I’m so sick of putting up with this. Tonight after my art class I was waiting at the MUNI stop to go home when some man came along and stood at the other side of the street for the one going the other direction. I thought he was staring at me but I tried to ignore him and finally he started saying some things in a low voice that I couldn’t quite make out. I hoped he was on his phone or something but when I glanced over I realized he was still staring at me directing whatever he was saying towards me. I was creeped out but I figured my bus would come soon; I knew some people were still at the community center so I would make a mad dash for it if he did anything else. Of course when my bus comes he runs for it and gets on a few seats away from me across the car where he can keep staring at me. I look over and see he’s still watching me so I finally let him know I’m on to him by throwing him some glares and show I’m not scared of him. My heart was pounding, I was really relieved my stop was at a larger station so maybe there would be more people or someone at the ticket booth. Of course he gets off when I do. I was so relieved to see three MUNI employees hassling everyone for their tickets when I got off. I immediately went up to one and explained that someone was following me and asked if he could walk me to the station exit; you just go up the stairs and then there’s a larger area with the ticket machines and everything. The creepy guy went over and sat on a bench about four feet away. I explained to the second employee that the creep had been saying weird stuff to me earlier and had been following me. The employee asks if the man is still there and I point him out, he’s sitting right there on the bench! I keep pleading for someone to just walk me to the exit and finally one half-heartedly says he’ll watch to see no one follows me when I go up the stairs. There are three employees standing there and they can’t spare on to walk me up the stairs. I even showed them who the guy was and they didn’t even say anything to him. I just wanted to be out of there so I ran up the stairs, I was really freaked out because there’s another exit on the street and I thought he could come out of that one and be there waiting for me. I didn’t trust that the employee would actually even watch to see if the guy left. I had been so relieved to see station employees when I got off, I was completely put off balance when they didn’t try to help me at all. I’m really ashamed that I didn’t make a scene in the station. I hadn’t been able to make out what the creep had actually said to me and I felt like everyone would think I was just paranoid if I said he was following me, but I’m sure he was he got on the wrong bus to follow me! I did call the MUNI hotline after and the employee was really nice and apologized and explained that one of the employees should’ve at least walked me to the exit; I have the complaint number too. The really sad thing is I love my art class but I wasn’t sure about taking it since I don’t always feel safe at night. I actually looked at the map before I signed up to make sure I wouldn’t have to walk too far from any stations. Last week as I walked out of the community center I had some guy make a hey baby comment. I’m just disgusted that I even have to consider these things when I make plans. I just want to take my art class, I shouldn’t have to be shaking when I come home because some creep harasses me. I keep going over the scenario in my head to see if I should’ve done something differently.
