Well, this happened while i was still a university student. I took a service to go back home from university. A colleague was accompanying me. The driver dropped her on our way and then asked if he can drive up few meters to pick a lady who had called and asked him to take her, as a “taxi”, to Kesrwan. I said ok, no problem if it’s for few minutes.
So the driver went up, parked in front of a building and pretended that he was calling the woman.However, after few minutes he changed the parking spot (given that there was a grocery shop in the building where he had first parked) and parked next to a high concrete plants pot.There he changed his seat and moved to the one that is next to the driver.
At this moment, i noticed that his penis was out. So i said ok, u know what? i will leave now, seems the woman is not coming!!! (i remained somehow calm and haven’t overreacted because i had read about exhibitionists and their expectations).
Though he directly offered to drive me home, i left the car and continued walking until i reached my friend’s place and told her about what happened to me.
I was so shocked even though i had previously faced the same experience three times! I decided to share my story because i believe we need to raise awareness on harassment so that on the one hand harassers recognize that what they are doing is not accepted and on the other people would speak up if they ever face such a situation.
