your letter live on the air. It just like we're
going to read this one right here, right now. That's

(00:21):
for you, Jay could be yours. You never know.

Speaker 2 (00:23):
All right, ladies and gentlemen, it is that time. It's
time for the Strawberry Letter.

Speaker 1 (00:26):
Well, my great friend Shirley Strawby, thank you, my friend
junior subject. I was in the closet the whole time,
do Stephen, Shirley. I'm twenty eight years old, and I've
had the worst dating history of all my friends. I
was recently dating a guy that told me he had
a stalker and we had to lay low for a
while until she left him alone. I understood why he

(00:49):
might have a stalker because he is fine and sexy
with a ball head and a full beard. He's thirty
six years old, so I was intrigued by dating an
older man for the first time. I had been to
his home a few times and it was very nice,
so I asked him who helped him decorate it. He
said his mother used to be an interior designer, so

(01:10):
she helped him out. We primarily spend time at my apartment, though,
because his house was way in the suburbs. All of
these red flags were popping up, but I overlooked them
because I wanted this to work out. I gave him
the benefit of the doubt. Last weekend, we had planned
to see Frankie, Beverly and Mays in concert, and he
had a car service picked me up first and then

(01:34):
and then pick him up. He told me to come
in so we could have a drink before we left.
We started fooling around and he took me into one
of the guest bedrooms, which I thought was weird. As
I got naked, I heard a woman's voice. He picked
me up, wrapped me in the sheets, and put me
in walk in closet and said he thinks his stalker

(01:54):
is in the house and I need to stay in
the closet and be quiet because she's crazy. I could
faintly hear him asking the woman to go to the
concert with him, and then silence. Fifteen minutes later, he
texted me and asked me to make up the bed
and get ano uber and he'd explain things later. I
left the room a mess, and I left. He had

(02:17):
been calling me NonStop. He's been calling me NonStop, but
I won't answer. And why did he force me in
the closet and leave? Should I hear him out or
keep ignoring him?

Speaker 2 (02:27):
No?

Speaker 1 (02:27):
What you should do right now is run, run, run run. Okay,
there's nothing to explain. What can he explain? I mean,
your red flags were right, they were real, and since
you chose to ignore them because you said you wanted
to work it out. You wanted this to work out
with this guy. God did you a favor and allowed
that to happen. Okay, it was either his wife or

(02:50):
his girlfriend, his living girlfriend in the house. And that's
all you need to know. What else do you need
to know? I can't believe how stupid and reckless he
was to put you in harms way like that his
stalker was in the house. But then again I can
because he sounds selfish and he sounds like a liar. Anyway,
the best thing that could have happened to you was leaving,

(03:13):
was him leaving you in that closet. So please let
him call all day and night. But don't answer that
phone because what can he say? How can he explain
what he did? He can't explain that, there's nothing he
can say. Block him right now, Block him and move
on with your life. And please learn from this experience
the next time your gut starts putting up red flags. Okay, listen, listen, Linda, listen, Steve.

Speaker 2 (03:42):
This is a way. Who are we talking to in
this letter?

Speaker 3 (03:46):
I'm so confused because you're asking questions of Shirley and
I that are so damn obvious. Yeah, I don't even
understand why you need it. When you wrote the letter,
did you eat it back? You didn't answer none of
these questions yourself. I was in the closet the whole time.

(04:08):
What now, you're twenty eight years old single, I've had
the worst dating history of all my friends. Well let
me tell you why. Based on this letter right here,
I think the reason you've had the worst dating experience
of all your friends is because you're slow. You're slow,
young lady. You're just slow.

Speaker 1 (04:27):
You really want to use that word, No.

Speaker 2 (04:29):
That's the word I want to use. You're just slow.

Speaker 3 (04:32):
I'm just saying that you're you're you're slow to come
to terms with things. You're slow to figure it out.
You're you're you're slow to get the point. You're you're
you're you're you're you're slow to come to conclusions. I
don't mean like slow in any other way, except you're
slow to come to conclusions.

Speaker 2 (04:55):
It takes you.

Speaker 3 (04:56):
Too long to figure out the obvious. You need to
become a quicker person. You're too damn slow. Good, I
mean so looking at that, that's why you have the
worst dating experience.

Speaker 2 (05:09):
I recently dating a guy that told me he had
a stalker.

Speaker 3 (05:12):
Okay, let's keep this in mind now, and we had
to lay loaf for a while until she left him alone.
Where wit Wait, So we just met and we got
to lay low for a while until she leave him alone. Okay,
then why don't we do this right here when you

(05:34):
get rid of the stalker and the coast is clear,
so I don't get myself in a dangerous situation.

Speaker 2 (05:40):
Why don't you.

