So. Back when I was working in retail, one of my co-workers seemed nice. She was friendly and such, but at the same time if yo were talking to her, you felt like she'd turn off and just stand there, nodding saying "fantastic, fantastic" without really listening. I could have been having the worst day ever and it'd be 'fantastic' but that seemed harmless enough. Anyway, I left said job to go to university.
We exchanged numbers before I left, and hardly spoke. Then I sent out a text with my new number, and suddenly she was texting a lot more. As in everyday. I mean, that'd be fine, but again it was the kind of thing where she wouldn't take my replies properly into account and everyday I would get the same texts. "Having tea now." "Finished work now." etc etc, literally these are all she'd send. How did she want me to reply? "That's fantastic?" It got to the point though where it was just getting weird, like she literally sent me dozens of messages just reading "tea" or "cup of tea". So I stopped responding. After a few weeks of continuing to send these really bizarre messages, she suddenly reverts back to "hw r u?" I felt bad for ignoring her as I don't think she has many friends, so reluctantly sent her a reply and BAM. Back to the hundreds of stupid little messages.
Come November, she got a new phone and sent one of those "this is my new number text me" things, so I just didn't. A week later, she texts me. I haven't replied to her since she changed her number and now it's just gotten ridiculous. She's STILL texting me.
I don't have wifi here so can't update for a while to actually block her. It started off with her just sending loads of how r u messages. Now she's sending ones like "THE last time you txt me was November 17th" and "y wont u tx me?"
Most people get the hint after three days of silence. Now she's starting to sound even more freaking erratic. I hate looking at my phone now in case it's her again and it likely bloody well is. Part of me feels bad for ignoring her I mean I know it stings, but there really was no nice way to say that she's freaking me out a bit, everyone who's looked at the messages agrees she's a bit obsessed from the sheer volume of them. I mean I know that it sucks to be ignored, it's happened to me too but yeah. Replying to her I just know is a bad idea even if I was telling her to f*** off. So NOW I have to make do with the do not disturb thing.
Hopefully now I can actually finish my work if the venting's cleared my head. ;=_=
