    Default Police won't help - what do I do?

    What do you do if you're getting stalked?

    It started in Homebase, a local hardware store. I saw two of them looking at me from just behind the reduced section. I kept walking, innocently looking for suitable orchid bark. But I couldn't find any.

    Next thing, I see them in my car, and I think I heard whispering. I kept driving, trying to act normal.

    Now I come upstairs to the bedroom, and open my laptop amidst the mess from me packing (I'm moving house). They are still watching me with curious gazes, except now they are blatant enough to pose for a camera shot!!!!


    WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN ORCHIDS FOLLOW YOU HOME?!?!

    (And can anyone tell me anything about them? I have seen a link to phal fact sheets, are there any others?)

    These are dendrobiums and I think of the phalaenanthe class. As for a specific name... for now it is a NOID

    Ah, but "NOID" is such a disparaging term. Just look at them; they are mysterious, alluring, beautiful ladies of unknown origin. Lovely.

    WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN ORCHIDS FOLLOW YOU HOME
    Thats easy. I just show them dozens of pictures of dead orchids and the stalkers usually export themselves to another country.

    BTW, thats a cute dendrobium you have there.
