1. “Bald head!”

As Jane was leaving work in Bristol, UK, and rushing to an appointment, a man in a white van who was stuck in traffic near her, tooted his horn and then leaned out of the van window to wolf-whistle and shout “Nice bum!” at her.

Annoyed and upset that he had intruded on her space so inappropriately, she stopped, glanced back at him and shouted, “Bald head!”

He looked affronted, she said, so she quickly responded with, “What? I thought we were just exchanging observations?” and kept walking.

She said, “It’s one of the few times I’ve been pleased with my immediate response to harassment, and I hope it made him think twice about how invasive and inappropriate his cat call was.”
