Okay this isn't a vent about friends or family but rather someone I barely know. Over the past couple of weeks I have become uncomfortable going into the local grocery store if a certain person is working the registers.

You need to contact the manager.

You could always confront him on your own. Obviously, only if he approaches you in this manner again. You could say something like: "I'm a very happily married woman, and would prefer that you keep these sorts of thoughts to yourself. Thanks." If that doesn't work, I'd take Izzy's advice and speak to the store manager. You could even attempt to do so anonymously, so it wouldn't make things even more awkward...ask a sacker or stocker if the store manager has an email address or such. Although, I don't know how seriously he/she would take you...you could use an alias :P

I agree with izzy that you need to talk to the store manager.

Yes. I would have also felt very uncomfortable.

I'd report him to the store manager, too.

<< what kind of guy doesn't know this kind of behavior is unacceptable... ??

The guy that worked at the feed store until just recently. Told me I was hot, he wanted to have sex with me, and that my tits looked good.

It's the only feed store I can charge, so I didn't say anything to the owner. But I told him to leave me alone. It took about 3 times before it took.

Ohhh Sadie, you made me lo real loud! OP, speak to the store manager. Like you, I would've let the greetings go at first, but when he touched you, well that is very inappropriate and if he didn't get the message with your body language, then he needs to be told with a tough talk from the store manager. Personally, I think he should be fired.
