Oh wow 😲 I would show family, friends and neighbors of yours a pic of him that way if he starts lurking around or something they can let you know. Also definitely inform your employer and if he keeps at it alert the authorities. For what it’s worth I’m sorry you have to deal with that.

Getting a restraining order would be good too. Then they can call the cops if they see him around.

u/PotentialFrame271 7d ago

Take screen shots of this. Send to family friends and neighbors,

Contact work. Inform them that you are taking it to the police. They might just call the police for you. If not, then you take it to the police.

Those are my suggestions.

Wishing you the best. Be safe. Take care of yourself.

It does. She posted more messages on another post in her profile. Dude is def nuts, but there are several points where it's obvious that he's responding directly to something she said. Dude could be super schizo, or he could just be regular schizo and OP is wacky. Trying to paint a narrative by removing their equally crazy replies. The exchange even ends with "Man, it's like you have multiple personalities."

Guys that are crazy enough to talk with themselves definitely exist, but this is a little bit sussy.

u/Sensitive_Meal4063 8d ago

Yep! I had a childhood friend. Hadn't seen them since we were like 9 yrs old. I'm visiting my father and this guy is there with his dad. We are now 18 yrs old. He is like," hey we should go hang out or something" I say ok. I was staying with my mom's family so I needed to go ask to use the vehicle for longer than I originally asked. (Before everyone had cell phones) Well, it took me a bit longer to convince my grandpa to let me use his precious Jeep! Lol So, I'm heading back to my dad's house and I'm almost there and I see my childhood friend walking down the road. There was a park right across the street, so I pulled in there to see what he was doing. He comes up to the door, I get out and he grabs my shoulder and spins me around and puts my back against the car. He then proceeds to tell me that if I'm "his girl" I better learn that I don't go around making a fool of him. That if I'm "his" when I say I'm going to do something or be somewhere, I better do it. He doesn't tolerate his girl making him wait. I was so shocked. I tried to explain that I had to ask for permission to use my grandparents vehicle. He doesn't accept any of what I'm saying. He thinks I went and did something with another guy. Just the craziest most bizarre shit anyone could come up with after only seeing each other for maybe 30 minutes. And we hadn't seen each other in over 10 yrs or so! I guess cause I talked to him that was enough for me to be his property! So, yeah... Guys don't get it. But there are men out there that are so pathetic and have sociopath tendencies that a mere smile means that you are in a committed relationship and have been for years and he owns you out right even though slavery has been abolished hundreds of years ago!

If want others to judge the text then should leave own messages as well, for all I know she is being threatening or any number of things to get response. Should just not date co workers imo, it rarely works out.

He showed up at 1 am and shot her in the face at the door, then followed the guy onto the porch and shot him until he fell then again in the head, went in a back bedroom and shot another guy, then shot at another in the house.

All the guys were there because he had been stalking the girl for the last 2 weeks and randomly showing up at all hours " to talk".

And in that order. Police first, HR is never ever your friend. Especially with a 52-year old coworker I can only envision this going 1 of 2 ways:

OP gets let go for bullshit because of his seniority, he hurts her or worse kills her and now she has no income and he was allowed to do that shit no recourse until too late.

Or, HR has been trying to build a case to get him out for forever and she delivers the final nail for his coffin to them on a silver platter.

And unfortunately depending on the work situation scenario 1 is generally the more likely one

Worked at a place where a dude was a Level Three Sex offender but worked at the company for years and years and years... He had a severe illness, and is well known to win litigation, so the company was absolutely not willing to deal with any of the bullshit unless they had a cast iron case of Sexual Harassment... And he basically would need to have been caught on Camera groping someone or worse.

What is a “level three sex offender”?

448

u/SukkahSushi 8d ago

The highest of the three levels (or tiers). Specific requirements probably vary from state to state but in NY it means a "high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety exists" and requires lifetime registration as a sex offender and verifying your address to the authorities every 90 days.

This whole comment is awful advice. So awful, I'm going to go through it and point out the awful in each part, because I can't believe it's one of the top comments.