Speaker 3 (05:40):
Get that figured out and then call me after you
got the restraining orders and everything from the police department.
But oh no, you slow to come to that. I
came to it right after I read the letter. Surely
came to it. Everybody listened and came to this, but
you slow, so now y'all gonna lay loaf for a while.
I understood why he might have a stalker because he

(06:03):
find it sexy with a ball head and a full bed.

Speaker 2 (06:05):
That's why you got a stalker. That's what you came to.

Speaker 3 (06:10):
You got a stalker because you ball head and you
find it.

Speaker 2 (06:14):
You understood that. Okay, what how did you come.

Speaker 3 (06:19):
To understand that just because he got a ball head
and he fined.

Speaker 2 (06:23):
He fined too. Who tell you?

Speaker 3 (06:29):
Obviously the stalker don't feel that way because the stalker
trying to kill him.

Speaker 1 (06:36):
So hold on, Steve. We'll have part two of Steve's
response coming up at twenty three minutes after the hour.
Today's Strawberry letter, subject I was in the closet the
whole time. We'll get back into it right after this.
You're listening Morning show, all right, Come on, Steve, let's

(06:56):
recap today's Strawberry letter. And the subject is I was
in the closet the whole time.

Speaker 3 (07:02):
This is such a saying because you know, the subject is,
I was in the closet the whole time. And when
I said earlier and I explained myself. What I mean
by saying she's slow, I'm saying that she is slow
to come to conclusions. She's slow to reach certain points
of understanding. The girl is just slow to this, and

(07:25):
the rest of us is reading this letter, we're getting
it right away.

Speaker 2 (07:28):
Yeah, but it's happened to Hunt. She's slow to all
of this.

Speaker 3 (07:32):
So now she's twenty eight years old, got the worst
day in the history of all my friends.

Speaker 2 (07:36):
I think it's cause she's slow.

Speaker 3 (07:38):
I was recently dating a guy that told me he
had a stalker and we had to lay loaf for
a while until she left him alone. Okay, cool, First
things first, get rid of your stalk and call me
so you don't put me in an uncompromising position. Let
me know when everything is clear, when you got a
police you know, restraining order and everything you need from
the courts, or she get arrested and something there and

(07:59):
call me. They're cool, but you ain't do that because
you understood why he might have a stalker because he.

Speaker 2 (08:05):
Find it sexy with a bald head and a full bed.
That's it.

Speaker 3 (08:10):
So if you ball hit it fine sexy and got
a full bed, you gonna have stalkers.

Speaker 2 (08:19):
That's all to that. Maybe you don't know that you're
gonna have a stalker.

Speaker 3 (08:24):
So now he's thirty six years old, So I was
intrigued by dating an older man for the first time.
You're twenty eight, thirty six, ain't no older man. That's
eight years. Oh my god, you're not only slow, you
can't do arithmetic. It's eight years, little girl, that ain't

(08:44):
an older man, that ain't even ten.

Speaker 2 (08:48):
You frustrated? Did you just sigh? Now listen to this. Now.

Speaker 3 (08:54):
I had been to his home a few times and
it was very nice. Wait a minute out, he just
told you we're gonna have to lay.

Speaker 2 (09:02):
Load for a while.

Speaker 3 (09:04):
But noah, no, no, you done been to his home
a few times and it was very nice. So I
asked him who helped him decorate it. He said his
mother used to be an in tear designer, so she
helped him out.

Speaker 2 (09:16):
That sounds good. That's okay, I ain't tripping on that.

Speaker 3 (09:21):
We primarily spend time in my apartment though, because his
house was way in the suburbs.

Speaker 2 (09:27):
Okay, so your house is where.

Speaker 3 (09:29):
If his house is way in the suburbs, your house
is where.

Speaker 2 (09:35):
So obviously this.

Speaker 3 (09:37):
Was like too long of a drive for y'all. I
would go on and take the time for the nice
house long drive. We can talk, get to know each other.
But oh that's right, y'all can't be seen together because
y'all got to lay low because he got a stalker.
And then she says, all these red flags were popping up,
but I overlooked him because I wanted this to work out.

(10:00):
A lady came on my show one time and said
the best line I heard about red flags.

Speaker 2 (10:04):
She said, ladies, stop collecting red flags.

Speaker 3 (10:09):
Stop collecting You see all we red flags pop up,
go the other way.

Speaker 2 (10:13):
Stop collecting them.

Speaker 3 (10:15):
But you know why she was collecting them, because she
wanted this to work out. I gave him the benefit
of the doubt, the benefit of the doubt. Last weekend
we had planned to see Frankie Beverly Mays in concert
and he had a conservice picked me up first and
then picked him up. No problem with that. He told
me to come in so we can have a drink
before we left. We started fooling around and he took

(10:37):
me into one of the guests bedrooms, which I thought
was weird. Which took your ass in there?

Speaker 2 (10:42):
Anyway? See it was weird. See you a little slow,
but let me tell you how quick you get over stuffed.

Speaker 3 (10:50):
As I got naked.

Speaker 2 (10:58):
He told me to come in so we can have
a dream.

