These ladies are armed with more than just cameras.
The incident happened when i was 15 and i was kind of into the Japanese school girl look. I was wearing a short plaid skirt with a baggy sweater and high socks. I was walking down the street from my home in broad daylight and i noticed this car creeping up behind my slowly. I turned and there was this creepy-looking guy leering at my hemline. He then proceeded to call out:“Hello Miss! What’s your name? You want a ride?”. And i noticed he had one hand on his steering wheel and the other in his lap. I turned and gave him both fingers and told him to go F**K himself. He STILL followed me for another 10 minutes and i can still feel his leery stare till this day. I live in a expensive and exclusive neighbourhood in Singapore and i couldn’t believe there were creeps like that following me around. Sicko!!
