I want to second this. My sister went through a nasty divorce and as it was going through he would come to work and harass her through the drive through - where everyone could hear...He also said threatening things over the phone and everything else...there was no end to it. She would handle it wonderfully and just tell him he cannot talk to her like that or she will hang up on him because she doesn't need to take it and when he continued she did. She wasn't mean..just firm. My mom told her to document EVERYTHING as well...and well, it turns out that it helped LOTS! It's also good therapy for some.
Good Luck!! And definitely, tell someone!