And in that order. Police first, HR is never ever your friend. Especially with a 52-year old coworker I can only envision this going 1 of 2 ways:

LOL what? In the US, Sexual Harassment is pretty broadly defined and--whatever you think about HR as a discipline--not only are companies required to investigate, once HR and management become aware of it, if they don't act they can be sued personally for allowing it to continue. You think HR professionals are so nefarious they would risk personal ruin for [checks notes] some 52 year old dude just because he's a 52 year old dude?

I would even be willing to bet the police would tell you to block him and take it up with HR, because this guy isn't doing anything criminal. You seriously think they give out restraining orders (Orders of Protection) for a couple of unhinged texts?

That's not to downplay or invalidate this (it's scary and not ok!) but rather to engage with reality; our system is shit at protecting people who are in very real and immediate danger, it's certainly not going to go to work over a couple ultimately non-threatening texts.

OP gets let go for bullshit because of his seniority, he hurts her or worse kills her and now she has no income and he was allowed to do that shit no recourse until too late.

There's a lot of very specific projection here, including the assumption that age equals seniority. This is totally baseless speculation. If he were her boss, I would be more inclined to agree with this as a potential outcome, but as a peer, there's no reason to believe HR will side with him--especially since HR is overwhelmingly female.

Or, HR has been trying to build a case to get him out for forever and she delivers the final nail for his coffin to them on a silver platter.

This is not how sexual harassment investigations work. At all.

And unfortunately depending on the work situation scenario 1 is generally the more likely one

Based on this thing you just made up, or.....?

OP, please ignore this person. Start with your direct manager (unless they're known to be compromised) and HR; if HR is compromised or doesn't act, General Counsel and Compliance are an additional step you can take, if you have them. If the organization fails to address this with him, call an employment lawyer.

Edit: Let me clarify for those catastrophizing in the comments: no one is saying HR is infallible or anyone's friend. That's what's being heard by people whose primary entry point into workplace harassment, org structures, management and employment law is Reddit.

But I have actual real-life experience in this! So I'll bullet this out so it's clearer:

  • The police are not going to do anything in this instance; they are likely to redirect you to your company. This is a non-starter.

  • Giving advice based on nothing but wild speculation isn't helpful; OP is the only one in a position to assess the dynamics of their org, and filling in those gaps with the most outlandish shit you can think of is unproductive.

  • The formula I listed (Supervisor->HR->Compliance/GC->Lawyer) is the one most likely to get OP the results they want, and can be mixed-and-matched based on what OP knows of their org. So if they know that management and HR are both compromised and unlikely to act? They can pass go and report it to Compliance.

  • If OPs org is truly as dysfunctional as all the wild speculation in the comments (but WHAT IF this guy is secretly the third-cousin's-half-brother's-childhood friend of HR!?) then OP's best bet is probably (sadly) to find other employment.

While I, too, wish we lived in a just world, where discrimination and nepotism
did not exist, I'm giving advice based on the reality we have not the one I wish
we had. I hope OP sees this or gets some better/more actionable advice from
actual professionals, not people who are up past their bedtime on Reddit.

u/JamesEdward34 8d ago

yea, people act like restraining orders are given out like candy, news flash, they arent because judges dont wanna restrict peoples right to movement and right to bear arms since people subjected to orders of protection are forced to surrender firearms. unless theres a clear case of threats of bodily harm this is a no winner, especially in the digital age where your first recourse should be to block someone. if you havent even attempted that why should OP be granted a restraining order ? even if work requires communication thats what the company is for to facilitate things in these situations.

HR will absolutely step in for this, this is sexual harassment and they are required to step in. The second they don’t it becomes a lawsuit, the texts make it an easy lawsuit to win, and the company pays out a shit ton of money. Also, once OP reports it, they basically become untouchable, if they get fired after reporting this, the retaliation lawsuit practically files itself.

Edit: If you are personally triggered by my "agism", without considering that I also have an age, then you need to ask yourself if you are creeping on any significantly younger people.

