AG’s Story: “In order to pay my bills, I have to be subjected to this patron for the rest of the season.”

I was on post at my job when an middle-aged gentleman proceeded to take his rolled up race program and slap my left buttcheek with it.  Earlier in the day, he grabbed my wrist to look at my tattoo but I thought nothing of it at the time. I just dismissed him as another drunk patron.

But after the newspaper incident, I immediately reported him to my supervisor who took over 40 minutes to return with a security guard. The guard went over to the man (who was kicking back, drinking beer in his lawn chair next to his wife) and asked him his side of the story. I then watched the security guard and the man exchange laughter/guffaws while looking in my direction.

I took my break to calm down and came back to my post to hear from my co-worker that the gentleman in question came over to apologize to me. He also informed my co-worker that he was an off-duty police officer.

I had to let him through my turnstile for the rest of my shift whilst being subjected to his leers. We don’t have HR on site where we work, so my complaint is lost in translation with our NYC office. In order to pay my bills, I have to be subjected to this patron for the rest of the season.

    It’s sickening when people abuse their authority in order to sexually harass and assault. Be loud about it. Humiliate him. Let everyone know right then and there next time he’s touched you. Ask him out loud if his wife minds.

    An off-duty police officer should know better. Evil Enna would want to get a rolled up newspaper and sap him back on the bottom! I’m amazed at the sercurtiy gaurd what an idiot – he’s really bad at his job – would he like it if he got smacked on the bum by some stange man? I bet not.

    That “police man” could get himself into real professional trouble. He owuldn’t like it if someone did it to his wife I bet not.

    I think you could probably report him to his superiors, if you wanted to go that far.
