Today, a guy from work that I barely know gave me sunflowers for my birthday. He told me, "You mentioned they were your favorite." I mentioned it to my family at home a few days ago. FML

I believe he was joking.

OP didn't ask "How did you know that?" Simple catch-all. It could be she mentioned it in the past... Not everyone is a skilled spy capable of bugging people's homes.

#61, agreed. I had a friend who really liked my best friend. They knew each other but weren't quite friends. He asked me how he could get her to notice him and I told him her favorite flower, color, etc. She was a tad weirded at first but grew to be quite fond of him. They're now engaged.. anyway, don't label him as a creep yet, OP! Look for a Rat!!

"If he keeps it up?" He looks like he's been.

(911) "What is your emergency?"
(OP) "My coworker bought me my favorite flowers for my birthday. I have no idea how he knew which ones I liked most!"
(911) "So you would like to report your coworker, for getting you your favorite flowers on your birthday.....?"

I think everyone is saying that because she said she barely knew him and that she only mentioned it to her family. I didn't think about her possibly mentioning it elsewhere where he could have over heard.

Ya, good luck getting a restraining order on someone because a guy gave her flowers on her birthday after mentioning at one point at work they were her favorite.

I hate how people assume he's a creep and a stalker. She probably did mention it and the guy was trying to be nice but in return, he gets labeled as a creep. That's messed up

That's a possibility. OP maybe should have asked when he heard her mention that.

I'd still be a bit unnerved if someone I barely knew gave me something I said once or twice that I liked.

I get the impression that some people who have to attempt to memorize information think that knowing marginally important information is strange because they don't understand it just sticking automatically.
