i'm so popular that i have a stalker

it's always a drag having to wake up bright and early on monday mornings to head back to work. and it's always bad to wake up to the sound of your phone ringing. now combine that together. and add an unwanted phone call to the mix. not the best way to start the first day of the week.

i must have mentioned in bits and pieces before but i think i should give some background information first. prick04 and i were classmates some 13 years ago. we were nothing more than just casual friends for over 2 years before by some twist of (evil) fate, we reconnected via a mutual classmate. we then started somewhat dating. there started the series of on/off summer dating as i would call it since he left to study overseas and would only come back during the summer holidays.

we had our ups and downs and upside downs but come 2004, after a massive crash and burn and blatant disrespect of which i still feel is too personal to go into, i deemed prick04 the biggest prick i've ever met.

throughout my time "with" him, i've been on the receiving end of some rather annoying prank calls from a private number. i've always suspected it was him but never had any proof. i attempted to get to the bottom of this but to cut a long story short, i was unable to get the sufficient evidence i needed to start the long process of finding out that private number. i just bout gave up. i could have changed my number but there were too many people who knew my number, who i needed to know my number for work reasons that i decided not to change it. besides the prank calls stopped being as frequent.

we stopped contacting each other for 2 years. until i received a card from him apologising for everything. i took 3 weeks to reply and was gracious bout it but did not express any desire to keep further in touch. except that our appearance at a class reunion made it difficult not to. i thought he changed and almost started reconsidering especially when he expressed a non wavering interest in me.

yeah right. he also went on to ask my oldest school friend (who was our classmate but i've known her for a good 4 years before he did) out and they made out. (yes i realise some friend she is eh) i went back to thinking that i really didn't need all this crap.

then came the newspaper report, the one that said that he was charged for indecent exposure. that just bout cemented it for me that there was no way on earth that i ever wanted to see him, talk to him or be vaguely associated with him.

annoyingly enough, i have since run into him before and had to deal with him attempting to add me as a friend on the online social utility site. but i never really had to deal with another prank call... until now...

where he breathed "jo i miss you" and i told him, as i should have told him a long time ago, to eff off.

crank calls...indecent exposure...massive dickhead. You should pass his details on to my stalker she would probably consider him consider him a cross between the Great Gatsby and Cary Grant in comparison to me.

Yikes! At least you go to tell him off. Can't you block private numbers from your cell?

Creepy! I used to know someone who had a stalker just because they went to the same gym! I'd report it to someone just in case you need more evidence against this guy. Okay, I need to go take a shower *shudders*

toni: you have a stalker too? do tell...

treedome: i don't have any proof. but i've always thought that it sounded like him... breathy voice and all. if he tries calling again maybe i'll call him by name.

little miss angry: oh he IS a prick. a first class one.

dater at large: i can't block private calls. besides sometimes i get overseas work calls that don't come with a number and i need to answer those.

lifebeginsat30ty: oh man a stalker from the gym is freakier. that means he's probably actually physically stalking. back then i did call up my phone service provider to report it in order to get them to release the private number but i was told that i had to keep a call log and report it to the police first. i could only do that with a sufficient number of calls being logged and he unfortunately decided to ease up on the calling so i didn't have sufficient evidence.
