We want you to know this conduct on his part will not be tolerated…. the board kindly asks you… to submit a written statement of the incident… The board is committed to have all residents feel safe and secure.
Then I sent her a way-to-go with my incident statement.
Your attention to this issue is so heartening. I was resigned to having to deal with his behavior myself as I have had to do in the past with other men… it is reassuring to know I'm not alone in resolving the issue and that the association will protect my well-being.
To which she responded with a three-sentence blank stare.
Thank you for your response. I have forwarded it onto the Board as more information on the incident helps with the Board trying to address the issue. If, at any point, you feel threatened I always recommend contacting the police department to address.
The police? What? Where’s the internal commitment to security? Even just one sentence reiterating their dedication to my well-being would have tempered their blow-off, their recommendation to call the police, to cover their asses. That’s all it takes. One sentence to restore a victim’s belief that they were wronged and are protected.
I want to share that distinction with them. But I’ve got a harasser to fend off.
And, sister. You’re no sister.
