Oh Dear…

…I work in the barracks.  I deal with soldiers on a daily basis.  In my line of work there are times when my “customers” tend to get attached or fixated on me.  I normally handle these situations professionally and explain to the soldiers that I am here to help them but under no circumstances am I a “friend”.  It has to be that way because I am a female and the Army has rules that have to be followed when dealing with the opposite sex.  There is one soldier that is a bit off-kilter and has fixated on me.  Bottom line…he scares the Hell outta me.  The latest was he asked me to open up his room…being that it is my job that is what I did.  As I was leaving he grabbed me and kissed me on the cheek.  RED FLAG! DANGER! LINE CROSSED!Seriously freaked me out…I was so stunned I just vacated the room as quickly as I could and went home.  I let my co-workers know what happened…and they agreed that he had crossed the line big time.  Ever since then he was hanging around the office…like a puppy.  I have always tried to make it so I am never alone with him…and it worked out fine until I noticed that he would talk to me about inappropriate things…like being accused of wanting to rape a girl.

Yeah…I know.  Total freak case.  My co-worker (a male) decided that it was time for him to have a talking to.  Apparently this upset the soldier…but I am glad that a male talked to him.  He pretty much was told that my husband outranks him by a mile and if I got my husband involved…he wouldn’t win the case.  I hope this stops all the foolishness that is happening…and I hope he doesn’t see fit to retaliate against me.   The troop knows that we will get the chain of command involved if he comes in here for anything other than business purposes.  This is the first time that I have ever felt that uncomfortable at work.  I hope this is the last….I don’t want to have to break my foot off in someones ass….seriously.