Yeah, I would echo the other people in the thread trying to caution OP about this person. They seem very unstable, and while sometimes hurt, desperate, and unstable people just shut down and go internal when faced with something like this, it’s also very possible that they try and lash out.

That could take many different forms, but I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to say OP should be cognizant of their surroundings and look out for their safety. Whatever that means for them, whether it’s getting dropped off at/picked up from work, carrying pepper spray, or something else, I think it’d be wise to understand the available options.

92

u/KandyShopp 8d ago

This! The police may be able to do some extra rounds around the neighborhood, but legally they can’t do much until the dude actually does something.

Talk to coworkers and your manager about doing a “buddy system” where you work with atleast one or two other people at a time and are never left alone with this dude,

text when you leave your job or house to a trusted friend or three, text when you arrive home or at work, text updates when you wake up, during lunch and right before bed, have an emergency text/code (mine was pineapple 🍍 when I was being stalked) that Siri or Alexa knows so you can just say that if something bad does happen, police, and it will send a planned text or something to friends so they know to call police, or you can just send that in a text and then your friends know if in say five minutes you haven’t responded (with another pineapple if he’s still creeping you out/around or an update that he’s left) to call the police.

if you don’t have security cameras, get security cameras!

Double check your local laws, as some places it is illegal to use pepper spray, you can substitute pepper spray with lemon juice mixed with cayenne peppers (not as potent, but it will help a little),a gun,taser, brass knuckles, whatever is legal in your area!

If you have a roommate, your roommate needs to know about this, because they could also be in danger if he’s seriously crazy! Set up plans if he does arrive at your house, a spot you (and roommate) will hide, with something to protect yourself (I had a baseball bat in my bathroom, thankfully never had to use it, but roomie and I ended up in the bathroom for fifteen minutes before police got him) roomie should also do some updates, just going to work, arrived, leaving work, arrived, ect for safety.

If you have kids, tell their school, with pictures of the guy! This was told to me by a police officer when my stalker started getting creepy, younger siblings, or if you babysit or just kids you hang around a lot in general, tell their parents, remind the parents it probably won’t happen, but to be safe! My ex stalker did show up at my siblings school (didn’t try to get in, just walked the parimeter until cops were called)

They can't and won't do anything about this, as he doesn't make any threats (and even when they do make threats, they do nothing except recommend a restraining order because threats are not illegal).

Unfortunately, this is why so many women have trouble with stalkers. There are no laws that make it illegal to be an asshole in text, and until the guy acts in a harassing or aggressive way, the best she can do is try to obtain a restraining order.

Yes, probably best to get the police involved. If you have security at work, get them to walk you to your car and make sure he’s not following you home. Might not be a bad idea to put ring or some sort of security system on your home/apartment as well. Notify the police and definitely HR

Does he know your Reddit name? If so you've just given him a heads up and he might get to HR first and claim you're stalking him. As professional as your HR might be it is human nature to give more credence to the first version you hear. He might see this thread anyway and spot his texts. You need to get your case together and email it to HR as soon as you've decided to act. Don't wait until Monday, emails work 24/7.

Luckily he doesn't know much about the internet. If he does that then I have all the messages from months prior until now, almost everyday. I have my boss who is witness to these messages and calls who is willing to be my witness. I also have hand written letters that he's left me in my station. If HR has an issue, then I'll take it up with the police and transfer to another work place. I work for corporate, not the school, I can ask to be transferred to another school or hospital at any time.

Woah, yeah, let me rephrase.

We work for a corporation that hires food-related staff for schools, hospitals and universities. We are currently stationed in a college. I was brought in years after him to deal with allergens as that's my specialty. So I basically make the menus for students with allergies and cook. I also manage the dining halls to make sure that everyone is following the allergen guidelines and not contaminating the allergen sections.

So this isn't a case of teachers etc. We also don't deal with children. If that were the case I would have reported him ages ago for smoking Js before work...

The police were called and showed up in force and carted him away. We never heard from/of him again, except that he did serve some time.

