    So I was on the train to work this morning. Now, most women know that street harassers never think it's too early to street harass.

    So that was happening. This dude was aggressively hitting on this woman, who was about my age. She was ignoring him. Everyone else was too.

    He kept after her. I could hear him saying, "Come on. I want your number. You're so pretty. You don't want my number?"

    She finally says, loudly, "NO, I don't want your number!" And what happened next was amazing.

    This young woman a few seats away, looks up and she says, also loudly, "AND NO, I DON'T WANNA GIVE YOU MINE."

    And there was this awkward silence. Like, at first people just stared at her, myself include. But then I realized, and slowly so did others.

    The second woman's friend started laughing and she said (not as loud, but still audible) "NO, I DON'T WANNA MEET YOU NO WHERE."

    And together they sang, really loudly (and off key) "NO, I DON'T WANT NONE OF YOUR TIIIIIME"

    The dude trying to get the first woman's number just stared at them, and the woman he was harassing was just LAUGHING. He was done.

    So for everyone who says they don't know what to do when someone is being street harassed, you're out of excuses. Just sing TLC "No Scrubs."
