Halloween Stalker

One of my coworkers received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers today.

However, when she read the card, she didn't recognize the name. Because it was kinda like the Candy Incident from last year, but kicked up a few notches, she immediately said she didn't want the flowers. And Matt, being the solver of all things awkward said "I'll fix it!" and then the flowers disappeared (and now, since his girlfriend reads this, he's totally in trouble if he tried to claim he paid for the flowers).

Anyhow, since my coworker didn't recognize the name on the card, she called the florist and asked to know who paid for the flowers. The florist told her, and that's how we learned that the flowers were from her stalker. At least we refer to the guy as a stalker. He asked her out about a year ago and she agreed to meet him for drinks at a bar. He sent her flowers shortly after that. She called and told him that she wasn't interested in a relationship. He proceeded to text her and email her and have candy delivered to her house on Valentines. She dutifully ignored everything and didn't contact him at all. He finally seemed to get it and hadn't had any contact with her for about 6 months. Then it suddenly started up again and has culminated with flowers being delivered to her work under a false name.

Creeeepy.

Now I understand your call from earlier today. Creepy indeed.

I don't know what i find more scary--the fact that A. has a stalker, or the fact that you think it's perfectly normal for me to call you asking the pros and cons of Tasers and Stun Guns...

In my defense, I did find it highly unusual, I just figured you and A had your reasons for asking, and it turns out I was right.

I never really understand how stalker logic works. She won't have a relationship with him, so he sends her flowers under an assumed nam...

Does he think it's his NAME she doesn't want to be involved with?
