I was (sexually) assaulted at Piggly Wiggly.


I was at Piggly Wiggly in South Carolina buying a t-shirt when this man comes up from behind and just slams himself into me almost knocking us to the floor.  I thought it was an accident and just tried to catch myself from hitting the ground.  Then he did it again!  I mean he’s slamming into me from behind at full force almost making me fall in the floor.

By then I didn’t feel so good to my stomach and I felt violated.  It was a bad feeling.  I don’t recall him groping me but I was in too much of a shock to really know what was going on.  All I know is his body was up against mine twice.

I had always thought I would be a bad ass woman attacking a man that was in my space without permission but instead I froze.  That upset me the most.  I didn’t react.  I just stood there.

I was shaking and in tears.  I went back to the minivan and tell Superdad about what happened and he was very comforting.  I still feel hurt and confused about it. 

**Typing this up has me shaking and my eyes are full of tears.**

I think you had a normal reaction. Why did he do that? I would of called police and pressed charges. Im sorry you had to endure such nasty abuse!

I don't know. I just left the store. I didn't call the police as we were on vacation and heading out of town after that stop.

Reporting him would have done nothing anyway.

Moving comments over from Facebook.

Teresa ~ That is horrible, I'm so sorry about that!

Tracy ~ So sorry this happened to you! I would be feeling the same! He could have been trying to pick your pockets too! I have heard of people doing that just to see if they can feel what you have when they slam into you!

Supermom @ Tracy I thought of that too. Thankfully I didn't even have my purse.

Libby ~ i am so sorry that you had to experience that horror. It is natural for your body to freeze when you are in shock, don't be to hard on your self for not retaliating in your defense.

Debbie ~ Omg that's awful... While I'm glad your okay I'm also in shock that this happened ... I'm So sorry !!!

Supermom ~ Thanks everyone.

Pick yourself up Michelle! Don't let that guy continue to hurt you. You are stronger now and more aware. You did what any of us would have done.

I'm sorry it happened to you!!

Why didn't Superdad go inside and deal with the creep himself?

Jen, thank you so much for your kind words. I can always count on you to say the most nicest things! :)

Anon ~ Cause it wouldn't have mattered. I showed him to SD when he came out of the store. He did look like a creepy lil perv.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. I would have alerted the an employee at the store or maybe just froze up like you (((hugs))).

You should have called police to file assault charges on him, I think it is more of assault & battery then sexual assault although I am sure it feels like that.I think we all think we would react different but you never know until it happens.I was taught @ class to practice screaming something that will alarm everyone around..such as HELP ME,or Fire or This Person is attacking me, Help Me.but its hard to remember anything when your in shock :*(
