Jerkoff on the Peter Pan Bus

I took the Peter Pan Bus from Port Authority to Providence on Monday, Feb 25 at 8:00pm. The man across the aisle from me got pretty chatty right away, and I was friendly toward him until he started annoying me and I put in my headphones and stopped paying attention. I could feel him staring at me for most of the ride, but I didn't want to encourage him, so I kept my eyes on the road outside. After a couple of hours (and after ignoring several attempts on his part to get my attention) I got fed up and turned to look at him, hoping he'd leave me the fuck alone. No such luck.

He had his dick out of his pants and was openly jerking off - while staring at me. I froze, turned away, looked back out the window; when I glanced back he was pretending to sleep. I sat there for a few minutes trying to will the bus to get to the city quickly, trying to figure out what I should do, and finally I gathered my things and stood up to move toward the front of the bus. He sat up, said "Oh, are we there?" and pulled his dick out and got back to work, this time with eye contact. I don't remember what I said - probably "Oh my god" - before I found a new seat.

I called my best friend & kept him on the phone til I was in a cab on my way home. I felt so ashamed that I hadn't made a scene - I was so shocked that I just sat there, frozen. I didn't know what to do.

The worst part is: this guy is from my town & I have to take the city bus with him every single evening. Last night I talked to the bus driver & supervisor & they're going to help me do something.

When I opened my eyes...

This is a very serious situation going on in our society today. About 10 years ago I was on a # 2 train going to work in the city when I fell asleep (lack of sleep because I had twin boys then only months old so you do the night maths) and when the train jerked to a halt near borough hall station, when I tried to move my hand it was in a locked position, when I opened my eyes I was sitting beside a man with my left hand over in his lap with his hand over mine and mine was locked on to his private parts. You could see the perv look in his eyes and when I tried to pull my hand he was squeezing it down on his private parts. I yanked my hand from him and got mad and he got up and exit the car, everyone said they thought we were lovers, because we were in that position for a very long time. Can you imaging i was there massaging this pervert private parts for him un-knowingly. I am always looking out for him because when I see him he is going to pay because God know how many more un-suspecting people who are tired and take a nap on the train that he takes advantage of. He makes it look like you are lovers. Ladies beware of this well dress perv.
