so, last night, I was on the bus into town. The bus was quite empty. A guy, about my age, jeans and t-shirt and glasses, sat down next to me. I noticed this as being a bit odd, but as he was of East Asian origin, I figured he may not be British and have such an uptight approach to personal space.
After a few minutes, I noticed he had his hand down between us on the seat, and, embarrasingly, his little finger was touching the side ofmy thigh. So, I shuffled up as far as I could away from him. About a minute later it was back again. The movement was so imperceptible I thought it must just be due to lack of space. I shuffled up, but it happenened again. I began to start to think he was deliberately 'accidentally' touching my thigh. But what could I do? The movement was so slight I couldn't say anything. Eventually, I shuffled up again, glared down at his hands, and he put them in his lap.
THEN, he bent down to get something out of his bag, and 'accidentally' brushed my knee when he got back up again. By this time, I was getting annoyed, and it was nearly my stop. So, he moved aside to let me past when I got up, and as I moved past, 'accidentally' brush the back of my thigh with his fingers. I was so outraged yet it seemed so unlikely, I didn't say anything!
So, what should I have done? Gentlemen, have you ever stroked a lady on the bus?
