- Wedding: January 2013
I work in the real estate field. Im a property buyer and manager for a large corporation. Im retired military and my husband is an active duty soldier. Im generally not afraid of anything. When someone was burglarizing our properties, I went head to head with the guy and tackled him til the police came. So generally Im confident in my abilities to handle most situations. I keep my self up to date and my husband keeps on my toes with military hand to hand combat.
Again Im not generally a scared person. However the last week or so I have been getting really creeped out by a client. He doesnt do business directly with me, he does it with the main office in another state. I generally forward information between the two. Right now the client and the company I work for are in the middle of a small business dispute..nothing serious, one just thinks the other is right and the other is wrong and vice versa.
So for the last week, when Im coming into work, he is waiting for me in the street with his vehicle. I work kind of outside the city so traffic is minimal, and when he sees me coming he pulls into the middle of the street and stares me down. I cant get around him. I literally have to wait for him to move to get to my office. There has been a time or two where I would be pulling into my space at work and he is blocking my space with his vehicle.
Yesterday he sat outside my office for 30 minutes when I had clients in my office. I took them down the road to show them a property and a home and when I came out of the home, he was parked across the street. He then followed me back to the office. I was still going over paperwork with the clients and he was still sitting out there 30 minutes later. I called my service manager to come to the office, and before he gets there, the guy gets out of his vehicle and starts for my door, he sees my service manager coming, he turns around and goes and gets back in his vehicle and waits another 20 minutes. I told my service manager to stay put til he left. The guy leaves and then Im heading to the coffee shop down the street, and this guy is behind me again. I come out of the coffee shop and he parked right beside me.
He follows me back to my office. Again I call my service manager and he comes to make sure Im okay.
I called the corporate office to let them know Im getting a little creeped out. They are going to try to resolve the situation with him in hopes that he will go away.
In the mean time Im a bit unnerved by being followed and having this guy waiting for me at every stop. Right now he is sitting outside of my office, but my service manager is here and he wont attempt to speak to me while someone is around.
I already called the police and since he has a viable reason to be on the property I cant make him leave since he is a client of the company. I just got off the phone with my bosses and they are attempting to call him to resolve the issue.
Okay so not really any advice needed. Just needed to get it out that im a little nervous and a little creeped out…
Normally I would just kick some guys butt who was doing this, but this is a client and I cant.
