When it comes to my blog I like to be happy, upbeat, and positive. Working in the Lingerie Department there's always crazy things happening, that's to expect when your working in a department like that. Last night's experience made me realize that we live in an evil, sick, and perverted world. I'm posting this story because that is how I can bring closure and I want you to answer the question as to what would you do in this situation? How would you have handled it? This is the phone conversation I had last night, I've edited some of the content due to inappropriateness.
(RING RING RING)
Me: "Lingerie, this is Courtney, how can I help you?"
Perverted Man: "Hello, Courtney, how are you doing tonight?"
Me: "Good, how are you doing?"
Perverted Man: "I'm doing ok."
LONG AWKWARD PAUSE
Me: "So how I can help you?"
Perverted Man: "Well, I'm really lonely and I wanted to talk to someone." I could hear noises going on in the background.
Me: "Ok, so what I can do for you?" Asking in an irritated voice because I have 10 things going on!
Perverted Man: "Can you hear that sound in the background?"
Me: Asking in a very irritated voice, "What is that?"
Perverted Man: "Why don't you come over tonight and have e****** with me?"
Me: In a upset and sickened way I said, "I'm not interested!"
After I told him that I was not interested, he hung up the phone. I remember him asking me that infamous question and being so shocked and not knowing what to say. I wish I would have called him a bad name and then hung up. A part of me wished I would have played along so I could have gotten his phone number and address so I could submit it to police. As soon as this phone conversation was over I called the operator to page the Nordstrom Security. I told the operator what happened and she told me that he was trying to have a long conversation with her, so he asked if he could be transferred to the Lingerie Department. After talking to the Nordy Security they told me that this happens a lot to the Nordstrom up in Murray.
This experience was definitely not the highlight of my week. I felt violated, hit on, preyed upon, and I felt sick after. If I wasn't a married woman I think I would have been more scarred. But what a sick freak that would call the lingerie department to get his jollies! That is why there is online porn and those special hot lines to call. After work I felt scared walking to my car alone and even walking to my apartment alone. This is the part that makes me so upset about it is that I was violated at work, I felt uncomfortable, scared, and had my guard up the rest of the night. So what would have you done in that situation?
