I put a guy in jail today using the power of pony.
STARTS OUT LIKE THIS: First off, I gotta point out I'm a girl. Not out of DOOT TOOT attention seeking but as an essential part of the story. So I'm on the bus, sitting next to the window and riding along and etc. Guy sits next to me, no biggie.
Then I feel what I think is his hand on my flank, squeezing. So I'm a fluttershy, and I give him the benefit of the doubt. I scoot forward on my seat, away from his hand, just in case his hand was asleep and he didn't realize or whatnot. Nope, his hand moves forward and continues to grope me. I'm VERY upset right now due to flashbacks from when I was a kid to other groping incidents and I'm NOT a happy camper.
So I stand up to try to move, and his hand is STILL on my flank and he moves his legs so he blocks my way. The bus stops at the transfer center and the guy walks off, giving me a smirk. I'm NOT happy, not at all. So I decide to tell the bus driver.
The bus driver starts to blame ME (seriously) and asks OH WELL WHY DIDN'T YOU SCREAM AND HOLLER (because I was scared and flashbacking to a rape as a kid?) and WHY DIDN'T YOU MOVE UGH (I tried to move, I moved away twice and tried to walk away from the seat but he wouldn't let me). I gave her a detailed description of the dude (seriously, he was dressed REALLY distinctively, to the point it surprised me) and pointed him out since he was standing right outside the bus.
I wasn't going to say anything to her but one thing that these silly ponies has given me the courage to do is to stand up when somepony wrongs me. I ended up missing my transfer to a bus to take me to a very important job placement interview to give this report because I knew it was the right thing to do, if not for me then for other ladies. The driver's response? She told me that she refused to take a report because I didn't "move" and "scream" and that it was my fault anyway and etc.
Needless to say, by now I am crying and I get off and take my bus home. Now, I go home and I think and I wait for a few hours because in the front of my mind is her telling me that nothing could be done about this and he'd get away scott free. But I remember reading about other bus groping incidents in the news and I think that enough is goshdarn enough and I call the Metro peo
