Stalking – the hula hoop of the 2010 decade?

By troll-sniffer - 19 December 2011 47

I’m like following the two like totally Gen Y young women near the Canberra Centre and like I wasn’t like listening but they were like talking pretty loud so I overheard, and like one says to the other: “I can’t believe it.  She’s stalking him.  They like split up 18 months ago and she’s still like stalking him. She rang him up the other day and like asked him if he wanted to meet for a coffee. Can you believe that?”

“Yeah, that’s like so totally wrong.  Like you guys have been going out for 18 months and she’s still like stalking him.  He oughta take out an AVO on the cow.”

Hey Gen Y bimbos… here’s a tip.  A phone call, or even keeping in contact with, or even trying to stay in contact with someone, does not constitute ‘stalking’. 

It’s almost as though being stalked is the new cool, that it somehow confers on the stalkee an air of mystery or desire, that unless you’re being stalked or have been stalked, you’re like such a loser.

What’s Your opinion?

Have you ever noticed how you never get a good looking stalker? They’re always unwashed dirty and mentally ill.

Please don’t flatter yourself darling. I’m sure that bloke was just simply walking the same route you were and lived nearby. If it made you feel special that’s okay though we can pretend.

I am sick of people using ‘mentally ill’ as a put down.

Nice way to pass judgement on an entire generation based on the banal conversation of one particularly unintelligent part of it.

The young people of today have to be the most unpleasant crew yet. Idle and nasty.

Blame their nasty, lazy, insufferably greedy parents.

A very good point.

Can’t see how meeting for a coffee is stalking. Tapping someones phone so you can tag along when they meet someone else sure.

Maybe ‘stalking’ is the new word for ‘he’s still having sex with his x-girlfriend’

Yes it is. Yes they do. You are not a loser. Unbelievable………………

Take the conversation with a grain of salt (or a lump of 2×4 to your head). Protip: Kids are melodramatic.

+1, the kids probably don’t even know what AVO stands for.

Ahh, the same old chestnut as found on the walls of the pyramids.

The difference between stalking and not stalking is how attractive you are.

No, how attractive you are is the difference between sexual harrassment and “OMG, Steve from accounts was just flirting with me. He’s totes hot and stuff”.
