Background: http://www.apolyton.net/forums/showthread.php?t=186956

Every, single, day...he persists in coming by and creepily asking why I haven't added him on facebook yet.

Today he's come by twice already, and not just coming outside the cube...but all the way inside the cube to talk to me. Personal space, asshole! :mad: I've only been at work 1/2 an hour today.

He is now inviting me to play Euchre! And offering to teach me. Apparently him and some other old fucks play Euchre at lunch almost every day and he insists I should come.

I keep declining but this is getting very fucking annoying. So creepy.

Then how do i know that you're not lying?

15-07-2009, 16:07:41
Is there anyone else here?

15-07-2009, 17:20:23
I'm here. But not there.

15-07-2009, 18:58:01
I lurk

does he know you are gay?

if so he's flirting, nothing wrong with that

15-07-2009, 20:24:16
No, he doesn't

Seriously Asher, you need to speak to someone there about it. Either your line manager, or HR.

If you were a woman you wouldn't have to put up with this, so in the name of equality, nor should a man.

btw, do you think this creep has a functional gaydar?

15-07-2009, 22:47:40
Naw, don't speak to the manager unit you've spoken with the guy because he might just be someone with no social skills. Either way you at least owe it to him to ask him to stop before you make it official.

Persistently annoying prats aren't owed anything, imo - but yeah, suggesting to the guy that he might like to consider ceasing and desisting is worth a shot.

Further update.

He has cemented exactly what I thought of him. In a conversation he was casually talking about the recoil you get from shooting a gun. He was talking about how he and his dad still go out hunting and to the shooting range regularly, etc.

It is increasingly clear to me that he has a very conservative, very religious, very hick family and he tries to repress his obvious gayness by getting a wife and cranking out the babies.

But he's so fucking gay.

I'm honestly more annoyed and upset with his general lifestory and direction than the fact that he's desperate for some man ass.

15-07-2009, 23:56:01
As for why he was talking about the guns and such, he found out I was from Calgary (in Alberta, what is known in Ontario as a redneck/hick/gunhappy province) from one of the chatty middle-aged women so I guess he was trying to engage me in some kind of "mutual interest discussion" in addition to proving his manliness.

Unfortunately, I hate guns and I think it's a sign of cowardice to need to shoot guns on a regular basis to feel mighty. :mad:

And as for the plan of action -- I'm holding out for now.

My group at work is being elevated from a "hiding in the corner" skunkworks operation to an official, expanded role as "Research & Development". This means we're moving up several floors away from the Marketing department and with the IT Department, for "Synergy" purposes (we build the apps, they maintain them and deploy them).

As a result, within a matter of weeks I'll be several floors away from this creep instead of several cubicles, and will have no official work interaction with him either. I just need to wait this out.

you seem to be creating this situation as a way to subconsciously entertain yourself at work

16-07-2009, 03:10:09
It is happening, not being created.

16-07-2009, 04:03:55
The problem he poses IS happening, true... but your own mental stress is being created, by Asher.

Thats the very basics of trolling, id think you would know that of all people. It happens IRL too.

16-07-2009, 04:07:38
I'm not stressed by it. I'm creeped out. He's creepy.

16-07-2009, 06:21:17
you are raped

16-07-2009, 06:30:11
Stop teasing him. Give him your man ass.

16-07-2009, 06:32:26
I'll fart in his face

A little more action, and I'd say Asher is chanelling paiktis.

16-07-2009, 12:10:59
MORE action? The guy is coming inside his cube!

16-07-2009, 12:18:16
the temerity of actually coming into your cube. astonishing.

as a matter of interest what are the dimensons of personal space in canada?

Depends how big his cube is.

My cube is about 5 by 3 meters.


16-07-2009, 14:09:32
That's massive.

16-07-2009, 14:25:56
Yes, I am considered a manager so I get a nice double-cube.

16-07-2009, 14:42:21
maybe you could get a moat built around it

16-07-2009, 14:47:55
murder holes ftw.

16-07-2009, 15:00:48
At IBM, our cubes had sliding doors which was nice. I just need one of those.

I could make a door with cut up cardboard boxes maybe...

go for the bead curtain, if that doesn't work for you, you can always remove them quickly

I'm sure by now Asher has pictures of his co-worker in assless chaps. ;)
