the daily run

I cannot go jogging in the evenings anymore without some freak yelling how hot I am (usually while honking his car horn) from a moving vehicle. And I'm not even that good looking. I mean, I am, but that's beside the point. I wear a simple tank top and shorts and running shoes, it's not like I jog naked, and I'm not jogging in the street so I know they're not honking at me to get out of the way. Really I find the whole issue silly but feel like posting a poll about it anyway, maybe because it is so silly.

And I'd like to separate answers here by gender, not because I'm accusing one sex or the other of participating in this type of caveperson behavior more, but just because I'm curious and suspect there *might* be a correlation.

Have you ever been in a car and seen someone on the street who was so attractive, you just went ahead and honked and or yelled out a comment for them to hear?
