This really negative person that I used to work with…lives in the town where I work and everyday I take a half hour walk. His house is on the route that I walk…Today upon walking by…(I started ignoring him) out of the blue he said, "hey Bri you are puttin on weight again, huh?" You aren't training anymore?" I said no and kept walking. But this really bothers me…one bc I struggle with my weight and have for a long time…the fact that he said something to me about this also. I remember him from this previous job being very negative, confrontational and a real problem. He once opened his mouth to me at this previous job and I almost got into it with him. But I have grown and although I have a temper and struggle with anger I am bigger than that. Who does he think he is? I justified that he is a negative person and was trying to bring me down. He is a bully and by showing him that he got to me, he would win. He will not win. I'm not gonna let him…
So yesterday as I was walking out of the office where I work and into the post office, this same guy was walking and whistling something about "fat boy…etc…" obviously trying to get me going. I ignored him. He screached off in his car and sped off. As I was approaching his house (which is on my walking route) he pulls into his driveway real quick. As I am walking by I look over, and he starts cursing and yelling at me, "what are you looking at you faggot, bitch, fat boy, gay faggot, bitch…blah blah…etc…" He keeps yelling as I'm walking down the street. Somehow I ignored him and didn't say a word. I then called the police, who then met me and I was to show them where he lives. They talked to him and warned him. Not a crime though bc he didn't threaten me, but if he continues that it is!!! Talk about some added stress to get my ocd going…spoiled and ruined my whole day, evening, and even today! I'm supposed to pick another route to walk and call them if it happens again! If it happens again, not sure I can ignore it again!!
