The Serpent Rolled Up


You’re a woman walking in a souk, and you feel a hand brush across your buttocks, or worse yet, grab a buttock, breast, or your crotch. You should:

A) Turn around, figure out who did it, scream as loudly as you can and attack the greaseball with your purse, fists, feet or anything else within easy reach.

B) Ignore it and move away quickly.

C) Find the man who did it and ask him why.

D) Find a police officer and tell him.
