Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: How to stop stalkers Dear Brother Harvey: I am sick and tired of being stalked. It first happened when I was in my teens and broke up with one of my girlfriends. She chased around a car with a butcher knife screaming, “Why don’t you like me anymore?” in front of my family when we were coming from church. Then again in college my girlfriend came over one night and would not leave! I told her that she could stay the night and leave when I leave for work in the morning, but when I got in from work she was still there. We argued the issue and then she would call at 1 a.m. and just breathe on the phone. She would prank call and threaten to come over at 3 or 4 a.m. This week there is a co-worker of mine who is stalking me. We went out twice and now she is calling and texting me to cause harm. Steve, Oh, Brother Steve, what can a brother do? I’m buying a cane corso pitbull today!
