“An offense under [Section 42.07 of the Texas Penal Code] is a Class B misdemeanor, except that the offense is a Class A misdemeanor if the actor has previously been convicted under this section."

So where is the line between irritating and harassing? It seems that too many people believe that they have been “harassed” when, for example, their neighbor rudely suggests that the dog should stop barking. Also, is your boss’s constant emailing at work harassment?

Consider the severity of the law when considering whether or not harassment has occurred.
Was any part of the Harassment….
Obscene,
A threat to inflict bodily injury,
Alarming & False,
or a Torment?
If not, you were not likely harassed. In fact, most people who claim harassment are simply victims of mere jerkiness, which is not necessarily against the law.

If, however, someone has crossed the line (and there is no simple test to know for sure), you may have a criminal and/or a civil action against them. Consult an attorney with your specific facts.

Provocation covers an extensive variety of practices of a hostile nature. It is generally comprehended as conduct which irritates or surprises, and it is typically redundant. In the lawful sense, it is conduct which has all the earmarks of being aggravating or undermining.

I think that a debate between the difference of irritating and harassing is a good topic. All of us should know the boundaries and differences of these two words as these can be very important in our lives. At the same time, people shouldn't be sensitive over small things as it can be a big conflict for him and to the people around him!
