Don’t want to get too much into details, but basically I met this lady at church and to tell the truth, she kind of just bothers me and is a little strange. She has health issues, and lives in an assisted living (She’s in her 40s). She started calling me a lot at first, and I would answer and talk … She talks for a loong time also. I guess it was fine, but then she said something very weird about people of our nationality (Chaldean)… Except she’s half (not 100%). I don’t know word for word, but she was telling me how someone told her or she heard that Chaldeans are the chosen people and that when the world ends they will stay on earth, resurrected… Honestly I’m not exactly sure, but it was along those lines. And I got offended, even though I’m Chaldean … Because to me she’s basically saying as long as your Chaldean you’re going to go to Heaven. So, I expressed my thought, and told her that’s not true etc, and she started making this weird laughing and just kept laughing more and louder (she’s very loud by the way). It was obnoxious, and I didn’t like it. I ended the conversation and that was it. I didn’t really feel the need in talking to her over the phone or being close with her (we have nothing in common anyway).
I was ignoring her calls after that, and she still continued calling and calling, leaving me numerous voicemails. She even went to my cousin at church on Sunday (she doesn’t know her, but knows her name bc i mentioned it) to ask her what happened to me. My cousin and her mom and sister run the gift shop on Sundays, so she found her.
It’s hard to explain her and how she is, but I’m sure she’s just lonely and wants a friend. But, she’s too much.
I liked going to the church I typically go to on Saturdays alone, and now I feel like i can’t anymore bc I’ll either have to pick her up or drop her to the assisted living (she does not drive, but the place is very close to the church). Sometimes she just talks too much, and she talks loud in the church. Also, she acts strange … Like she’ll look or just stare and then smile.
Is it wrong to ignore her when she calls? I have her email, so I email sometimes instead of calling her back.
What would some of you do in this situation?
