Marjorie Barboza- Paris


About two months ago, on a tuesday afternoon, I was waiting for the metro at station "chateau d'eau" in Paris. When the metro arrived and stopped, the doors stayed locked for a moment. I was tired, standing like on the picture, waiting for the doors to open... they openned and suddendly a man coming out of the wagon kissed me on my left ear. It was quick and I didn't realise right away what had happened, but when I did I yelled at him "are you insane?!!!!". The man, going away towards the exit, turned around, smiled (in a very pervert way), and left. I went back home, but I kept thinking that I should have been more reactive so as to realise earlier what the man was doing and that I should have done something more. I did not expect it to happen. It was a small thing but I felt dirty and angry.
