Long and actually quite petty so please bare with me.

Yesterday I rang up a local butty shop and ordered four butties. On my way down to collect them we got a call from the hospital ( dads been in a car accident, was in a coma, had woke up ) So, i completely forgot about the butties and we went straight to the hospital.

Just as we got to the hospital i checked my phone and had 3 missed calls off the butty shop. Then they rang again and i answered and they played a recording of "Taken" with the man saying " I will find you and I will kill you" I put the phone down and went to the ward my dads on.

As id sat down with my dad i got 6 withheld calls all straight after each other. Then a mobile number text me saying " I will find you". I turned my phone off spent an gour with my dad and then had to leave.

When i got home i turned my phone back on, id missed 7 more withheld calls. I put the mobile number ibto facebpok and immidiatly phone out who it was.

So i text the number and said " womans name, i kniw who you are thanks to facebook, fuck off ringing me and delete my number you silly girl "

Yes i shouldnt of swore but id veen in hospital with my dad im 9 weeks pregnant i do not need constant phone calls because i didnt pick up four butties. This girls facebook showed she worked at butty shop and is no coincidence i got withheld numbers and whatnot after butty shop rang back.

Anyesy, the phone calls carry on all night, im not exagerating when i say ive had 25 in total. Her boyfriend dtarted ringing me abusing me aswell.

Woukd i be un reasonabke to report this to the police? Might seem petty vut after the day id had i ended up bursting ibto tears. Im under a lot of stress at the minute with my dad and my unborn baby.

Im tempted to go down to the butty shop and have words but as they have my number and iv already been harrassed i dont want it to xontinue. Any advice please?

Go to the police - or call 101 and ask advice.

Phone the non-emergency number. They are out of order.

I agree with YouTheCat, 101 is the best thing to do. Their behaviour is unacceptable and is nothing more than cowardly bullying. Sorry for the shit you're going through at the moment, you don't need this.

Police. It is outrageous. They haven't even made one reasonable attempt to find out why you didn't collect, they haven't even asked for payment, they are just being abusive and threatening.

So sorry about your father by the way, I hope he recovers well.

Storm into the shop and ask the owner. If these are 'employees' they wn't be for much longer. Report to police though !!!

Busymumto3dc Fri 06-Jun-14 15:37:36

101 and contact the owner of the shop

TBH I'd speak to the shop owner before the police. What a silly girl.

I hope your dad is on the mend.

Go to the shop and report to the owner.

Thank you, my dads ok. Cant remember being in an accident but thats to be exopected with a bleed on the brain. But hes alive.

I think im judt going to go straight to the police, im not too sure if owner is aware of whats going on as the girl obvipudly got my number from the shop phone.

Im only young myself and I assume shop owner is as nasty as her employee. I could well be wrong but after yesterday im not up for being abused again. Will speak to the police, thanks for your replies x

God no don't get involved with shop just go strait to the police that is shocking.

grocklebox Fri 06-Jun-14 16:41:51

Yes, ring, thats insane.

Erm, can I ask what a butty is though? Not that it really matters but I'm trying to work out if you ordered something expensive or what....?

A sandwich.

OP - call the police, really.

whitepuddingsupper Fri 06-Jun-14 16:43:38

YANBU I hope at the least that employee loses her job and hopefully gets charged with something too. I would seriously think about changing my phone number if she's got other people calling you now too, what a spiteful weirdo.

SandorClegane Fri 06-Jun-14 16:44:05

A sandwich.

SandorClegane Fri 06-Jun-14 16:44:28

Also yes, phone the police that's crazy.

grocklebox Fri 06-Jun-14 16:50:47

A sandwich? Well thats even crazier! How much can a few sandwiches have cost them? Nothing really. I thought they must be really out of pocket to even contemplate this weird behavior.

Rhine Fri 06-Jun-14 16:51:10

All of this happened because you didn't pick up four sandwiches?

Petrasmumma Fri 06-Jun-14 16:56:13

Yes, speak with the Police. This is harassment and they usually pay someone a visit in short order for something like this.

Sherlockmaystealyourpug Fri 06-Jun-14 17:02:29

Sorry you are having to deal with silly, abusive, immature idiots at a time like this op, I am not surprised you burst into tears. Please do report to 101. I do hope your dad makes a speedy recovery.

YouAreMyFavouriteWasteOfTime Fri 06-Jun-14 17:13:14

their reaction sounds very OTT.

I wonder if someone has been targeting then with fake orders. I would call 101 and say you want to pay for the sandwiches (you do owe them money) but you are afraid to go to the shop.

Call the police.

Shakey1500 Fri 06-Jun-14 18:35:55
