An unpleasant thing happened at work

One day I was in work and this man came up to the desk and started talking to us and he was a bit drunk so we were trying to like politely encourage him to leave but it wasn’t really working and then the other girl at the desk saw a dog walk past the window and she got really excited because she really likes dogs and the man said something along the lines of “Why are you so excited did Brad Pitt walk past? I know how to tell.” and he reached over the desk and I thought he was going for the computer for some reason so I was kinda like “oh hold on…” but what he was actually going for was me and he reached his hand up my thigh, like very far up, and so I leaned back and he said “You’re quite wet so he must have” and I just stood up and was pointing at the door and said you have to leave right now but like I wasn’t particularly fierce about it or anything because I was in work and I’m just thinking about how for minimum wage I was pretty polite to guy I would’ve totally lost it at in any other situation and how actually gross it was but at the time I was just kind of thinking how there is no way he just said that to me like no way and didn’t really do anything

John Andersonn My Jo - Robert Burns

John Anderson, my jo, John, 
When we were first acquent; 
Your locks were like the raven, 
Your bonie brow was brent; 
But now your brow is beld, John, 
Your locks are like the snaw; 
But blessings on your frosty pow, 
John Anderson, my jo. 

John Anderson, my jo, John, 
We clamb the hill the gither; 
And mony a cantie day, John, 
We’ve had wi’ ane anither: 
Now we maun totter down, John, 
And hand in hand we’ll go, 
And sleep thegither at the foot, 
John Anderson, my jo.
