The Hey Guy.

I have been wanting to write about a person since many months. It happens every time I hear from him but it slips out of my mind the very next day.
Having been a part of the Facebook world, I have observed that there are usually three kinds of people who appear online on messenger.
  1. Those who see your message and go offline immediately.
  2. Those who see your message, remain online and choose to ignore you anyway.
  3. Those who open a small chat with you once in a while.
  4. And then there is this person. Let's call him Mr. X.

Guilty of all of the above mentioned situations, except of course the 4th point.

Mr. X was my classmate in high school. Not a friend, just classmate, like the ones who do not even fall in the category of acquaintances because you know only their names. Never talk to them, never hear their voice.. only their names!

Years ago, I removed him from my friend list for some reason which I gradually forgot. After many months later when I received his request again, I added him and went on with my life. But oh dear god, this guy soon made me realize why I removed him in the first place.

I rarely go online on Facebook because I am not much of a social person. But whenever I go, Mr. X pings me 'Hey'.
Just that!

I see his message and go offline or I see his message and ignore him bluntly, yet he doesn't deter. It's been two years and the trend has continued. I look at the chat history and there is nothing but a series of 'Hey' messages lined up from his side.


It is harmless but at the same time, it is extremely irritating. Like water leaking from the ceiling of your room, drop by drop, testing your patience in every fifty seconds while you sit there cursing it to stop because you just cannot fix it by yourself.

I am extremely curious to know why the hell he is acting like a freak who has no life but there is a part of me which is scared because I don't know what it might stir in the head of an already creepy guy or it might bring down the wall covering some greater menace. So I think I'm just going to wait for him to disappear into oblivion. And that my dear friend, is the master plan.

  2. My first thought was he was trying to say something. But then, if someone's intent is to only convey something they would have done that even if you ignored them. And for 2 years? Man, he is persistent. I would suggest you remove him from your list. Trust me, Vi! Facebook is not what it used to be, not that what is used to be was better. Take care!

    1. Haha..I really don't think he is smitten. He is just exceptionally creepy. I'm sure he sends 'hey' to every other person on his friend list. Maybe he is creepy and lonely. :/

  5. Someone's got an admirer or should I say Virtual Stalker.. :P
    Well I think maybe he's just being friendly, since your duration of coming online is a lot of months.

    You could casually ask him his problem and tell him you aren't interested.
    That would be my course of action. But yeah ignorance too is bliss! :P

  7. No, definitely not an admirer!!! I wouldn't have considered writing this post, had I been thinking of him as an admirer. That is so lame.. hahah!

    I just wanted to share the bizarre behavior which I have never ever seen before. He is the 'Hey guy'

  8. There are some people who would just not give up, no matter how much you ignore them. They are like those pesky flies which zooms around and buzzes in your ears causing just plain irritation. My sympathies. I know it too well. Hilarious post :)
