Pronunciation: eye pod

Sentence: Electronic devices have been a God-send for shy and somewhat bizarre people like Julie.

These poor guys don't even know they are being eyepawed by a stalker like Julie. Doesn't she watch CSI or Criminal Minds? This is how they eventually takedown people like her when the restraining order is enforced.
