So I had a friend who asked for advice on dealing with a gentleman who can’t take “no” for an answer. One of my lovely characters, who likes to butt into other people’s conversations, passed along some advice in the following conversation:
Friend: Okay I have a problem. I have a stalker that just wont get the hint that I am not interested in him that way. I’ve tried being mean and it didn’t work. I don’t know what to do. He is really getting on my nerves. Girl I was straight to the point – blunt even – and he said “I love when you get mad. Its so cute.”
Character: See..you can’t get mad. You have to be very seductive about it. Get nice and close and let him know in your sweetest voice that you have a thing for Lorena Bobbitt, you’ve picked up a number of tips from her, and you’d love to try them out on him. Then smile and walk away.
Don’t know if she minds taking advice from the imaginary people in my head (I am probably going to pay for that comment later) but I hope it helps someone.
