In the midst of a busy work day, a man found himself in a rush to drop off a file at the request of his boss. Unknown to him, he parked near where his ex worked, and she noticed his car. She then made a demand which he thought was unfair, here is what he had to say:
The man parked outside of the destination, preparing to deliver the file. Little did he know that this seemingly innocuous act would trigger a series of unexpected events.
Later that evening, a text message lit up on the man’s phone screen, and it was from his ex. The man and his ex-partner had not been in contact for three months, so the message came as a surprise.
The man explained: “They ask why I parked where I did (it is their parking lot for where they work). I had no idea that was the building they worked at”.
Just Dropping Off A File
The man explained that he had just been dropping off a file. “They thought I might have been stalking’, he recounted. “I had merely been going about my day, for my job”.
No Malicious Intent
Despite resistance, the man maintained that he had no ulterior motives in mind when he parked there. It was merely a matter of convenience in the course of his work-related duties.
The man explained that this was not the first time something like this had happened. After the breakup, which had been initiated by the ex, he was explicitly told not to bring dates to a coffee shop where they had both been going for years.
Despite these unexpected and somewhat unreasonable requests, the man assured their ex that they would respect their wishes.
A Sense of Unfairness
However, the man still couldn’t shake off the feeling of unfairness that lingered in the air. “I believe it is absolutely unreasonable to tell me where I am allowed to go in my hometown”, he wrote.
Left In A Conundrum
The man was left conflicted. On one side, he felt that it was his right to park wherever he needed, regardless of whether it was in the proximity of his ex. However, he also wished to respect her boundaries and didn’t want to come across as creepy.
The man wondered what he should do, so he headed online, seeking the opinion of internet strangers. To his relief, everyone was quick to defend him: “You broke up… it’s none of your ex’s business where you park, bring your dates in a public place”, one person wrote.
Most readers agreed that the man should take no action, and if his partner was troubled by seeing him, that was their problem. “I guess you will just have to ignore her staring daggers at you over her coffee cup as you dare to go in that coffee shop”, one commenter wrote. “Block her so she can’t further bother you with her little messages.”
Another commenter warned the man, stating that stalking accusations can quickly get out of hand. “It’s not a bad idea to store evidence that you’ve asked her clearly to stop communicating just in case she gets really extreme and tries to involve the police in a stalking accusation”, they wrote.
Maybe She’s The Stalker
To the man’s surprise, one reader even suggested that he should be the one to be concerned about stalking. “Check your car very carefully for tracking devices”, they warned.
