Admittedly, usually a letter from me to you would have fallen somewhere between hate-mail or complaints. But today I have a whole different matter resting heavily on my heart. I want to thank you.
OK, you can stop laughing now and sit back down, I'm serious about this one. I would really like to thank you. I realise that even though most of you guys waste your time at work on all kinds of mundane things you probably haven't stumbled across my little collection of letters yet.....so I'll give you an update.
On Wednesday i wrote a letter to a guy that has been stalking me. Not bothering me a little or appearing to be a little more interested in me than most other guys.....full on stalking. I was like a scared little mouse. After sitting around for a while, feeling like the proverbial sitting duck, I managed to work up some courage and became outraged. I refused to be the victim and took action.
First course of action:
Contacted his boss, spilled the beans, found out that I'm not the first and managed to get his ass fired.
I wasn't too thrilled at the idea of him being fired. I know this sounds really silly, but just try and put yourself in my position. He's already stalking me.....he's probably contemplating and planing my abduction and subsequent murder.....and now he has even more reason to hate me......GREAT!
Second course of action:
I finally mustered the courage to give you guys a ring. I didn't want to initially. I was afraid that i would be laughed at, ridiculed, accused of seeking attention and most of all that nothing will be done about it.
I was pleasantly surprised by the service i received. The officer i spoke to treated me with so much respect and made me feel like the most important person on earth. He didn't laugh, he didn't ridicule and he was outraged. Bless his little cotton socks!
Thanx to yours truly and the ever so sweet police officer, dear Mr Honda guy has been arrested. Apparently the cops have been looking for him for a while. *skipping and jumping around office in little victory dance*
So, this is just a little thank you note. Thank you for treating me with respect, for not making me feel like a paranoid little bitch and last but definitely not least for catching the moron who has been making my life a living hell.
