Forget rain on your wedding day or 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife.

THIS is an example of true irony:

BBC journalist Sarah Teale was recently filming a report outside a sexual harassment conference in Nottingham, relaying statistics to viewers regarding people getting verbally abused in public.

"An online study showed that a shocking 95% of people said they had been harassed, jeered at, or had obscenities shouted at them in the street and a large proportion said they’d also been groped or grabbed inappropriately in public," Teale said.

And no sooner had Teale gotten these words out when a man off camera yelled something inappropriate in public at the reporter.

We wish we were making this up.

Fortunately, Teale handled the cat call with professionalism, though she later took to Facebook to lament its existence:

"It’s not banter, it’s not funny and no-one should have to put up with it," she wrote. "It’s fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn’t staged. If [cat calling] is a craze it doesn’t make it any less offensive."
