Todays OPP comes from Laurie...
Yi! I’ve been getting flowers and cards lately from a “secret admirer” and it’s really starting to irritate me. Whoever it is keeps sending things to my office with notes like, “Do you have any idea how beautiful you are?” and “You make me happy every day.” My co-workers think this is sweet, but I’m really annoyed. I HATE surprises and if this is someone I work with, I feel like it’s borderline harassment. What the heck do I do to stop this crap?
Slacker thinks this is a control thing in a weird way. By keeping you in the dark they are staying above you in the game. He says it can be intimidating and he doesn't like it. Slacker also thinks it's pathetic and Steve agrees. He compared it to someone sending you a card saying that they can see you with binoculars...that wouldn't be okay. Steve thinks that only people below your league do this. It makes them a mystery and more desirable. Steve also doesn't understand why people do this...how are you supposed to get anything started with an admirer and you don't know who they are?
What do you think she should do to stop it?
