    Thanks for the responses, everyone. I was very lucky, considering how late it was when that happened (sometime between 10-11pm). He seemed respectful of me, but not everyone is like that. I'll be more prepared the next time something like this happens to me.

    I'm glad you're okay. My friends and I would also memorize a few phone numbers to give to creepy guys that came up to us. One of my friends would also give them the number to a pizza place. I'm still surprised that some people think that following (stalking) someone is a good way to make friends. Some of these guys would even try to hold our hands or put their arms around us. I always try to keep something hard in my purse so I could take a quick swing if I have too and he gets too close. Try to stay near lighted buildings in case you need to run in there. Your story reminds me that I need to get some more pepper spray. I so have a screeching alarm that can be heard for 3 miles on on key chain.

    Onen way to be more prepared is to memorize a fake number and e-mail address, and then give those out to pesky people who you really don't want to contact you.

    If you go to: www.rejectionhotline.com you'll learn all about it.

    The New York City rejection number is: 212-660-2245

    For a fake e-mail just give anyname@evolton.com

    The person who writes you there will get the following response:

    Your email to haejin@ Evolton.com was NOT received! Created by The Rejection Hotline, "Evolton" is actually "Not Love" backwards, so the person who gave you this address really just didn't want to hear from you!

    Damn, that sucks! Hopefully you didn't spend too much time writing your e-mail. That would be a shame if you agonized at your computer, searching for the perfect combination of words to eloquently express your thoughts and feelings... only to find that you were given a bogus e-mail address and nobody will ever read what you wrote!

    Anyway, please accept the fact that you (and your email) were rejected and then GET OVER IT! And if you're still confused, you can call 617-861-3962 for some possible explanations for why you were given a rejection e-mail address.

    Have a nice day/life! - http://www.RejectionHotline.com

    * This email rejection is sponsored by "Get Over It Day" - Seriously, no joke, there's a new holiday coming March 9th: http://www.GetOverItDay.com

    867-5309 is always a fun one to give out. Once when I was in college there was a creepy older guy who frequented the restaurant where I worked. He hit on me a lot and kept asking me out. I finally said "sure, how about the second Tuesday of next week." That wasn't very nice of me but it got him to leave me alone.

    Gabriel I LOVE that song. I am a big Glenn Miller Fan.
    When I was a child, our number was Walnut 9-4959. They changed the WHOLE town's phone system when I was about 8 and everyone got new numbers, but for some inexplicable reason, I can remember that and not the really important stuff, you know?
    And up until I was in highschool we still had party lines and a rotary dial phone. My daughter would not even begin to know what to do with either I would bet.

    Party lines were a trip. We lived in the country and had one for years. My sister's phone number was Vernon (VE) 2-9686 for 50 years. She had to change it due to an idiot neighbor with a barking dog who wouldn't leave her alone.

    My grandmother had a party line. I can remember eavesdropping with my cousin on someone's conversation until my grandmother caught us and shooed us away from the phone.

    I've told this here before, but just have to repeat it. For years my MIL had a party line. She always, always istened to everyone elses calls. One day two ladies were talking and heard someone on the line. One made the comment that it was probably that P---- R--- again. Before she could catch herself she spoke up with "well how'd you know it was me?"

    My grandma had a party line, too. If we had to use the phone, we'd have to get on and ask Bessie, the crazy old neighbor, to get off for a few minutes. She was always on the phone.
