A few moments ago, my phone rang and when I picked it up, no one was there.
The phone rang again, moments later. I checked the Caller ID and it read "Ron Besendorfer."
After I said, "Hello," the person who I assume was Ron Besendorfer and sounded like him said, "You're harassing my family, buddy."
Besendorfer, of course, is the husband, at the moment, of Joplin R-8 Assistant Superintendent Angie Besendorfer.
He only said a couple of more sentences, which I did not quite understand, but it was something in the nature of "came close to you today."
As I was about to respond, he hung up.
The calls (and the first one may have been from someone else, I did not have time to check the caller ID) came moments after I had been running some errands and buying groceries and supplies at different Joplin locations. I did not remember any particular close calls and I may have misunderstood what he said at the end of the conversation.
I understood the message.
