That's worse than normal

There's a man on the board of WB who I've met a handful of times in the years I've worked here. Every time I've met him, he's done that thing where he stands too close and pays me a lot of exaggerated and physical attention without actually appearing to notice me as a person at all.

Even so, I didn't realize just how bad it was until just now, when he introduced himself to me, asking, "Have we met?" When I said we had several times, he asked if I'm a volunteer? I was sitting at my desk at the time, and said that, no, I've been an employee here for 2 1/2 years.

Oddly, I didn't find myself looking for ways to make the conversation less awkward for him, because wow.
