Not for money

This post is in response to :

Reena’s Exploration Week # Week 59

Scotts Daily Prompt Late


“So you think money is at the root of all evil… “

Well just yesterday I encountered a few road side Romeo’s eve teasing a lonely girl walking down the street.

She was helpless.

Afraid to react to their catcall.

Afraid that things might escalate.

She didn’t dare turn to look.

She hurried and scurried away like she had seen a ghost.

They were doing it for cheap fun, not money.

In another separate incident, I witnessed a rather vile man touching a woman inappropriately.

It was in a crowded city bus, stacked with people.

Not even enough space to turn around.

He was behind her, took advantage of the crowd and was groping her.

She was unable to move because of the crowd and it was too late to react.

Before she could react he got down at the next stop and disappeared.

He didn’t need her money just some cheap thrill.


Thank you for reading.

Have a nice day!

  1. This resonates, Sanah! Treating another person’s body as a piece of property to enjoy and getting CTs out of somebody’s helplessness is the real pit of humanity. Money can be earned with honest effort, and has an exchange value, not this.
