    I did search the Flatchat fora before posting to see if anyone else has posted about this :).

    Does anyone experience “sexual harassment” on common property?

    There is a tenant who makes mock noises of appreciation or acceptance when I am unfortunate enough to pass him on the stairwell, as if he were responding to a free sexual advance from me. ”Oooh!” he exclaims suggestively, as if both surprised and pleased at being made an invitation. He also stops and stares at me as I pass in the stairwell, and arranges his body so that his hips and shoulders face me as I pass.

    Until I told him to stop it, if I passed the front door when he was unfortunately passing through it too, he would make an extravagant gesture of bowing and waving me through with a flourish: adding unacceptable courtship or romance to the everyday function of exiting or entering my home.

    Many years ago, before he moved into my building, he “sexually harassed” me on the street by engaging in the extravagant flourishing mentioned above. As he passed me on an empty street he stopped and bowed, flourishing his hand to beckon me to walk past. When he saw me taken aback, he flushed red and started shouting the F and the C word. I wrote the local police at the time, and still have a copy of the letter.

    This month a new owner told me he had approached her and said to her “have you met your neighbour yet?” and proceeded to gossip that I had made noise complaints in the past. A new tenant told me the man advised him not to hang his clothes on the shared washing line as people may steal them, a reference to something I had been falsely accused of years ago by a different harassing neighbour. No one steals clothes for the he washing line.

    Recently, I was exiting the front door while he was out on the street, and he shouted to imaginary people on the street “here she comes!” This was extremely offensive.

    Once, as I passed him on the stairs, he broke wind (flatulated) loudly.

    This behaviour seems to happen on weekends when he is drunk and lonely. He is old and repulsive looking.

    Please no legal advice, I don’t need to be told to get a restraining order, I’d just like to hear from people if they’ve experienced “sexual harassment” or sleaziness on common property.

    Thanks Flatchatters

    Thanks. He doesn’t have a property manager, and I find the few tenants who don’t are often the problem ones.

    Thanks @Sujenna, I’d like to hear your sexual harassment tale, only if you care to share of course.
