“I met a nice girl who said she was new in town. After talking for a few days over IM and email, I offered to take her out to a movie. We hang out and chat for awhile before, nothing odd. About halfway through the movie, my phone starts going off (vibrate), I check the number, don’t recognize it. So I ignore it. It doesn’t stop going off for 10 solid minutes. So I excuse myself to take the call, thinking it must be important.
“‘GIVE THE PHONE TO ERICA M***********.’
“‘Excuse me? Who are you?’
“‘I’M JESUS FUCKING CHRIST AND I WILL END YOUR SHIT IF YOU DON’T GIVE HER THE PHONE.’
“‘Seriously, who are you?’
“BUNCH OF LOUD CURSING THAT I DON’T REMEMBER.”
“So I decided then to see if this girl knew who the hell was on the phone. I go back and get her from the theater. I hand her the phone and she gets really quiet and takes a few steps away just looking at the floor and saying “mhmm, mhmm.” After a few minutes, she hangs up and tells me she has to go. I’m actually pretty amused by the whole thing. I say goodbye, and finish the movie.
“The next day I get an email with an apology, and the request to go out again. She explains that it was her ex-boyfriend from a few states away, and that he didn’t take the break up and move well. And I guess he went through all her emails, got my number, and found out we were seeing a movie together.
“He called all the theaters in the area and gave them my description from pictures he found online of me. He told them I had a gun. Either he didn’t call the one where we were, or they didn’t take him seriously. I replied to her saying that I don’t know if we can go out again, if this guy is going to do stuff like this. I mean, she needs to either make him back off, or call the cops. I get a reply email, not from her, but from him. He was intercepting her email. Basically the same ‘BACK OFF, SHE’S MINE, BITCH! So I called her, told her she needed to get this guy out of her life if she wants to date people. She didn’t think it was that bad, so I told her that I wasn’t comfortable going out again.
