Bystander intervention story!
This happened about a year ago, but it is a story with a twist that I thought would be interesting to share. Heading home one afternoon on Cumberland, I walked by two older men.
As I passed, I heard one of the men start to make cat-call-type sounds. I’ve frequently felt on edge in this neighbourhood, so this wasn’t too unusual. However, before I could even think to react, I heard his friend call him out, asking why he was making those sounds, that it wasn’t cool to act that way.
So few people are willing to stand up to their friends’ crappy behaviour, and I would have least expected it from them, so I was pleasantly surprised! Friends don’t let friends be creeps!
