O/T: Coworker is back on his BS
Here’s the original post regarding it: https://www.steptalk.org/blog/momjeans/ot-inappropriate-workplace-drama-...
I recently leveled-up at work, so to speak, and this has put me in the position of having to occasionally be around and verbally engage with this male coworker.
That in itself is no big deal, as I’ve since asserted Grey Rocking, worst case ghosting, the living daylights out of this dude.
About a week ago, he approached me and offered an apology, stating it “would never happen again,” and asked if we could be friends. I offered a very flat “thanks” and (what I felt was sarcastic and backhanded) “sure” and went on my way with work.
Well, it only took less than 48 hours for him to get back on his inappropriate behavior.
After the last fiasco, I immediately unfriended him on Facebook, blocked him on Instagram, and blocked his phone number. I did not block him on Facebook, because I felt in doing so that it would make him lose his damn mind and I didn’t want to imagine what kind of fallout that would cause.
We had our monthly catered workplace luncheon last Wednesday (he “apologized” that Monday). During that lunch he proceeds to send me several messages via Facebook messenger, telling me I’m cute and that he’s always thinking about how cute I am at work.
I wanted to stand-up and flip the table. I was livid.
He has been messaging me nonstop via messenger since that day. Sometimes I go a day or two before opening it to read. I never respond.
My immediate thought was to block him, but I’m leaning towards allowing him to keep at it, so I have record of his unsolicited communication to hand over to my boss.
Obviously, I’m super creeped out by this person who I once considered a friend, as some of the messages say things like, “I let (enter a fellow coworker’s name) know that we made up.”
W T F?
What is this guy’s malfunction? Seriously, I’m curious what others think this guy’s issue is. To me, it borders delusional. Perhaps even obsessive.
