So not many people know this but during my first year of moving to KL, I was sorta stalked for a short period of time. Here's my story.
One day I received a text from an unknown number.
"Harlo Sabrina , How are you?"
"Hi there, I'm good. I'm really sorry but I don't have your number stored. Who is this?"
"Hahaha. Don't want tell you"
And that's when I ended the conversation. I mean everyone understands the most basic principles of a conversation. Someone ask a question, the other person answers. If you can't do that then I'm not wasting my time with you.
Okay this is out of the topic but, I also don't like it when people make me guess anything. Their age la, their birthday la, their favourite food la. I mean like why can't you just tell me? Does your age really have such a high value to it that you can't give it out at first go? I don't have time to play Guess The Age with you okay. I would rather spend my time streaming Modern Family.
Coming back to the story, I ignored the text and went on with my daily activities. The next day, another text came.
"Harlo, remember me?"
No reply from me. And then the following day
"Harlo, why you no reply me :( "
and it just went on and on and on
"Harlo, are you there?"
"Hi, remember me?"
"I am very bored la"
I thought I'd give this guy another chance so I finally replied
"Hey, I'm not going to reply if you don't tell me who you are. Sorry"
and then, out of the blue, the Harlo guy becomes furious, which I found pretty hilarious.
"So lansi now. Just because you are pretty you think you God la"
"Action like shit"
"Go and F*** off okay. You not so big"
I went on ignoring him. He was silent for the next two weeks. I thought he had given up and moved on to another random girl.
And then one day I got a rather creepy message.
"Harlow, What time is your class today? Are you walking to uni again?"
I stayed in a housing area that was next to campus.
It was not exactly within the campus area but it was really near, a good 3 minute walk.
How did he know I was a student? And how did he know that I walked to school?
I assumed that he could have been one of my classmates so I checked his number with the rest of my classmates but no one had his number stored.
I didn't want to freak out yet. I mean it could have been a lucky guess. I didn't want him to know that he was freaking me out as well, so I continued ignoring him. Of course when I walked to school, I carried pepper spray and was extra cautious of my surroundings.
At that time I was staying with a roommate, Japhia. For those don't know Japhia, she's one of the feistiest girls I know. I thought it was only right to let Japhia know so that she would be extra careful when walking to uni too.
"Japhia, this is not much of a big deal, but there's this guy that has been disturbing me for some time. At first it was the usual "Hello's" but very recently he asked if I would be walking to uni again. I think he may be watching me but I might be wrong. Just be careful when you walk okay?"
I expected Japhia to grunt at me and be on her way. But she did exactly what Japhia would do.
"What? Such a creep! Give me his number!!"
"I'm going to call him. No actually, you should call him. Call him now and ask him what he wants. Have you ever tried calling him??"
"No. My game plan was just to ignore him actually"
"No, all this stupid people, you need to call them. They text you because they have no balls. If you call them, you show that you are not afraid and they will stop disturbing you"
"Well, okay. What do I say??"
"Just call him and when he picks up, ask him what is him problem"
I thought Japhia's idea was really smart. So I gathered my courage and tried remembering bits of the Chinese gangster shows my dad used to watch.
I dialled his number.
And then he canceled my call.
Japhia was eagerly waiting.
"He didn't pick up. Canceled my call actually"
"Call him again!"
"Yeah, he brings you so much inconvenience by texting you all the time. It is only fair that you can call him whenever you want to."
Japhia actually made sense.
So i called again.
Same thing happened.
He canceled my call.
"Call him until he picks up!" Japhia said.
She was my spirit animal.
So I dialled this guy's number for a good 20 times. All of which he cancels.
Japhia came up with a conclusion
"You see, he is such a coward. Don't even dare to pick up your call"
I then got a message from him.
"Sorry ya. I am in a meeting. I will call you back later"
It was 8.30pm. I was pretty sure it was a lie.
I was feeling pretty good about myself. I thought I have shown this guy a lesson and was going to drop it.
But not Japhia. Japhia had a personal vendetta against this guy.
"Okay now you keep calling him, but don't let him drop your call. After it rings two times, you end the call. And then you call again. So his phone is constantly ringing"
And that's what I did. So much so that they guy turned off his phone completely.
But nope. That was not enough. Justice had to be served.
"Okay now you message him. Text him all the random messages he send you last time so when he turns on his phone, he gets like 50 messages from you" Japhia said
And that's how I spent the subsequent hour.
"wah working so hard ah?"
"ooo so busssyyy"
"why dont you reply me?"
"you always text me wor. now i reply you, you keep quiet"
"wah lansi ah now"
"you think you very big ah?'
"you think you Jesus ah?!?!"
"oh sorry, i meant, you think you BUDDHA aaahh?"
"still at work meeh"
"waah i very bored laaaaaa"
"what are you doing?"
"why you dont reply me :("
":( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :((((((((((((((((((("
Later that night, still no word from stalker.
Japhia asked me to try calling him again. He had turned his phone back on after all!
I started the whole calling "call you 100 times" process again.
Looking back, I really put a lot of effort int this!
Once again, no word from the stalker.
And I never head from him again.
This may just be one of the most effective ways of getting rid of a stalker- Stalking them back!
So anyone out there having problems with stalkers? Take it from me, this works.
Ps: This is why Japhia does not have any stalkers.
Because she stalks them back X 4.
