To the point

Some coworkers have no respect and the ones that try to bother you outside of work really need to get a life. I work with someone at various sites and he’s not the most pleasant person to deal with. Very intrusive, ignorant, disrespectful, and aggressive. All he ever does is gossip and give people input on how they should live their lives when he should look after his own life. He kept texting me useless links to some weird sites and I had to squash it. I put my foot down by telling him not to contact me anymore unless if he actually needs coverage for a shift. Don’t bother your colleagues outside of work unless you have something important to say that’s actually work related. In other words, stop wasting my time and yours. Simple as that. Hopefully, he’ll smarten up and get the message. If not, I'm calling the Union.

Buy another phone and make sure this character uses that instead of your real phone.

Time is money. Time is precious. As Burton Cummings once said “No time left for you. On my way to better things.”

Make sure you document everything that was said and done; the name, time and place who said what and so on, etc. It’s best to call the union if you have a serious emergency like for example if your boss is screwing out of your cheque or if you’re being bullied or harassed. Based on your post, it sounds like this guy is harassing you. You did good putting that person in his place. Just see how it goes, but try not to let it bother you in the meantime. Don’t let one bad apple try to spoil your tree of life.

Sadly we all have at least one or two of these fucking assholes to deal with at work. Some of them have been there a long time and hard to get rid of, especially in union work environments. Good on you for standing up for yourself. I would still give your shop steward a heads-up. These fuckers tend to go unreported or underreported and I'd rather that they get the boot sooner rather than later. There are so many work places where these pieces of shit stick around too long and make the work environment toxic for the rest of the team.

Your co-worker is lonely and lacks good judgment. A dime a dozen.
