    So I finally made the big move to the city. Got a top floor besit 2 mins walk from my best friend, 5 mins from city centre and cinema etc.

    All was looking okay. The only downside seemed to be the landlady had mentioned the guy below me was a bit nosy and always let them know if there were any problems in the building (so I figured having more than one person to stay was definitely going to be a no no).

    As I was moving in, dragging all my stuff up 5 flights of stairs with the help of only one 50yr old friend of my stepdad, this guy opens his door as i'm carrying a box up and asks if there's anything I need, and if I wanted to come in for some lemonade. I thank him nicely but say i'm fine, thinking he's just being neighbourly.

    Later, I notice something above his door. It's a camera... dude has a camera above his door...

    Okay, that's weird. But the landlady said he's been there for 50 years, so he's obviously allowed it...

    Anyway, I hadn't heard a peep from him since, so thought he was just one of those guys who is super paranoid and just likes to watch what's going on... which is still creepy, but I could deal with that.

    Then tonight, I nipped round the corner for a pizza. On my way past I noticed his door was open a crack. Then as i'm going up the stairs some more, he says from his doorway 'Can I have a slice of that?'

    I frown, and say 'What, my pizza?'

    He doesn't answer. Instead he says, gesturing inside with his hand 'Would you like to come in and enjoy yourself?'

    To which I reply 'No, i'm fine actually' and make my way upstairs.

    Am I totally over reacting if the first thing I thought was 'I have to move out...'? :(

    It doesn't help that last year a girl died in this city after inviting her neighbour in for a bit of her pizza. He raped and strangled her :(

    Tell your landlady. If things continue, threaten to call the cops on him. If he still doesn't stop...call the cops.

    Easey-peasey.

    If he's 50ish...it's creepy. If he's 70ish...he may just want to hang out.

    I'm not sure how old he is. He LOOKS 50ish, so the landlady may have been exaggerating how long he's been there. He's ginger with round glasses, but fairly stocky.

    And you can totally tell the diff between when someone is being creepy and when someone is just being neighbourly... that was pure creepy.

    I always think calling the cops or even having anyone 'tell him off' will make something like that worse. He'd just deny it, they'd tell him not to be a naughty boy anymore, and then maybe next time he sees me coming he'd not just ASK me in for pizza...

    Yeah I think i'm gonna call the landlady tomorrow and just say 'what did you mean by nosy?' and ask if there have been similar problems with him before.

    If he creeps you out once more, I'd call the cops on him. Now a days you can never be too careful.

    Girl. And yeah, maybe he's not. Maybe he just hits on me a couple of times and then jacks off everytime I walk past his camera as a consolation...

    Still don't like it :(

    Schloss, you're terrible :p

    Are you good looking? And more importantly...are you adult? If he is in his 50s and you are like...15 or 16, I would definatly call the cops on him.

    Unlike the rest here, I don't say call the cops, simply because there's nothing they can do unless he does something more incriminating than just seeming like a creepy pervert.; just keep the landlady in the know of the situation.

    Okay, that's two of you claiming to be my pervert... :p

    WWSCD? Well he'd probably be the guy with the camera outside his door infairness... :hehe:

    But yeah, I guess I shouldn't freak myself out yet. I mean, there are other people in the building, and he's obviously been there a long time and never done anything to anyone.

    I just hope i'm not the one he crosses that line for...

    Welcome to the big city! He's probably just loney, doubt he's dangerous.

    The camera could just be for security. But that other stuff is a little creepy.

    Who the hell puts a camera above their door for security anyway?

    The door has a peephole... surely that's enough!

    Peep holes don't help if someone breaks in when you're not home.

    Definitely weirded out by that. :dry: I'd make a "journal" of sorts of the incidents to log them and also keep the landlady informed. You know yourself better than any of us do; if something just really pushes it and makes you scared, call the Cops.

    I learned through movies that we can't use peepholes anymore. Bad guy or anti-hero might shoot a bullet through it...maybe he is paranoid like I am.

    Enter The Paranoia Madness. :wow:

    Enter The Conspiracy Madness Zone :wow:

    Those make you laugh? If so, I'll change my name..