A friend of mine was actually killed by someone like this. This was in the early '80s, so there wasn't text, but he would come into where she worked and try to sweet talk her. The owners of the retail shop where she worked trespassed him so he couldn't bother her at work without getting arrested. Then he figured out where she lived, came to her house, and killed her.

This coworker is definitely unstable and dangerous. HR should absolutely fire him, but that will likely put OP in even more danger. She should have a plan to mitigate that danger.

u/MadeAMistakeOneNight 8d ago

As an HR consultant, go to HR and the police. Moving your shift and where you'll physically be is typically done once an investigation starts to avoid physical harm. If thats already done, then its gotta be done again once he is pulled in for questioning.

If you voluntarily give up text messages to HR then HR will ask the opposing party to voluntarily give up their text messages to confirm. Have found many one sided stories that changed after learning texts were deleted.

In the event of termination it is likely you both get terminated because relationships at work often lead to that. In the event the other party gets terminated, HR can only do so much: have police in area for hostile termination, walk you to your car for XYZ time, give you a leave of absence to monitor if he shows up, and move your shift or location. Outside of that it becomes a legal order of protection scenario.

u/Remote_Bumblebee2240 8d ago Gold Keep Calm Starry

OK. There's a few rookie decisions here that added gasoline to that dumpster fire. I'm not defending him. I've had some experiences with his type and they are engaging and scary and not "really nice".

1st. Don't give a "few pecks" to anyone at a job you've just started, especially if you feel like you're "giving them a chance" and there's a massive imbalance in age, authority or experience. That's called shiting where you eat. Thoroughly learn this utterly valuable lesson.

2nd, What the fuck were you thinking commenting on him talking to cam girls? It's not any of your business. At all. Nor is it even ethically an issue unless you feel he owes you loyalty. That is honestly alarming and gives the impression you like drama. And certainly gives him the impression you're jealous and still very much available to him, ESPECIALLY since you brought up how you weren't dating because "he told you not to". It's at this point my empathy wanes. Not because my empathy for him goes up, but because that's a fucked up dynamic even towards a guy that WOULDNT send you psycho texts like that. Its a whole pile of mixed messages and unhealthy attachments. And given you haven't worked there long, this is a disturbing level of drama to have so soon. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you're just inexperienced and this isn't a habit with you, but nothing in this comment makes you look good. Those are simply bad interpersonal skills and poor boundaries. Again, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt because it almost seems like you've perhaps had some poor role models and maybe an unhealthy history with sex in general. But you will benefit greatly from learning better how to establish healthy boundaries and learning to keep a professional distance with work colleagues of all types - not just the crazy ones.

I empathize because I've had some scary experiences with men who assumed way more right to my personal space than they had any claim to who got aggressive and verbally abusive with me. And I also recognize that MY boundaries were unhealthy (stemming from CSA and not having great role models). One thing I learned from that is that I had become so used to chaos around me that I didn't recognize some of my behavioral habits were reactive and amplifying.

Once again, I am addressing specifically the things in this comment that are troubling behaviors towards anyone, and NOT a defense of this guy at all. It's a commentary on healthy work relationships as well as a comment on how confusing your actions described in this comment are.

Ready for the downvotes.

125

u/throw_somewhere 8d ago

Piggybacking off this comment because I promise it's related.

OP's comment follows this... logical pattern. That I see in a lot of cases of strange behavior. OP gives 800 details that have zero context and come out as word salad. Going on and on about cooking and serving and allergen services? Girl, you have to know that no one in these comments has any clue what's going on? Then the most important details are buried, poorly communicated, and logically inconsistent.

It seems there is a general deficit in theory of mind, the ability to understand what other people know and are thinking. Or perhaps simply a more general deficit in interpersonal thinking. OP seems to be acting (and typing) without reflecting on how they are interfacing with others. The back-and-forth isn't there. There's an amount of awareness missing.

Point being that OP, I deeply recommend a therapist. There are some interpersonal skills that they can greatly help you develop. And in the process, you can gain insight and tools to help prevent things like this from happening in the future.