Speaker 3 (11:01):
We started fooling around, and he took me into one
of the guests bedrooms, which.

Speaker 2 (11:05):
I thought was weird. So as I got naked, the
next line he got over that week.

Speaker 3 (11:15):
You got you got real good, real fast.

Speaker 2 (11:20):
This wein bedroom down the hallway.

Speaker 3 (11:24):
Let me go get these clothes off before I figured
this out. As I got naked, I heard a woman's voice.

Speaker 2 (11:32):
He picked me up, wrapped.

Speaker 3 (11:34):
Me in the sheets, and put me in a walk
in closet and says he thinks his stalker is in
the house, and I need to stand in the closet
and be quiet because she crazy.

Speaker 1 (11:47):
What what?

Speaker 3 (11:52):
Wait a minute, you got naked. You hear a woman's voice.
He picked you up, wrap you in the sheet, your
flow ass to the closet. You standing there, moneyfied, yes,
wrapped up tight. Probably wrapped your mouth up too, so
you couldn't say nothing. Now you in there looking like

(12:12):
a full blown money in a tumbe, and you hear
a woman's voice.

Speaker 2 (12:17):
He told you be quiet. Of course she crazy?

Speaker 3 (12:20):
Right after he said that, I could faintly hear him
asking the woman to go to the concert with him,
and then silence. Who takes a stalker to see Frankie Beverly?

Speaker 2 (12:34):
You know how hard it is to enjoy a show
if somebody standing next to you trying to kill you.
I can't believe this. I took a murderer with me
to the concert? What easy?

Speaker 3 (12:52):
And he starts his concert with we all won, we
gotta go.

Speaker 2 (13:01):
I got to come.

Speaker 3 (13:01):
Back and give you just my last piece of this
right here. You know, it's a lot of slow people listening.

Speaker 1 (13:09):
All right, We'll be back with part three of the
Strawberry Letter for today. Yeah, at forty six minutes after
right after this, you're listening morning show, all right? Because
this letter is so crazy, Steve had to do a
part three.

Speaker 3 (13:25):
I'm gonna just go over this real quick. This woman
that don't know how to figure stuff out to meet
this man that they started dating. She twenty eight thirty
six told him we got layload because I got stocked. Okay,
so now we went out to his house and he
got a real nice house. She asked me how he
decorated how I told her. He told her my mama
was decorating. She helped her, but his house way out

(13:46):
in the suburbs. So we spend all the time at
my apartment because don't nobody want to drive nowhere to
no nice house.

Speaker 2 (13:53):
We just better stay over here in the hood and
do our business, you know.

Speaker 3 (13:58):
And so now, okay, so now he invited you to
go to Frankie Beverly concert and he had a conservice
pick you up. He told me come in, so we
have a drink and we started fooling around, and then
he took me to one of the guest bedrooms, which
I thought was weird, you know. But then as I
got naked, but she gets over stepped real fast in
this level yard. It's just ooh, it is weird. Let

(14:20):
me take these clothes off. And so she took a
clothes off. I heard a woman's voice. He picked me up,
wrapped me in the sheets, and put me in the
walk in closet and said he thinks his stalker is
in the house and I need to stand in the
closet and be quiet because she crazy. All right now,
now you mummified. You wrapped up real tight, and he
even wrapped your mouth, your head up.

Speaker 2 (14:41):
You, and that can't do number.

Speaker 3 (14:42):
See, he left a little slit so you could see that's.

Speaker 2 (14:46):
All it was.

Speaker 3 (14:48):
And then you could faintly hear him asking the woman
to go to the concert with him, and then silence.
So you telling me that the stalker then broke in,
and his to calm the craziest stalker down is to
invite her to Frankie bevet Maids once again. Do you
know how hard it is to enjoy a concert standing

(15:12):
there next to somebody trying to kill?

Speaker 2 (15:15):
That is hard.

Speaker 3 (15:16):
That's some hard ass partying right there, ain't I didn't
been at a party and a shot.

Speaker 2 (15:21):
Rang out and it messed me up.

Speaker 3 (15:24):
I did, I didn't take the murderer with me, and
so then there was silence. And then fifteen minutes later
he text me and asked me to make up the
bed and get in then.

Speaker 2 (15:36):
Uber and he'd explain things later.

Speaker 3 (15:38):
I left the room a message I know that's right, girl,
you better show him and.

Speaker 1 (15:42):
I left him.

Speaker 3 (15:43):
He's been calling me NonStop, but I won't answer. Why
did he force me in the closet and leave? Let
me ask you a question, why you think he forced
you in that clouset? Closset and then leave. Well, let
me just take a look at it how you would
look at it, Because he didn't want you to get
attacked by the stalker that he was finn to take
to the concert with the ticket that he bought for

(16:05):
you and him. So I ain't no need to waste
in this damn ticket. Let me carry his stalker down
