I got this incident from a forum. I don’t have any proof that it is true or not. I have some questions.
How often do you face sexual harassment?
What is the best way to handle it and report it?
Have you faced anything like this in the past and what was it?
I just had the most uncomfortable and creepy ride ever while doing a Lyft. I got a request in a woman’s name, and I pull up to the place, and I call to let them know I’m here and the lady proceeds to tell me her client is by the office and he’s outside waiting on me. So I find him, and I’m getting a weird vibe from him that I don’t trust. Well, he gets in the front with me which I barely have people do. And so I proceeded with the ride as normal and not even 3 minutes into the ride he tells me that I’m beautiful and that I have beautiful hair and that my boobs look really good. And then asked me if I was with anyone which I said I’m happily married which I am. And then tells me about himself and that he was in an accident when he was younger that gave him brain damage and he was in a coma for 5 months. So I told him I don’t have a problem with that because I have an ex that was hit by a car and he had brain damage as well, and I was sorry that happened to him. Then he started telling me that his ex-wife lives with him and he is letting her live there for free because she has nowhere to go and that the least she could do was give him some every once in a while. Then he was like I have really good oral skills maybe you can try it out sometime I don’t expect anything in return. Then he decides to touch my leg and ask if I consider it cheating for me to receive oral sex and I said yes I do. Then he was like constantly staring at my boobs saying how good they look and that I should really have sex with him and let him do oral to me. I again said I’m happily married, so I’ll pass. I politely asked him to stop talking about these things. So he apologizes at that point and changes the subject for about 3 minutes, and then he asks if we could be friends with benefits and if I could come over and have some fun with him after his appointment and then he was like I know I know you are married. So I told him at that point he was making me really uncomfortable. So he was quiet for a few minutes, and then he was like I’m sorry, but you make me really horny, and you are really sexy, and I just want to have sex with you. Then he is still staring at my boobs and was like wow I really want to suck on those please come by later, and I can make it worth your while, and you will be pleased. And then from there he was like here’s my number call me later so we can set something up I want to give you oral. Then he was like it was nice to meet you call me. So I ended the ride, and I immediately called customer service to report this and told them I need to immediately speak with the lady who set up the ride to let them know that I felt so uncomfortable and that they need to speak with him about his behavior because he was so disrespectful. I don’t care brain damage or not you don’t talk to someone like that or treat them like that. You at least know right from wrong and should know that’s not acceptable behavior. My husband says I should have just let it go and move on because he has brain damage and probably doesn’t know any better. I said so if I had got raped that would have been okay and I would have just had to move on because he gets a pass because he has brain damage. Did I handle this the right way and should I make sure to talk to the person who arranged for their client the ride? I really don’t know.
