH, THAT’S INTERESTING. WE HAVE THE SAME PHONE.”

    for a city that prides itself as outgoing, sexually liberated, and progressive…the hetero-dating scene is abysmal. it’s gals like these that make straight dudes think twice about even saying “hello”…get over yourself and just be straight-up…if you’re not interested say so, if there’s a chance, give the guy a fucking break…geeez.


  2. Maybe it’s a generational thing.

    Seriously, if a stranger, anyone, touches me at first meeting, man or woman, I back the hell off as if touched by a plague victim.

  3. SCUM Says:

    Go back to N.Y. you stuck up bitch. That being said, any stranger touches me might get a finger broken.

  4. thegrinch Says:

    Why the yelling about it?

      Also, as for this:

      “New York: 1. getting winked at on the PATH. 2. someone shouting “HEY, BEAUTIFUL” 3. someone mumbling “oh, daaaamn” at me even when I’m wearing unattractive clothing

      She’s obviously never walked down Mission Street.

    I am specifically sketchy.

  6. right Says:

    Um, if you think that was getting hit on, maybe you need to get out more.

  7. olu Says:

    I’m missing something. except for the contact (not a good idea to touch people you don’t know), it’s a pretty standard attempt to meet someone. are the catcalls supposed to be better than that?

  8. Hubert Says:

    HOLY SHIT! what a great story!!! Please do a follow up on this poor girls *shitty life!!!

    riding the bus = shitty life

  9. Heezy Says:

    this entire article seems like somebody trying to turn a nerdy and socially awkward dude into a villain

    poor guy was probably some software nerd that just moved here from san jose and has absolutely no idea how to talk to people correctly

    Go back to N.Y. you stuck up bitch.

    How is this “getting hit on”. That’s a pretty simple piece of social interaction. If that qualifies as creepiness, then the world is truly doomed.

    Seriously, take a fucking proverbial chill pill, girl.

    • Herr Doktor Professor Deth Vegetable Says:

      After reading the expanded account, I withdraw my comment. Obviously counts as getting hit on.

      The whole “watching for two blocks” thing is a bit creepy, too.

    • Eon Says:

      The world is truly doomed, but it has nothing to do with uptight Muni passengers.


      • Tell me more, oh prophet! Does it have anything to do with creepy, lonely guys without social skills who hit on girls in the Castro, because the competition there is less intimidating?

        (BTW, I’m not completely unsympathetic to the creepy guy’s plight — Leah would be totally babe-a-licious if she weren’t edging so close to my grand-daughter territory. Just sayin’ — in a creepy way.)

  12. Caitlin Says:

    I have had basically all of these variations of interactions with strangers in San Francisco and in New York.

  13. Stuart Says:

    What an evil, evil man. Obviously this woman is a queen. In NY they yell at you. In SF… Tea sets.

  14. MrZebraMan Says:

    This post was retarded.

    Did she call the Waaambulance?
