They send you Christmas cards that go straight to the recycle bin. You’re excessively polite with them because you don’t know what they’ll do if you upset their imbalanced minds. They’re loners who can’t make it with people. But they can hack into your social media, email, whatever.
They’re a different kind of stalker. Disturbed cowards that don’t do anything in public for all to see. But behind the scenes, they’re watching your every electronic move… literally addicted to you in the worst possible way.
Selfish and self-centered, they never stop to think that maybe you’re onto them. And that it is disturbing to be spied on… not to mention illegal.
They don’t get the psychiatric help they need. They have no problem… As long as they can lurk in the shadows and live out their empty existence by looking at others from the outside. Always from the outside…
Paranoid dystopian future or realistic portrayal of what can happen right now?
Until legally busted, like in this tweeted example, we cannot know. But sometimes my gut makes me wonder. As the old saying goes, truth is often stranger than fiction.
