The woman wrote, “Around the end of last year, one of the local fast food places started doing deliveries, and I took advantage of the convenience.”

“Because I live in a small town, most of the time, it was the same delivery guy, Ronald, bringing my food,” she added. “And to begin with, it was fine. I’d smile, say hello, thank you, take my food, and all’s good.”

The woman got COVID. She had a nasty cough and a hoarse voice. When Ronald came to drop off the deliveries, he seemed concerned for the woman.

Ronald professed that he cared for the woman. She said it was a bit awkward, but she just figured he was being nice. However, things were set to take a sinister twist.

The woman is a night owl. One night, around 3 a.m., she was awake reading. She heard a knock at the door. It was Ronald. He was drunk and swaying around at her door.

She chatted with him for a few minutes because she wasn’t the type for confrontation. When Ronald asked to come in, she told him no. He left, but she was a bit spooked out.

The woman decided that she would stop ordering from the restaurant. She didn’t see Ronald for a few months until he turned up one night drunk at 2 a.m. and started knocking on her door. She didn’t answer, and once more, he slunk off into the night, muttering to himself.

Third time’s a charm

As the months passed, she forgot all about the strange delivery guy. But he was persistent. He turned up once more, shortly before midnight. She didn’t open the door but instead told him she’d call the police if he didn’t leave. Once more, he left.

Not worried

The woman wasn’t worried that Ronald would do anything. However, she was deeply uncomfortable about his visits. She considered her options.

Choices, choices

She figured that one option she had was to call his work and explain the situation. Yet she didn’t really want to harm his livelihood. Her other option was to go to the police and tell them what had happened.

She went to the police. Unfortunately, they said they couldn’t do much, but they advised her to get a security camera and keep them informed.

Was she right?

She was upset by Ronald’s behavior, but she did not tell his place of work. She wondered if she was too soft on him, so she wrote on an internet forum to get a second opinion.

One poster said, “Honey, you have a stalker. PLEASE report him.”

While another declared, “Get cameras and then call his work so his actions will be documented. He only got your address because of his job, so this is definitely work-related, and they would probably like to know! Stay safe, please!”
