You know, the ones with stalker tendencies.
Last Monday was the third day of my three day staycation. My Mom wanted me to take her to the big box store in town. I really wanted to go to the location one city over. I told her that I always see someone that I'm not trying to be bothered with there. Well..........she won out.
As soon as we walked in, who do I see, my work stalker.
I pointed him out to her and explained who he is. He would repeatedly walk past the reference desk and stare at me. This was at the community college. When I worked as a children's librarian in the hood, I would occasionally see the same car driving in circles while I walked home. Just before I transferred locations, the driver of the car rolled down the window one night. The driver was this same guy. He had the nerve to say, "Oh, hey!". I thought yea, like I'm going to answer you. I kept walking.
After I had been at my present location for a few weeks, the guy began appearing on this floor. He would do the same thing, walk past the reference desk and stare at me. The other thing he does, is stand at the library catalogs across from the reference desk and stare at me (I know this because every time that I look toward the elevators, he is staring at me.)
After seeing him last Monday, when I returned to work on Tuesday, I was upstairs in the GIC and dude came up there. Going through the usual motions of walking past the reference desk and staring at me.
Well he finally got his nerve up yesterday and approached me at the reference desk. He said, "Uh yea, I saw you last week at Co*tco. You never go there." I said, "No, I don't.". He then asked, "Well, what brought you there?". I answered, "My Mother."
I get the creeps whenever I see or talk about that guy. After I typed this post, I went upstairs to the GIC and guess who I saw? Yep, you guessed it. I guess he felt that me acknoledging him yesterday, meant that it would happen again. He kept walking past the reference desk and staring at me. I kept reading an article online.
