Courtney Greatrex has a shocking story to tell – one that a lot of women will be able to relate to. When you find out what happened and how she handled it, it will make you think twice next time it happens to you.
It all started when 22 year old Courtneywas walking to work at 7:30 AM one morning. She was on her way to the tube (London’s underground transit system) where she travelled each day.
As she was walking, alone, minding her own business, three men in a white van began to catcall her. They whistled, beeped their horn and followed her along the road in the vehicle as she walked. She felt really uncomfortable and a little afraid.
It didn’t stop there though. When you find out what the men in the van were saying to her you won’t believe it. It’s horrendous!
“They kept making comments at me out of the window, so I told them it was harassment. They just laughed and carried on, even when I got more aggressive and told them to leave me alone,” Chloe told The Daily Mail.
“After that, they still didn’t stop, so I took a picture of the van and they tried to hide their faces.”
Being a quick thinker, Chloe also noticed that they were driving a van for a roofing company called Aqua Roofing and she used this as an opportunity to call their boss and tell them what his staff were doing.
“Before 8 a.m. this morning, I got repeatedly goaded by these three men in their van in slow traffic.”
“They followed me down the road, ringing a bike bell and whistling at me to look at them and laughing.”