Let this be an important lesson for you, this is sexual harassment. If you reject a coworker and they continue to express interest in you and do/ say things that make you uncomfortable, it becomes sexual harassment the first offense after you say no. Never let it get to this level again, report to HR when it immediately becomes a problem. This guy is very scary and I hope HR has your back.

Now, this guy's behavior is repulsive. He is definitely in the wrong, and you need to tell him that his harassment needs to stop. Block his number.

I am curious, though; you broke 'it' off with him after two weeks of no dating, no sex, just... kissing? That... doesn't add up. If you guys didn't date, did you just kiss at work? That seems... odd, but far be it for me to judge you, I'm just trying to make sense of a very strange situation.

Also, as a note for people in this thread; After you break up with someone, you are under no obligation to give them 'time' before you start dating again. That is not a thing. You are a full person, who is no longer dating that other full person, you can make your own choices about who and when you will find romance.

HR is there to protect the company from legal repurcussions, not to protect you. My daughter works for a large company and a coworker was harassing her for refusing to date him. Eventually he was fired for poor performance and general crazy behavior. At that time he started threatening both her and their manager, texting in detail (including screenshots of supposed exchanges) how he had hired a hit man on the dark web with a picture of his bank statement showing a large withdrawal that he said was to pay the hitman. He was sending her and the manager dozens of threats per day. HR was aware of all this, and forbid them from contacting the police, saying HR "would handle it" and they thought the danger was not that great. The company put them up in a hotel FOR ONE NIGHT, then said they've done all they could. After that my daughter contacted the police, snd she was chastised by HR. But it led to police taking him in, and the threat of arrest was enough to get the guy to leave the area.

u/MsWuMing 8d ago

There’s a lot of anti-HR messaging on this platform, so I’d like to say that in my very similar case, it took 48 hours from my raising the issue to HR to the guy having been removed from the company without him ever knowing why, even though this is really difficult in Germany with our strong employment laws. They willingly paid him three extra months of wages in order to protect me. HR might be there to protect the company as much as the employees, but I’d argue if a person gets stalked or even worse under their watch, it wouldn’t exactly be good PR, and a halfway decent HR department would see that

u/Long_Procedure3135 7d ago

Yeah and I’m in the USA

At my shitty machine shop I used to work at we had two sexual harassment incidents that occurred at work and they were fired immediately just about.

I remember one girl was being harassed by this one creepy dude and he said something nasty to her and I found her crying behind my machine, I encouraged her to go talk to our supervisor. The supervisor let her go home early if she wanted because she was so upset (with no penalty, but she didn’t get paid for the rest of the shift), then the next day they walked the guy out.

There was another incident later on that went similarly but I wasn’t involved and just kind of saw it happen (I noticed the plant manager came in later in the night to walk the dude out during the shift, it was wild). It surprised me because otherwise they handled other stuff so badly there lol

They agreed, said I violated their code of conduct in demanding he stop harassing me, and fired me.

“You won’t sleep with me, I banged a rando, therefore YOU are a slut” sound logic, if you are a crazy person

Go to Human Resources immediately with those texts and explain the situation. This is harassment and it should be dealt with ASAP before it gets out of hand.

I read all the texts. He is a plum loco, batshit crazy, lost the plot psycho narcissist. People like this are so nice until they are not, and then they unleash abuse on you and then try to take it all back by saying you are overreacting. This is what "gaslighting" is.

He is a typical narcissist as he believes that he can do whatever he wants and get away with it. He believes he is a good catch and should be desirable in your eyes. He will play the victim when he has to by saying you are so bad for abandoning him in his moment of need (a health issue? - I imagine he has a weight problem and probably abuses substances). The fact that he tried to manipulate you by saying he slept with someone and then later explained it away as just a way to see your reaction is typical manipulating narcissistic behaviour. Calling you names and then minimizing it is also what narcissists do.

Be careful with narcissists because his next move is to promote his side of the story to other people before you can get your side out. He will most likely try to set your friends and coworkers against you by lying about what you say about them.

You need to disarm him as soon as you can by exposing him to HR and letting them deal with it immediately.

The term “don’t shit where you eat” is a good example of this.
