    Stocking

    Dear teachers

    What does 'He is stocking me' mean? What is 'Stocking'?

    Thanks

    Did you hear it right? Could it have been "He is stalking me"? As Tdol said, we need the context.

    Re: Stocking

    Stalking was my first thought too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I got it. Yes, it is 'stalking'. (I overheard it in a conversation.)

    Thanks very much indeed.
