    I never worked behind the line but was a hostess, waitress and bartender in various venues in Ann Arbor, MI and NYC, and was frequently grabbed, towel-whipped, and rubbed up on every time I brought back a bus tub or grabbed food to run. My boss at one restaurant said laughingly, when I complained, “oh, they’re harassing you? It’s just ‘cos you’re so pretty.”

    I am so sorry you had that experience at your going-away party. Though your assailant didn’t stand trial, good for you for reporting it and having him at least face the consequence of being arrested.

      Thanks, Yuki, that’s very kind. None of this will ever change if nobody ever talks about it, right?
