You are at a social event when someone you have only a basic acquaintance with, touches you inappropriately.



What is THE CARAMEL CRUNCH? Well, it’s all about decisions. When it comes to THE CRUNCH what would you do?

One of the definitions of the word CRUNCH is:

a crucial point or situation

 – generally involving a decision with weighty consequences

If you know anything about CRUSHED CARAMEL, you will probably realize I am a gentle soul, so my questions are not supposed to be terrifying! What I am hoping for really is to see a variety of responses. Afterall, it’s pretty obvious that WordPress bloggers are from a huge variety of backgrounds and cultures. It would be fascinating to learn more about how we as individuals make decisions.

Some of the questions I am going to ask are questions I have discussed with friends when we have been having coffee or dinner. I often find there is no clear right or wrong. It can be so much a matter of our individual experiences and outlook. I find it fascinating how very different some of us are when it comes to decision making.

We all have different outlooks, and may make different decisions. I am really looking forward to learning WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

  1. Thinking back to the days when I went to social events, if I’d had something to drink my reaction would be along the lines of “what the f***?” If no drink, probably more likely to walk away and tell anyone who would listen that the person was a pervert,

  2. Probably depends what frame of mind I was in myself. If I was feeling good and confident I’d probably loudly tell them to keep their hands to themselves. If I was struggling I might retreat to find someone safe to spill my guts to. Hopefully someone who would do the telling off for me.

  3. I am a peaceful person so I would probably walk away. But if the provocation is too invasive, I might say a few choices words! A slap too if they have been too forward!

  4. Yesterday in the checkout line two women kept crowding and pushing my adult daughter. I didn’t realize it, as I was in the wheelchair ahead of her, but it seemed they were way too close to her. Nowadays if someone did that to me, I would react with an unfavorable comment, same with an inappropriate touch.

    1. I have this odd habit. If someone does something odd like that, I stop whatever I am doing, take a step back and stare at the, before asking, “Are you ok?”
      I need to be careful not to pick the wrong person to do that to though.

  5. In the olden days, I would go tell my boyfriend and he would pound the p*ss out of him. Nowadays, I don’t have a significant other and so would probably speak up loudly so others would look and catch him in the act, “Please keep your hands to yourself!” These “handsy” slime need to be called out as it happens!

      1. That was the “type” of boyfriend I had. Unfortunately those aggressive tendencies can easily be turned on mouthy/disobedient girlfriends. For present day, an airhorn would be an awesome thing to carry in your purse. Can you imagine turning an airhorn on a groper? My my my that would be entertaining.


  6. I am one of those women you read about who freezes when upset and does nothing. And then people think stuff like, well, she’s an idiot, or she deserves it, or she must have wanted it.

    No. No. And no.

    I don’t know why I freeze instead of yelling or slapping or running like you are “supposed” to do, but it’s just the way I am. So, I try to avoid all situations where these things may happen, which is difficult but nothing too terrible has happened for a long time.

    1. It’s a shame we have to deal with it at all! I still wonder at why someone thinks it’s ok to grope a stranger.
      I was walking home when I lived in Kensington during the Notting Hill Festival. Three men grabbed my breasts as I was making my way through the crowds. I was absolutely baffled.
