drop them a note
and then five minutes later the supervisor came over and said to me and this other lad that one of the girls said they heard a wolfwhistle in this area and that he doesn't know who it was but it's cause for instant dismissal
If that's not instant dismissal it's pretty sexist.
what if a girl wolf-whistles at a dude?
very unfair. you could basically get them all fired
giggling like children on the other hand.
Not too difficult a paradigm to understand, that.
You do realise that's essentially like coating yourself in honey and running through a bear cave on this site? Fidel_catstro just set sneer to kill, and in this particular case, rightly so.
really loudly. like the guy out of crash test dummies or something
Followed by a Sid James laugh and before commenting on the 'lavely bit 'a crampet'
Lots of crumpet in my office.
Every day I come in is a day I have a Frodo-esque ring-laden weight on my shoulders.
Congratulations to all the male DiS posters making jokes about how those CRAZED FEMINIST BITCHES!!! will be all over this, though. Well done, pals.
just make up a new variant of it.
You're more than welcome.
is it 1950s America? Didn't know this actually happened.
and one of them called my manager 'sweetheart' (as an insult), everyone else glossed over it but I was raging. Its such a weird thing to do in work, less acceptable than throwing a punch or stealing someones lunch.
I got beeped the other day whilst walking down the road eating a croissant
*cheer up darling, it might never happen* is still annoyingly common. But actual wolf-whistling seems a bit retro!
Gonna get fully into it - Listen to Talk Sport, have a copy of The Sun on the dashboard and honk/shout at any laydeez I see walking down the street.
No one's been sacked for this because no one ever finds out
is it appropriate to tell someone that they smell nice?
It's always nice to know.
Then again, I'm not a tightly wound, hormonal woman. They might feel differently on the subject.
but I didn't mean specifically at your place of work
I meant in general
but not your minge musk is bonering me up.
if I'm at the checkout in the local supermarket and the women who's standing behind me smells amazing it's OK to turn to her and say
"Oj vad gott du luktar! Vilken doft har du på dig?"
'cos I nearly did that yesterday but in the end I didn't
but it's a smell of a product she bought
how about if I liked her shoes and wanted to get a pair for my girlfriend. Can I say 'I like your shoes. Where did you get them?'
as in physical proximity. If you're within say 50cm, you're out. 50cm-1m, meeting with HR. 1m+, go for it.
like in a Carry On film?
He must be there now. Can we sack him from popular music website drownedinsound?
Not even Sean is daft enough to hire meths.
*supervisor running after him "fuckin get 'ere!"*
publically back, sack and cracked
