I was mooching along in my own world a bit last week and due to the time of day, the traffic was going at a bit of a snail's pace when all of a sudden, I became aware of a white van passing me. The reason I was so aware is because the man that was in the passenger side had his head looking at me as he was going past and as the van moved ahead of me, he swivelled his head so quick to look at me and smile that I am surprised it did not roll off his shoulders!
I know he was looking at me because I was the only one on the path at the time and the comment of "It's not often the front view matches up to a back view like that love!" as he stopped in the traffic gave it away somewhat.
I blushed. A lot. Even more so when I got to the crossing and who should be waiting at the lights but white van man himself with a smile and a wink as I checked the traffic had actually stopped.
I do not consider myself anything out of the ordinary. I have a nice figure and a nice face but nothing extraordinary but although this particular episode embarrassed me and made me laugh a bit, it also boosted my confidence slightly.
However, I don't know if this whole thing was down to the jeans I had on or whether this particular white van man was on his way to Specsavers ;o).
I have a friend who gets very offended at this sort of thing and sees it as men viewing women as objects. I don't have the same problem, so long as nothing offensive is said I consider it light-hearted fun.
It's a pity when I told her that she said I should have got the number from his van and reported him to his boss.
I am considering 'losing' this particular friend :-P. She needs to lighten up.
It made me laugh and brightened my afternoon a bit so I fail to see the problem :o).
