The Curious Case of the Pesky Midnight Caller

I am annoyed. I am annoyed because I am being mobile phone-stalked. For the past few days, a mysterious number calls my mobile around midnight. When I answer the person does not say anything. I hang up and the person calls back immediately and does the same thing. When I call them back during the day to spew vitriol and venom, they immediately cut my call. So I have blocked this pesky mystery caller. Unfortunately, my phone still registers their calls and last night, this aimless individual called 5 times! There were 3 more calls this morning. I'm sure my mystery caller is chuckling with glee as he(she?) lays about in his (her?) pjs during the day. After all, would someone who is gainfully employed have such time on their hands? My national service person says it is no big deal. He says I should not worry since this is not America. America or not I have watched too many movies including Scream (loved that movie by the way!). A friend of mine and I had a tradition of going to see all the Scream franchise films on the big screen back in the US of A. Ahhhh good times! The first one was great but the successive Screams just got a tad weird and tired. Anyway, was thinking of publishing my stalker's number online but decided against that. I welcome any suggestions on how to deal with a pesky, cowardly phone stalker!

Methinks it is a secret admirer, and not a big bad monster. He is just too scared to talk to you. I dont advise calling to reign down insults. Just play it cool.

You are dealing with a real stalker here. It seems to me that it is someone who knows you one way or the orther.
The individual obviously loves to hear your voice. That is why he does not say anything because whenever you speak you make his day.
It is also possible that you know the individual, so he keeps quiet so that you dont recognize him by his voice. Probable a nerdy aquaintance who realises that the closest he can get to you without his or your feelings being hurt is remaining anonymous behind a cellphone.
I suggest you tell him in a calm but persuasive voice that you think you know who he is and if he does not leave you alone the police will be knocking at his door pretty soon.

Thanks Abbynah! Hopefully this person gets bored and stops this weirdness...

*LOL* I wish you were right Omo....Judging by the weird times they choose to call I think they are trying to be annoying rather than endearing. I do believe that it may be someone I know though...

Abena said...

I definitely agree Posekyere, I now believe it is someone I know...I think rather than a nerdy acquaintance I think I'm dealing with a psychotic sociopath!

Yeah I would be freaked out/annoyed too. More annoyed than freaked because I do not appreciate people interrupting my sleep.

I hear you Anonymous! Unfortunately, there is a sequel to this movie that shows that I'm dealing with a bit of a FREAK! *Stay tuned*
