Whitsles and Cat Calls

I live in a neighborhood which is under development. I can tolerate an occasional cement truck blocking the road or the sound of hammering going on throughout the day. What I cannot tolerate are the unsolicited hoots, hollers, and whistles, the workers freely yell out.

Being yelled at in this manner, is not considered a compliment by a lady.  In fact, the men, (notice I did not use the term gentlemen), are demeaning themselves when performing such an act.

What happened to “Hello”, “Nice dress”, or “You look very nice today”? Gentlemen, these are the words a lady will notice and accept favorably.

To be fare to the men, there are some women who need to follow this advice as well. Sexual harassment can go either way.
