    There's a crazy guy at work who since I started has basically been bugging me quite a lot, he often behaves stupidly around me and seems to single me out.

    On my very first day he yelled at me 'Will you go out with me?'
    Obviously I ignored him because I'd never even seen him before, let alone spoke to him. Since then whenever its me and him alone at work he has been making rude and sexual comments to me about my friends, sometimes he makes a really loud noise with or without equipment at work to try and make me jump, especially when I'm studying.

    I told him I wasn't interested because he was too short and he stripped half naked and started dancing around the staff room spraying someone's asthma medication all over themselves. He is extremely annoying and whilst I don't mind a bit of fun, I think he's going a bit far, what should I do?

    I really don't know how to deal with him, he's been caught stealing stock from the store before but seemed to only get off with a warning so I doubt complaining about him to the managers would do anything

    I tried speaking the business manager but she just said not to worry about him and that I caused it because of my aspergers syndrome

    Some say he is nasty to them too, although he can be funny

    I don't think so, he does seem to be quite slow though

    Woah! That's way out of line, he's clearly acting inappropriately and your manager blaming it on you for something like that is very bad practice on her part. Is there anyone higher up you can speak to?

    The store owner sometimes comes and sits in where I work but to be honest I really don't want to escalate it any higher than her. He really should have been fired for stealing but clearly she has a soft spot for him.

    Just make a note of everything he does and at what time that makes you uncomfortable and show it to your manager/HR.

    Take it higher. Your company should have a complaints procedure in place.

    Is it an independent store? Or a multi store company?

    You shouldn't have to work with someone like that and if your mama get isn't going to do anything, I'd strongly recommend making some kind of formal complaint to her superior
