Utility companies
My mum recently moved house and struggled to get the electricity connected.
She'd called the utility company prior to the move and organised for it to be switched on a couple of days before she planned to move in - the switch box was located on the front verandah, so there'd be no issues with accessibility while she wasn't there.

Moving day, and she arrives to find that the electricity hadn't been connected. She calls the utility company again, gets a bit of a run around as to why it hadn't been connected already, and a promise that an electrician will be out between 6pm and midnight that night to connect it.

Midnight comes and with it a remarkable lack of electricians.

The next morning, she makes another call to the utility company to find out what the hell's going on. Eventually through to a real person, she tells them that the electrician didn't turn up the night before to switch on the power, and asks if they can tell her quickly when he will be out, as after a couple of calls and a lot of time on hold with the utility company, her mobile battery is almost dead.
"You should have charged your phone before you called."
The phone monkey places her on hold briefly to call the electrician to see why they didn't turn up the previous night and when he'll be able to come out.
"He did go out there last night, but the lights were off, so he assumed nobody was home".

I believe other people have mentioned it
but I'm including a chart!

Disclaimer: chart found on internet many years ago, creator unknown, but it has helped me to win several arguments about the phrase.

» Stalked

I lack both the attention span and slack grasp on sanity to properly stalk anyone.
But I have been known to briefly tail unusual people I happen upon, more to sate my curiosity than anything.
Most recently I followed a guy who got off the train same stop as me. Why? I had to discover exactly what wondrous adventures someone who was wearing a chainmail tunic got up to on a Saturday morning in the city.
Disappointingly, it turns out that chainmail is not only the perfect outfit for dragon-slaying, but also for shopping with your girlfriend.
