    Hehe,

    1. Glad your okay
    2. It's great you have a sense of humor
    3. Why does it seem like the men you don't want to be hit on by, are the first to ask you out? I mean gee, would it hurt is just once you got the nice cute normal guy with a good job? LOL!
    I was just talking to my friend about this and he said its because unattractive men think they are all that OR they know how unattractive they are so they feel they must be on offense. *shurgs*

    Of course this is the same friend that once told me if I think I could fly, I probably could. (1st grade. ) So after that incident I stopped believing him.

    Yup; a team of them are here everyday.
    We get to call them for the little stuff too. Like the TV doesn't work, or the call bell won't work or is working too much.
    What good is it if one of the team members stays on the floor to stalk nurses!?! :spin: Its not like he was fixing anything.

    You my friend are way too nice. Creepy crazy people do not get words that do not hurt their feelings. In my little experience if you don't tell them off they keep coming right back. and back. and back.

    Oh I can't wait to go to work tomorrow. I have this feeling that he is going to be there. Typical.

    If he is there, you need to take a direct approach and tell him in no uncertain terms that he doesn't belong on the floor if he isn't doing a specific task. Responding passively to flirtatious stalking is the same as encouraging it in the distorted thinking of these desperadoes. If he still doesn't get the message, call his department and tell them that you have found one of their employees that seems to be misplaced.

    Seriously, don't put up with his shenanigans. And be totally prepared for him to turn on you and make it sound like you're all full of yourself and conceited because he was never interested in you in the first place. It's a way of saving face.

    :yeahthat: Miranda is absolutely right. This guy's behavior is way out of line and it could escalate into a situation in which you are not safe.

    I think you have grounds for a sexual harassment complaint.

    Glad you are okay from your other incident but please be careful of this maintenance guy.

    I had my Ipod on as I walked so I really didn't hear anything as I walked the empty halls, when all of a sudden BAM!!
    People who wear ipods in their ears are very easy to whack. Might be something you want to remember.

    I'm sorry you're going through all this with the maintainance man. I had a co-worker stalk me at my previous job. It got so serious that management ended up assigning us to work in separate units. Please, if this man continues to make you feel uncomfortable, don't hesitate to go to your boss and tell them about it.

    Very funny story!!! I'm sitting here trying not to fall asleep after a dull night in the ED, and your story perked me right up. Thanks for that!

    I really worry about someone stalking you at work because that type of behavior can escalate into something worse. You need to try to get this fixed. If your manager cannot help you, go to your HR department and talk to them. You have to get your complaint in writing. After that, if you do not get help, you need to make a report to the police and get a restraining order on him. This will probably **** him off and he will just get worse. Restraining orders are about as good as the paper they are written on but you have to have it on record. Then you have got to start watching your back. Make sure that you are not in situations where you are alone with this guy. If he gets near you, tell him to get away and don't be polite about it. Make sure someone is walking you to your car. There are plenty of cases where people were being stalked in the workplace that turned to violence. You have to take this guy seriously. He can hurt you.
