    Yesterday i went to the city centre and suddenly noticed this foreign middleaged guy following me around into a few shops...so to ensure he was following me, i walked into an underwear shop and he even followed me there..after a few more shops and him following me around a little more i was well and truely sick and tired of his stalking and gave him an awful dirty look that scared him off and he no longer followed me...but i also felt extremely guilty as to how scary i must've looked that he escaped...lol

    That happened to me about five months ago, I just started walking faster, got out my phone and fortunately enough I got to my mother's building and walked up to the Foyer guy and told him. The guy who was following me didn't bother coming into the building.

    your joking! he actually followed you in there?! did he pretend to look at some stuff or what? i think that is the point i would have questioned him:

    me: oh..we seem to be bumping in a lot today! where are you off too next?

    :rolleyes: hate people like that!

    I can really appear serious when making up something like that...the only issue would be that if he tells them i was saying a load of bs they'd be onto my case...

    I'd need to leave the house at least sometimes to be entirely certain, though i'd probably scowl at them as well, so no guilt required.
