Goosed!

Today while we were waiting to board the subway, Mark had quite the jolting experience. A lady who appeared to be in her 50s, sidled up behind him and firmly grabbed his behind. With a shocked expression, he turned around to see who or what had violated him. He saw the lady move on to the person standing next to him and give them the same treatment.

We have not figured out what sort of custom this is.... but in the meantime, it's definitely highly entertaining (more for me than for poor Mark).

This is even better than the pointing and screaming towards mark:)

you sure she wasn't a pickpocketer?

This is hilarious!(for those not getting goosed) Can't wait to hear what kind of tradition would call for someone to do that!

Haha! When we told my brother and his friend about it, they didn't act like it was a cultural thing and instead died laughing. I guess funny is funny no matter where you're from!

Oh and Christy, we thought about that, but if she actually IS a pickpocketer, she needs to find a new job... isn't a pickpocket supposed to be something you don't even notice?!??!

If Mark did that, would it be called "goosing" or "a felony"?

Hey, a guy was doing that at Bonnaroo and he got arrested!

Reading that story absolutely made my week. Ryan and I are cracking up at the thought of Mark getting cuppage. Bailey can't breathe either!
