I am female, a feminist and cannot tolerate rape or sexual comments, however.......... [View all]

today I answered it with humor.

I was stalled in traffic, there was an appliance delivery van, traveling in the opposite direction and stalled. I noticed the driver looked exhausted & tired on a Friday afternoon. I nodded in his direction, to say hello. A few seconds later he rolled down his window and said
"Miss, want to meet me in the alley for the delivery of a new appliance" without skipping a beat I responded "depends on how big that new johnny rocket model is". He looked stunned and then just started laughing as did his co-driver. He then nodded to me & said "touche".

You know, I normally would have responded to his words, with a fuck you, or giving him the middle finger, but somehow today, I was able to put him in his place with laughter.

And I felt okay after this interaction.
