I was walking to barometre with a few friends around 11 or 12 at night on a weekend when I noticed a guy standing about 20 meters up, on the right side of the sidewalk, staring at us but with his hands at an awkward angle near his crotch. my friends didn’t notice and kept walking, but i made eye contact with the guy and kept it, looking down once as we got close because his penis was visible. I looked back at him and he put it away, but then followed close behind us. When we sat down outside barometre, we all noticed him across the street masturbating and staring, and we complained to the bar staff. he ran away, but the bar stuff didn’t care and decided not to do anything.
if we hadn’t been in a big group near a restaurant wtf would this guy have done? why the need to wave your penis in public? wonder if the sick fuck expected we’d just say, “smallah, ayrak 7elw. yalla nshrub shi?”
i was so mad afterwards, I kept thinking how I should’ve slapped him and started screaming when we were walking by. or physically assaulted him when he was across the street in full view. or punched him. or, or, or…. i ended up obssessing about what I should have done the entire weekend..
