You know, you're pretty but you'd look a whole lot nicer with a smile instead of a frown. I see you here all the time and it looks like you hate being here. Be happy!" She didn't seem as serious after that and I thanked her for always working on friday nights when I needed to buy beer. Point is, I wouldn't consider this catcalling or harassment.

A lot of girls have common sense and know that not all male-female interactions are harassment so don't worry about it

Not sure if this same as Harassment..

Anyway, it was semi-dark outside and raining like cat and dog.. I took out my hearing aids and on my way outside, I noticed this Guy was trying to get in the house and yelling at his gf/wife (can tell by his angry expression and mouth opening like he yelling). I continue on to by the Ally and lend my back on the side of the Truck..

I noticed this Guy was walking down the Ally looking very Angry and he walk passed me, he was like about 10 to 15 feet away from me.. Since I don't have hearing aids in (Stone deaf/can't hear anything) This guy look at me and start yelling and (can tell he was cussing out) like he wanted to get in Fight.. It was raining hard.. I just stand there staring at him, not fazed by his behavior.. I just simply ignored him and I noticed his gf/wife was standing in the ally about 30 or 50 feet away from us..

Finally this guy continue on walking down the ally away from his gf/wife.. I just stand there for few min enjoying the Rain.. I went back inside the house put in my hearing aids and told Mother that the guy was PISSED and I thought he was gonna hit me haha.. Of course My Mother didn't believe me.. So I just went in my room! :p

Of course I normally let people know that I'm deaf, but I wasn't in the mood to say anything to the Angry man, I just simply stare at him and than turn my head looking straight ahead and than down looking on the ground watching the Rain, and my hair all wet, water flowing down my face.

I don't think it was Harrassment since the guy didn't follow me into the house haha, but I can tell he was piss enough to not care if he going to Jail.

Good to know. What worries me, though, is that a startling large number of girls seem to think that if you talk to them and they're uncomfortable, it's automatically harassment.

That sounds like he might have been having a bad day. Maybe got into an argument with his wife/gf. Why would be be in an alley in the rain and walking away from her?

Still bad behavior but some people have tempers like that.

It is amazing how the definition of harassment has changed in 22 years. Times sure do change.

When I think about it, I think the Gf/Wife probably yelled out at him and telling him to clam down and come inside, so she probably didn't realized he'll go off that far, and wanting him to get out of trouble so she'll willing to let him back inside the house.. -shrugs-. I think he just wanted to be alone for a moment.

Wanna know what funny, this was long time ago and he and his wife/gf no longer live next door.. But I see him working at Walmart and looking to be in good mood.. He saw me few time, just kinda of nod at me saying HI.

Like you said He had heck of a day (bad day) heh. I understand that..
