Stalker Stevie - Follow Up

OK – I got a bunch of responses on this, so I thought this topic deserved another post of its own. It’s been about a week since I got the original scary text message. Nothing since then. So let me tell you what’s been going on.

I talked to a bunch of people about what I should do. Audrey wants absolutely nothing to do with the police, so she’s against a restraining order or even a police report. I know it seems selfish, but I can see where she’s coming from. But, I know she can’t relate since she’s never had a stalker (knowing her - she’s probably jealous that I have one). I have to admit that I’m reluctant to go to the police, but for different reasons. The last thing I want is for Stalker Stevie (or anyone else in the legal system) to know my last name. It’s bad enough that he knows my phone number.

The next option was to block his calls. However, Stevie has long since stopped using his own cell phone. Creepy phone calls have all been from 1-800 numbers, and sicko text messages have been from a computer.

My current option is to just ignore them. At least his messages have been less and less frequent. I figure if I ignore him long enough, he’ll just assume I changed my number. I should call the Other Business and see if they’ve seen him lately. Yeah – he’s been going over there ever since he got banned by us over a year ago. I wonder if his calls/texts to me just happen to coincide with his visits there? Hmmmmmmmmm… I must investigate.

Now my final option is revenge, pure and simple. I know he lives with his parents, and I’ve fantasized about going over there when he’s not home and telling his parents all about their loser, drug addicted son who picks on poor innocent girls like me. Another option is a guy I know called “Cage.” That’s Trina’s psycho ex-boyfriend. This guy was like totally mental, but he had a sweet spot for me. He was never mean to Trina, but anyone else who got in his way – watch out. The only reason they broke up in the first place was because Cage went to jail. But he’s back out now and I see him around. Maybe I’ll give him a call this weekend… LOL

So does it sound like I’m taking this lightly? Yes and no. That last message freaked me out at first, but then again, this has been happening on and off for almost 2 years now. Plus, Stevie isn’t known for anything violent (yet). The girls at the Other Business said he’s been relatively normal over there.

But it does affect me to the point that I won’t take shit from anyone. For example…

Just this past week, we had this guy come in while I was working the front desk. A mousey looking guy with a big old mole on the side of his left cheek. Anyways, he comes in and asks what our prices are. I explain our prices/times and that “tipping is optional.”

“So what do I get for tipping?” Either he’s stupid or a cop. Or maybe a combo of the two.

I played dumb. “If you’re happy with the service, then tips are welcome.”

“Yes, but what do I GET for tipping?” he tries again, but this time with a serious look on his face.

Does he really think I’m going to explain our options at the front desk? Is he soooooo cheap that he wants to know up front what his generous $20 bill is going to get him? I’ve had a bad week. I’ve been hassled by a psycho stalker. Business has been lousy. But I am NOT going to let this asshole get me to solicit myself like some cheap hooker!

“You’ll get my undying gratitude sir” I say with a smirk.

Bingo – now he looks irritated. “Look, how much extra do I have to pay inside the room?” he says with a little strain in his voice.

I grin like an idiot at him. “I don’t know what you’re talking about sir.”

“Is there anyone else here?”

“No sir.” Grin. Grin.

That seemed to do it for him. He made a sort of sucking sound through his teeth, turned around and walked out. I started laughing out loud as I made my way to the back to tell Trina what just happened. She got a kick out of it.

But here’s the real funny part of the story... The very next day, the same guy came back in while Trina was working. He asked “Is the blonde girl working here today?”

People are strange.
