I Think I’m Too Nice for My Own Good

I’m beginning to think I’m too nice for my own good. Why? I will use today as an example. There is this creepy, old guy who keeps coming to the store and asking for free samples of ice cream. At first I was fine with the idea of him coming by; I got a break from working and doing “chores” to hear a joke or two while he sampled ice cream. After a while, this guy kept coming by, and he told dirtier and dirtier jokes. Now he’s been asking if I’ll join him for coffee in the food court. He also never buys anything. Dang nab it! I am really getting scared and angry, but I’m too kind to ask him to leave or to call security on him. My co-worker today started by telling him only one sample and asked if he was going to buy anything today. He said he’d think about it, but we both (my co-worker and I) knew he wasn’t going to buy anything. He took one sample and left for a bit; then he came back again and wanted to know when I’d be off so we could get coffee together. I said I was sorry but I was closing tonight (it was a lie, but what could I say; I don’t think this guy is good news). Finally, he left and my co-worker and I decided I’m going to have to put my foot down and actually either call security or ask the man to leave. At this point, I really don’t know what I’ll do, but I have to do something or he’s just going to keep coming by and harassing me. I’m using the word harassing because that word means “to continually bother or pester, etc.” I think this qualifies as harassment. I just feel I’m too nice for my own good here. I mean the guy’s probably lonely, but on the other hand, this is just too much for me maybe I do need to stop this before it gets way out of control. :-/

Well, that’s enough for tonight and what’s weighing on my mind. I’m sorry if it’s a little depressing or worrisome, but I think it’s something that warrants attention to some extent and I should really do something about it. 😐

Love and prayers!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
