Annoying People - Do You Have A

"What About Bob" is one of my all-time favorite movies. Bill Murray plays the role of a guy who drives his psychiatrist insane. Bob was a pain!!!! He was annoying and oh he was soooooooooooooo familiar. Most of us have a "Bob" in our life, and she/he drives us crazy!

"Bobs" can come in various forms:

Some are enemies who watch your every move looking for a way to nail you

Some are friends who abuse your relationship and mistreat you

Some are needy people who never seem to get enough of you

I have a friend who has this guy (old friend) that drives by her house every night to see if she is home (he doesn’t live in her neighborhood and it is about 5 miles out of his way); he drives by the pubs we go to on Thursday nights just to see if she is there. As soon as she logs onto her instant messenger, he is there and is like “HI!” like a panting dog!!! She is going insane!!!!!

He even called her the other day after 6 months of them not hanging out or talking on the phone to tell her that her commute home was going to be a bad one because the highway was shut down. I know that seems nice, but its just the fact he wont go away after she told him that she didn’t want to hang out anymore and that he had betrayed her trust and treated all of her friends like crap. He is a psycho, let me tell ya!!!!!

A few months ago, he called her in the middle of the night to tell her what a bitch he thought she was and that all of her friends were snobs. A few of her neighbors saw him sitting up on their street corner at 3 a.m. in the morning! SCARY.

They were never lovers, just friends, but somehow he has managed to convince himself that he is more important to her than he really is!!
One night, she told him she couldn’t go out that she had other plans so he called her husband’s cell phone and asked him what they were doing. Well, she hadn’t had time to call her husband and tell him what she had told this guy, so he again ended up showing up at our local pub hangout.

Last week Sail and I happened to see him at the local pub we go to and the very next day he IMd her and said he had hung out with us. Uhhhhhhh, no he didn’t. We said hello and went on our merry way.

He tries to make her jealous by telling her all these places that he goes to with other people and she has told him that she doesn’t care and that she just can no longer be friends with him because of the things he has said and done.

I am all for “love your enemies, turn your cheek the other way” and letting them bring out the best in you, not the worst, but when someone can’t get the message you are not interested and they continue annoying you, what do you do?

Do you have a "Bob" in your life?

If so, what do you do to get them not to be so annoying and to leave you alone?

Most of my "Bob's" went away after finding that they could not get control of my life with their petty antics. I don't play games (much) and anyone who has tried with me has been sent packing pretty fast. My relationships have been fairly open since high school and my life an open book. Anyone trying to come between me and my friends has found it difficult since I tell everyone pretty much everything (whether they want to hear it or not )So ... no secrets to nail me with ... A friends that believes someone else's lies about me are not friends I want around anyway. I don't easily suffer fools.

Boy, that sounds kind of harsh ... it wasn't meant to come across that way.

Hello, stalker alert...

Your friend, and all of you should start keeping logs of this cretin's sightings and communiques. Then when enough documentation is made, she should go to the police station, present it as evidence, and request a restraining order.

Change her phone number, block him from IM and email. If she really wants to cease all contact from this idiot, she needs to work harder. Unfortunately he is too stupid to catch the drift, and he's obviously not all right in the head if he's making up fantasy stories about hanging out with people, staking out street corners, doing drive-bys, and "showing up."

I don't love my enemies, nor do I turn the other cheek. Ever. When someone betrays me, I will watch and wait. When the time is right, vengeance will be mine, and my enemy will regret ever being born. Not the Christian thing to do, but then, I am not a Christian.
