Don’t call me again

A jilted woman phones her ex 1,000 times a day.

Topics: Sex, Love and Sex,

How far would you go to be with your ex-lover? We’ve all been guilty at one time in our lives of committing some mild juvenile-type stalking of exes. Who hasn’t driven past the house where they live? Or looked them up on the Internet? Or (in the days before caller ID) called their number and then hung up? One woman in Hong Kong recently got a little carried away with a campaign to win back her ex-boyfriend, to the tune of 1,000 phone calls per day.

According to a report in the Apple Daily newspaper, the woman has harassed her ex for three years with phone calls. Her determined pursuit to win back his love first began in 1997, after the man, who is married and identified only as Cheung, refused to live with the woman.

Buried under the siege of phone calls, the man attempted everything to shake the girl. He switched jobs; he changed his telephone, cell and pager numbers. But the woman tracked down his new numbers and continued pestering him, upping the ante with up to 500 faxes per day.

On New Year’s Day, Cheung answered a knock on the door of his home, and found the woman there, demanding he pay her money. Police then arrested Cheung, acting on a complaint from the woman, who said he had hit her. He was later released on bail, and if he’s smart at all, he should get the hell out of Hong Kong.

We can conclude two things from this tale. The guy is either extremely nice or extraordinarily well endowed, and she clearly doesn’t have enough to do at her job.
